Sticky faucets if you don't pull from one for a few days are my main complaint, but that's not unique to this setup I don't think.

When you can, invest in Perlick faucets. They're completely 'stick-free'. Awesome faucets.

For sure! Took me over 15 years but I did it.

bought my sanyo in 1998 upon return from Germany tour. fits 3  of the shorter profile 5 gal kegs and co2. has worked great for all these years.

3 kegs?  Did you remove the interior of the door?

I fit two in mine, and fill the door with stored yeast slurries.

no..although i cant say my interior extrudes very far though. mine fits a 1/2 keg and 5lb co2, so no issues with 3 5 gal kegs (as is said must use 2 of my shorter no black base kegs)

Ken, I can do one better, but no picture. In 1990 or so, I worked at BW3 as GM. We got a 7 foot tall cardboard cut out of the Rumpleminze Vixen and had her just inside the entrance of our house. Very cheesy, but also a lot of fun back I  those days. Some great drunken photos, wish I still had them

yep would have loved one of those in my pool table room

I believe my first ever drinking party with friends was 1983. No SN. Stroh's and peppermint snapps.
Rumplemintz?

ha! Great guess. That was a couple years later and 101 proof as I recall. It was probably arrow or even a lesser brand.

Yep I lived the joy and pain of rumplemintz back in the day.

Yes Mark has some great knowledge and expertise with yeast. Ive tried his approach for my ales with smaller starter pitched at high krausen and cant say I find anything wrong with it. I have not done it with lagers mostly because of the volume of the starter and it worries about pitching all that DME wort into my lager. one day perhaps I will brave it and try and see .....just haven't gotten there yet  ;D
I just tried it with my Märzen yesterday. I also, with some trepidation, cut my usual starter size by about a third, bringing it down to about 7% of the total volume in the fermenter. I brew this recipe all the time, so it should be a good test to see if it has a noticeable difference in flavor (pro or con). I'm hoping that the health of the yeast I'm pitching will offset the reduced cell count, and that since the starter is at high krausen it shouldn't be introducing any oxidized wort character. I have high hopes since the starter took off like a rocket (comparatively, for this this yeast at least) and smelled good at pitching time.

that's good to know; yes please report back on results....very interested.
