Stainless is a better conductor but I don't know if you'd see a difference! Actually although
stainless would wick heat faster the plastic actually might serve to protect the beer from the
Posted in thread: My vinyl PVC tubing is too stiff! on 02-11-2016 at 09:54 PM
Make sure the stuff you're buying at Lowes is food grade, many PVC tubes are not.For low
temperature use vinyl is fine, most people only fork over for silicone on the hot side
(draining a kettle or ma...

Put a PC fan in the keezer, always running, to ensure even temps and put the temperature probe
directly against the side of a keg and you should be OK. Unless you're trying to maintain right

CGA 580 is used for inerts: nitrogen, helium, argon. CGA 320 is used for CO2. Since this is a

Posted in thread: Using shipping scale to measure volumes on 02-04-2016 at 05:18 PM
I just picked up a $20 shipping scale on Amazon to use for AG brewing. Should be good for

measure wort (as ...
Posted in thread: Regulator not....regulating? on 02-02-2016 at 05:04 PM
Sounds like a problem with the diaphragm in the regulator. A lot of the time this problem is

The general rule around here is that you should get 1-2 x 5 gallon kegs (carbing and

purge, etc. So a 20 ...
