    Bore Size on Draft Beer Shanks

    I'm in the process of building a kegerator. My questions involves what shanks to purchase. I plan on running 3/16th beverage line from the kegs to the shanks. I am convinced I want stainless steel for the shanks as well. Is there an issue with using shanks with a 1/4 inch bore as opposed to...

    Where did I go wrong?

    The FG of this all Crystal 40L was 1.001, and as dark as Guinness.

    Where did I go wrong?

    Well, I let this mess ferment....oh it was BAD. Couldn't bring myself to do more than sip this. Sorry, no video. Trust me it would have been ugly! On a high note, just racked an IPA into secondary fermenter that was. Reese with 10 lbs of Pale Malt and 2 lbs of Crystal 40. This is MUCH better...

    Agreed, I will see this syrupy brew through to the end and for my penance, I will give a testimonial here as to how it turned out.

    Where did I go wrong?

    Well I guess I have mud on my face and probably an awful first all grain batch. The grain bill was my idea. I based it on a partial grain APA I did a few years ago. In that brew I used 2 lbs of Crystal 40L that I steeped before adding DME as the base. I figured that more of a good thing was even...

    Where did I go wrong?

    Thanks for the information. I used 5-star for sanitation. I cleaned and scrubbed everything with C-Brite and then sanitized with 5-Star, including the yeast packet. The yeast packet was so swollen I couldn't use the tear tab on the package. I did sanitize the knife blade before opening...

    Where did I go wrong?

    I pitched the yeast at room temp not right out of the fridge. I am getting good bubbling action now with the second addition of yeast.

    Where did I go wrong?

    On Saturday I brewed an APA. It was an all grain recipe. I used 12 lbs. of Caramel/Crystal malt-40L. and did a two stage sparge resulting in a 5 gallon batch. For the yeast I used Wyeast 1056. After two days in the fermenter, I had no fermentation. I think what happened is that I...

    Source for Silicone O Rings

    I have been searching the internet for silicone o rings in order to assemble weldless bulkheads for brew pots and hot liquor tanks. The sites I find have nomenclature that I do not understand. Has anyone out there found sources that easily identify o ring sizes? Thanks in advance.
