A while back I tried to cold crash for the first time. I wanted to minimize the amount of air (oxygen) being pulled in as the temp dropped so I riged up a tube connected to my co2 tank and put the regulator at ~1 psi. After about twenty minutes I heard a pop as the bung popped out of the better bottle. So now that it is cold outside once ore and I have a beer about to be transferred I was thinking of trying to cold crash once more.
My new plan it to inflate a ballon with co2 then zip tie the balloon to my air lock. My thinking is that any air sucked in will just be from the balloon, thus minimizing the exposer to oxygen.
Any one have any helpful thoughts on this?
