    For 5 gal I wouldn't go smaller than 3/8'' tubing. If your batch size is 3 gal or smaller you
    could get away with 1/4''.And just so you know if you calculate the surface areas based on
    manufacturers t...

    About $31. A $14 kit vs. a $45 reg, no reason to spend the extra money if it can be fixed.

    I can't find a rebuild kit for a Draught Tech regulator, does anyone know if a micromatic
    rebuild kit will work for it? The outer housing of the base model looks very similar. It got
    liquid CO2 in it ...

    For your future planning, at least on my system, I average about 75% overall eff for partigyle
    batches. I plan my first running at about 50% and my second running at about 25%. When I split
    the wort 5...

    I've never gotten three cornie kegs, 2 is about right. I also under fill mine a little for a
    safety margin, I've had the burst disk rupture in the past if they get too warm. If you carry
    an extra your...

  • Posted in thread: IIPA infected, what to do now? on 01-18-2012 at 08:01 PM
    You could add metabisulfate or cambden tabs to kill the infection and reinoculate for bottling
    once they dissipate. I've never done this but it seems like it should work.

    I've used those tables before, on the 50/50 split, my system worked a bit differently. I got
    about 50% in the first run and 25% for the second beer. I now work up my partigyles in this
    fashion and get...

    Whenever I've done high gravity, I always add more yeast at bottling. I sanitize a SST turkey
    baster and put a little reconstituted dry yeast in each bottle. That way I know the yeast wont
    be the weak...

    Also, don't forget your yeast. Depending on your planned gravity your alc% can outpace your
    yeast and wind up with an under-attenuated beer. So pick something with the character you want
    which will su...

    The most I've gotten was 26lbs @ 1qt/lbs wo/a false bottom, I use a braid. Stir gently.
