Posted in thread: Draw tube for bottling bucket? on 07-21-2016 at 04:45 PM
It's been a while since I've bottled, but when I did I used a drilled stopper (#2 fits, I
think) with a small bent and cut length of a plastic racking cane. If you take a normal racking
cane and heat ...

I'm sure you're right. I cranked my regulator down to 5 psi, just to be sure I keep the seal.
I'll purge it once or twice a day for a couple weeks and see what happens.

I'm having a foam issue with a keg I just tapped. Typically my kegorator runs pretty smoothly,
so I haven't had to do much troubleshooting before. Here's a rundown of the data points and

I don't even have the meter yet, it should arrive tomorrow. This question just came to me as I
was thinking about testing what I have on tap.
Posted in thread: Priming and bottling from a keg on 07-12-2016 at 02:25 AM
Everything comes in circles. Like most, I bottled for the first couple years I started
homebrewing. Like many, what was fun for a few batches, quickly became a chore. So, I dove head
first into keggin...

Will carbonation throw off a pH reading? I realize that dissolved CO2 results in carbonic acid,
which I'm sure lowers the pH, I just don't know to what magnitude. That's not what I'm talking

Waiting until the very END of yesterday's brew day to find the dead spider floating around in
your star-san bucket. I know, I know, the beer will be fine, he's now just a very clean, dead
spider. But ...
Posted in thread: Types of beers for nitro dispensing on 07-08-2016 at 01:52 AM
I like what nitro does to a hoppy or bitter beer. I've done an IPA on nitro once before
(granted I had an imperial IPA on CO2 at the same time). Overall, I think IPAs are best in CO2,
but nitro will s...

Posted in thread: Fermcap and Clarity on 06-25-2016 at 04:16 AM
Per my usual protocol (without fermcap), I get reliably clear beers. I use Irish moss. I've
never used Gelatin. With this hazy beer, I did wonder if gelatin would clear it. Calder - I
