    Breathing StarSan from spray bottle

    Haha that's a good one :) I sprayed below my face, but I think what I felt was "backsplash" from spraying the fermenter lid, fermenter etc. I don't have much space as I live in an apartment but j would also prefer being able to simply dunk stuff.

    Don't Do That.

    Don't breathe StarSan mist created by your spray bottle..

    Breathing StarSan from spray bottle

    Haha yeah.. Thanks for the link and reply :) The quantity I used was 10 ml to 5 litres of water. I saw many videos with people using StarSan in spray bottles. How do they protect themselves?

    Breathing StarSan from spray bottle

    Hi HBT I was making a Christmas mead today and as usual I had StarSan handy in a spray bottle to kill nasties. I was in my rather small kitchen and after a while I could feel something irritating my throat / lungs. I knew it was the mist from the StarSan bottle. All of a sudden it hit me that...

    Anyone know how to carbonate a vintage glass siphon seltzer bottle?

    Are the tops not lead? I think they used to be..

    How long will kegged seltzer keep?

    Hi HBT! How long will tap water carbonated in a keg keep at 3.5C? The tap water in my country is considered sterile according to my government. Thanks for your input in advance. I'm kind of in the deep end here as I usually brew beer.

    Do I need some type of o-ring for this flare swivel nut?

    Phew! I don't have a HBS locally so this would set me back a week.. I have two kegs worth of beer that need to go in my kegerator and I just bought a second tap, so this would have really come at a bad time. Thanks a lot for the feedback!

    Do I need some type of o-ring for this flare swivel nut?

    Thanks for the quick answers! The precise disconnect I have have is this: https://shop.humle.se/en/equipment/connectors/keg-couplers/ball-lock/gas/threaded-ball-lock-disconnect-14-mfl-gas Did I understand correctly when I understand that I don't need a washer for this?

    Do I need some type of o-ring for this flare swivel nut?

    It's supposed to go on a threaded ball lock disconnect

    Do I need some type of o-ring for this flare swivel nut?

    Hi HBT! I recently purchased a flare swivel nut to screw onto the connector side of my keg so I can connect a hose to the gas side. My question is this: do I need an o-ring to ensure a seal? I can't seem to attach a picture of it to this post so the link is here...

    Cleaning the Grainfather (Counter Flow Chiller) CFC after a long hiatus

    OK thanks a lot for the feedback. I always clean wort out of the CFC with hot, clean water after a brew.

    Cleaning the Grainfather (Counter Flow Chiller) CFC after a long hiatus

    Hi all! I have had a grainfather for a while now but have had a brewing hiatus. I find it hard to fully drain the CFC free of water. I picked up the CFC yesteday and realized that it had not drained completely, meaning that there has been water inside it or two or three months. My normal...

    How do I ferment warm when using kveik yeast?

    Hi HBT! I am quite interested in trying out kveik yeast. It seems to be all the rage. I've read that you should ferment them warm (18 C and up to 39 C or so). My question is this: Normally we want to keep the temperature of the fermentation vessel down - for this I have a temperature controlled...

    Are my beer lines still OK to use?

    Thanks, Yooper!

    Are my beer lines still OK to use?

    Hi everyone! I have a kegerator and I have not cleaned the beer lines for around 1.5 months. The lines have had either CO2, beer or a mixture of the two inside the entire time (no air) and have been refrigerated at 3.5C (no room temperature). I was wondering whether I can still use the lines if...

    Taste-wise, is it too early to keg my stout?

    This is actually a great idea. I could just age it in the keg.. Are there any downsides to this?

    Taste-wise, is it too early to keg my stout?

    I luckily did not promise to have my homebrew ready for the particular event, I would have just loved to surprise my guests. I did not plan it as a quick turnaround beer, I just brewed it and hoped maybe it would be ready. This also means that I can leave it longer, which I probably will. Would...

    Taste-wise, is it too early to keg my stout?

    I did not try it yet. Luckily I didn't promise to be the beer hookup for the party so I can leave it to age longer, I would just have loved to taste it on the occasion. Alternatively I will buy some craft beers for my guests. I don't have a nitro setup.. Just CO2.

    Taste-wise, is it too early to keg my stout?

    Hi all. 15 days ago I brewed a stout with Nottingham Ale yeast. I am hosting a St. Patricks day-themed party on Sunday so this would be kegged friday night, and was wondering whether it would be ready taste-wise? I have more experience with lower ABV beers with a quicker turnaround time, but I...
