CO2 is not a "hazardous" gas. You should file a complaint with the owner and NEVER shop there again. $14 for me for 5lbs.

Not really, you will stir up the trub and get a bunch of crap in your beer. Just get a bottling bucket. It makes life so much simpler!

Is there a specific reason you are not using priming sugar mixed in just before bottling? 1/2 a cup per 5 gallons I think. I use the carb drops once in awhile but that is only because I keg 98% of my...

10-12 psi is about right for serving pressure on an APA. What you did is no big deal BTW you should just ignore that you added the priming sugar and force carb. The priming sugar will just increase...

Unless these are specifically made to hold pressure, this is not a good idea. Just putting some pressure on it is not enough. If you cannot find out from the maker, do not use them.

Scotch Ale yeast is tough. The only batch I ever gave away in its entirety was a Scotch Ale. Too bad you can't distill it.

If that's what it takes to make you sleep better at night, knock yourself out! Personally I cannot fathom a bigger waste of time and resources.

Perhaps a .223? Just do it from a distance. Put the pot at an angle, aim inside the pot.

Sounds like trying to drill titanium. Cost me almost a hole set of bits. I was using cheap bits I was told at that time. Maybe get a better bit?

+1 to the replies that say this is dumb as sh1t. I can't imagine doing anything as dumb as this for any reason. Sounds like a good recipe for a Darwin award.

I would say those are dangerous to use. I very seriously doubt they are good to the rated psi anymore (150?). Also it looks like the patch is rusting. Did they weld with SS or regular steel? You need...

I hate anything accept cars in my garage. I bought a large shed to get rid of everything in the garage.

I would dump that batch. Actually, I would dump the carboy too.
