I bought my paintball reg through kegconnection and that reg has worked just fine for me. I've pushed more than 30 gallons on one fill (I think I'm using 20 oz tanks) and haven't had to switch to the...

Happyvdubber,

This was actually my first 10 gallon batch, but the early addition could certainly do it. I'll cut it down to 5-10 minutes before the end of the boil next time and see how things go....

Happyvdubber,

Just one tablet.

Everyone,

Ok, thanks for the heads up about the cold break. I don't know why, but I've never gotten cold break before. Or at least I've never seen it kick up...

Three Points of Failure

Hi guys. I had a weird night brewing last night where I either screwed up or tried new things three times and I'm wondering if someone can tell me what I have going on here. I'm just doing a light...

BBBF,

I had the same question and problem, but mine is (semi) permanently attached. Luckily, the cooler fits in the backseat, but turned sideways (sidewall against the seat). On top of that, I put...

Gryphon,

I've had good luck transporting my beer and having it be extremely clean and drinkable immediately. However, I always use a secondary fermenter and have very little sediment in my kegs as...

Vongo,

I followed the same approach as outlined by Whutever. I used a 2" long x 3/8" nipple with two 3/8" x 3/8" barb ends. I don't actually have that in my current pictures, but I'll upload now...

Well, the major parts are complete. I haven't hooked up the manifold yet because I don't have my paintball canisters full yet, so I'm using my 5 pound tank instead. Still trying to figure out the...

Kirk,

Some of the new 3g kegs coming out have a thin extruded lip on the top of the skirt that adds a little (annoying) bit to the diameter. Enough to frustrate in the first place. The second part...

Ed,

The shanks are still on their way. I ordered 3" shanks which should have a little over 2" of usable length. I'll let you know if they fit or not once they show up and I have time to install...

Ouch. Well, that can be done, but my kegs seem to be exactly the wrong kind for this trimming as they have a large dimple in the middle of the base of the keg that almost touches the ground as well....

Trimmed Kegs or Trimmed Cooler?
