Perlick 650SS Flow Control Faucet
Perlick's NEW 304 stainless steel, forward sealing beer and wine faucets are unique in both appearance and function. A revolutionary ball and floating front seal design prevents beer from being exposed to air. As a result, the handle lever doesn't stick, and there is no build up of mold and bacteria in the faucet body. Fewer internal parts means better reliability and fewer service calls.
In addition to the Perlick exclusive forward sealing design features, the 650SS Forward Sealing Flow Control Faucet features a flow compensator. The flow compensator provides more control because by adjusting the flow control handle, you can adjust the restriction for hard to pour brands. You can also adjust the flow control handle to slow the flow for pouring sampler glasses, flights or growlers as well as to reduce the amount of foam when pouring into a frosted glass.

If you are building a kegerator or keg system, just save yourself a lot of trouble and buy these now. You'll avoid a lot of headache / heartache. I started with cheap faucets for my keezer, then upgraded to standard Perlicks, then finally found these. If you love reading Beersmith articles about balancing keg lines with equations and distance measurements then save some money, do the math, and use standard taps and balance your lines. But if you want to literally *turn a knob on the side of the tap* and balance your line (regardless of pressure or line-length / diameter) then buy these. It is like a why-didn't-I-think-of-this-before epiphany. By the time I found these I had already spent more money - not to mention time - on keg lines than I spent on the premium you pay for these taps. Especially if you are mixing at different carbonation levels for different batches these make balancing lines completely trivial.
Works perfect! Took care of my stuck faucet issues and flow. Perfect draft every time.
These things just work. Nice for a first time thru-wall keezer design, and the adjustment is working nice for three taps so far (of 4 installed - last one finishing fermenting) for pressures ranging from 8 to 30 psi (high one is mineral water and awesome).
Purchased these after doing a bunch of research on taps. The flow control feature does seem to work well, but I suspect it won't fix all line balancing issues. One minor issue I read about before hand is the sulfur smell and taste some people get with these due to the use of different types of s.s. in the flow control valve parts. I ran line cleaner for an extended amount of time and a double strength Star San solution for an extended amount of time through these before their first use to hopefully negate this. It seems that I still have the slightest 'sulfury-ness' sometimes for the first 1oz or 2, but maybe that's just paranoia. There is a way to treat the stainless at home if you have this issue, google it.
I have 4 of these on my keg fridge. Since I always screw up the carb pressure, the flow control is a great feature, it lets me adjust the back pressure so the beer doesn't come out all foam.
