Everclear 151 ... can be used right out of the bottle ... without any risk of toxicity (unless you drink it. lol ;-).


Truth.  I did some rigorous testing on this when stuck in a blizzard on my 19th birthday.  To this day I will solemnly aver that the only safe application for Everclear involves a bottle which will spray it directly away from your person.  ;D

I'll bet the hangover was a b****!   :D

The new Perlick faucets have arrived and are installed.  Just a simple and beautiful design.  I have high hopes that the stuck faucet problem is a thing of the past.  They do seem to allow a greater flow than the previous faucets, so I still need to tweak my pressures a bit.  But everything is working well so far.  Enjoying the first poured stout as I type this.

I'd rather have questions I can't answer than answers I can't question.

I have Perlick fwd sealing flow control faucets connected directly to the keg QD(s). I like this set up because I have no beer lines to clean, get a great pour, and no sticking between pours. I’ve heard folks getting leaks, all sorts of bad pours, and other problems but I haven’t had these issues with my faucets.

This is what I do also. I have three flow control faucets: two Perlick and one Intertap. All work well.
