    I will say that soldering stainless steel is a lot trickier than soldering copper. Copper seems
    to be more forgiving. Keep the metal clean, use some flux, and heat the copper until solder
    flows. I can...

    Perhaps the lack of comments is because not as many folks ferment in a sanke???I don't think
    drilling two holes and soldering counts as advanced building skills. The soldering does take a
    little pract...

    Chi Company sells these nipples: says that both pin lock and ball lock posts fit them. It's
    not clear to me why those posts would only fit pin lock nipples. If ball lock and pin lock
    posts fit one ki...

    Well, you know what I think - great solution to a messy chore! Plus you gave me the idea to
    turn my yeast harvester into a container that I could purge with CO2. So, thanks!!!

    Ubermick,I gotta say, had I seen sight glasses at those prices when I had this idea, I may have
    just picked up a sight glass. Awesome deals there - I'll have to go back and see what other
    kind of shin...

    Understood. Good luck getting it right. I never could successfully bottle any light colored
    beers. Stouts were fine - dark beers couldn't get any darker and there was enough going on
    flavor wise that ...

    Nosoup,Check out the following for a terrific description of happens when beer meets oxygen:
    struggled with IPAs - nice light color with great flavor out of the fermenter and dark and dull

    JB,I scratched around a little and found a punch size that will give a hole size close to
    1-3/8". The punch size is 1" and it makes a hole 1.362" in diameter - close to the 1.375 that
    you want. Here i...

    JB,Be careful if you order a punch - a 1-3/8" punch will make a hole much larger than 1-3/8". I
    don't know what size punch is needed to make a hole of the size that you need. I think that the
    punch si...

    The knockout punch will make a much cleaner hole. I looked around for an appropriately sized
    one but couldn't find one (but I didn't look all that hard). Plus I already had step bits.If
    you're going t...
