    Ranco gone wrong

    I bought a ranco about two months ago from a retailer on ebay. A few days ago the unit stopped working. The wiring is good, the unit is getting power. It worked well for about six weeks before shutting down. I'm not getting an error message, it simply shows no sign of being on. Has...

    Adding a splitter to a manifold

    I'm looking to increase the number of beers I can have on tap, but I don't want to buy another gas splitter. I also don't want to go without a check valve. I was thinking about cutting a gas line on the keg side of the gas splitter and adding a tee. I was thinking about something like this...

    1st Time Kegging, Head but no Carbonation

    I have had my keg setup running for about 2 weeks now. I set my kegs at 12 psi at about 43 degrees F. My kegs were cold when I started them on the gas but I'm still not getting any carbonation. I do however get a nice head on my beers. I'm using cobra taps on the end of 5 feet of 3/16 tubing...

    I'm designing my new brewing system and I have access to both full sankey kegs and 7.75 gallon pony kegs. I really like Chosenwon's Rig and want to design something similar. I want to replace the HLT with a pony keg that would simply be a holding vessel for sparge water. I would use the...

    Overshot Gravity, More Yeast?

    I over shot my gravity on an IPA this afternoon. I was shooting for 1.064 but ended up with about 4.5 gallons and my gravity was 1.084. I pitched a single pack of US-05. I've got a pack of notty in reserve and I'm thinking about adding it. I want this beer to finish somewhere in the...

    Forgot Rice Hulls, What to do now?

    I just mashed in my first 10 gallon AG batch, a boulevard wheat clone, and realized that I forgot to add the rice hulls. Any ideas on a good way to add them before run-off? I was thinking I might add them in at the end of the mash and stir really well. Should I add them during the mash?

    Cleaning Stainless Steel

    I just bought a converted keg but it has an ugly black spot in the bottom. I tried a soak in C-brite but the stain is still there. Has anyone seen/dealt with this before? Here is a picture:
