    Failing to force carbonate kombucha in minikeg

    First time here trying to force-carbonate my Kombucha in a minikeg (grolwer-werks 1 gallon). It comes with a 16gr co2 cartridge which they say should be enough to force carbonated the 1Gallon at 12 psi, in 2-3 days, and last through serving it. I followed the instruction, left it at 12 psi in...

    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...

    Any way to carbonate a keg without opening it and without a regulator?

    I have a 19L corny keg full of NEIPA that I wanted to force carb and get drinking quickly. After cooling the keg to 6 degrees I gave it an initial blast of CO2 to 30 psi. As I was shaking the keg, I knocked over the tank and broke my only regulator. It's not easy to buy one where I live so I...

    Nitrogenating Keg Using Diffusion Stone...Same Volume of CO2 as NCO2?

    Hey all. I brewed an Irish stout that I am very excited about and I decided to keg it (first time kegging) and to nitro it (also first time nitrogenating). I have all the equipment, the tank, the regulator, the hoses, the diffusion stone, etc and I'm 90% sure that I know how to hook it all up to...

    Direct bottle carbing

    Hello, I´m presenting an idea, I´d like to carbonate the bottles directly. Just as it sounds.. Right now I´m carbonating bottles naturally, I usually carbonate with 8g of corn sugar per liter. Carbonation is great and never had any issues with bottles exploding. What I´m trying to achieve...

    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...

    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...

    Set and Forget Carbonating Corny Keg and PSI loss

    I have two corny kegs of a blonde ale hooked up to a kegerator with a single CO2 regulator split to two gas lines . One I force carbonated by carbonating at 30 PSI for two days and then turning it down to 10PSI and letting sit for another 2 days before drinking. At that point I hooked up the...

    HELP! Beer was carbonated but is now flat :(

    So I recently kegged a saison, I hooked it up to gas and left it at 12 PSI for about 48 hours. When I came home I tried it and it was close but not carbed enough so I let it sit for another 24 hours. It is now pouring flat with no carbonation at all. Would it be a leak somewhere? Any help is...
