Ha. No need to rub it in! I'm scheduled to start tomorrow as it has been way too hot to get going earlier. The water has been prepped in my vessels for a week or more - can't think that should hurt though?

Putting the chiller outside is ideal. But weather-proofed, not in an enclosed "waterproof house". Problems arise if air can't freely circulate around the chiller.

Wish I had searched "KJ", I might not have swallowed my dentures. But "KJ" was a typo, you know exactly what I discovered looking up "KY Jelly".

Re: Another question about my bar setup with Maxi 310

The chiller coils are going to be about 3/8" bore, so there is not much point choking the bore down twice; I'd use 3/8" tubing from keg to cooler then 3/16" from cooler to tap (and use 3/8" or thereabouts, bore between the product coils if joining them). Shorten the length of 3/16" tubing. If you ca...

Re: Corny Regulator Setting Advice

Hi try a flow restrictor made for beer lines about £8-£10 off Ebay. I use these on all my lines and you just twist the collar on the restrictor to suit the flow works well for me even if too much co2 in the corny so you do not have to be perfect on your line settings but somewhere near. Pete They a...

Re: leaking cornie

As we're on a roll of suggestions ... Don't use washing-up liquid and water to test for leaks around a Cornie lid. If there is a leak and the lid is re-seated, the design of the lid means washing-up liquid ends up in the beer. Kills any head the beer might have produced, but don't like the idea anyw...

Re: Corny Regulator Setting Advice

I bought expensive flow control taps to try and avoid foaming but still have a right job getting a decent pour. Pressure is set to around 5psi (though often creeps up to 10psi with the reg I'm using). Fridge is around 5c ambient with a fan to circulate air over the beer line. Even with the flow con...

Re: Corny Regulator Setting Advice

The "kegerator" will help. Chilling the beer is the best way of combating foam. But you must prefer cold beer (I don't!). Dropping the pressure to serve may result in foam too, unless you let the pressure stabilise over a day or so and then the lower pressure will result in less foam (but it may nee...

Re: leaking cornie

Lubricating the seal will help as it will help the seal conform to the minor surface irregularities. Lube doesn't block the leaks, don't try to use it that way. Soft O-rings is a minefield: the ordinary "nitrile" ring have a hardness of about 70 (medium soft) whereas silicon O-rings are often recomm...

Re: Carbonating in PET

Headspace? I guess there is a lower proportion of headspace to beer in the PET bottles than the mini-keg. More headspace, more CO2 available to dissolve (assuming force carbonating). If this is right, don't fill the PET bottles so high. Natural conditioning (with the yeast in the beer) has no such c...

Re: Silicone tubing for CO2

... Yep, '16 bar' is printed on the tubing. It may have been a manufacturing flaw? I wasn't pushing much pressure through it. I'm not sure this type of tubing is designed for CO2. It might be too permeable for CO2? Any localised release, even under low pressure, might cause things to heat up too mu...

Re: Dead Pony Club

Well done PeeBee. I must admit the one thing Brewdog don't give you is the timing and temperature for the dry hopping. I was thinking of doing it for a 4-5 day secondary ferment. All being well it's on for Monday. Damn, that'll put me behind. I've not got the water prepped yet and the electricity i...

Re: Silicone tubing for CO2

I wouldn't recommend 3/16 beer line for CO2. This is what can happen: ... Crikey! I tried to find the pressure rating of MDPE tubing but couldn't come up with it - perhaps someone will? But it is high, very high. What the hell were you doing! I'd be happy the pipe burst, because the next thing to g...
