    I would like to make some more beer!

    Also, when you freeze, you're finding that the various components of the beer are freezing at
    different temperatures and separating. Ice Beers rely on this principal for their very

    Regarding probe length - I have a fixed depth thermowell that runs the full height of the
    carboy, and the temperature probe fits relatively tightly inside but allows me to move it up or
    down as I see ...

    Rather than threading the keg, look into soldering on a fitting. Bobby does it all the time

    it into a fe...

    see it being something on the line itself - the connection to the keg, the flow meter, the
    shank... Hell, ...

    I have 3 Perlick 575SS faucets (the 'fancy' ones with the creamer feature).On one specific
    faucet, I get foam for the first second or two, every pour. This isn't the "warm beer" foam you
    sometimes get...

    To close the loop on my FAR less complex issue - going to a quality 2+ amp charger with a
    quality low resistance cable, I haven't had any issues. Thanks all.If anyone wants links to the
    specific produ...
