My main concern would be the threadings on vigorous fermentations (i.e. specifically on batches
where a blow off tube is REQUIRED). Does the threading get gunked up and how difficult is it to

Would a Star-San soak cause the same micro fractures? So far, I've only flushed with warm-hot
water and submerged in my bucket o'star-san before and after use...(which could easily have
been up to or ...

The cloudiness is from the hot water and prolonged PBW soaks. The plastic siphon pieces get
micro fractures from hot water and extended cleaner soaks. Eventually they will form legit
cracks and cause ...

You can use them. I know people do, but I just think they are fugly (the kegs...and some of the

gal.* I'm guessing ...

Most overall temperature drop, no.So you think using the same temp water you could get your
wort down to a cooler temp if your input is at the bottom versus the top? Is that what you're
referring to a...

I've always made mine with the cold input at the top.It stands to reason that to get the
fastest temperature drop you want your chill water contacting the hottest wort first. Since
heat rises, this sh...
