Thats true Dale. A couple of dumps just before bottling/kegging works well. Just not sure how clear each glass would be for the first third or so of the brewhemoth if you fermented and served out of it....by the glass.

Thats nothing negative about the brewhemoth specifically, i get the same thing from kegs when i dont use a clearing agent. First third of the keg is a bit cloudy, but clears up over time and pours.

That is the part that I was wondering about next. I have not kegged and connected to a tap before so this question may sound newbish: How much psi can a tap hold back? Or maybe the proper question would be what is the proper serving psi and why?

I am estimating that the brewhemoth will have around 20-30 psi to start with and then slowly loose psi as the tank empties. I want to do this with the natural co2 and psi only, no external co2 tanks if possible. Any thoughts?

Without co2 back pressure you'll end up with dribble pours and flat beer.

Download a psi vs temp for volumes of co2 you want in your beer and adjust your beer line length and size accordingly.

http://www.homebrew.com/pdfs/CO2chart.pdf

So example, if you serve your beer at 36F and want your beer carbonated to 2.5 volumes of co2, you would want to maintain a keg psi of 10-11psi. This is static and shouldnt change for the whole keg dispensing.

You also want a good consistent pour from your tap, like filling a pint in 6-8 seconds. To do this you need to adjust the total length of your beer line...shorter the beer line, less restriction and a faster pour. Longer means more restriction and a slower pour.

Most beer line runs of under 8ish feet would typically use 3/16" beer line. Start with 8 feet and check your pour. If its too slow, cut a foot off and try again until you get the pour you want while maintaining the 10-11 psi in your keg.

Make sense?

If you make a wide range of beer and want every keg to pour nice and have the proper volumes of co2 in it, you'll need several beer lines. A shorter one for stout for instance, and a long one for wheat beers..

Alright guys last ? I promise...... maybe lol but I've looked all over where I thought this might be on brewershardware but didn't see it. Is this a custom piece. Any info on it? Is this complete custom from brewershardware. I'm fine with that just would like to know specs.
It's post number 391 on page 40

I did say last question lol cuz I knew there would be a followup. Where on the brewhemoth did you utilize. My though is I want to use it for oxygenation and maybe some co2 to help rouse the yeast when fermenting high Abv beers like 120 minute. Are you utilizing morebeers yeast harvester as well or just using it in an additional fitting you had added. Thanks so much for your reply!

Doc, isn't it easier to oxygenate when running through your chiller with an inline stone on your chiller output? Just thinking if you add something like this to your fermenter you have to have one on each fermenter.

For most beers this is true and I plan on doing so with my sabco chill wizard, but I plan on brewing higher gravity beers such as Scotland's 120 minute clone which has multiple dextrose additions and a wlp 099 pitch after initial fermentation is done. The way things are looking I'm gonna get a extra fitting for a thermowell and one for an oxygenation stone unless someone can explain why it wouldn't be a good idea.
