If you have a highly carbed beer, and want to prevent excessive foaming, while keeping the carb level constant, use long beer lines 8-10'.

You would be wise to put some keg lube on the standard type O ring. I've found they tend to leak otherwise. I believe some homebrew supply stores carry the flat O rings. Try Williams Brewing.

The fuller the keg, the fewer the beers you'll be able to serve without a source of co2 pushing the beer. If its full, you'll get only 2-3 pints, if it's 1/2 full, you could serve over a gallon,...

People naturally carbonate in kegs for real ales, so kegs can seal without the initial burst of co2. It will take longer to carb and ensuring a tight seal to start takes some extra work. Keg lube and...

If your on and off intervals are both accurate, your keezer must have a large compressor and terrible insulation. To have your temp rise by 9 deg F over 45 minutes is super fast. Even if I left my...

You make a good point about the thermal capacity of water v air. A good compromise would be to put the probe in a small volume of liquid (eg, a cup of water) to keep the freezer from coming on every...

Cut out 2 9" circles, put them in the bottom of the freezer. If they don't overlap, you have yourself a potential 2-keg keezer.

Thats the pressure in the tank pushing against the primary regulator. The number is nearly meaningless, as it has no bearing on the amount of co2 in the tank. Many of those who keg (myself included)...

The pressure on the regulator has nothing to do with how full it is. The pressure will stay the same until the tank is nearly empty. The only reliable way to know how much CO2 you have is to weigh...

I got mine from NB. They work fine. I believe the standard number of turns is 7 half turns. If you're twisting more than that, it may be the source of your problem.

Foil. No extra equipment to buy or take up space; co2 gets out, no air gets in. I ferment in a swamp cooler which catches any overflow. If you ferment at RT, put a towel underneath.

You must have a local bar/restaurant that sells Belgians. They should be glad to unload their empty bottles onto you.
