  • Posted in thread: Keg, no fridge, no problem? on 04-10-2009 at 04:13 AM

    It sure does look like mold. You sure have a lot of headspace, where oxygen would have been
    sitting and allowing it to happen. What I would do is dissolve one campden tablet per gallon

    During my typical 60 minute boil I boil off around 2 gallons, but I have a short and wide pot
    with a diameter of 18". A typical turkey fryer has a much smaller diameter, so on this first
    batch if I we...

    Typical boil off is 1 to 1.5 gallonsOk, does that take into consideration the 7lb's extract &
    1lb DME (which if I remember equals 3/4 gallon)?
