Converting Newcastle Draughtkeg to use CO2 tank and party tap

I have a spare 5# CO2 tank and I was thinking it might be nice to put it in my fridge with a little 15L keg. I know they have those little taps that can take the little pellet gun style CO2...

Well, that would really mess with it's ability to hold in temp. The lid is designed to keep the temp in. While you still have to insulate the collar I wouldn't think it would help the integrity of...

It depends on several factors. I managed to cut down my moisture in there by putting the temp sensor in a beer bottle filled with water. That prevented the coils from kicking on so often and that...

That one's not big enough. For a 1/2" weldless ball valve you need a 7/8" hole.

I understand that you can drain from the bottom but I don't see how the wort doesn't come out with it. Maybe if there was... nope. I got nothing.

I thought one of the advantages to conical fermenters was being able to drain the yeast/trub out. Honestly I don't know how it would work in a normal one but I really don't know how it would work...

I'm kind of looking at this myself so *subscribed*

On a side note, round cooler? box cooler? model? I imagine there would be differences depending on the particular cooler.

Nah, shouldn't be an issue. I plan on limiting myself to 10g batches. So even with the extra water to cover what will boil off in that stage I should be fine.

Yes, it will be HERMS. When I say too hot/cold I just mean if I leave the HLT element on/off too long then that would adversely effect the mash temp as it runs thru the heat exchanger. I'm not a...

This is the advice I'm mostly getting. I'd love opposing/alternate viewpoints. I had considered initially hooking up the boil element to a PID in order to have a little less vigorous boil.

It's been put to me that with the boil element you pretty much are boiling or your cooling and there's no real need for fine control. I actually have the equipment to hook it to a PID. I just...

There you go then. Well, I've already bought the PID so I'll still install it as just a digital thermometer I guess. Then if something comes up where I need it I suppose it'll be ready.
