I tried some of this in late Feb maybe just before the keg ran out and it was gone for the year. Awesome taste, not too hoppy and went down smooth. Wondering if anyone has made a copy of this yet?...

I'm a bit lost as to what you are saying. It was my understanding that you pull the hot wort from one pot and as it runs through the CFC it cools to temp. Upon exit it just runs into the fermentation...

Well, I put 10 feet of line on it and still get foam. Instead of only 1/4 glass and the rest foam I now get a bit over a half glass and then foam. I did notice that I had the pressure set at almost...

You have what is referred to as a racetrack keg. It is an original firestone. Be very careful with the plastic dip tubes. They are no longer available.

As mentioned, look at the Williams website. ...

Most hpse we use is 3/16. You could sue the 1/4" but you would need a lot of it and it's not worth it.
