Hi all,

I found these taps and am curious to know if anyone has them or has an opinion on the quality.
I'm looking at putting a keg system together.

I have one of those (and a couple of Cellis) and it's a piece of shit.
Worked ok for a few months, but the cone piece is made of copper which gradually wore down where the flow controller keys into it.

The one you have linked to says that it has all stainless internal parts but I wouldn't take their word for it. I bought mine from the same place only 6 months ago.

beertapstore (ebay user brauman) - just email him for a quote and to work out postage costs (too hard on ebay)

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Perlick-525ss-f...=item3a7150af02

oh! it's just gone up in price since a month ago!

also farmhouse brewing (slow response, marginally cheaper)
But these are not flow control taps. The OP was referring to flow control taps.
These from the same seller are flow control taps: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Perlick-Perl-54...=item3a73f11e38

I'd assume at $145 delivered, Matt has figured that out and got a quote for the flow control taps.

This was for the link above provided by Seamax.
The flow control taps are an extra $10 per tap so $165 delivered for 2

check out any other parts available in the shops, often it doesn't cost much more in post to throw in some other fittings.

As above... you'll probably need a medium USPS box (max 20lb) so might as well chuck in some disconnects, etc etc

As I said, send him (Nick) an email asking what you want and he will reply the next day , payment by Paypal.

Happy customer here, got my tap in 8 business days.

Nick has already come back to me with the above prices and I'll certainly look at throwing extras in.
Thanks again
