    Thanks AJ. That's the conclusion I came to. Am looking for SS containers that I can use. Just
    hadn't thought through.

    Been out of town and just getting back to this brew. I'm trying to figure out how to do a small
    test mash with my equipment. My mash tun is a keggle which takes at least several lbs of grain
    to even g...

    but the total amount of grain mashed should be small i.e. a pound or less.Do you think the .69
    gals of underlet volume on my mash tun will be a problem with the test mash?

    Thanks AJ. Got the misread. Were you estimating based on Rahr Pale Ale because that is the base
    malt I usually use and would prefer to use. Can you suggest the parameters for a test mash
    please. Just ...

    Not sure how the top rubberized part with the handles is attached. I was testing lifting a full
    really old Firestone Pepsi keg with a blue rubber top and it turns out the only thing attaching
    the rubb...

    Anyone seen a carrier for a ball lock keg similar to the strap haulers available for carboys? I
    just put in a pulley system to raise my kegs in and out of my keezer and am looking for a way
    to support...

    How about distilled water? I don't have a source for RO water where I live. I believe ro water
    has a ph of 5 - 6 and distilled water 7.0 so how much acid would you suggest. Also, I currently
    do not ha...

    AJ, I hope you're still monitoring this thread. I am finally ready to brew an American Amber
    Ale (10B), OG 60, SRM 13, IBU 5. My grain bill will be 10lb 3oz Breiss 2-row (I will use the
    Briess this ti...

    On my ball lock kegs, I will occasionally get a co2 leak at the gray qd where the co2 leaks out
    the bottom of the qd around the post. Of course, it can suck my 20 lb tank dry overnight or
    faster. Some...

  • Posted in thread: 1/4" FFL to 3/16" Barb on 06-30-2016 at 05:06 PM
    Thanks sierrabrewer. That certainly explains it. The only consideration to using a 3/16" barb
    instead of a 1/4" barb for liquid line connections is that the 3/16" barb has a smaller, about
    5.3/32" whe...
