    Green Gauge? + Sanity Check

    That is correct a single stage line regulator with a third output will just pass through the HP onto the next one. The only reason you would need a two stage before that cascade of regulators would be if they were all LP line regulators.

    Help with Regulator

    I have a bag of these zip tied to every regulator so I always have a bunch, because they are a PITA. When I used to fill CO2 tanks we put a washer in a little blue cap to go over the valve outlet, they suck.

    co2 bottle/reg near refridgerant lines?

    I have the same set-up as you and leave my CO2 tanks against year round outside without a problem. Unless you fridge get down to the -109 F range there is no need to worry about the CO2.

    Confusing Gas Leak

    If you are using a 20 or 50 # CO2 make sure that where you got it from didn't give you a Siphon type tank. This would cause the o-ring to freeze, destroy, and leak all over. If it is from Airgas the label will say syphon of the right side above the writing. You can also look around or on the...

    Saison Brew, low boil temp

    Now that I have read it like 6 million times I notice he uses steep where boil would normally be and things. Lacking a bit of confidence in him now. Hey, beer is beer, it will be drunk. I steeped my grains like normal so the grains should of acted normally. I think I am going to chock this...

    Saison Brew, low boil temp

    Yeah I am a little bummed out but whatever we will see what happens. I felt like I shoulda went with what I know but figured, and he stated, that it was like that for a reason. I'll let you know the yay or nay in a couple months.

    Saison Brew, low boil temp

    Well I just called the guy at the LHBS and he stated that is how he brewed the beer and the recipe is correct!?! So I guess I will follow up in two months when I find out how it turned out.

    Saison Brew, low boil temp

    I have something to run by everyone. I picked up an extract kit from my LHBS yesterday and the guy that designed the recipe told me to boil (as it says in the directions) at 150 degrees. It just seems weird to throw boil and that low of a temp together. Has anyone mad anything by doing their...
