Posted in thread: Perlick Flow Control- Worth It? on 02-05-2016 at 01:57 PM
Can you cheat and use one of these in lieu of a dedicated stout faucet? It's my understanding
that all a stout faucet has is a constrictor in it.No, at least not with the results you'd
want. The flow ...

If the foam is coming from a warm D coupler though, wouldn't it pour foamy regardlessly of
whether it is poured quickly or slowly?If you were going to spend up to 100$ to attempt to
resolve the proble...

Hi,I've been kegging for the past few years, but I'm planning to fill a few bottles off a keg
I'll be filling this weekend. I bought some Coopers Carbonation Drops that I'm going to use

Hate to dig up and old thread...I have one tap on my keezer that is consistently problematic...

Posted in thread: Any benefit to let yeast rise above it's upper temperature limit? on 01-17-2016 at 02:12 AM
Only because the 1968 has a fairly low attenuation. I assume it may still be doing a little

I'll just lea...

the brew bucket; do you pull a small sample glass prior to kegging, or how do you check it? I
Posted in thread: Questions on primary only brewing on 01-11-2016 at 01:16 AM
Hi,I brew ales, and I've always used a secondary. A typical beer may spend two weeks in the
primary, and two more in the secondary before kegging. I cold crash and add gelatin finings
during the last ...
Posted in thread: Remix a cold-crashed yeast starter on a stir plate? on 01-07-2016 at 01:53 AM
Hi,I cold-crash my yeast starters for a day or two, decant as much of the wort as I can, then
swirl and shake the flask to get a good slurry for pitching.Right now I have a Wyeast 1968
starter in the ...
