    Any clue how to get this stuff off my BK?

    Not sure if it's beer stone, but a non-scratch scrub brush and barkeeper's friend isn't doing the trick. Maybe soak it in PBW for 24 hours?

    Doubling Down: SS Brewtech Conical + FTSS + Glycol Power Pack

    Anybody know how to lower the temp parameters of the Glycol chiller? Mine currently drops to 32ºF but won't go any lower. The SS instructions are greek. I've done it before but have since forgotten.

    Is a 7 gpm pump with a micro ball sufficient enough to clean a 7G Chronical?

    What's the big difference between the two CIP balls?

    This is a great idea! Thanks!

    I usually open the PRV. When it's opened, CO2 leaves the keg (very quickly) and beer fills from the liquid-out post. I assume this will yield essentially the same results as just attaching a gas disconnect to the gas-in post,like Dunnry is saying. Although people say that the CO2 blanket within...

    Doubling Down: SS Brewtech Conical + FTSS + Glycol Power Pack

    Theoretically, I think this would work. But, I'd like to check with the hive mind to get some opinions. I have a 7G Chronical (not the UNI) in which I close transfer into kegs at about 2-3 PSI pressure. Currently I open the PRV of the keg, releasing all of the CO2 and then open the racking arm...

    At What pH is StarSan ineffective?

    I have a bucket of StarSan that is about a week old. Checking the pH, it reads about 3.5. A fresh bucket of StarSan, per my experience, usually has a pH that is 1.8-2.0. At what point would you throw out the StarSan?

    Interesting, and insightful! I assume the closer you can close the pressure gap between donor vessel and receiving vessel, the less likely you're going to have foaming issues during transfer, correct?

    I'm trying to wrap my brain around this too. So the beer in the Uni-tank is not-carbed, partially-carbed, or fully carbed when it goes into the keg? And when you put approximately 6psi on the donor vessel, the beer should flow into the pressurized keg (assuming that the spunding valve is set to...

    Good to know. I definitely have to loosen the TC quite a bit to rotate the racking arm on my 7G chronical

    Doubling Down: SS Brewtech Conical + FTSS + Glycol Power Pack

    Trying to get my bearings around that Uni. That racking port looks intense! So you only utilize that racking port on the Uni when transferring beer into a keg, correct? I assume you just take samples from the sample port and leave the racking port alone? Do you have to turn the liquid-out post...

    Can you post a photo of this set up? How are you pushing CO2 through the line to purge it of air before you transfer beer into the keg?

    Doubling Down: SS Brewtech Conical + FTSS + Glycol Power Pack

    The lowest I can get is 40ºF, but that is with my glycol at 33ºF. I fear taking it lower than that...

    +1 on these QDs. I don't use insulation on my line though. I bought thicker tubing which has minimized condensation but hasn't totally eliminated it.

    So are professional brewers pouring straight from the unitanks?

    You're not using this for heavily dry-hopped beers, right? I assume hops would clog up the filter fairly quickly. Also, how do you flush the filter with CO2?

    Post a video next time you do it. I gotta see this in action.
