    Corney Keg Sanke Adapter?

    I have a friend who has Sanke Couplers for his kegerator lines, but is interested in having one of my beers on tap. (Home bar, no legality issues) I keg in ball lock corny kegs. Does anyone know of an adapter/lid/way that we can make this work, short of replacing a beer and gas line with corny...

    CO2 vs. Priming Sugar Conditioning

    My one track mind didn't even consider set it and forget it carbonating, then bottling off of that. That would probably be the easiest. Thanks for the idea!

    CO2 vs. Priming Sugar Conditioning

    Hey everyone, I'm newish to kegging, helped my dad a few times, but have always bottled my own. I'm just wondering the pros/cons of burst carbonating, slow carbonating, and using priming sugar for my carbonation. I'm planning on kegging about half of my batch of Kölsch that I'm currently...

    I was looking at making a starter then noticed in a thread that it wasn't a good idea.

    Early Signs - Fast Die off

    I have not yet taken a gravity reading, just happened to notice the drastic change as I was getting ready for work this AM. I did not use a starter, just the dry yeast into the wort. Thanks for the tips!

    Need a Blow-Off tube arrangement for the 7 gallon Fermonster

    I've burst my 3 piece airlock multiple times in the past, so now I use 2 2' sections of 1.75" OD PVC tubing, connected with a 90 angle into a bucket of either vodka water or starsan. That allows the wort to breathe and saves you some/lots of cleanup
