    We don't ever filter our beer, nor use anything but kettle finings. Gravity, time and
    temperature are all we need!Thanks and hope to see you here again soon. That was a blast!

    Chill, rack to kegs brite beer, force carbonate in the kegs one at a time, 40# CO2 for ~ 16.5
    minutes per 1/2 bbl. Easy peasy. Been doing it for a year now.

    I use 3/4 in my brewery. I had to buy a 50 or 100' roll, can't recall, I think 50'. How much do
