Here you go. I've had a few messages asking for more pics and thoughts on different ways to set up the unit. To be honest, the problem with these portable setups is the lack of balancing and back pressure. So you can try what you like with different taps, different flow restrictors, different regulators, etc. You're always going to get the same result. If you just want beer for a picnic and you'll be the one serving, then it's easy enough to turn off the gas, bleed the pressure, then slowly feed on the gas while you open the tap. But if you want something that people can help themselves to - get a 9L corny, a few metres of beer line and a tap through an esky.

You can see in the pics the plastic flow restrictor that I was talking about. You can also see the regulator - this one accepts 12g and 16g soda bulbs and allows a bit finer control. It was about $5 more than the keg king style one from memory.

, I may end up getting a sample of each in to check before we do anything at all yet.
Yob, good science and research costs money and in light of your QA efforts on behalf of the group, PM me your bank account details and I'll flick $10 over to you for this BB research / sample procurement.

iKegger might offer one of his 2L units at risk or at a proportion of price for our evaluation through Yob.

Where I imagine this possibly going is

Evaluation Criteria
- Mass - gauging steel wall thickness
- pouring efficacy
- stainless quality - some simple oxidation chemistry to do
- [Any more team?]

Units to compare (3)
- Crunched - would you potentially supply Yob with one of the set you own? Incentive: we pay freight to and from for a 2l unit and a few of us send you a tallie of our better batches in thanks. If other AHB members join the scientific research pledge then we might even take one off your hands for a number you're happy with.
- iKegger 2l. Provided to Yob free for evaluation only, or at a proportion of cost to participate.
- New Supplier to be identified.

Potential pay offs
- Crunched has his keg returned cleaned and a pledge of tallies from the AHB community.
- iKegger stumps up a sample with potential to win the full size of this bulk buy in addition to the street cred. (You'll need to be prepared for community review and support en mass in this public domain)

Well, there are a couple of loose ends still in this IDEA, and like anything, open to negotiation to reach satisfaction.

Where would the samples go at the end of all this....Well who knows... Yob might keep them and donate $80 to starlight foundation helping kids have fun while they can.

Only an IDEA. there are simpler approaches.

Yep, I've seen those, not the ones I'm looking at though, they make ones with ball lock connections. I'm guessing that the type of gas charger will largely not adress the foaming issues.

Maybe I need to get one of each ;)

SNAP
Ball lock FTW.

Maybe Yob can chuck $1-2 onto everyone's total at the end of the BB (you KNOW this'll go ahead somehow eventually [emoji57]) to cover some of his R&D. Seems fair and easy - not profiteering, just covering costs of a sample or 2, which obviously he'll keep as a *tiny* benefit of being the organizer of this mammoth task). I'd happily pay a dollar or 2 (or 3!) to have a little more reassurance these won't start rusting in 3 months time.

Mutha, now I'm gonna have to put my name onto that infernal list! I'm meant to be on holidays!!
