Snaplock shank, or standard shank with adaptor, or a snaplock flanged tap boss

    Flange sounds good

    The flange (looks perty) is a bolt on with some kind of connector for the line, but no shank as such so the tap maybe a little warmer than if I had a shank in the keezer with a fan on it.. hmmm

    I love the craft. I showed your comment to a non brewer and they didn't understand a word. Gimme that secret handshake.

Has anyone attempted to "hard plumb" their kegs? Really getting tired of leaky gas connections

    Good ideas guys. I have the vinyl tubing, but I want to replace it with black nylon pneumatic tubing. Ideally, I'd like to attach a pushfit connection straight onto the keg. This will enable me to have industry standard pneumatic-grade components all the way through with no weak links.

    I welded snaplok fittings on all my kegs.I use snaplok gas and beer line check valves. Expensive fix, but no more leaking problems.

    A little update - all but 2 lines have slow leaks. Since the common factor between them are the cheap plastic disconnects, I reckon they're the culprit. SS ones on the way

Bitsa recipe greats. Only imposible to reproduce. Bummer. I have this Imperial Stout thing made of home canned leftover assorted worts and total mungrel mix of ingredients and it is soooo good. Yet imposible to reproduce another one. Oh well.

I derped my dry hopping last night and dropped the whole 250g in one go... was intending to split it over two steps, the second being into a clean FV. It's a good thing the beer on tap is really good otherwise I'd be angry at it.

    Pretty sure it must be at saturation by now. There was not an inconsiderable amount as whirlpool hops...

    only 1 lot of 250g dry hops?
    Lightweight.
    A malt driven beer, then.

    I remember the day so clearly, picking hops and breaking down a cone of Tettnang and taking a big sniff - passionfruit bomb, even got some flower stuck up the nose, it was a polarizing moment...wait, this probably isn't helping...

    Sh!t mate that’s no good. Got to look after your health first I say. Like the others are saying time to try some barley wines and stuff like Flanders red that need a lot of time to condition.

Straight from the horses mouth, La Chouffe yeast sediment is the same yeast as used in primary.

    ...if you like the flavours made by that yeast. I may be the only anti-Chouffer here, but I prefer the De Koninck yeast.

    hmmm.. Ive still got hops in my freezer 3+ years old and are fine.. not sure why you have this issue.

    2014 Hallertauer Mittelfrueh so I guess its just the lesser storability of that type. Tested Altbier with old hops compared to new. Big difference. The old hops taste stale, astringent and smell a little off.

    Very big difference storing cool and storing sub-zero. I also have old hops, but they smell as fresh as the day I put them in the freezer

Remember those Luney tunes cartoons (eg Bugs Bunny) when something stupid occurred and the all day sucker would pop up? I feel and see them sometimes when I'm brewing or ask questions here. :)

Just knocked over my co2, bits of regulator all over the place, beer on the... everything, cause the keg went down with it too. Pretty sure i lost like hlaf a gas bottle and need some new freakin eardrums. Was as loud as the scream containing bottles from mosters inc, so bad that I reckon a neighbor might call the terrorist hotline. Now gonna creep out the front of keg king until they open.
