Title: Hand pull set up
Post by: Shakey_Dog on November 28, 2004, 04:26:01 AM
Has anyone seen, or have a hand pull set up at home? I have done some looking and cannot find a set up for home.

I think it would be really cool to do this   8)

That would be the bomb-diggity. I love hand-pulled ales. Like you've probably done, I've hunted out beer engine setups on eBay and the like, only to be thwarted by the exhorbitantly high prices, and the likelihood that all the necessary pieces and parts aren't there. I'd love to build one myself, but I don't know where to start. Apparently, however, Dan Listermann (the guy behind all the "Phil" brand homebrew products) is developing or has developed his own version of a beer machine. I'd love to get my hands on one of these, once I'm in a more permanent living situation :)

I saw this a bit ago.

Put your beer into a corny keg, lay it down on it's side with the "gas in" down,  Raise the bottom several inches.
Reverse the in and out's,  Put the CO2 on the beer out line (1 psi, just to cover the beer) and put a picnic tap on the Gas in.

This must be used with the tap lower than the keg because gravity will dispense the beer.

If you let air cover the beer you better drink it within a couple of days.

I'll keep an eye out for the source and post it if I see it.

Jan BYO tells how to build your own engine. How's that for timing?
