    Digitalb - To make the pivot point I drilled through all three posts with a 1-1/2 inch hole saw
    to be able to fit the 1-1/2 inch galvanized pipe through. I then put a piece of threaded rod

    +1 for A4J... Cost is the only reason that most people don't want to start kegging. It is
    totally worth doing though. When you keg you brew more often, because you have less work to do

    5. Check for leaks with dish soap. It will make tiny bubbles. You can bleed a tank dry over
    night with even a small leak. Make sure to test for leaks any time you get the tank filled.

    A decent solution would be to use teflon tape. Put a good amount on the threads on the outer
    side of the fitting. This will help to stop small leaks. This problem usually stems from either

    1. You don't need to shut anything off. All of the components are designed to have the pressure
    on them 24-7. 2. The top gauge shows the pressure reduction from the tank. The tank is higher

    gungadin - I've been doing primary only for this beer. I give it about 4 days then add my dry
    hops addition and then try and warm it up a little bit at about 7 days for a diacetyl rest. I
    usually cold...

    Just brewed this again; I really like the recipe. I've been stepping up the later hop additions
    and doing some dry hopping to it as well. So far I have brewed 20 gallons of this beer.I liked
    it so muc...
