  • Got started in the UK brewing English Ales about 1991. My own recipe English Bitter is still the best beer I make. I do extract brewing and partial mash brews. Until 2009 I bottled everything I make. Now I have two kegerators and only bottle if I have to. I also give away more beer than I drink.

    Unfortunately I cannot answer your question. I had something similar happen to a summer wheat
    beer I had kegged. I kept the keg in question inside sitting on a central air vent with a
    thermometer on t...

    All of my swing tops have porcelain caps so using a sharpie works great and it cleans right
    off. The newer plastics caps would stain though.Bill

    Not all of the gaskets on this are o-ring type. Some are square cut that fit into machined
    grooves. I probably could have searched them out via McMaster Carr but food grade silicone
    worked perfectly i...

    Those parts look identical to the parts on my model 1891 5 gallon cornies. The gaskets are no
    longer available as far as I can tell. I contacted about 20 different suppliers with no luck. I
    ended up u...

    I appreciate the responses. I agree with the poster who said not to use dish soap as it does
    affect head retention. I have already disassembled the kegs after 24 hours of soaking. (12
    hours on each en...

    Once your friends find out that you have 4+ taps of homebrew, nice and cold, your brew won't
    stick around for too long...which gives you an excuse to brew more...what a vicious cycle
