Anyone Ever see one of these things?
I'm always up for buying new beer toys but I've never seen anything like this?

I read the Austrailian equilvent of the homebrew digest. So that is what they look like! Thanks.

You haven't got anything similar in the states?!

Pluto guns have been around for many years here in Aus. They are commonly used at outdoor events etc and even in the back-of-house bars in some large hotels etc. Obviously a lot more mobile than a font. You can borrow them from a lot of country pubs when you buy a keg of swill for your wedding along with a gas bottle and a 'pluto box' for chilling said swill.

They have the same kind of mechanics as a standard beer tap inside.

Wortgames,

What's one of these do that a $7 plastic tap won't?

John - they both do basically the same job, this is just the more professional option. It's a lot more rugged, a lot easier for busy bar staff to pick up and operate, it reaches further down into the glass for less foaming etc. Seal kits sre readily available and cost next to nothing.

Just out of interest, what would the staff at a large hotel in the states use to fill a tray full of glasses at a function?! Surely not a $7 plastic picnic tap?
