1 capsules carbonated it a little, but definitely more on flat side. It works with my English Ale style but if I were doing a Cream Ale or something, definitely need at least 2 capsules.

I finally used today on a batch that ended up being just under 5g. I only used 1 capsule per bottle since its a Standard Bitter which is supposed to be lower carbonation, so figured 1 would be...

I think I'll end up using a gate latch too b/c my door is what is magnetize, so I'd have to get metal strips to make it work. I don't have the ability to customize metal strips.

Nice. I want to try to accomplish this. My kegerator is a tad too small to fit 2 Cornys or a Slim 1/4.

I want to do this as well as need around 2-3" to be able to fit a Slim 1/4 keg in mine. It would open up more options when people are over and better deals.

So basically: remove door, I will need...

This is an old thread so taking a shot in the dark. Do you have a good instructions and/or more detail on how to do this. I converted my old college dorm fridge into a kegerator and its worked fine...

If you want to use the 5-7' lines I would strongly recommend a fan for sure. Otherwise the combo of a shorter line and warmer temp near the tap is going to cause foaming. The fan will at least give...

I'd go with the longer line as you can always cut it down. I built a kegerator last spring, got a 7' line, and had nothing but foam. I swapped in a 10' line and the issues got better. With that...

I hear you on price. If you use as directed and get lets say 50 bottles/batch, you only get 2 batches which essentially adds $10 to your batch price. I got mine with a gift card so I guess its...

So you used 1 tablet per bottle? I thought the recommendation is 2 but that would be awesome if 1/bottle works. I have a gift card at NB and am thinking of trying these out since no cost to me.

I'm just looking to add depth. Unfortunately my fridge has the hump over the motor which costs me like 4-5". I just wish I had the capability to get the 1/4 slim kegs.

That's interesting as that kind of is what my odor/flavor could be described as. But I've also been told that the sanitizer bubbles, etc do no harm and have never had an issue in the past.

Do you have a material list, instruction on how to expand your mini fridge/kegerator? I'm looking to add like 3" on mine so I can fit a slim 1/4 barrel instead of just 1/6 barrels.

I think at Menards alot of what I saw was also up to 180 degrees, and yes that is plenty. Generally speaking the temps are going to be in the 140 degree range when I drain into the boil. I'll...

Yes, after thinking about it this would be a nice option to bottle a 12 pack and then keg the rest.

Do you know what size barb would be needed for the ball valve? I was thinking of adding one so I can connect a hose to drain the kettle.

Yeah, I may swap out buckets pretty soon as it's cheap enough to do so. I have about 1.5 years/10 batches with my current one. Maybe at Batch 15, change it out. We'll see.
