Sight glass for Coors keg

Anybody have a sight glass for the bulged out coors kegs? I was thinking that a standard one with a longer coupler between the bulkhead and elbow would work. I only have coors kegs and it took me...

I know someone did a thread on disasembling and cleaning ball lock connectors but I can't seem to find it. Anyone have a link?

Where to put temp control probe?

I have a Ranco temp controller and I've just been taping it to the side of the fermentation vessel so that it tries to keep the beer at exactly the temp I'm looking for. My concern is that it might...

I just leave it in the keg. I attach it to the dip tube, but sitting here thinking about it I'm not sure why as it isn't going anywhere.

The only "off flavors" I've ever gotten is in the first few...

It should be fine and even better it's an IPA with a lot of alcohol and hops. Are you using corny kegs? If so the posts come off with a 7/8s wrench for most of them. I have one that is smaller.

I leave mine in the primary as long as I want. I've had some sit for months. I find that those beers are better than the ones left for a short time. They get more time to clear and the yeast get...

If I'm not mistaken, oxidation is not a concern with a starter as you're not really trying to make finished beer, but make as many yeast cells as possible. You actually want as much oxygen in the...

I have had good luck with natural carbing, but I prefer force carbing. You get less sediment and you can dial in the pressure exactly. I only do the set and forget method though and my beer sits at...

Buckets FTW. Cheap, easy to use/lift/carry, easy to clean, just easy. I'll be phasing out my 6.5g glass carboys and going to all 7.9 gallon buckets. Plenty of room for fermentation.

Simply awesome. I just put 2 of these into a keg of Belgian Wit that I had at 12PSI. I really wanted to run 15PSI, but with only 5ft it sucked to pour. Now 15PSI no problems. I may even run a 1/2 or...

Sounds like it's definitely a problem with the poppet. Other than that it's just a straight shot through. Take the gas in side apart and make sure that nothing is out of place. Make sure the little...

IMO set and forget is the only way to go. I've tried the burst carb method and I've ended up with overcarbed beers that need to be purged off or make a lot of foam in the lines from CO2 coming out of...

CO2 pressure is temp dependent so as you cool it the pressure goes down and warm it and the pressure goes up. Mine sits around 600.

Just DC the pressure, pull the bleeder, and let it sit. It will off gas some so you'll have to do it over and over again. Eventually you'll get it low enough and can reset at serving pressure.

It's like really dry apple cider. I made some and some folks liked it but I'm not much of a fan. If you add the extra sugar to make it 8-9%ABV, it'll sneak up on you.
