    Set up suggestions

    Hey all - I’ve been doing one gallon batches in a small jug to start brewing. I currently keg into a cannonball keg which fits in my fridge and utilizes a picnic tap and disposable co2 cartridge. By a stroke of luck some friends are giving me a bunch of free stuff: a chest freezer, larger...

    Gas for kegging wine

    Hi there, Do I need 100% nitrogen for kegging wine, or will the 70/30 used for stouts/guiness work without carbonating it?

    Keg pressure after carbonation

    Hi all, I kegged my first beer and it turned out great. I do however have a couple of questions that none of the guides I find online seem to answer; - after the beer has carbonated to satisfactory levels, you drop it to ~10 psi to serve. After pouring a glass, Do you then have to crank it...

    Serving Nitro Beers Correctly

    I remember the first time I drank a nitro beer. Through various forms of sorcery, the bartender had some how arranged for my beer to have bubbles falling down in my beer instead of rising to the top. I was completely enamored by the appearance alone. With great anticipation, I took my first sip...

    The Pros and Cons of 5L Kegs

    Five liter kegs have been used for a long time. You can get them empty for you to fill with your homebrewed beer, cider, or soda. Or, you can buy them filled with beer and reuse the container after you drink the beer. They hold 1.3 gallons of beer, or 169 ounces. That’s equal to 10 pints or 14...

    Bottling and Kegging - The Best of Both Worlds

    Most of us homebrewers started out bottling our beers, some of us then decided to move on to kegging. Those who bottle claim that bottling is better for portability (bringing to parties, sharing with friends, entering competitions.) Those who keg claim that the time saved cleaning and filling...

    Taking Draft Homebrew on the Road: Your Options Compared

    Some people bottle, some keg, and some do both. Sometimes there are styles that steer you towards one medium or the other. But sometimes you keg because you just can’t stand the bottling process. That’s all fine and good, and you feel quite content in your decision to avoid bottle cleaning and...

    Craft The Perfect Draft Beer Gun Anyone?

    Over the years I had read plenty of mixed reviews about the Blichmann Beer Gun before actually pulling the trigger and getting one for myself. It seemed that the two most common complaints brewers posted about had to do with how beer bottled using the Blichmann Beer Gun could be under carbonated...

    BIAB like a BOSS

    I began my home-brewing career a little over a year ago and have to admit, I am completely hooked on the art and science of the craft. I am fortunate in that an ex-roommate of mine some years back was a keen brewer, allowing me to assist and enjoy the fruits of his labors. This provided me with...

    Carbonation Issue

    Can anyone assist with a weird carbonation issue that I’m having. I quick carb all my beers (homebrew) by kegging cold beer (36 degrees) and setting regulator to 35 psi for 48 hours, reduce to 20 psi for 4 hours (usually) depends on the beer. Then reset to 10 psi and the beer pours perfect but...

    Astringency after several weeks

    Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum, but I've been brewing for roughly 8 years or so. Nice to meet you all. In my years of brewing I've rarely encountered what I'm about to explain, as such I'm at a loss. So here goes: I've recently switched from batch sparging in mash tun to BIAB (Less time...

    anyone remember Tap-a-Draft?

    Forgot I had this, found it while cleaning out the house in preparation to move. This was my transition to kegging when I was living in a small apartment, I was tired of bottling but had no room for a keggerator. Pretty sure they don't make these anymore, but did find some info about the...

    Cleaning and sanitizing kombucha kegs

    A question for the kombucha keggers. What are you using to clean and sanitize your kegs? Iodophor or star san for sanitizing? Is washing them with hot water and synthetic vinegar enough? Do you use PBW to clean the kegs?

    New to kegging. Help please

    Hello all. I’ve been brewing for a number of years, but have always bottled simply because I have a paranoia about gas canisters.... yes, seriously. I decided to bite the Co2 tank (like Jaws) and get into kegging. I have no idea what I’m doing. I just put the beer into primary fermenter so I’ve...
