Mixed bag. The still itself is a five, no question. But the still to Sanke keg system is very hit and miss. I just spent a total of seven hours doing two runs that should have been two hours each. Sometimes the O-ring works great, but sometimes it doesn’t. The one that came with the kit worked fairly well, but it eventually gave way as O-rings tend to do. Got a pack of two inch O-rings to replace. Ended up going to three different stores even though, of course, they should all be the same. Something about the store bought ones just make getting a good seal very difficult. I have had to take lots of time stretching them to fit. Turn the heat on, vapor leaks. Try again. And so on. Sometimes for up to an hour. Always ends up working but it should not take this long. I gave in and bought their milk can because I’m tired of messing with it, maybe that’s what they wanted all along.
Reply from Brewhaus: The O-ring for tri-clamp ferrules is a special size, hence the issue in finding something suitable at a building supply store. This is not something of our doing, but the spec on an industry-standard fitting.
