So i tried again last night. After dropping temperature 5 degrees and bleeding pressure few hours prior. worked better but still had foaming. I think i narrowed it down to the stopper not fitting the bottle. it is very loose. LHBS said it was a #2 stopper but it doesnt make good seal to build...
Attempted to bottle my Kolsch last night but all i got was half bottles of foam.
1. bled pressure from keg.
2. Turned pressure down to 2psi
3. Attached bottling wand with #2 stopper to picnic tap.
4. Stuck in first sanitized bottle.(stopper didnt fit bottle snug)
5. Fully opened picnic tap...
I am limited in space in my NYC condo so i was thinking about building a vertical kegerator/fermenter combo. The basic design of the kegerator would be as per https://www.homebrewtalk.com/entries/custom-danby-conversion.html Instead of the tower i would have a fan connected to 3" hole to blow...
Confirmed it is a 10 gallon.
There is a slight drip from ball valve but i am assuming that is because i didnt not install with teflon tape.
Do you remove valve after every brew or can i leave in place?
Ok so i received the kettle this morning.
took out of box and was surprised to see weldless fitting instead of the welded ones i ordered. i think i like weldless better.
Pot feels really sturdy. i will update once i can fill with water afterwork.
