I pictured something like that

(here's another one for @HBT_Admin , the video quote's text is off)
For an example of what i can do with a picnic tap, i will attempt, to get TOO much head next pour! this beer is 100% victory malt, and doesn't seem to have much head retention. but we'll see if i can still get a pillow with my picnic tap!



(and yes, i thought i was going to have to get defensive at jibing. but that's exactly it! :p)

Does your lense need cleaning or you leave vaseline on it for soft focus portraits?
Or just preparation for the so shiny new taps and to protect our eyes.

of course i was looking at the tracking number, and apparently the email was from the future because the label was created at 7:48pm 7-21-21....that was at noon today? 🤞

Unrelated to SS picnic taps, but since we are all talking about picnic taps - how do you guys store yours when in use. I usually try to hang off the handle of one of my cornys with the tap handle, but it is not very secure. Any suggestions?

Color me intrigued; what mean you by these "bases" things for a picnic tap?

I believe this will help explain the base

When I used a keezer with picnic taps, I would leave a hand towel folded up on top of one of the kegs and park the taps there, and any drip would end up on the towel.

Good News everyone! i took the drippy one apart, and streched the spring in it a bit. problem solved! :mug:

I'm back to being a relatively happy camper! might strech the other one too just to be safe..... damn they do feel nice, but cold.....not sure if that's a feature or problem.....(maybe they should be coated in plastic as insulation? LOL j/k)
