Thanks. First time I've placed beyond mini-BOS in my limited experience in competitions.

I see they've posted, but I don't see any results on the brewing competition website.Yeah no scoresheets or scores yet... Just if you won or not.
They used to wait until all the regionals were tabulated, but changed to the current model. The old way would always be hung up on one tardy region. I like the current way better, personally.When the results were all released at once, and one region was late with the data, there was a lot of complaining from those that did not know if they should re-brew.
It is fun when you win a medal. This year my fun will be applauding and cheering for those I know who win medals.
They also sell thicker cord stock and you can make your own 9864k33. These are 5/16 for old wore out kegs.
I'd probably just buy a new poppet, to be honest. I do really like the universals, have them for all my kegs.
I have a keg with a bad popette (yes I should replace it and I even have the new piece, just haven't done it yet) when I remove the gas QD it starts losing gas through the post. I can jimmy with the popette and it stops but I don't trust that keg for long term storage. You could well have a popette with a slow leak. it wouldn't show up while the gas was connected.
That's good. You wouldn't want all that weight on solid copperIs that copper on the legs?
From the Northern Brewer site, Question and Answer section:
"The copper pieces on the Bru Burner are copper plated, not painted"
So not solid copper but not painted either. Either way, its a think of beauty.
I know that the corny keg posts are different, but I don't know why it was ever setup this way. Most kegs are labeled inlet and outlet so you can tell which post/disconnect belongs where, but I don't know why.
Of the four kegs I have I am 99.999% sure there are no labels on the kegs identifying which post is which and even if there were labels there is always the chance that after cleaning I accidentally reverse the tubes.
I've been using Oxyclean on my better bottles for years with no problems (and some soaks have been weeks) but I don't use any of the accessories.
Competitor to BB? Just about everyone offers a BB-like fermenter these days, including Northern Brewer who has one with a wide opening.
Sorry for your frustration.
Unless, Lars has recontaminated the equipment during the replacement process...
