    troubleshooting

    thanks for the advice, it was indeed a stuck dip tube. I pulled it, cleaned, sanitized and put it all back together and the beer was flowing perfect. It was kind of a good lesson since I had yet to take a keg apart like that.

    troubleshooting

    I tried everything from 5-6 psi up to 12 to dispense without luck. I'm going to clean the out line when I get back from the beach today and I'll post what happens.

    troubleshooting

    hey guys, just filled my second keg about a week ago and I'm having problems I didn't have the first time. I carbonated in the same manner as last time, but this time I'm not dispensing anything but a little foam. After racking to the keg, I purged 5-6 times and set the keg in my spare bedroom...

    So Very Confused

    copy that, I know this sounded like a dumb question but like the OP, this kegging stuff seems very intimidating. My freezer and controller arrive on Thursday, my tank was filled today, and I'll be filling my first keg on Saturday so thanks to all of you for the advice!!

    So Very Confused

    after shaking and dailing in to the desired temp, do you leave the valve going from the regulator to the keg in the on position or shut it off until dispensing?

    Another one bites the dust

    Just finished up my 4th all grain. They just seem to get easier and easier. This was my first time using anything other that barley(I was making a wit.) I'm glad I read up on here to put some rice in to keep the mash from sticking. Boy was it hard to stir. It felt like I was mixing cement...

    Wheat

    thanks for the reply and advice. I've heard of people using instant rice(rice hulls), is that acceptable. I plan to brew on Saturday so we will see how it goes. By the way, how is the Christmas beer going. I watched your live feed....very informative and entertaining. Cheers!:mug:

    Wheat

    hey guys, in preparation for a wheat beer I'm doing in a week or so I stumbled across some stuff at a local German festival. It came in a 1 kg bag titled Weizen. Now I know this is wheat, but the stand that was selling it was also selling bread and I'm sure this stuff is intended to be used to...
