    There are thousands of home brewers using plastic. If there was some sort of inherent problem
    with plastic it would have shown up years ago.

    Since you know it's not the gas line or beer line it can only be a recurring beer dip tube clog
    or a gas leak. By any chance is there a dry hop bag down at the bottom of the keg? Any free
    floating lea...

    Frustrating! I am assuming that you are using corny keg and you are certain that the gas is
    getting in the keg. If the gas is getting in then you have to have a leak. One thing to look at
    is the post ...

    What do you mean by thisRemember that you will need a gas fitting for the tire valveWhen you
    use a tire valve for carbonation the only way to get the gas into the bottle is to use the same
    type of fit...

    I have made carbonator valves out of metal tire valves - drill the appropriate size hole in the
    soda top and seal it with silicone. Works great. Fill the bottle, squeeze out the air, put the
    cap on an...

    I'd go with 10' lines then work backwards. Let the beer tell you when it's right. Besides it
    always easier to shorten a line than lengthen it. Cheers

    I've found that it is OK to gelatin fine even after carbonation.

    I went to the Dow Corning site and they list 5 AFE- xxxx products for controlling foam during
    fermentation. But 1410 is not one of them. They list 0010, 0100, 1510, 1520, 1920. Is there any

    Where do you get AFE1410? Price?

  • Posted in thread: Low mash temps & low FG on 12-16-2012 at 01:31 AM
    Sometimes I think that we'd be better off not relying so much on the accuracy of our
    instruments but making sure that they are reasonably precise. If I mash at say 154 as shown on
    my thermometer and t...
