    Grainfather Glycol chiller hoses

    Does anyone know where i can get a replacement red hose that connects from the Grainfather glycol chiller to the fermenter? I just like to have replacements for everything in case something goes wrong on brew day. I think it may be 3/8 ID and 1/2 OD but i may be incorrect.

    Northern Brewer Apricot blonde ale

    I just finished carbonating this beer in a keg for 10 days at 8 psi. It's still not the carbonation I want. It has a foam head but it's not what I was expecting. Can anyone recommend a Psi and schedule going forward to get more carbonation in this beer?

    Fermenting Temperature?

    Ive been carbonating it at 8 psi for 10 days now. It tastes great but I’m wondering how the carbonation turned out on your batches? With the purée added does it take away from the carbonation?

    Grainfather pressure transfer

    I am trying to find which barb will connect to the Grainfather pressure transfer to the CO2 regulator. The 1/4 barb seems to fit to the tube but I am trying to find what the connection to the CO2 regulator is? It seems to measure 1/2 inch? Does this seem correct? Any help is appreciated.

    Non standard gas line for Grainfather Pressure Transfer Kit.

    Would a 1/4 in barb suffice? I ordered a 3/8 in barb and it is way too big.
