Posted in thread: How do you keep track of how much is left in your keg? on 05-14-2013 at 02:06 PM
It's easy to tell by the level of condensation on the keg. Doesn't work well as an indicator in
a chest freezer, but works great in a fridge. Just leave the door open for a couple of minutes.

Looks like a port for a dial thermometer. Interesting that the picture is showing a brass ball
Posted in thread: Belgain yeast=short bubbling in airlock? on 05-08-2013 at 02:30 PM

Calling it a black or dark ipa is silly and also creates confusion especially amongst the
commercial guys I've noticed. I am more and more convinced that they are different styles. CDAs
