I had this happen for the first time not too long ago. I had just replaced the poppet due to a leak that new orings couldn't fix. It was very stiff and difficult to get the ball lock connector on. ...

Maui Brewings brewpub has a lot more offerings that don't get distributed. Many of them are better than their standard lineup. Definitely worth a visit.

I recently bought 4 from Adventures in Homebrewing and am very happy. It was the best price I could find at the time (about 2 months ago).

Have you tried other shops? When I bought my 20lb tank, it was out of date. I took it to west air and they swapped it out without even looking or asking.

FWIW my session IPA is mashed low (148F), with an OG of 1.048. I keep the grain bill the same as I would for an IPA, pale with a very small amount of light crystal. I also really like FWHing for...

As mentioned, go with 4" shanks. I just put 3" ones in mine with a 2x6 collar and they wouldn't fit with an additional 1" collar. I'd also second getting stainless shanks.

I second the use of WLP080. I use it my cream ale and am very happy with it. I also agree with the american 2 or 6 row. I use 6-row and flaked corn in mine and couldn't be happier.

I use WLP080 for my cream ale and have been very happy with the results. Although, I've never tried a different strain in it. I ferment it at 66F.

I stopped going to airgas years ago when I realized that the price varied each trip. Sometimes it was $15 sometimes $20, once it was $27/28 and that was the last time. I even asked the guy why it...
