Posted in thread: taking the gas off the brew? on 10-15-2009 at 04:15 AM
If you have another spare cornie why not gas that up to say 80PSI and use that to pump the beer
out of the cornie with beer in. :) It's certainly a lot lighter than a C02 bottle! Sorry, just

Or to put it another way, using anything other than the tiny C02 sparklet bulbs with no way of
measuring how much is going in is stupid and potentially life threatening!

Fair enough, I wasn't aware of such a thing but if that's the case then yes, I wouldn't

You can use the small C02 cartridges like the ones for a BB gun, just make sure you dont use
the kind that says not for human consumption, or something similar. I used to use 2 of those to
form a tigh...
Posted in thread: Possible Repeat Carbonation Issue on 09-07-2009 at 03:10 AM
I personally think 3+ weeks is too long and too much yeast is dropping out of suspension and

Posted in thread: More Corny keg ?'s from a newbie on 09-03-2009 at 04:16 AM
I know I'm going to get shot down for not using keg lube but I run 12 kegs and have never yet
had to replace any seals. Once the keg is filled, hit it with 30PSI and purge a couple of times
Posted in thread: More Corny keg ?'s from a newbie on 09-03-2009 at 03:00 AM
Against all the advice here I never use keg lube and only strip the cornie once every 5 or 6
brews. I clean the keg with regular washing up liquid and water and sanitise with a videne

It could also be the line. 3/16th's offers great resistance and less foam over 3/8th's line.
It's a matter of balancing pressure and resistance over a given length and diameter of line
aswell as tempe...
