    Season Ticket Renewals

    Good bye season tickets, you were always with me since the age of 5 (when my dad started taking me to games, and put in my name about 25 years ago) you never complained or ****ed or moaned. You were the perfect non wife I never had. Two of those have gone by the wayside (never again!) But I will always back my Skins!! I'll go to a few games a year still, maybe more, but two tickets will be available in 225 row 1 when the upgrading starts folks, they were good seats, go grab em!

    Rick the perlick faucets are self cleaners, you should never see any yeast build in them if ever, except on the threads that the shank nut tightens on for the faucet

    No you don't need the PH testers , especially with such short lines , you will be able to see the changeover from cleaner to beer , which should only be a few seconds, just count to 3 after it turns to beer and you're fine. Yea they will have to drill a hole in your box for the other gas tank , might as well just have them run both outside as long as there is room where it won't interfere with the compressor and stuff , and they SHOULD run a braided high pressure line for the Guinness P.S. Perlick faucets are self cleaners meaning you don't have to remove them and disassemble to clean them , just check the rear washer every now and then for wear and replace if necessary, do not remove all the interior seals and crap on them , you need a special tool to get them back in

    First off those spring loaded faucets are crap, and probably coated with stainless steel, and over time, that layer will wear off inside the faucet exposing the brass core its wrapped around on the plunger, which in most cases will give your beer a off taste. What ever faucets you go with, make sure they are totally stainless steel (those are always more expensive then the coated ones) To clean the guiness line if you buy one of those bottles you have to make sure it has a hookup for the European coupler, your best bet is to just buy one of these and get two hook ups on it, one for normal couplers and one for the guiness , there is a 2.5 gallon model (pictured) and a 5 gallon model, same size as a sixtel of beer Micromatic makes the best coupler and faucets for guinness, so goto their site to find those , perlick makes a guinness coupler but its crap in my opinion The slow pour faucet for guinness and other nitro beers arent front or rear sealing , its totally different than normal faucets, get the micromatic one here as well. Also you need a 75/25 nitrogen/c02 blend to run guinness, dont try to run it off of c02, it will taste horrible and make the keg go flat. At the same time dont run normal beers off of the 75/25 blend, your keg will go flat. So basically for guinness you need to run a separate gas source for it. Ditch the spring loaded faucets all together, its a gimmick so you dont have to push the handle back when finished pouring, we call those the lazy mans faucets in my line of work (im a draft technician lol) At a minimum you want to can your lines every month, the brewers association suggests every 2 weeks because yeast and bacteria start to grow in your lines at about 1.5 weeks, but on a kegerator where the lines are short once a month will suffice. Ive never used the cheap line cleaning materials and equipment so i cant comment on those, but stay away from the powder cleaners and use only approved liquid caustic and acid cleaners. Acid line cleaning is done 4 times per year(once per quarter) it removes beer stone where as caustic cleaners do not.

    Got the grill today, w00t, its bad ass! I had a project to do today so I didnt get to play with it, plus I need to buy some gas and let her burn for 20-30 minutes, so I'll shoot for the weekend since the rain will be on/off until then. The cover for this thing is amazing, its what the old weber covers USED to be, thick, heavy and triple stitched, now weber covers are junk and crack easily He does Ive had it a few times lol
