    Connecting Sankey Tap to Picnic Faucet

    Absolutely, Bobby. I've got the tank, regulator, distributor and hoses ready to go! It's just that the tower and drip tray I want are too damn expensive for me right now. My real question comes when I want to connect the picnic faucet to the coupler. Most towers I've seen have to screw-on nut...

    Connecting Sankey Tap to Picnic Faucet

    Hey guys, I was just wondering now that my keezer project is properly insulated and have the temperature control device installed if it would be possible to connect a commercial keg to a sankey coupler and have the beer line connected to 5-6 ft. of 3/16" tubing connected with a picnic tap. This...

    Yet Another Freezer Conversion

    Thanks! I'm guessing you used the 1". Is that enought insulation for the top or are you losing coldness?

    Yet Another Freezer Conversion

    Where did you get that type of insulation for the lid?! I've been looking around for it, but I can't seem to find it. I need to do the same exactly lining on the top like you did. Is there any special name to it?

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    Thank you Bobby, that is exactly the information I was looking for. It's at 30 psi right now in the unplugged chest freezer. I'll just disconnect after 2 weeks and cellar until the kegerator is complete.

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    So I consulted the temp/psi chart from the sticky on this forum about carbonation and it warns me that the temp I entered (70 deg.) is too high for unpasturized beer and it warns that it will spoil quickly. Now I've been brewing for a few years, and I'm by no means an expert, but it seems like...

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    Yep! That's the one. I'm planning on using the valve on the regulator to feed a 4 port distributor. How would I know if the valves on the distributor have check valves, or would I have to fit all the distributor's valves with new check valves?

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    That's the thing, I really DO want to hook it to the gas and I DON'T want to prime it with anything.

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    Way ahead of you on that on findthefish. However that will come sometime after the thermostat controller. Also, I have a premium series Micromatic dual guage regulator and the outlet valve on it looks exactly like a check valve. Am I being too hopeful in thinking there is a check valve already...

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    Thanks for the speedy reply guys. My priming sugar went away with my bottles so that's not an option. So the consensus is to set at 40 psi and let it sit?

    Keg Carbing at Room Temp

    Hello to everyone! I've been reading these forums for longer than I can remember and they have been a wealth of information for me, so my many thanks go out. Now that I'm registered (FINALLY!), I've got a question that I know one of you can shed some light on. I just got done racking my...
