Do you mean that by no problems that you didn't have to re airate? I'd rather not if I don't have to. I like to minimize chance of infection as much as possible.

+1.
I use a nylon grain bag over my racking cane and barely get any hops. The mesh is very fine so only the tiniest particles get through.

My lines are plenty long enough, but I wasn't aware that a colder fridge = increased co2. I'll have to turn the temp down and see if that works. Thanks!

why are my kegs over carbing?

I've been force carb-ing my kegs. I keep the co2 at 11 psi and eventually(after two months) the beer overcarbs and all I can pour is foam. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

Kegging

Question: If you keg a batch and put 11 psi of co2 on and let it sit unrefridgerated and disconnected from co2 will it carbonate over a weeks time or do you need it constantly hooked to 11 psi?
