  • Posted in thread: Boil problems - Propane pressure? on 01-19-2015 at 02:45 AM
    There is also the problem of heat transfer through the wall/bottom; as the tank empties very
    little liquid propane is in contact with the wall. Typically the bottle is sitting on the
    ground or concret...

  • Posted in thread: Liquid CO2 vs Gas CO2 force carbonating Corny Keg on 01-05-2015 at 06:31 PM
    Accurately carbonating with liquid CO2 is much more difficult than using gas. With liquid CO2,
    you don't have a simple way to control the pressure and small changes in volume can cause large
    changes i...

    I'd just let it sit and check the gravity Wed. and again Saturday. If all three readings are
    the same, you're good to go. Stirring it up at this point will just make it take longer to

  • Posted in thread: Mash tun size on 12-22-2014 at 08:32 PM
    I've got a 40 qt Cube and it is more than twice the size of the largest mash I've ever made.
    That was for a very high gravity (~1.140) barley wine.

    I agree with yooper, but try calling your water company first. They have to test their water
    rather frequently and may be willing to send you a copy of the results.I was raised in Crete
    and our water ...

  • Posted in thread: How often do you drink? on 12-19-2014 at 02:52 AM
    3-4 times a week, mostly on the weekend though. Generally, 1-3 drinks on any given night. Last
    Monday, we sampled a sparkling pink muscato; drank the whole bottle.

    About a week ago I noticed the house was getting a bit chilly. Checking the furnace, I
    discovered that it wasn't working. It's 26 years old and had failed about 3 years ago. This
    time it sounded like ...

  • Posted in thread: Another dead keggerator on 12-19-2014 at 02:34 AM
    My keggerator died, which isn't all that big a deal, I got ten years out of it. The nnoying
    part is I can't find a replacement freezer that is square (23 3/4" by 23 3/4"). Seems like all
    of the new fr...

  • Posted in thread: Talk me off the kegging ledge... on 12-19-2014 at 02:26 AM
    I had a leak in the body of a regulator, but that doesn't sound like your problem. Does it
    happen regardless of which keg is nearly done? If it's just one keg, the first thing I'd do is
    replace all of...

Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!" "I would like to die on Mars, just not on impact." Elon Musk

George Carlin was a great comedian, but a horrible statistician. What he should have said was:
"Just think of how stupid the MEDIAN person is..."
