    Yeah, 2 weeks in keg and the bitterness has calmed down notably. Still bitter but there's some flavors pushing their way through it. Perhaps that bit of conditioning gave time to balance the beer. Or perhaps I don't know what the actual FK I'm talking about. Either way, drinks well! :-D

    Reiterating that I'm not complaining about the high bitterness. It's a pleasant surprise, actually! :D

    What I wound up doing was zesting the rind of two navel oranges (valencia were not available). That didn't yield anything that looked like a large volume of zest but a little can go a long way. I put it all into a small jar and covered it in vodka. Soaked for over a week. 5 days after...

    Closed transfer stuck with a gallon left in FV

    Following up with relevant updates. • I'm convinced that my original issue was simply the dip tube drawing from above the beer line. In other words, reconfiguring the position of the dip tube on the floating ball / filter thingy helped for the next transfer. Please read on... • I followed...

    Reviving this thread 7 years later :D https://www.morebeer.com/products/m80-ipa-carlos-musques-grain-kit.html The instructions aren't clear (enough) about what to do with the zest. I want to put the zest in but instructions are telling us to put the flesh of the fruit in. I thought that the...

    Combination keg / FV / taps / keg line washer

    If anyone would like a detailed parts list / how-to, please reply in thread. * I do need some help too, please look for asterisk at the end. It can clean kegs, keg posts (any posts that accept a QD, really), my FV (Fermzilla All Rounder [including lid posts]), keezer lines, and taps. I had...

    Closed transfer stuck with a gallon left in FV

    Now we're talking!! This reminds me of @IslandLizard's method. Every so often, pull PRV of the keg to let the transfer resume. But that's it yo. I've sort of been following this method all along. However, I like the tip to have the spunding valve do the work. That's the whole damn point...

    Closed transfer stuck with a gallon left in FV

    But, of course, I don't want to repeat failure. My friends, how do I know what that pressure value is (or is it was) in the FV? Buckle up for another one of my wordy rides filled with overthinking at every turn! That pressure built up pretty early. Like, 2 days after adding those hops...

    Closed transfer stuck with a gallon left in FV

    Stylizing the important notes, responding to red text. This could have been a combination* of factors. Up until the point of stalled transfer, only the keg was being vented. I would see bubbles sitting still in the transfer hose. I'd spund to let some pressure out of keg. The bubbles...

    Closed transfer stuck with a gallon left in FV

    Impatience prevailed, yet again. I got most of what I could out of the FV before getting intermittent blasts of gas in the tube / foam exploding out of the spunding valve. The method was to add ~7psi to FV then attach the jumper hose to FV and keg. Before, the pressure was set to ~5psi. Gave...

    Closed transfer stuck with a gallon left in FV

    Fermzilla All Rounder. A gallon remains in it and foam has filled the transfer hose. Up until that point, a combination of spunding valve and pulling keg PRV were used to keep the transfer moving. • I tried combinations of depressurizing FV and keg. Nothing got it moving. • Using the...
