I just sampled this White Wheat beer before kegging it. I must say this is the best tasting beer I have ever made. Good hop presence but not overwhelming.

The guy making my new tap handle sent me a picture of his work.

I collect chess sets and they are integrated into the design of my man cave. So of course my kegerator has to be integrated in. I am upgrading to a duo tapper. This is the same guy that made my last tap handle.

Has anybody ever adapted a 20 oz C02 bottle and regulator to fit a ball lock quick connect?

What is he supposed to do with the beer if he doesn't want it? It would be a waste to throw it away when someone else might like it.

One from my own experience
Everything I pull out of my deep freeze smells like hops.

My duo tap tower and hardware to install it are due to be delivered today. It is a 3 inch tower that will be replacing a 2 1/2 inch tower so I will be doing some modification to bolt it on. No problem. What I am apprehensive about is the modification to my regulator. I need to take the shutoff valve off, put a splitter on, and put the shutoff valve and the new shutoff valve onto that. And I have never been any good with that teflon tape crap. I have been watching youtube videos on how to do it. Once I get passed that I have a red ale that I just tapped into and a nice White Wheat beer that I will be kegging this weekend.

I wasn't sure what to do with my old tower. Then I got the idea of attaching it to a garbage can lid. A brand new garbage can just for this. I found one at Mennards with a really nice flat heavy duty lid. I am going to put a 10 gallon cooler in the can to hold my keg. Then I can just put ice around it. I am going to convert a 20 oz C02 bottle like they use in paint guns to gas it. It won't carbonate the keg but it will dispense it. And wala I will have a picnic kegerator for barbeques and stuff.

Waste not want not.

Or do air locks remind anybody else of coffee percolators?

Does anybody know what is going on with the Kansas home brew bill?

Was it one of these

I got one of those and went through the same process. I cleaned mine up with vinegar. I figured since it was a brushed finish it was a by product of the manufacturing process. There shouldn't be any lead in it. It is steel.
