That gauge isn't all that useful. It measures temperature better then how much CO2 is in your tank. I generally get my regulators without that gauge if possible, one less thing to break that way.

I've busted them while crimping them before, but never have I broken them when opening them. You sure it's not your bottle opener?

To be quite practical, I doubt you'd notice any difference even if you had precisely measured the cell count from the start and then pitched one at 240B vs. one at 280B.

40B cells is well within...

In virtually 100% of cases like this a leak in the system is the culprit. Starsan or a liquid soap mixture in a spray bottle will save you money.

What Minbari says about the dials is also correct.

That is just factually incorrect. Unless you're racking in an O2 free environment, or under pressure, it is impossible to rack from one vessel to the other without introducing more O2 then currently...

Warm up the fermenter at this point. After the majority of the fermentation is done that yeast can tolerate pretty high temps for a week or so and that can spur them to finish up. Remember though, if...

not when you're buying in bulk. 9k would be a ripoff. I wouldn't pay a penny over 6k and that'd be top dollar. Many of those kegs will require rebuilding at a minimum to hold pressure.
