    new co2 tank - excessive foaming

    Hey guys. Just got a new 6L co2 tank, as I wanted my smaller one for purging kegs and topping up my pressure fermenter, and a bigger one sitting in my kegerator. It came prefilled, brand new, with food grade co2 in there. Chain of events: Took my regulator off old tank, attached to the new one...

    Overdimensioned regulator?

    Hey, I'm relatively new to kegging, and bought like a tank regulator combo a few months back. It was from a beer specialist shop, so the regulator goes from 0-6 bar or approx 0-90 psi, so it's easy to control. I wanted another tank+reg for purging and topping up my pressure fermentor etc, so...

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    small update on this, feeling kinda dumb. this came out a beautiful deep orange color, tastes lovely with hints of biscuit and a solid malt base. I used LAIII and the fact that it ended up at 1.018 gives its a very slight residual sweetness that goes really well with the malty flavors. very...

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    Let's hope! Standard GF 60 minute boil, and as im sure you know, the GF boils are not what I would describe as especially vigorous, just a chilled out rolling boil. We'lll see how it comes out, I just did not expect to see mud in my fermenter :D Edit: just checked your link, and the recipe i...

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    Yes indeed, I don't have access to 2-row here either. I always use pilsner in my IPAs and NEIPAs, because i prefer the flavor (and color) but I wanted to try a more malty pale ale, just like you described. It's just that it looks like raw sewage in the fermenter so I was starting to second guess...

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    100% Agree. I was just worried about it tasting closer to a brown ale than a malty pale ale, if u get my meaning. I usually don't worry about colour either unless it's a NEIPA, and it's brown ;)

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    That looks pretty tasty. I was worried about how much the muddy brownish look would affect flavor, but if it ends up being similar to yours after a few weeks in the keg, I'm sure it will be fine.

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    I'm stuck with whatever I can get. Poland is not a country of great diversity, that goes for homebrewing ingredients as well unfortunately. Thanks for the info!

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    Yeah you might be right, i just felt like a 5 kg grain bill isn't that much. certainly less than what I normally go for. Thanks for the help and input!

    Pale Ale came out very dark

    It was a normal sized batch. 5.8 gallons pre boil (22 L) OG was 1.058. So I guess writing 5 gallons earlier was just a dumb conversion mistake by me EDIT: POST boil ofcourse, not pre boil. My head is not screwed on right today

    First time kegging - excessive foam

    haha thanks for this man, I made the incredible dumb mistake of thinking 3/8 was the same as 3/16 tubing in terms of inner diameter. Living in metric world, these confused the **** out of me. I got some chech flow control taps, but I have to have them on the absolute minimum setting to avoid the...
