    So frustrating....

    Hi I gave up with pressure barrels and switched to bottle's then cornys and haven't had any experience with top taps but have you tried gassing it up and spray some starsan or soapy water round all the seals to see if there's any leaks. I feel your pain but don't give up on a wonderful hobby...

    What do people use to help clear their beer?

    I've been useing ½ protofloc at 10 mins and Harris starbrite before cold crashing at 3° for 3 days before bottling/ keging seems to work well. I never really bothered about cloudy beer though as long as it tastes good not sure why I've started worrying about it now, guess it's just progression.
