Always have a spare tap!

Recommended Posts

I've found that these white Coopers taps brake quite easily, both in the seal and the little plastic snappy bits that twist and lock together. I haven't got one with the new double-o-ring seal yet, but I have one on the way as I just had to crack open the spare again.

And that's the moral of the story - for under $6 (including free delivery), having a spare tap on hand is a no brainer for when you start brewing only to find your current tap is broken.

Also, pays to be gentle with these when taking apart and putting back together. The plastic tags ideally should be larger and thicker that hold the two shells together, otherwise a brilliant design.

I haven't had a drama with my newer one (double oring) but will now ensure I am careful.

Will throw one on my next bottle order from Coopers too :).

Thanks!

Hmmm I must be lucky, haven't broken one in what 5 years of brewing? I use them until the seal wears out, take apart after every batch to clean.

Cheers,
