Hey guys, So I was about to pull the trigger on buying the perlick 525ss' and hit a really dumb wall... Where to buy them from. - $58.27+shipping/tax for tap and shank... problem is the shank section of the store is said to go with the 400 series faucets

and of course, Amazon

$45.90 + $7.95 shipping + tax

Anywhere else to buy them, or which one should I get?

Probably going to be hard to beat the Amazon combo price - but do note that package uses a chromed shank.

For an all-stainless setup, has the 525SS Perls for $35, SS shanks are around $15, SS tail pieces for $3, SS beer nut for $1. So call it $54 all up except for a tap handle, plus shipping (I doubt they collect out-of-state sales taxes)...


[edit] And the Ritebrew link is for the chromed 525PC, not the SS...

Here's the stainless one from RiteBrew:

It's about $10 cheaper with shipping right now from Adventures in Homebrewing, but if you're buying anything else with it, you'll tend to get a better overall price from RiteBrew. I just ordered four 525SS faucets, shanks, and various other things, and it ended up being $20 cheaper through RiteBrew, so consider your full order in it.

I recently bought 4 from Adventures in Homebrewing and am very happy. It was the best price I could find at the time (about 2 months ago).

If you are in Newport beach, you can drive down here to San Diego and go to Beverage Factory and will call them for free, Plus Beverage factory is right next to Ale smith, rough draft, white labs, and a stones through from a dozen other breweries. And they are open Saturdays from 10am till 2pm. The 525ss are $32 and the 575ss are $36.
