|Stir Rod stuck inside the ball|
To get it out I was forced to open my ball valve, which has never done. the valves have been in use since last May when then conical was purchased. The insides of the valve was pretty bad, probably 8 batches of beer have gone through this valve and it was overdue for a cleaning. Of course, this prompted me to disassemble the racking arm valve, which happened to be in worse shape, and do the same exact thing.
I see butterfly valves in my future
