Posted in thread: High Gravity Carbonation Issue on 09-24-2013 at 06:36 AM

Interesting build. While it was smart introducing the cold "heavier" air at the top, what kind
of temperature fluctuation are you getting from the top to the bottom half? Cause even when I
reach into ...

Posted in thread: Are bottles and good gauge for keg carbonation? on 05-10-2013 at 05:46 PM

Posted in thread: Filtering from the Brew Pot to Fermenter on 01-11-2013 at 11:52 PM
I guess everyone has a different opinion on this.My valve is about a 1/2" off the bottom of my
