The starter is fermenting, I guess we'll see what happens. :)

This may be a foolish question, but will cider yeast groove on DME? I made a starter for a
cider I plan to make this weekend and without thinking about it I just kind went into autopilot
and did my st...

So when you say I need to push the needle in the direction that's correct, does that mean
bending it? Or is that just sliding the zero point of the needle somewhere inside the gauge?

I just ordered a new 3 body secondary regulator so I could move my CO2 tank outside of my
kegerator and open up more space for more kegs. :)However, they arrived yesterday and none of
the three 0-60ps...

It's not the first time I've had a starter ferment over (is there a better term?) but this is

pleased with ...

Hi alowell, that heating tape, is that food safe? You mention that it could be used to maintain
mash temps, but I use a cooler for my mashes so wrapping that on the outside of of my mash tun

Anywhere from twice or three times the chart pressure for 24 hours will shave a few days off.
Don't shake it though.Why do you say not to shake it? If I've already purged the headspace of
the keg of ...

Is there any benefit to shaking the keg at chart pressure (e.g. 12 psi in the example in the
OP)? Will that decrease the carbonation time without having to overpressure the keg?

Yeah, that's kinda what my research showed as well, northernlad. I think that I might go with
the 60 Qt Winco 3003 Al pot. At only $57, it's not a huge investment if it turns out to not be
what I need...
