    Not sure about the carafa but we've found that equal parts of chocolate and 120 to 150 lovibond
    crystal seems to pop the chocolate flavor.

    I might switch out the crystal with some Vienna or Munich depending on what SRM you wanted to
    attain. Either way it will be a nice Lager!

    We've been using one of these for several years now and really like it. It will take 5 psi and
    allows kegging under pressure. Right from the fermenter tap to the OUT valve of your CO2 filled
    keg. It h...

    That's what we call our garbage beer! Whatever is left we throw it in there, in fact we are due
    for one soon! We always make the beer and then figure out what it is after we taste it. That's
    how you w...

    Might just be some of the oil from the cheese sandwich floating on top. If you pulled from
    under it and it taste good and smells good then I wouldn't worry too much. You might bottle it
    and put the bo...

    My apologies, I just reread the OP post and realized he was still in the fermenter. I cold
    crash in the keg after I force carbonate. A friend of mine likes to syphon to another car boy
    and cold crash ...

    The Ultra Flow ones might have been the ones CHI was selling. I had one and should have kept it
    but I threw it away so who knows. Oh well, I'm glad I got the ones I did. I have one working
    and will be...

    I did just see a difference, you have the wire brushed finish or satin finish, whatever they
    called it. Mine are polished. That's all I can see different. Would like to know if the
    internals are the s...

    I don't see Ultra-Flo V under the Vent-matic name on your faucets. The last Ventmatics look
    like this: they

    Cold crashing will help clarify any beer. It may take a few days. We just carbonated a session
    ale and after 3 days at 35 degrees it's still cloudy. Ofcourse the first few pours will be
    thick but shou...
