Posted in thread: Sight glass for Coors keg on 12-11-2010 at 01:29 AM
Anybody have a sight glass for the bulged out coors kegs? I was thinking that a standard one
with a longer coupler between the bulkhead and elbow would work. I only have coors kegs and it
took me long...

I know someone did a thread on disasembling and cleaning ball lock connectors but I can't seem

Posted in thread: Where to put temp control probe? on 01-17-2010 at 12:24 AM
I have a Ranco temp controller and I've just been taping it to the side of the fermentation
vessel so that it tries to keep the beer at exactly the temp I'm looking for. My concern is

Posted in thread: Anyone use hot tap water for brewing? on 12-18-2009 at 10:02 PM
I use hot water in all my brews and haven't had a problem yet. However I do maintain my water

How do you get it out? Or do you just leave it in the keg till you drink it all? I've been

Posted in thread: How long can you leave beer in a primary? on 11-17-2009 at 06:36 PM
I leave mine in the primary as long as I want. I've had some sit for months. I find that those
beers are better than the ones left for a short time. They get more time to clear and the yeast

If I'm not mistaken, oxidation is not a concern with a starter as you're not really trying to
make finished beer, but make as many yeast cells as possible. You actually want as much oxygen

Posted in thread: natural carbonation in the keg on 09-11-2009 at 01:29 PM
I have had good luck with natural carbing, but I prefer force carbing. You get less sediment

beer sits at se...
