I usually keep it on 30 for 24-48 hours and then bleed the keg down to serving pressure. It's
not fully carbed after the first few days but it's definitely drinkable and after 3-4 days it's
Posted in thread: NYC 2010 Water Report on 05-16-2014 at 03:06 PM
I usually add some gypsum or calcium chloride, total of 6 grams for about 10 gallons of brew

I bought a mini fridge and put my bucket in there. I use a stc-1000 and disconnected the

I own this one: it last weekend, worked great (I was getting it to pitching temp in 1 pass)
