  • Posted in thread: First Kegged Beer a Little Too Heady on 01-23-2016 at 04:43 AM
    Really, that head looks pretty good. I have found that I need to play with my CO2 pressure, I
    run at 7 to 8 psi. I will also get a keg that is a little over carbed, I will purge the keg a
    few times un...

    Boo, The foam insulation emits fumes in a closed space. In my case, I don't know if I had a

    1/4 cup priming sugar dissolved in boiled water then chilled, in to my 5 gallon keg. I then
    purge with CO...

    silver duct tape and did use plywood on the floor. On thing that happened is I had a major

  • Posted in thread: Using keg as long term secondary - co2 and airlock on 01-12-2016 at 01:08 AM
    I like to secondary / bulk condition my brews, especially dark / big beers. I also will add
    sugar to let the brew carbonate itself, This has worked very well. My storage area maintains a
    temperature o...

    I have the 15 Gallon COFI with about 30 brews. The 5 / 6 gallon brews with 11 to 14 lbs of
    grain will yield about 75% for me. With the big brews, the efficiency goes way down, 60%. The
    brew supply sto...
