  • Posted in thread: New stainless base elements showing brass color? on 07-28-2015 at 12:52 PM
    Just out of curiosity, is there anything concerning about being with zinc covered copper
    elements?Easy fix.

    Also, I planned on using one 2000w element. Is this going to be a problem?The one from HD is 15
    amps. Here's a 20 amp in-line GFCI.Swapping out the receptacle is cheaper. These are easier and
    portable...

    If we are talking 120v rather than 240v, it is a simple matter to replace a standard duplex
    outlet with a GFCI outlet.Or one of these.

  • Posted in thread: Oxygen Absorbing Caps on 07-24-2015 at 12:30 PM
    I suspect maybe some retailers, whether knowingly or not, sell the oxygen barrier caps as
    "oxygen absorbing".This is probably the answer I was looking for. I was at Keystone Homebrew in
    PA and asked a...

    Good deal! Put a few more things in my cart, used the IWANT10OFF code and it just about made
    for shipping free. Thanks!

    When he pushes out the 5 gallons of sanitizer with CO2, 100% of the sanitizer is displaced by
    the CO2 and he can do it at a low pressure so the amount of CO2 used is small. If he then fills
    the keg ha...

    This I understand, which is why I say if you're purging a totally empty keg, you're blowing out
    even more gas.IslandLizard's method is purging 5 gallons once with 100% effeciency.
    Incrementally purgin...

    It takes multiple purges to remove 80-90% of that 2.5 gallons of air.It takes about five full
    purges at 30psi to get to (imo) "close enough" to pure CO2. If you're purging an almost full
    keg, that's n...

    The bigger concern-- sanitation. There's a part of your process that's obviously compromised,
    I'd focus on identifying that so this type of thing doesn't become a regular occurrence.This. I
    regularly ...

  • Posted in thread: Wash IPA yeast?? on 07-22-2015 at 12:05 PM
    Only re-use that yeast if you haven't dry hopped yet. There can be sanitation issues with
    re-pitching yeast from dry-hopped beers.Any science to back that up? Curious to see that
    myself. My first thou...

It was great meeting you, mate- sorry it didn't work out to meet up at KClingers, though.



I haven't yet sampled any of your beers- I'll need to set aside some time for proper tasting notes.
