Default NEW How-To Video - "Transferring Your Beer From A Secondary Fermeter To A Keg"


Since the very beginning of our existence as a company, we've been asked many questions regarding homebrewing and draft beer equipment.

Recently, we started recording some videos (how to's and product showcases) for homebrewers to be able to reference when in need.

Our first newly produced video is a how to on transferring your beer from a secondary fermenter to a homebrew keg[/url]. The production of this video is relevant not only because it's a common question we get, but also because we have recently started offering homebrew ingredients and supplies on our site as well as all the other draft beer equipment we've been selling for years!

We'd love to hear your input on the information presented in this video, what you might change, and any ideas you have for future videos we should produce.


cheers,

Kegconnection LLC

Pretty decent production quality. I like the multiple angles and music.

Great video. I'd love to see more in the future. Is/Will this be posed on your site?

I pretty much do the same thing when Kegging my brew. It is nice to see a video though so thank you and would love to see more.

Production value is great, but two things come to mind that could have been mentioned, although they may be more technical than what you were going for. First is purging the keg with CO2 before transferring and second is using CO2 to push the beer rather than using an autosiphon. Both will go a long way in preventing oxidation.

Thank you for your feedback! We were trying to keep it as simple as possible but might either make another video about purging the keg & using CO2 to push the beer (vs autosiphon) OR add it to this current video.

cheers,

Nicely done video, and not only are things like this a nice public service for the homebrew community, they reflect well on your company and keeps your name in people's minds <g>.

I just kegged my first batch last weekend, from reading this forum I had pretty much figured out how to do it, but your video would have been great to see beforehand...

Interesting point on sanitation being "not quite so important" (or words to that effect) at this point, after fermentation. That had never occurred to me, and I had always stressed out a little bit with my sanitation & cleanliness at this point (when bottling as well). Maybe now I can relax a little more <g>.

Just my $0.02, the bit about purging the keg would have been a good addition to this video. That was the one thing I thought was missing, because it's easy and worth the effort. A video about pushing out of a carboy with CO2 would be really great. I think that's a desperate video though, since it's more of an advanced method.
