I sit my kegs on a scale. 50 pounds of fluid is almost 5 gallons in the keg. That's how I know
when to stop transferring.This sounds easiest to me I suppose I'll buy scale.

I have the cereal killer which is not very easy to adjust the gap. Running through twice is the
best I can do. Never thought about needing to do it with light crystal or carapils. I guess now

Maybe this is a dumb question. If you're filling a closed keg through the liguid out, how do

on which I ju...

Maybe I should have phrased that I wouldn't have the need for a second dry hop. This beer,
after a single 5 day dry hop session, has more aroma than 95% of commercial beers I've had.
Sure, maybe it's ...

I'd like to get a better idea of how everyone is handling the second dry - hopping part of this
beer as I am sure not everyone is using the beer flavored method and I'm not ready to drop the
money on ...

I'll actually be aiming for 1.5 gallons and with my efficiency, it would actually give me
closer to 20% candi sugar. I think I'll try it out if I get the time in the next week or two.
