    Big mouth bubbler closed transfer!

    I need to do a closed transfer to keg soon on a super hoppy NEIPA from a BMB with a spigot and single stopper lid so I'm excited to see this thread. Everything I read is oxygen is really important to eliminate on these kinds of beers so I want to be very careful. Toddnlinn - did you try this...

    Has anyone ever done this? I need some serious advice on the matter! Already fermenting and will need to close transfer in the next few days.

    C02 regulator affected by tank size??

    I have a 5# C02 tank and was told by my lhbs that the pressure gauge doesn't accurately reflect fullness/emptyness of the tank (vs same gauge on larger tank would be more accurate). Has anyone ever heard of that? I suspect I have a leak somewhere and am concerned that if I can't trust the...

    Postponing the yeast pitch & not chilling wort

    I went through the chilling process and placed in sanitized fermenter with lid/airlock just to be on the safe side. I'm making this brew for my son's wedding so I really didn't want to blow it!

    Postponing the yeast pitch & not chilling wort

    I dweebed out and forgot to get my yeast out yesterday but I really need to get started on a batch of beer tonight. A brief look around tells me that postponing the pitch isn't a problem as long as cleaning/sanitizing is good (which it is). My big question is what about chilling wort?? My...

    last minute biggie size to mini mash???

    To anyone who cares how this turned out, I did indeed double up and hit my target OG. I had my first boil over ever, however, which was a giant PIA but thankfully I was brewing outside so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

    last minute biggie size to mini mash???

    I need to make 10g of a recipe for my son's wedding. I was going to do a 5g this weekend and 5g next weekend because of my brew equipment and intention to do a BIAB with full volume. The brew store messed up and pulled mini mash quantities so I went with it (that's what I started brewing with...

    Ball lock posts won't work with quick disconnect!

    yep crappy photo for sure. believe me, the post with the red o-ring is definitely the gas in (compared very carefully to other post on same keg after my previous fiasco of a few months ago when i had them switched up on a different keg). the post with the black o-ring is gas in from a...

    Ball lock posts won't work with quick disconnect!

    RESOLVED!! I replaced the o-ring which didn't make a difference but I did add the lube on the post and then pushed the collar down. Click. Now I'm powered up. Thanks very much

    Ball lock posts won't work with quick disconnect!

    I'm putting a used ball lock corny keg to work for the first time and my quick disconnect won't fit. I have already learned the lesson the hard way about the difference between in and out posts so I'm 100% confident I'm using the in post. The problem is the QD won't click in real good...it's...

    First cider

    I age my ciders at room temp and they really seem to hit their stride at ~6months. Last June I made a batch of apple cider and experimented at secondary by pulling out 1g with stawberries, 1g with blueberries and 1g with raspberries. I tried my apple-blueberry cider last night and it was...

    natural carbing in keg...FAIL! Fixable?

    As a follow up note, the additional time in the keezer at 45F & 10psi did NOT do the trick. I pumped it up to 16psi and within 24hrs it was perfect.
