  • Posted in thread: Kegerator Conversion with Danby DAR440BL on 02-05-2013 at 07:30 PM
    Sorry - I sold my kegerator this past weekend, so I don't have it to measure any more. It's
    also of note that I cut a hole on the side and kept my CO2 tank on the outside.

    Mine had screws. Just pulled back the gasket to expose them. Not sure if they changed the
    design or not though.

    You could also put some plywood or something underneath to help support it. Are you dead set on
    getting a new fridge? You may want to consider finding something on Craigslist. Especially
    something wit...

    Looks like a nice stand. 11 gauge is still 1/8" thick and that's some beefy steel. $400 is a
    great price for a SS stand. I would look at the quality of the welds, especially in tight
    spots, and give i...

    I did a similar thing with my Oktoberfest. I put in the fermenting fridge in the keg an extra
    week. I threw caution to the wind after that and just put in cold storage and didn't bother
    testing. Came ...

    Not sure how to quantify exactly how much heat you'll lose, but here's what I would expect:1)
    if you are doing a recirculation mash, you'll lose more heat in the process2) if you don't
    insulate your M...

    The protein schmaltz is a by product of the process but shouldn't have effected your sparge.
    How thick was your mash as compared to other mashes? How was the grind on your grain? If it was
    too fine, y...

    To save time:1. 5 minute mash2. NO boil, just pasturize your wort at 165 for a bit3. No Chill,
    straight into a No Chill cube (plastic Jerry Can). You can get your hops from a hops tea you
    make on the ...

    Reducing 5 hours to 4.5 hours, at the risk of an insufficiently converted mash seems like a
    poor idea.This. I personally don't try to find ways to save time. I like the process and during
    the mash I c...
