    Which faucet angler will angle the handle vertically

    I purchased this angler and it does not angle the handle vertically on my perlick 525's. I foolishly assumed it would. Does anyone know of a brand that will? http://www.kegconnection.com/faucet-angler/

    How long do you dry hop?

    I was wondering what everyone's preference is for dry hop length? Are there any advantages/disadvantages to a set amount of time? Please vote in the poll and give your reasoning if you feel like it. I usually do two weeks, but I have heard this is too long. :mug:
