    DIY sankey "Kegmenter"

    My original plan was to build a conical from a sankey keg, however since I got used to fermenting in regular sankeys with a floating dip tube, the lure or the conical dump has faded away. I've also switched over to dry yeast (500g bricks) and brew much less frequently so I have no desire to...

    Sanke snap rings: Y U sometimes just no snap?!

    Most of the time when I disassemble (I do ~1:10 for deep-cleaning, but sometimes for in-keg additions, too), the snap rings just pop right out and snap right back in, "as God and Mr. Sanke intended". However, every once in a while, I get one that just won't snap back into place, and I can't...

    Sanke Keg system - required equipment

    I tried researching this in the sticky thread but all the links I clicked were dead so apologies if I'm asking a redundant question. I've picked up a set of sanke kegs off a guy who's roommate left them behind when he moved out. He doesn't know anything about them but wanted them out of his...

    Sanke Keg issue: Coupler is loose and leaky when tapped. Spins easily

    I went through C02 crazy fast on this keg. I noticed when I tapped it its loose and spins pretty easily. Then I noticed its leaky and the more I messed with it the more it leaked, UNLESS I put downward pressure on it which slowed or stopped the leak. Also I think the stem(s) is spinning when...

    Sanke Tank Depressurizing

    I bought a commercial keg to convert to a fermenter and, unsuprizingly, it was partially full and full pressurized. Since I have not particular desire to have a spear shot through my skull, I need to vent it completely. what is the best way to do that. I don't have any sanke equipment, so I'll...

    Spunding Valve for Sanke Connection - How to connect?

    Hello there, I have a full size keg and I wanted to try and use it for fermenting. I have the FastFerment, and my last batch was mediocre because I had to dry hop several times. Due to that I oxidized it and it didn't come out the way it should have. So with that said, I found this...

    At last I have all of the pieces for my Fermenter. The goal is to ferment in SS vs Plastic buckets, ferment under pressure, pressure transfer to keg. I am not really driving for Low O2 yet but it is on my mind for the future. I hope to brew this weekend and split the wort to this fermenter and a...

    Could someone please suggest some ways to for accurate chilling of sanke fermenter (to within 2 degrees) - preferably down to lagering temps, but at very least to ale-fermenting temps. I was thinking of surround the keg with coils and insulating the whole fermenter, coils and all, with some...

    Installing retaining ring on Sanke Keg

    So after getting a bunch of sanke/sankey/sanky-modified soda kegs, I set out cleaning diligently. Reassembling them, I chose to use the spiral rings that were on the kegs. For the o-ring on the spear to compress completely, either a industry standard spiral retaining ring needs to be...
