I spent a year in England and never heard of it. 17 years brewing and learn something new every day..gotta love it !!
Consumers tend to refer to them as handpulls, because that's all they can see from their side of the bar, beer engine is more the official name that refers to the whole unit. They're never referred to as "taps" - tap is a verb in a cask pub.

I ventured into a pub or 2. I was more interested in the brew they were handing me than what tap or pull they were coming out of ! Quite a few Fullers ESB, Theakston old ale and some local British cider, can't remember the name just now ...in Gloucester England near the castle of the same name where they filmed Hogwarts in Harry Potter. Almost as equally fun as my 2 years in Germany !!!

Rechargeable batteries for all things including homebrewing, and (not by mail, but local pick up) 4 cases of flip tops and a 1.75G mini keg so I can bring pressurized beer to tailgates instead of growlers from now on.

the flip tops are for my sister who is becoming quite the mead maker.

That might be the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while!!!
I can see it turning round and round in your head Camonick....which of your fire engines might you get away with it. You will either go down in history as the most famous and beloved fire and rescue guy in the history of your rampart and town...or get fired and vilified...50/50 chance as I see it

So I guess by this time next week it should be smooth flowing.

But you won't be allowed to drink any beer.

The wife has started letting me have 1 or 2 on the weekends. It's been almost 5 months since the heart attack, sugar is under control, I've lost 20 pounds so I'm back at my Army and high school weight !!! Lowest weight in 25 years. And I finish 3 months of cardiac Rehab next week. But that's why I got the Tapcooler, so I can hand out more beer to the neighbors and friends.

Yeast so I can do the inaugural brewing with the new Anvil 10.5. Local supply shop closed last week, was sold to a new guy who hopefully will open it again soon. But I never got him to stock any decent wyeast. He like dry and I hate dry yeast. So I had to order from the next closest store in Ozark MO.

In my case, it's what didn't come in the mail today, or more accurately UPS. Made a mistake on my delivery address saying that I live on 3rd Ave E instead of the correct 3rd Ave N. Of course, UPS can't figure the difference out and won't let me change it, so I had to contact Northern Brewer. Hopefully they can straighten it out before UPS gives up and returns it.

Of course, the order contains what I need for my next brew day, the Sierra Nevada Pale clone kit from NB.
