    Hi folks, It was a seal thing; I changed out all the seals, pressure held nicely. I think I'm
    gold.Gonna rack my stout in there tomorrow, here's hoping there are no more surprises.

  • Posted in thread: kegging noob; leak question on 12-28-2013 at 06:58 AM
    What is an acceptable leak rate? Is there one? Or should a keg hold pressure indefinitely?I've
    got a used keg which seems to be losing pressure, ever so slightly. I've lost 2 psi in about 6
    hours. I'v...

    The line should still fit. Use some boiling water to make the line bigger, and smoosh it on
    there. Use a clamp on both connections.Awesome, that did it. Thanks!

    Morning folks,I'm putting together my equipment for kegging, and I ran into a snag. I have a
    corny keg, and the gas line connector has a OD of 1/4". My regulator, however, has OD 3/8"
    product connecto...

  • Posted in thread: Possible blow off with blow off tube? on 11-05-2013 at 03:43 AM
    Yep, it's the NB imperial stout. The blow off tube is submerged in what was star san solution
    in a gallon jug... which now looks like a half gallon of diarrhea!Leaving town on Friday, so
    the plan was ...

    This wouldn't happen to be the imp stout from northern brewer, would it? That's a
    very...energetic kit. :D I've had the same problem with it, had to put the blow off reservoir
    in a pan to catch the dr...

  • Posted in thread: Bucket not sealed on 01-29-2013 at 08:24 PM
    I don't even use a lid. I just place the bucket in front of the furnace intake so the wonderful
    smell of fermentation permeated the entire house!(I'm joking, of course. You're fine.)You joke,
    but I've...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast pitch quantity and fermentation time on 01-25-2013 at 05:23 PM
    The beer: Danstar Windsor Ale x2~66 degrees Didn't take a reading ( I know, I know, but with
    the extract kits I usually don't ).My question was more generic; I'm not really worried about
    this batch,...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast pitch quantity and fermentation time on 01-25-2013 at 05:07 PM
    Does the amount of yeast you pitch modify the speed at which a batch ferments?I ask because I
    used two packets of yeast on my latest 5 gallon on Wednesday. Had wild fermentation yesterday (
    had blowou...

  • Posted in thread: A better way to oxygenate wort on 11-22-2012 at 06:00 PM
    I haven't brewed all that much, but I have never had a problem with the "Shake the hell out of
    it" method. Plastic bucket or glass carboy. Extract or grain. Thick or thin wort. Maybe I'm
    missing somet...
