Hallamshire Brewery Supplies would be my first bet

It would have take less effort to type cask breather into Google, that's what I did.

Well in that case why bother with the forum at all. We can just google all our queries.

Do you need a breather? I have the pressure set low and a check valve between keg and beer engine.

I have a check valve but the beer engine just ends up pulling a vacuum in the keg I could always leave c02 line out the coupler then use beer engine and just gas it when I'm done. Don't like the thought of that though

Thanks. I forgot to tell you that old rosie yeast I had left is happily fermenting 2 gallons of cider. Didn't take long to start either. Not bad after 2 years in a fridge

Or you could try Colin Farrar Brewery Supplies, or the one I've been trying to think of since you posed the question Barley Bottom Paul's a great guy, can't see cask breather listed but he is worth a call.

I managed to harvest over 20 viles from it on the stir plate over a 1 month period, so my stock is now back to normal. :thumb: Many thanks

I have a check valve and that's the way I do it. Problem is the check valve is upstairs screwed to the back of the chest freezer. Now the bar is downstairs so even with the check valve in line beer still flows slightly through the beer engine when I'm not pulling a pint. I'm guessing it's gravity playing a part in this. Would it be better to put the check valve under the beer engine at the bar?
