Posted in thread: Controlling or moving Star San foam on 12-24-2014 at 03:35 PM
You want to look at Saniclean (low foaming, similar to Star San). I use this in my keg washer
to sanitize kegs and use Star San for everything else. It still foams a bit but is manageable.
Posted in thread: Refractometer on 12-18-2014 at 06:48 PM
Interesting discussion. I have a refractometer and like the idea of it, but I've gone back to
using a hydrometer. Why? While my spot checking was close enough, I found that the longer I let
it sit at ...
Posted in thread: Too Many Check Valves Causing Issues? on 12-17-2014 at 06:43 PM
I have a check valve at the regulator and at each outlet of my co2 distributor. I experimented
with two different kinds of check valves for use at the disconnect and no longer use them. I
found that a...
Posted in thread: Bubbles in liquid out line from keg on 12-17-2014 at 05:34 PM
I have a very small bubble in my liquid lines. No leaks and they haven't been any kind of

pours. You mig...

I've read alot about the 10' Lines, but I dont understand the concept of it, do you just curl
them around your kegs? I like the idea of tubing around the lines... The one I'm currently
eyeing up is th...

I have a three tap Beer Meister. It's fantastic. I get no foam on my pours @ 10 psi. I also
like that a human being answers the phone when you call.
Posted in thread: Mill gap Setting on 12-12-2014 at 03:36 PM
You'll likely get a nice crush with the factory gap (.045"). Fred at Monster recommended .040"
to me when I got mine, which I set mine to and I consistently get 78% efficiency with a double

White Labs says that you should expect a 10% drop in viability if a vial is frozen. I'd imagine
a frozen starter would be similar.
Posted in thread: WLP566 Saison II - Should it be sour/tart? on 12-02-2014 at 02:54 PM
I'd agree. I like WLP565 but have avoided it due to it's reputation for being fussy. I was
happier with the results from Wyeast 3711 over WLP566 in my rye saison. Since my friends keep
asking for it, ...
