    Using 5 gallon cornies for 2.5 gallons of beer

    Do you plan on kegging full 5 gallon batches? I recently sold 6 of my 5 gallon kegs on Craigslist to turn around a buy 3 gallon kegs from adventures in home brewing. Still ended up with 6 kegs and some money in my pocket for other stuff. I like to bottle half my batches because they are easier...

    Kegging without a keezer (temporarily)

    When I have time to wait and my pipeline is full, I simply dissolve 1/2 cup of priming sugar in about a cup of water, dump it in the keg and rack on top of it. I will hit the keg with a quick shot of co2 to seal it and set it aside. When I move the keg to my keezer, I bleed off the pressure and...

    Possible infection?

    First off...I have spigots on all my fermenters, both primary and secondary (because I do not always secondary my beer and bottle/keg right from the fermenter). every time I take a batch off the cake and wash the fermenter, I disassemble the spigot and wash/rinse it thoroughly...before I...

    Ministry and beer

    Sorry to bring back such an old thread... I have been looking for ways to incorporate beer and ministry and came across this thread. I will say that I obviously see nothing wrong with being of faith and moderation. Though I would never choose the best beer in the world over my...

    So, I just bought this...

    Good score for sure... Several times a year, I will throw an ad up on CL that I am looking for 5 gal kegs...I have always had really good luck and can usually get them for around 20-25 a piece. I have all pin locks in my collection, but even if someone has ball locks for sale...I buy them and...

    Keezer - temp controller probe question

    I placed my probe in a large sandwich bag and put some tape and rubber bands around it...then put it in a half gallon jar of water on the hump ( the opening end of the bag is well out of the water)...I have had my keezer open for a good 20 minutes before without the compressor ever turning on I...

    Ball or Pin lock????

    I use pin locks just because I had more of them than the ball lock...I don't like switching out disconnects all the time. I do by up ball locks as I come across them on Craigslist...then run them down to my local home brew store, and they swap them out for pin locks

    Why all the crazy beers?

    As with many, I brew "normal beer" 99% of the time...I may throw in some cherries or fresh oranges to a wheat beer once in awhile I had a peach ale from four peaks brewery in Tempe AZ a few weeks ago that was great...even my non-beer drinking wife liked it, but knowing that fruit beers get old...

    Natural carbonation in keg...

    In my doesn't matter. I have bled it off and left it in...same results either way... thing I have always done is, once I move it into the keezer, I bleed off the co2 in the keg before hooking up to the gas at 12 psi. After about 24 hours to cool down, my Carb is perfect...

    How many kegs do you own?

    Not in Rio no...I live south of Albuquerque. Im afraid that wasn't me, my work schedule does not allow me to attend any meetings at all. But if your from around here, I would like to meet up somewhere sometime and have a brew.

    Natural carbonation in keg...

    My pipeline is large enough that I always naturally Carb in the kegs. I use 1/2 cup of dextrose mixed with about two cups of water and add it to the keg just before I rack As said before want to hit it with 20-30 PSI two or three times to make sure the lid is sealed and to burp out...
