    Food grade buckets??

    Can anyone tell me if these buckets are food grade. Not trying to be a cheap skate but the bird fat balls came in them and if I can repurpose them into brewing buckets I could get a couple of more brews on tomorrow 😉 Thanks

    Too slow a flow?

    Hi knowledgeable peeps, Would you be happy with this flow rate or is it a tad to slow? Might just be I am used to a pour from a flow control tap straight off the keg. I got the 2 keg kit from BKT so the beer line is 3/16 Cheers Gwen

    Storing Cony kegs

    I now have 3 corny kegs waiting to be filled. 2 just arrived from BKT and they were pressurised. So it got me thinking. 🤯 There is going to be times when they are going to be empty, so how should I store them. Lid closed up or off? Pressurised or unpressurised? Or does it not matter? Thanks Gwen
