Posted in thread: Kegging Pressure - Naturally Carb on 07-27-2012 at 08:12 PM
That keg's going to have to be cold for the C02 produced by fermentation carbonation to

Check your tap. I had a moldy cobra tap I didn't know about and I got a horrible off flavor

Posted in thread: Kombucha in stainless corny keg? on 04-26-2012 at 04:37 PM

If you like pizza and making it at home, buy a mixer. I bought mine when I was a year out of
