Posted in thread: Traded up a from Corny, now my beer is flat? on 05-07-2014 at 11:39 AM
I've fixed it.The answer came to me last night, when comparing how I deal with the new keg
against the old corny. After force carbing, the corny needs the gas line removing and the
excess pressure rel...

Gas to the serving line is fairly common. The benefits are minimal, but shouldn't contribute to
overcarbed beer any more than gas to the gas post would, it might get there a few seconds
earlier is all...

I assume you mean 3/8th which would mean your lines are good. Excessive foam is caused by the
co2 coming out of the beer making it go flat. But I would also try putting the gas line to the
gas post, I...

Hey, thanks for the input.The lines are 5/8 and are over 10ft to the font.I doubt the serving
pressure is a factor in the lack of carbonation as I always start with zero pressure and
gradually turn th...

Hi,I've been using a corny keg for a year or so and have managed some good, consistent results
using the sort of chart that is often mentioned on here: now got a bigger keg, with an A-type
fitting - ...
Posted in thread: Warming bottles during bottle condition on 05-02-2014 at 04:30 PM
I guess a water bath would be a pretty effective way of holding a given temp, but at quite a
cost? I'd say that holding for about a week will give good results. For that length of time, a
warm room is...
Posted in thread: Stirplate vs Airstone aeration on growth? on 12-18-2013 at 02:05 PM
I have just had the same problem. I normally use a one inch crosshatch style stir bar. Thick
yeast did stop it a couple of days ago. I dropped in a 2 inch stir bar. The 2 inch worked. I

What is the problem with your stir plate? Perhaps we can help.Yeah, good point.The plate works
ok with small volumes. For a 1-2L starter it is no trouble, but I'm stepping them up in 3
stages to make ...

Hi, My stir plate has become too much of a pita to be used much more. I'd like to switch to
using constant aeration via a stainless airstone. I figure that I'll still have the agitation
that is enjoye...
Posted in thread: Optimum temp to propagate a lager starter? on 11-20-2013 at 04:36 PM
It's not going to be used for 5-6 days. I'm stepping it up 3 times to get to the cell count
needed for the lager I'm brewing, this is just the first stage.Seems like a difficult balance
to judge?Do I ...
