So I believe I have determined the source of my leak to be a bad regulator. I have tried
another, and pressure will hold over night if I crank it up to 30 and shut off the tank. My
question is, should...

Just to update, I finally took care of this. Paint and bondo add about fifteen dollars to the
cost of the tank. Doing a swap is much cheaper if you need a hydro test.Thanks everyone.

Anyone going to the Great Taste this year? Tickets go on sale this Sunday. You could always try
your luck in the mail lottery on Monday if you can't wait in line.

I was thinking he meant the tape was for the threads on the co2 disconnects but I may be
mistaken. So do you not use Teflon tape at all then?

I picked up the gasket for the regulator and they mentioned using teflon tape on threads. So
I'm assuming I should get some of that too before I get the tank filled and hooked up?

I've had 2 CO2 tanks run empty. The first time I thought the tank wasn't filled properly. The
second time I know it was full. I didn't even manage to go through 2 kegs between the 2 tanks.
I am 99% ce...

I agree with getting yourself a real spoon, but do you other guys think his current spoon is
the problem?Is Lake Mendota still frozen?I am not sure about Lake Mendota, I haven't seen it in
a while. Bu...

I have a 72 qt pot with steamer basket. With sub-1.070 beers I generally get 75% efficiency.
Did a 1.095 beer and got 71%. Session beers give me over ~85%. There are a couple things I find
affect my e...

I have been doing biab with the 11 gallon bayou classic pot and basket, but getting lower
efficiencies. They're around 60%. Has anyone found that using the basket lowers efficiency?
This would make se...
Posted in thread: BIAB Efficiency Calculation on 04-15-2013 at 03:47 AM
Ok, so I can double mill at 0.030 next time and do a sparge to increase efficiency then? The
spoon I use for brewing isn't actually that big, it is just a slotted spoon for cooking and
such. Perhaps I...
