Ive worked in a mid sized 15bbl brewery. Understand that it takes about 1 person to do the
actual brewing. Its all cleaning, stacking kegs, cleaning, pouring beer if you have a taproom,

Wash them out, stick a little starsan in give a shake, in a few minutes you got sanitized
tubes. sterilization is overkill. Of course after writing this I'll get my first infection in

I have a half dozen kegs. None of them seal tight at 2psi. Up the psi somewhat and they are
tight and hold pressure forever. I think thats just how old kegs are. Gas can leak where liquid
can't so whe...

One persons equipment profile is different from another even if they happen to be the same
volume. How much is your loss in the kettle, lines, chiller? Your boil off rate? What is the
dead space in th...

Precision carbed in 10 hours isnt superfluous to me. Cranking up to 30-50 psi means something
else to think about. Bottling over carbed beer is impossible and requires degassing. $15 is
money well inv...

Couldn't you pressurize the keg thru the beer/out port? Then raise the pressure on the
stone.Yeah that's the game plan. Without head pressure carb stones create foam which leaks out
the lid. Makes an ...

There are also slightly oversize lid o-rings made of softer rubber that usually fix lid sealing
issues. I've been able to tweak all of my kegs to seal with standard o-rings so I've never used

The problem is initiating the seal when head space psi is 0. with the carb stone your supposed
to slowly increase psi from 0 to 12 or whatever carb level you serve atI'm kegging 10gal in a
few days an...

Morebeer sells a keg lid with a gas connect and carb stone line. Carb your beer and switch
lids! That would solve lid sealing issues because you can give it head pressure 1st then switch
to the carb s...

Yes this is carbonating brewery style. I'm supposed to start at 2psi and step it up over
several hours to serving pressure. O rings are lubed. I've switched lids, tried the coin trick
but lids don't s...
