    Wire heating up.

    I used my ink bird to regulate the temp on my rims tube and the wire for the plug and going to the ink bird was a little on the hot side. Is that normal?

    Freezer question?

    So here's the dilemma. I want to remove a rack off of the commercial freezer I have to cold crash and lager my beer in their car boys. As you can see in the pics there are all kinda pipes(which I assume is the freon or whatever the gas might be) running through it. Any solid ideas on how I can...

    Stuck keg.

    I've got a delicious black Ipa that won't come out of my corny at more than a trickle. It's holding pressure, but no beer. I think the the out flow is mostly blocked, but I'm not sure. Any suggestions on how to get me back to speed? Thanks.

    Wire gauge

    For my rims I have a 1500w element. I was wondering if a 16/3 wire is the right gauge to safely wire it? Thanks guys, MJ

    Aluminum fittings for RIMS?

    I was wondering if it's feasable to use aluminum. People boil in it, its food grade for the most part and it sure is alot cheaper for the fittings in comparison to stainless. Any ideas or comment please?
