    Leaking system question

    Leaking system question

    Also, my pin lock disconnects seem to wiggle side to side which I think could be an issue as well.

    Leaking system question

    Awesome. Thank you for the reply. When checking the disconnects for leaks could I just turn up pressure to 20+ and dip them in water? With kegs disconnected would they gradually loose pressure even without a leak? That sounds crazy as I ask it, but curious. I did put the manifold...

    It looks like my volume post boil is higher than what I am telling Beersmith, thus decreasing my OG. Thank you for all the replies.

    Yes. Estimated is higher then actual in this case.

    Closed transfer for sure. A bit of money and time but once your process is in place it is easier and better beer because of it.

    What thread are these?

    Thanks. It is weird why it is different. Maybe my Duotight project is not going to happen....

    What thread are these?

    Hello everyone. I'm hoping that someone can help me out that has experienced this. In the picture I have one of my valves from my manifold that I bought on morebeer.com. I have decided to upgrade to Duotight fittings so I took the barb off and went to thread the Duotight fitting in and it...

    CO2 lines that are flexible?

    Awesome! With the 4mm size, what length of beer lines are you using to get a nice pour? And what PSI are you at?
