Posted in thread: Swapping in/out post on the keg on 03-30-2013 at 04:44 PM
Hey fellas. I've got a corny whose black rubber top has completely fallen off. Thus, I am left
with a bare metal top with no indication of which hole was originally the IN and which was the
OUT (both ...

How recently did you pitch the yeast? Can you identify it as krausen? Infection perhaps? Got a
pic by chance?

By 2 quarters, do you mean 2 quarts? I typically calculate how much runoff I expect from my
mash, then take the remainder of my desired starting volume and divide by 2 for my two separate

I usually throw a clean towel or something over the brew kettle after I've cooled to ~170.

Typically when I keg a beer I will hit it with 30psi to seat the lid and then let the keg sit
at room temp for a couple months before throwing it in my fridge and carbing it. I've noticed
with some of...
Posted in thread: How likely is an infection to occur at high krausen? on 05-23-2011 at 08:36 PM
Last night I stumbled in to my brew room after waking up in the middle of the night to let the
dog out and noticed I had krausen flowing out of my airlock on day 2 of fermentation. In my
sleepy haze I...
