Re: Kegerator - More foam than beer

Do you have some pictures of your setup, it might show something. How are you measured those temperatures? If you are opening the fridge to measure the temperature it will be changing pretty rapidly, depending on ambient. What is your equipment from keg to tap and what is your line length? How are y...

Beer Engine With A Cornelius

One of the reasons they I always purchased “new” (I did buy some that were 2 years old but essentially as new) corny kegs, once you have fettled about with them, replaced parts and lost a batch or two are the second hand ones really significantly cheaper?

Re: Brewfather brewing app

Brewfather now has a native app for iOS (allows proper notifications on brew day and gets rid of a few other limitations that web apps has in iOS):

Re: Beer Engine With A Cornelius

As Peebee says, I use a low pressure LP regulator. I’m in the US and this is the one I have: https://www.amazon.com/Camco-59013-Single-Propane-Regulator/dp/B0014E3MSI It is not adjustable but seems to keep good condition in the beer. Be sure to let the pressure out of the keg by lifting the safety ...

Brewing alcohol free

Where did the €16 come from and did that include postage?

Edit: nevermind i see a few shops here sell it. It would probably be easy to slant and split.

Re: Brewing alcohol free

The yeast mentioned in the above article is here. My thinking about adjusting PH is referred to in it. They recommend mash PH is adjusted. My thinking outside the box is working. Now if I can get back in the box that will be progress. https://www.hefebank-weihenstephan.de/en/products/yeast/spezialh...

Re: Starsan Discontinued ?

No final rinse. According to EU law, after using a sanitiser a final rinse is always required (for the pros). Regarding yeasts, yes, StarSan works well for yeast washing. If you ever get a chance to read the original Modernist Cuisine set it is a real eye opener to see how food safety laws around t...

Starsan Discontinued ?

Yes, but that comes with its own issues of proper storage etc. Not a problem for some that I know who use it but there are some less careful.

Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

Not with that setup. Get a squeeze tattoo bottle or similar and clean the spout with sanitiser after each use, hopefully that will help. There are others on here who have used those taps before though that might be able to give you a better idea.

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I went ahead and ordered this one... https://www.darkfarm.co.uk/product/5l-mini-keg-and-flow-tap/# It’s the same seller as the eBay link above, but on their own website they had the 5L keg on sale in a weekly special offer thing. And with a flow control tap too, for £115 with free delivery [emoji10...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

I quite fancy a mini keg as well, and have been looking at the GrowlerWerks one for some time. My brews are all one or two gallons at a time so a mini keg would be ideal for me. The price point of the GrowlerWerks really puts me off though, plus the prospect of having to import spare parts of anyth...

Re: Options for conditioning/serving bigger than a bottle, but smaller than keg?

A bit OT, but what is the build quality of the 6l ones? The handle bar weld looks flimsy in the images, but is it? Looking at them for yeast slurry storage and put them on a gas flame to boil "sterile" (will not be pressurised). What's a UK price for a corny? When I hop over the border here to Germ...
