Re: Excess Barrel Pressure?

If you prime 2.5 g a LITRE of plain white sugar is all that you need. That makes 57.5 g for 23 litres.

Re: Beer temperature Finings

There are two separate actions. Chillng stops fermentation a precipitates protiens. Whereas gelatine attracts and traps particles by opposite polarity and does not require chilling for this to take place.

Re: Clean-in-place Spray Ball - ANY Fermenter/Keg

I have built a keg washer and tried one of those rotating sprayballs and found it to be worse than useless unless used facing downwards and even then it it is pretty poor. I then fitted a fixed sprayball and it works fine.

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Cool, looks good. Have you a had a chance to test one yet? I have a couple of them and they work really well. The only problem that I have is getting the silicon tube over the stainless steel dip tube of the keg post. It is a very tight fit and difficult to do even outside of the keg. Trying to do ...

Re: Sterilisation questions

Then rinse well before use. If not thoroughly rinsed your beer will taste like Dettol. After use same proceedure but...

I also have one of these, bought on AliExpress, and it does not work on mains water pressure. I bought the fixed version with holes instead of slots which works really well. Too much pressure?

Guinness reportedly mixes a small amount of soured Guinness into each fresh batch to give it a wee hint of twang (for lack of better flavor terminology). That's at least one reason why its taste in so hard to duplicate They may have done many years ago but not now. I was not aware that draught Guin...
