Put me down for 2 sacks of pilsner and 1 sack of pale malt. Thanks.

If you have a highly carbed beer, and want to prevent excessive foaming, while keeping the carb
level constant, use long beer lines 8-10'.

You would be wise to put some keg lube on the standard type O ring. I've found they tend to
leak otherwise. I believe some homebrew supply stores carry the flat O rings. Try Williams

The fuller the keg, the fewer the beers you'll be able to serve without a source of co2 pushing
the beer. If its full, you'll get only 2-3 pints, if it's 1/2 full, you could serve over a

Revvy, your response has to become a sticky. How many times has this question come up?

or so for...

It always surprises me when people control their freezers using beer temp instead of freezer
air temp. Water, which is what mostly makes up beer, has one of the highest heat capacities of

Cut out 2 9" circles, put them in the bottom of the freezer. If they don't overlap, you have
yourself a potential 2-keg keezer.

Thats the pressure in the tank pushing against the primary regulator. The number is nearly
meaningless, as it has no bearing on the amount of co2 in the tank. Many of those who keg
