    Using Spunding Valve/Force Carb beer questions

    Hey everyone, not sure this is the best place to ask this question but, do you cold crash a beer before using a spunding valve? Intuitively if I'm trying to capture some of the CO2 to start natural carbonation, I would think no. But then once I do start force carb with CO2, if I cold crash...

    Kegs and Cold Crashing

    I keep my kegerator in my garage in Minnesota over the winter and it’s not heated. I bottle most of the winter. I’m in a situation where I have to keg a beer but only have about 48 hours available above freezing. The beer in the keg freezes when it hits 0 degrees outside, which it will be this...

    Force Carbing 11 Gallons

    So I brewed my first AG a little over a week ago and I am getting ready to keg it and carb it very soon (also first time kegging). I did BM's centennial blonde for my first because of all the recommendations on this site. However, I had a question regarding the force carbonation. I want to be...

    Having a hiccup while trying to force carb keg. Help needed

    Okay. I am new to homebrewing but have a pretty nice setup. I have a pin keg I just transferred my pale ale into. While connecting the white plastic connector to the gas "in" side, I tried setting the pressure and I found it is leaking out of the plastic piece. Does this need to be replaced? Or...

    Looking for this force-carb chart

    I should have bookmarked it but I forgot and now I can't find it. I'm not talking about the standard carbonation charts that everyone publishes, This was a chart that plotted Temperature (F) + Pressure (PSI) + Time (Hours) for 5 gallon batches. so you could quickly reference, for example, ok...

    Force carbonation, too much foam

    Hello everyone, I have a 5gal keg, I brewed a Belgian blond ale and it was my first time doing force carbonation, I needed ready in a couple of days so I decided to go with the agitation method, I basically put the keg in the fridge for 24 hours and then connected to gas at 30psi while I...

    Kegging my first NEIPA-advice needed

    hello everyone, Thank you for taking the time to read my post and for hopefully offering your insights. I’m about to brew my first 5 gallon NEIPA (all grain), but I have a few questions about my kegging schedule. I've looked at close to 15-20 different NEIPA recipes while developing mine, and...

    Force-carbing a lager?

    Quick question. From what I've read on these forums, many people will carb and lager at the same time. I only have a single CO2 tank and I need it back later this week so is there any issue with force-carbing it as I am lowering the temp (I just racked it to the keg and will start stepping down...

    Carbonating In The Primary

    I've got a few questions related to this topic but heres some background. I have started mostley fermenting under pressure in a 70-72F enviroment and have just been leaving enough PSI (10-15) on the spunding valve to know its all sealed up and not really do much carbing. My questions are: 1...
