That's what I was afraid of; having only ever kegged one beer, I wasn't sure. Thanks for the info.

Gas dip tube...totally necessary?

So, I bought a couple pin-lock kegs a while back, but only had enough hoses, taps, etc to hook up one at the time. I'm looking to get the rest of what I need to get both kegs going at once, but I...

So I recently took apart my 2-piece ball valve (from Bargain Fittings) to clean it, only to find that one of the two white teflon seals (on either side of the ball) was totally mangled past the point...

Probably too late, but I'm interested in the corny kegs as well. I'm located in Columbus, GA, so I could pick up.

It's an IPA. I know you want to call it a "Golden Ale", but you've made an IPA. A little low on the IBUs, perhaps, but with the higher-alcohol content and the hop character you'll get from the dry...

Without seeing the recipe, it's hard to make a judgement. However, unless you're brewing this for competition, the style designation is really unimportant.

Brew what you want to drink, style...

I can't speak to the differences because I've only ever done it beer onto gelatin. Maybe next time I'll try it the other way round. I also never have to use it in a lager; 5 or 6 weeks at 32F usually...

I've always done it that way. I rack my already cold beer onto my gelatin mixture and let it sit in the freezer for a couple of days. 48 hours is plenty of time for crystal clear beer, but there is...

I don't know if it will affect the yeast at all, but I'm pretty sure you'll have better success if you rack cold beer onto the gelatin and keep it cold for a couple of days. If you just pour it in,...

I've heard that as long as the wort is turning itself over, you've got a strong enough boil. There was a Brewing TV (RIP) video a while back of Jon Palmer brewing a batch of beer, and the shots of...

I'm going to have 3 standard faucets and one stout faucet hooked up to nitro. With only 1 nitro keg, it won't need a distributor, so I'd have 3 running off of the secondary regulator/distributor.
