    Pressure barrels

    I think Keg Land may have bought the name King Keg, then again they may not. Consider A Beer King Keg System

    Keg King's Round Table

    Yes the Snubnose with the cone helps for yeast collection and more importantly getting the last dregs out of the fermenter. The other two options the Junior and the Chubby Junior are a good choice if wanting to serve direct from the fermenter. They all come as standard with the pressure kit, the...

    Pressure barrels

    I agree I am not familiar with the pressure barrels sold in the UK, I do have insulated barrels but they have a 'D' coupler as well as a tap. I think for those who do have trouble and there does seem to be a lot to get the Junior for dispensing. I am sure that an insulated jacked could be...

    Vintage Beers

    I have just made a historical bitter (Terry Wheeler recipe) I added a fair bit of Munich to it cant get anything like the old style malts over here. I also favour the more bitter taste the one I made was 70 IBU and around 5.5% ABV. You will have to find somewhere to keep your beer under 20 C...

    Joke of the day.

    Robbie Williams, Elton John and Kylie Minogue went out on the town, returning to their hotel Kylie stumbles and gets her head caught in some railings, quick as a flash Robbie ups her skirt and downs her knickers, gives her a good rogering and turns to Elton John and asks if he would like a turn...
