    I don't think the PRV on a keg is a safety relief valve. Have you ever taken one apart? The
    poppet has about a 3/16" diameter, and thus an area of about 0.028 sq. in. I measured the pull
    force require...

    Well I didn't take pics since it's just a keg without a PRV. It's not all that old based on the
    condition of the spring and O ring. I guess it fermented past the PSI tolerance of the PRV. I
    didn't kno...

    I think it was a fairly new PRV, can't recall exactly. I figured that CO2 would preserve it
    without need for refrigeration. Doh!

    I came home last night and walked into the room where I have my kegerator. 4 kegs are inside
    and one was outside bc of space. It was pear/apple juice I had kegged to save fridge space. I
    purged it wel...

    I had a johnson analog for 3 years and it finally pooped out on me. I had that thermocouple in
    water for less fluctuation in my keezer. The Ranco one is smaller and I haven't seen anything
    about putti...

    I did a brown ale and I soaked the chips in makers mark then just tossed it in the keg. It
    lasted about 8 months, as long as the beer did. It got better and better on the way down too.

    Like I said I only have one keg. I already have a BK and that lid is long gone

  • Posted in thread: New fermenter design on 09-19-2015 at 05:13 PM
    I want to use the cutout from the keg lid to reuse it as a fermentor lid. There have been
    countless designs out there, but none that I've come across that I really want. I want yo use
    toggle clamps we...

    I have most of the parts I need for my eBIAB control panel. I have three holes to drill for the
    outlets(240V power, pump, element) at 2 3/8", 1 1/2" and 1 3/8". I also have several 22mm holes
