    And it shouldn't effect your FG the yeast are going to eat what they eat. You're only
    controlling how fast they eat it. Lower temps = slower

    It's doing what it's supposed to be doing. You're fine. The cooler temps are keeping the
    fermentation from running wild. You will experience slightly longer fermentation than at room
    temp with no cont...

    I know a LOT of brewers who are female, and who own breweries, or who are partially owned by
    females. I never once heard one of them speak of such misogyny. Wait????hold on a sec.....Its
    legal to par...

  • Posted in thread: Kegging question regarding O2/co2, regulator PSI on 07-14-2015 at 01:13 AM
    You want to leave the gas on and shutoff open. Here is a chart for volume of co2 per Psi and
    temp. You will need a higher PSI setting at room temp than you would if leg was cold. 290008

  • Posted in thread: Keg issue too long of lines? on 07-13-2015 at 12:28 AM
    Check that the seal under the liquid out post is lubed and intact as a bad seal could cause co2
    from the headspace to escape into the line when serving causing foaming issues. Just another
    shot at a s...

    I just used wire caps and electric tape.

  • Posted in thread: Emergency: Is gas dip tube needed to store beer in corny? on 07-06-2015 at 09:32 PM
    If it doesn't seal with thread tape, you could try boring the hole out to a larger diameter to
    accommodate the wider dip tube. Just another option.

    The small plastic one has tightened up and so I was going to open it tonight to see how carbed
    it is.This will save me from having to open a 12 oz bottle.For 1 cup of sugar for 1 gallon I am
    fearing b...

    If you are keeping them cold it will not matter. If you are storing them warm you shouldn't
    have the plastic one in the fridge. Otherwise it won't be representative to what your bottling.

  • Posted in thread: Hard Root Beer recipe on 07-03-2015 at 04:44 PM
    You just want it to rest in the bottles until it reaches the carb level you want then
    pasteurize it to stop it from over carbing. Then you can let it condition as long as you wish
    it too. I kegged min...
