Posted in thread: sight glass material on 05-18-2008 at 09:47 PM
I've added a sight glass to my boil keggle; my concern, however, is if the material I used will
melt under high temp. The sight glass I ordered from Northernbrewer back in the day for my HLT

I started getting a progressively worse random off-flavor in my brews over the past year. My
fermentation buckets always held a lingering odor no matter how hard I cleaned or how long I
soaked. I even...

Posted in thread: SS Braid for a hop stopper? on 04-24-2008 at 11:32 PM
From your link I see that it won't work well unless you use a hop bag (muslin or nylon). I was

or bubbles... just heat stress...about 1/2" - 5/8" radiating from the coupling. I guess I

You could also use Coca-Cola. pH=2.7.
Posted in thread: How much did you pay for welding your keggle? on 04-18-2008 at 12:46 AM
I've been doing the same thing but in the Huntsville, Alabama area and I've been quoted about
$80 for 4 stainless-steel welds. I actually thought this sounded a little low and have
hesitated on biting...

Actually Alabama is limited by alcohol content (6% and below) as well as volumetrically
(nothing above 16 fl oz...convenient since 500 ml=16.95 fl oz). And yes, there is a law
