The ONLY side effect to lines longer than the calculators give you is a (very) slightly slower
pour. The terms "line balancing" and "ideal length" are somewhat misleading. You need "balance"

I thought if you put super long lines on your beer, you'd get unbalanced and have still pours?
I've been trying to follow equations online about getting the right length for the PSI you're

Once you've gotten the tubing on, how do you get the stuff off? I change out my lines to make
sure I've got the right length for the beer I'm serving. Getting those things off requires a

I just got all the equipment to begin kegging. I've got the fridge, lines, dual manifold, all

I've got my brewing equipment stored in a couple different places throughout the house. I've

I just finished aging this recipe from Northern Brewer: didn't buy the kit, just most of the

Moisture's going to rise to the highest point in your shed. Assuming you have a pitched roof
and not a flat one, that's going to be the ridge line on your roof. Your best bet to get the
hot air and mo...
Posted in thread: Why do I need to add so much less DME? on 05-11-2012 at 06:41 PM
Wait, I'm confused. How can adding DME decrease my wort volume? If I'm adding a voluminous
substance to something, wouldn't the volume increase?

With the partial mash, I'll still be extracting some fermentables, correct? Otherwise, I
wouldn't have a post mash gravity reading of 1015, would I?My evaporative loss is about .75
gallons/hour, so I'...

I've been brewing for a few months, and started doing partial mash full volume boils. The last
two batches I've done would have had me way overshoot my OG if I had followed the recipe as
