Posted in thread: Is it time to toss the old soda cornys for new SS cornys??? on 12-06-2013 at 06:52 PM
I bought a few new ones. They work fine, but I don't see them lasting as long as the older
cornies will. They're just not as well built. Mine have the welded strap handle on top. I just
know those suc...

I think as long as it's not prolonged exposure you are OK. I store mine in Lowes food grade
buckets for months at a time. I've never had a problem, but they are thicker plastic. I used to
use milk jug...
Posted in thread: How long are co2 tanks supposed to last? on 12-04-2013 at 01:57 PM
I kept hearing about how much easier kegging is and all that, but so far it's been a bigger
PITA than bottling.With bottling, just put the beer in the bottles and let them sit for two

I get at least 5-7 kegs out of a 5#, that includes force carbing them. You definitely have a
leak. If you are able to isolate parts of your system finding the leak souldn't be too hard. If

I'm drinking a galaxy pale ale right now. I usually do this recipe with Amarillo, but I
couldn't get any. Not nearly as good, but not too bad either. it's definitely a milder hop.
I'll probably bump i...

Posted in thread: Trying to get into kegging. on 12-03-2013 at 12:43 AM
1 can I do a 3 gallon batch in a 5 gallon keg or will I have issues with that? No problem with
this. I do it all the time. In fact I'd say get 5-gallon kegs. They are usually cheaper than
the smaller ...

I've made a yeast starter. It didn't taste very good.

I have a process question. I mis-timed this batch of beer. I want to follow the fermentation
schedule as closely as possible, but I will be out of town on day 5 of my fermentation. Which
option is bet...
