    Welding Keg in Southern California

    Hi all, Any welding shop recommendations in the LA or OC area? I'm looking to have a 4" ferrule welded to a sanke for a fermenter project. I've called around looking for a shop that does small sanitary weld jobs, but no luck. Brewer's Hardware can do it but only on unbranded kegs. Thanks

I would like to use a 2.5 or 3 gallon keg for cask conditioning and would like to gravity dispense standing upright. Trying to simplify things and...

    Reverse a cold crash

    Have an imperial stout in the secondary, got impatient and decided I wanted to keg it so that I can pull a pint every now and then while it does some more aging. So i started cold crashing it at 33F. Going to be leaving town and wont get around to kegging it for another couple weeks. If I raise...
