Hi Guys,

I have come across some andale tap heads that seem to be made of a ceramic material.

Does anyone know what year these are from and if they are still made?

I have attached a picture.

gday brenton
i purchased a similar ceramic handle only its all green and in excellent condition on ebay.its got the same cascade pale ale logo and the seller - from tasmania-said these are no longer made.so i would guess they have only gone out of circulation in the past 5-10 years.it looks absolutely grouse on the anndale tap along side the other anndale with the wood handle from gmk that i have on my fridge.

gday ken
i reckon i hit the jackpot on ebay.i got mine for $10. and its in excellent condition.looks like it was never used.i was stoked that i was the only bidder for it.started at 10 bucks and finished at 10 bucks.seller was probably pissed off but hey thats ebay for you.
ken have you any idea on there service dates?
im just guessing they have been out of service for quite some time.

For a home brewer...

I think you should only have to service them once a year.

Ie pull apart, clean, check and LUBE.

Then you can put a kit thru them if need be.

Hope this helps

Ken,

I think he meant when the tap heads were in service (used) in pubs :p
