  • Posted in thread: bought a keg, wife says no to co2 tank on 07-31-2015 at 12:20 AM
    ...My old tank was damaged and It was too obvious to trade out...Did you try? As a few have
    said the guy swapping it out may not care.

  • Posted in thread: What would happen if you boiled beer? on 07-30-2015 at 10:38 PM
    I'm no chemist, but I grazed the wikipedia page, and I don't see how that applies to the point
    I am making.I might have formulated myself a bit badly, I agree that the same is true at any
    temperature ...

    I started with an upgrade of my system, and them subsequently abandoned it, and bought the
    infamous grainfather.I've brewed for three years, and the first brew on the weekend, couldn't
    have been easie...

    Not an engineer. But I do work in the fastener industry. It is a complex world.You can
    calculate rough strength for yourself if you can do basic math and some geometry. Just figure
    out the area of the...

    if you weren't already aware, judging is 7November. Beers required for cataloging the week
    before, normally the friday in past years.I know I have some time... but the game plan really
    need to include...

  • Posted in thread: What would happen if you boiled beer? on 07-30-2015 at 04:11 AM
    Covered boil, since we're passed the point where we're concerned with DMS? I also wonder how
    much alcohol would boil off.you should have minimal O2 in the beer by end of fermentation
    right. Additional...

  • Posted in thread: Bolt strength on 07-30-2015 at 02:54 AM
    4,000 kg is 1,800 lbs. by my rough estimation. That bolt is not a weakness in my scheme, and
    your answer gets me to that point in a hurry. My situation works, as this strength crushes
    anything I inten...

    11/16 is not a common bolt size. In fact it pretty much doesn't exist. Bolts are measured by
    the diameter of the outside of the threads and not the head of the bolt. Sounds like you
    probably have a 7/...

  • Posted in thread: Bolt strength on 07-30-2015 at 01:40 AM
    It really depends on how you are mounting them, e.g. are the bolts being stretched lengthways
    or sliced in half by the metal it is holding together (trying not to be technical :))I would
    say that more...

  • Posted in thread: I went "pro" - What it actually takes to do so on 07-28-2015 at 11:59 PM
    We put these in there too... (Not sure how I don't have a pic of them in there).That's a bit
    bigger :D Nice work!For now we just went with two 15 bbl fermenters that we can double as
    brites as well.Wh...
