Re: Balancing pressure in fermentation vessel.

The Starsan is unlikely to have ruined it. It might help to let us know what the actual fermenter is as they are not all built equally, especially with regard to pressurising them (it might change the advice somewhat).

Re: Cheapest way to fill bottles from a corny

Great video and easy process Jocky! I’m surprised that you didn’t use the plastic tubing from a bottling wand in the party tap, as I’ve heard of others using, but it makes for a simpler process if it works as well. I see you show both a flow control disconnect and a normal one, if using the FC ones ...

Re: Priming with brewing sugar

No worries. Just realised that as you are bottling the serving temperature isn’t so important. Try using the calculator below but make sure you use metric measurements, as it isn’t clear if that is US or imperial gallons for the volume. Also make sure you select if it’s an English pale ale or Americ...

Re: Priming with brewing sugar

It depends on the beer style and what temperature you intend to serve at.

Re: How can I use my Keggarator for draught style homebrew?

The mini kegs are suitable for using with home brew and can be reused too, although they do have a limited lifespan. You fill them carefully with the finished beer (siphon or using a tap and tubing, being careful to avoid splashing) and some priming sugar (less than you would use for bottling - mayb...

Re: First go at Kegging

Thanks f00b4r. So, I was looking at using a 23l fermenting bin from brew2bottle. If I then syphon into the mini keg? Would this be okay? Struggling to figure out how to then carbonate it once it's in the mini keg. It might be worth keeping this to the one thread, to avoid confusion. Jocky, some mor...

Re: Placing of Inkbird Temperature Probe

If attaching to the side, I find ratchet straps are better than tape to hold the insulated pouch to the fermenter.

Re: How can I use my Keggarator for draught style homebrew?

I’ve not seen that particular product, is it compatible with those mini kegs?

Re: First go at Kegging

or otherwise naturally carbonating in the keg (like a giant bottle!) and serving with CO2. I'm about to attempt my first homebrew and a complete first timer! I hope to use a 5l mini keg and use my Royal Catering dispenser (with CO2 cartridge) to serve. Is this what you mean? How exactly do I go abo...

Re: Adventures in Kreik, Keg fermentation and Spunding Valves

I've managed brewing a standard bitter on a Saturday and it in a glass by the Friday. Its certainly drinkable at that point but you'll see a massive improvement whilst getting down the keg. My last several batches have just saved 500ml of the trub which gets dumped into the next batch. Its saving a...

Re: Adventures in Kreik, Keg fermentation and Spunding Valves

It will ferment fast, whether it’s vaguely drinkable in that time is another matter and whether you think it’s close to being as good as a normal/yeast schedule is yet another matter. [emoji23] They kveik brewed beers I have tasted have not been awful but have not been great either (from very limite...
