3/16 beer line from farmhouse brewing supply - it came in and I dutifully cut it to length and
Posted in thread: How do you pressure check a corny keg? on 02-11-2015 at 12:07 AM
I have 10 kegs and I would like to pressure check them as one or more of them may have a leak.
They are all ball lock corny kegs of various origins (firestone, spartan, etc). I was thinking

I agree with Wilserbrewer. I strain my wort going into the fermenter, which only catches most
of the hops, but all of the break material and some of the hops make it into the fermenter and

Posted in thread: Multiple temperatures during fermentation - on purpose on 07-16-2014 at 05:26 PM
I recently went to a local nano - Enegren brewing in Moorpark, CA. I sampled several of their
