    All Grain Brew Issues

    I had my first one yesterday at a Mexican restaurant with Modelo. Surprising really good, and a nice change from hoppy beers.

    Intertap return springs on standard shanks???

    Ha! That's pretty, crafty.. I like! I use the springs on my three taps as well (with Intertap shanks). I did compare shanks and they all seemed to be about the same besides branding honestly. I got them because Intertap labeled them as only working with their own parts.. didn't know any better...

    Bench Capper

    https://www.morebeer.com/products/colt-strong-high-pressure-bench-bottle-capper.html Another owner of one of these too. It works well and is very sturdy. I'm actually trying to sell it because I started kegging and just use swing top bottles if I am giving some away... if you're interested? It...

    Grainfather Conical Fermenter Owners Thread

    Ok so I kegged the porter I had in mine last night and broke the valve down. The two sets of orings came in so I tried them both on the trub dump valve shaft. So.. the 1.5mm x 11.5mm are too big and won't work. The 1.5mm x 7mm are very tight, but they work. I now see why you said they are...

    Grainfather Conical Fermenter Owners Thread

    I had issues with this, and on glass carboys, too. You want to pull the bung back out, and squirt some star-san on it and around the hole in the lid. The grab a clean towel or maybe a sheet of paper towel and wipe off the moisture left around the hole and the bung.. and then squish that thing...

    ANVIL FOUNDRY ALL-GRAIN BREWING SYSTEM

    I'm curious how you connected that loc-line setup on the lid hole? Do you happen to have some pictures?

    Grainfather Conical Fermenter Owners Thread

    No idea when it happened to mine. There was a power outage here this past Monday night through mid day Tuesday and that's about the last I see on the tracking graph in app. I have a Tilt linked to it and when I open the app for that, it throws a huge error trying to link itself to the GF cloud...

    Funny you say that.. I was checking mine last night and saw it lost connection in the app too. Shows it's connected on the controller itself.. very weird.

    Whoa , this is interesting.

    Which shop is this? I don't live that far away.. might need to check this out! Also, I think this is what another one in Modesto does too that's called Renegade Brewing Supplies. At the same address there is also a Desert Fox Brew Co.

    Grainfather Conical Fermenter Owners Thread

    I was going to pull that ball valve apart, but got side tracked yesterday before I started brewing. I pulled the ball valve apart on my Anvil Foundry and thought I had cleaned it the last time... nope. It was nasty. I can only imagine how the conical one looks now. 🤦‍♂️ I ordered both the 1.5 x...

    Grainfather Conical Fermenter Owners Thread

    So I got these about two weeks ago, and all of them seem to be fitting pretty well. I pulled the dump valve apart completely (I never have before, and it was nasty in the shaft). The original oring between the two bushings was broken when I pulled the shaft out. I got to this part of the oring...
