I just built pretty much this exact setup, so I guess I can chime in.

I went with the 2342's with RTDs. Right now they're running in on/off mode per the basic instructions in the manual. I...

Metric M6 IIRC. I was just going through this the other week. This is assuming they all come from the same factory and are all threaded to the same spec.

I was planning on direct firing the MT, so some finer control there. Supposedly adding automation is a little easier/cheaper down the road. We'll see about that I guess.

I've just gone through the first keg on my nitro faucet. I think you'll do fine to set and forget. I carbonated with co2 the same you would any other beer. Seal the lid with ~20psi and then...

A few observations after a weekend of "testing".

On low-normal carbonation beers the pour is much nicer. No more air bubble trapped at the spout. The air bubble seemed to cause some extra...

You can dry hop at pretty much any point. The colder the beer is the longer it takes for the flavor to develop though. Just taste the beer every couple of days until it stops getting "better".

We used them on some homemade wine. The ones we had were heatshrinking. A boiling tea kettle produced just the right amount of steam from the spout to do the trick.

Hope that helps!

Hi,

The length of the gas line doesn't really matter, but you have a pretty short beer line. Start at 1 psi and adjust the regulator up until you get a nice pour.
If you can, get the keg in...

If you looked at the carbonation chart (or...
