    diameter is 770mm and I'm planning on fitting 1 x 406mm length (16") and 1 x 356mm length

    Daksin, you are right. When I originally posted I had caught it early, but last night I went to

    Thanks for your input everyone. I've started looking through that thread and it helps to see
    such variety.I'll taste mine tonight and, if it is ok, I'll bottle and keg it. If it tastes

    Just feel it's worth commenting on the reponse from Sanch, just in case some noobie stumbles
    across this post..."if you release the pressure it will not carbonate"This is a misconception.A

    You need to purge the head space if air, then let CO2 build up.Any opinions on sneaking a
