Posted in thread: 3 stage water filtering system on 05-22-2014 at 07:14 PM
I agree for the most part, but this is HIGHLY dependant on your water source: But not many
people actually need a filter, as usually our water supplies aren't loaded with sediment and
off-flavors. I w...

the time it takes to heat X-amount of liquid (and thus, the 'recommended amount' of power)
depends on the wattage of the heater, and the size of the brew. If you were brewing 1 ounce of
beer at a time...

I use a cheap DIY '2-stage' filter for brewing. The first stage is a 5-10 micron sediment
filter, and the second is a 0.5micron nominal carbon block filter for chlorine and chemicals.
true, carbon won...

I was hoping to have something where if it get's over 68 it kicks on the freezer, if it gets
under 66 it kicks on the heating element(haven't picked one out). Is this possible with this
Posted in thread: Does the volume of beer in my keg affect the pressure needed to carbonate? on 05-22-2014 at 06:20 PM
No, it doesn't.Think of it this way. The amount absorbed into the beer is a function of a)
surface area and b) pressure. Whether there is 1 gallon or 5 gallons in the keg, the surface
area is the same...
Posted in thread: Converting volumes of CO2 to PSI? on 05-22-2014 at 06:07 PM
And sorry, I don't mean to harp on this, but isn't pressure dependent on the volume of the
vessel? So wouldn't a 1 gallon container of beer have less internal pressure than a 5 gallon
container of bee...
Posted in thread: Beer lost flavor after a few days in the keg. on 05-22-2014 at 05:55 PM
CO2, and the amount used, certainly imparts its own flavor profile into a beer. too much and
the sting/bite of the gas can certainly overpower other flavors in the beer.its good that you
found the cau...
Posted in thread: Do you lose carb if you warm up keg? on 05-22-2014 at 05:37 PM
the head pressure will increase inside the keg, but so long as its sealed, that extra escaped
gas will reenter the beer when it gets chilled again, so, no lost gas (unless you have a leak;

It's an interesting conclusion. Don't know if it really matters for homebrewers, but I'm still
curious about what they did and how they measured.I wasnt able to find it either, but the only

so I'd assume from that they are very accurate. just keep in mind the difference between
accuracy and precisionthree probes reading similar readings should lead you to believe that
they are *precise*....
