Posted in thread: Cloudy beer after kegging on 07-02-2015 at 06:20 PM
My opinion on keg clearing is this. Since the keg draws from the bottom when it pulls beer, you
very well could have perfectly clear beer at the top of the keg. It's just my assumption as
I've never p...

IT's really a non issue, but as others have said, I'd switch the layout you have there, put the
fermentor on top of the bucket and have the star san container sit on the floor. This will
prevent any s...

stretch, but I've nev...
