Mini keg / growler silicone dip tube question

Hi. Have just purchased a 10L mini keg / growler. Can anyone tell me what diameter of silicone tubing I need to use as the dip tube? Here's the tap dispenser that I bought: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Stainless-Steel-Mini-Keg-Beer-Growler-Spear-Tap-Dispenser-For-Craft-Beer-R2U4/313264355456?_trkparms...

Replacement lids

Hey folks,

Anyone know where I can buy replacement lids with rings for this style of fermenter?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Sestos PID slow to respond

Thanks guys. I used auto and when its doing its thing, it's super. But when I want to say reduce the temp, i'll tap in the new desired temp and it won't acknowledge my change straight away. Will keep going as it was for a while. It gets annoying when I override the PID if say I want to crank the tem...

Re: Storing Yeast Slurry in Bags... Would you trust these?

Freezing yeast successfully requires more than blogosphere lore. Next time I freeze some, I'll document the process to give an idea. Storing 'washed' yeast in pure water is blogosphere lore too. At room temperature, mortality becomes detectable after a few weeks. So, at best, it's short term theref...

Re: Elderflower Sparkling Wine - Using Dried Elderflowers

Don't quote me but I believe some people have 'enhanced' the elderflower by using a preservative free cordial such as Bottle Green Elderflower https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/251631485 might be worth a shot if your fresh and/or dried are a bit duff. I've heard that too. I like the id...

Re: Elderflower Sparkling Wine - Using Dried Elderflowers

I can conclude that that dry is no match for fresh. Did 2 x 10L batches dry/fresh and the difference was immense. I'll never use dry again. I combined the two batches in a corny and 'dry hopped' with more fresh. Resulting 20L is tasting very nice now. Just need to condition for 6 months now!

Sestos PID slow to respond

Howdy, I've been using a Sestos PID controller for a few years now and haven't been able to get to the bottom of a really annoying problem. Here's a typical scenario. I simply want to bring the temp down from say 67c to 65c. I set it to 65c and instead of immediately knocking off the element, it dec...

Elderflower Sparkling Wine - Using Dried Elderflowers

For a few years now, I've been promising my wife, mother and mother in law that I'd dedicate a tap on my keezer to sparkling elderflower wine. It's lockdown, so I'm finally getting round to it as have no excuse... I ordered dried elderflower and am underwhelmed by their aroma. I wasn't expecting in ...
