Re: Weighing down a hop bag

Marbles work fine, you just need enough of them.

Re: Replacing S30 valve

There is a thread on here sometime ago, on a similar subject. I can’t find it from my phone currently, but will try later, if you haven’t found it. The recommendation was essentially to replace the standard king keg lid and S30valve with a product made by Balliihoo. It is the four-inch With replace...

Re: Replacing S30 valve

Replace it with a Corny keg has in post, job done :) Aamcle I knew someone would I think that there is a typo error here it should read "GAS in post" The problem will almost certainly be in one of two places. The small seal ( the one like an old style bicycle valve) or the four inch seal on the lid...

Re: Replacing S30 valve

Through the valve. It works ok as long as the seals are newish and in the right place and I've screwed the valve into place at the right tightness, tight enough to stop gas escaping and not so tight the rubber washer distorts. There are too many variables and it's too annoying.

Re: Replacing S30 valve

It hardly ever works properly. I'm forever messing with seals and re-priming beer.

Replacing S30 valve

The S30 valve on my King Keg drives me mad. It's just too much effort to keep it working reliably so I'm looking around for a way to be rid of it but still use the King Keg, not interested in moving to Cornies. Does anyone know of a way of doing this? I can't be the only person to have thought about...

Re: Cleaning and Domestic Drainage

I have a septic tank. I don't put any cleaning fluid into any drains that go to the tank. I use sodium percarbonate for cleaning and keep it for 24 hours before disposal so I'm only putting sodium carbonate into the environment. I heave spent grains over the fence for sheep to eat (shhh - don't tell...

Re: PET bottles

If you're worried it's reasonably easy to put in a cardboard box or wrap with brown paper.

Re: Brewing Beer Like Those You Buy

I had a CJJ Berry book, "Home Brewed Beers and Stouts" that influenced my step-up from using kits to making what would now be known as "partial mashes" diastatic malt extract was available in those days, so could make a mash with malt extract some adjuncts such as torrified wheat or flaked maize, cr...
