    Hi All

    Just picked up my Crown Urn and moving into the world of Biab. Just wondering if I could get some advice on how to remove the the urn tap, I have a ball valve tap ready to go but I'll be buggered if I can release the nut on in the inside of the urn.

    Should I boil a few litres to see if that helps?

    Did you just use a shifter on the inside?

    Old thread, same topic..

    I'm trying to replace my crown urn tap with a shifting spanner and it is starting to bend the actual nut.. any suggestions?

    Being a bit of a spanner myself when it comes to tools any suggestions would be appreciated. :unsure:

    For anyone that looks at this later on, this was the easy fix.

    From the grain and grape website actually: Tip - remove it with a spanner on the tap on the outside of the urn. Trying to undo the nut on the inside doesnt work nearly as well.

    I did it while the urn was upside down and just slowly put my weight on the spanner.

    Success :D
