    Any kind of leak on the inlet side could pull air into the system if the pressure is below
    atmospheric. This might not show up as a liquid leak with the pull off, as the pressure
    difference is in the ...

  • Posted in thread: My New Pin Cask - A Question on 07-22-2015 at 06:41 PM
    Totally cool! How do you maintain serving pressure once you start drawing off the natural co2?
    Never was clear on that. Is it fed sugar so some degree of fermentation is maintained? Cellar
    temp at all...

    Yup, but false economy! You can swap a whole 20# tank for a few bucks more.Sure, but you do
    then have portable serving option for your keg (with a picnic tap), and spare CO2 source when
    you need to go...

  • Posted in thread: SUPER STRONG Grain smell flavor good or bad in beer? How on 07-22-2015 at 06:26 PM
    None of the beers were bad. Its just another aspect of beer to appreciate. The styles were Old
    English Ale and Russian Imperial Stout on Cask.This is probably also key. Both styles have a
    lot of malt ...

    Saran wrap under the lid (with a small hole to the airlock) might be an option to keep oxygen

    Two weeks ago:Packing to move house on Thursday, trying to buy a car (moving out to where I
    need my own car to commute), trying to rest my collarbone that was screwed back together in
    surgery last Tue...

  • Posted in thread: What to brew while warm? on 07-11-2015 at 01:52 PM
    Belle Saison and 3711 are the easiest to use and not very temp sensitive. They both will just
    go to work and take the gravity down very low. I think they will ferment the spoon if you stir
    too long. T...

  • Posted in thread: Thoughts on preventing oxidation during keg transport without CO2 tank. on 07-09-2015 at 03:22 PM
    That's actually a pretty solid solution...the yeast would take care of any O2 that got into
    solution on the car ride, wouldn't they? The only real downside would be the added wait time,
    but that's not...

    Maybe look into induction burners if your going small.Yeah, cheaper 1800W models certainly have
    enough power to boil 10 qts, and usually have a 20F temperature control step, which would be
    fine for st...
