I'm not a sure a couple gallons of water turned into steam is that big a deal where your guys live. As I remember from childhood, it might even be a plus in the winter.

That was going to be my next suggestion. You'll still have to deal with a lot of steam to remove but CO and un-burnt gas won't be an issue. Plus it's so much nicer, much more precise, and...

I've found 50' coils are overkill for most locations, I use 20' coils in Houston in the summer to good effect. You can pour 35*-ish beer most of the time if it's less than 100* out. If it is 100*...

I don't really need to order anything, can I just buy the glass or six? I kinda like it.

Edit: Never mind, I see I can buy them now. Christmas shopping just got easier.

To get more replies, you might want to give a few more details into what a QR coded cap would be and how it would work. I don't think most of us know much about it.

I have two of the exact same valves. That's a 1/2 Female NPT fitting on the outside so you just need a 1/2 barb to hook up a hose and yes it's Home Depot common.

Remember, the 1/2 in moniker...

I gotcha now, A 1/2 in NPT to 3/8 barb is all you need, you can get them at any hardware store. I have to wonder, what were you using before?

I can't quite tell from your post where you are leaking from. Is it leaking around the fitting or through the valve. Installed correctly, a weldless fitting should not leak at all. It would help if...

If you do some more reading you'll find that most of the better brewers like to pitch a little low and let the wort rise to temp rather than the other way around. I'm guessing that's your problem.

Old Regulators

If you don't mind paying to enter twice, try both categories. You'll likely get feedback from more judges that way and find out if the oatmeal is pushing you out of guidelines for the brown.
