Subject: RE: Lagerphone build recommendations please!
I once thought about making one. To be authentic about it, I asked Michael at Sandy Bells if he could save me the tops off any Australian beers he sold. He said they didn't bother stocking it any more as they couldn't sell it.

I could try one of the Australian theme pubs in town. Guess I'd have to decide if I was going for a New South Wales, Victoria or Queensland model, and choose the appropriate brand (or do they still drink beer in Queensland? maybe they all just get high on cane toad slime these days).

The icky bit is getting the seal out of the caps. With cork, you can just set them on fire. The plastic inners you get in modern caps would leave a sticky carbonized mess.
