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

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

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.

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

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
