    Crown urn wont heat over 49 deg.

    I had same problem, then i began this process. After each batch I clean most of the shit off with scratch less scourer, then use a little car polish on it and make sure no residue is left behind.

    Overseas travel

    With cellular data off, you simply can't use phone to call anywhere which makes it financially safer. We spent most of our time in one country, so we take an old Nokia with us and buy a local pre paid sim card to make calls, at least that way you get no nasty surprises! Cheers

    CO2 Regulators

    I have had 2 Tesuco's for 2 years and bought a micromatic 2 months ago. IMO micromatic is a much better reg. Both TheTesuco's creeped for one......and as you pour a beer they don't release gas until the pressure falls about 5 kpa lower than what it's set at...... Cheers
