    So, I was just handed a brewing death blow. Turns out that I have chronic liver disease and
    can't drink alcohol any longer. So I am probably going to sell off all of my brewing equipment
    and transitio...

    Just don't blow anyone up. I can tell you from experience that carbonated yogurt is
    interesting. Though General Mills didn't seem to see much success from their Fizzix Gogurts.

    Doug,I agree with you on the plastic threads. Seems safer should something go wrong.I guess I
    hadn't thought of the PRV as anything other than a safety feature because these were originally
    built for ...

    Monin has some good pumps for their syrups, I'd consider getting some of those and reusing the
    glass bottles.I've purchased bottles and pumps from Prairie Moon, but it's kind of ridiculous
    getting eno...

  • Posted in thread: Soda Kegging Question - Filter/Strain out Zest, etc? on 10-26-2015 at 10:12 PM
    I usually filter out heavy sediment with a sieve, and anything with a fine sediment I then run
    through a clean muslin bag or coffee filter. It can be tedious, but beats a clogged dip tube.I
    have done ...
