  • Posted in thread: PBW question on 08-02-2014 at 05:05 PM
    Pbw will lose some effectiveness pretty quickly (minutes?) Some is stable for a long time. I
    would just try to use less. I use about a half gallon to a gallon for most cleanup, unless
    something is rea...

    Sour is usually infected. I'd dump it.

  • Posted in thread: Infections that aren't visible? on 08-01-2014 at 02:47 PM
    Sure there are infections that will not impart any visual changes from a normal fermentation.
    The yeast we use was once wild, just like the stuff we don't want (although many millions of
    generations h...

  • Posted in thread: Non-frost free Freezer for Temp Control? on 07-31-2014 at 09:53 PM
    Being as you are not running the freezer at below freezing temps, it should not be a problem.
    In fact the way most temp control units work, the frost free function is basically useless.

  • Posted in thread: Cleaning Keg lines after strong flavors on 07-31-2014 at 09:50 PM
    My suggestion is to replace the line. At some point trying to clean the lines is going to cost
    more than installing a new line. Unless you have something like Brewmaster II glass lines, very
    strong fl...

    Not really related to the question you asked, but I wanted to make sure you don't plan to use
    the burner inside. Those style of burners are not meant to be used inside, they do not combust
    as fully as...

  • Posted in thread: Why is my pump losing prime? on 07-30-2014 at 10:24 PM
    My best guess is too much inlet restriction. Try getting rid of the elbow on the inlet and
    instead using a sweeping curve with your hose on the pump inlet.

  • Posted in thread: How to Clean a Jockey Box????? on 07-30-2014 at 07:45 PM
    I would treat it just like any beer line. Clean it with pbw and then starsan. Drain out what
    you can and blow out a bit more to get most of the water. An air compressor should be OK, just
    don't use oi...

  • Posted in thread: Prechiller effectiveness on 07-29-2014 at 05:33 PM
    During the early spring I recirculate ice water after knocking down the temp with tap water. I
    also only bother when I have tons of free ice piled up in the yard. It does speed up chilling a

  • Posted in thread: Aging in used whiskey barrels on 07-29-2014 at 05:23 PM
    You should be able to use the barrels until they wear out (leak). If you get an infection the
    barrel is pretty hard to sanatize though. Also you will get less flavor as time goes on. The
    first one or ...

Don't take any more faith in anything I say than you would anyone else on the internet. If you listen to what I say, then hurt your self or break something it is your own fault, I am just expressing my opinion or experience. THINK for your self!!
