Re: Corny Keg and Cooler Setup - Pints of Foam!

Woohooo pouring perfect pints now!!! So the Stella tap does indeed have a 3/16" push fitting inside it, two screws to open the tap itself up and the fitting is basically on the back of the tap. Ripped out the old 1m or so of 3/16" tubing and put in about 5m of 3/16" tubing. This has slowed things do...

Re: What are the pro's and cons of a Chiller?

I wouldn't say there is any extra wastage involved really... Longer pipe runs I suppose maybe, but a negligible difference.

Re: What are the pro's and cons of a Chiller?

Pros: Running costs should be lower as you're not trying to cool the whole keg (assuming the alternative you were thinking of wasn't drinking warm beer!). Quicker and easier set up than most alternatives also. Perfectly feasible to leave it switched off most of the time and then go and switch it on ...

Re: Corny Keg and Cooler Setup - Pints of Foam!

Before I make a mess taking the python apart, can anyone please tell me how the 3/16 line typically terminates in the tap, is there usually a JG fitting right on the tap itself? I didn't purchase a 3/16-3/16 joiner fitting so hoping I can run a completely new line right up to the tap rather than ext...

Re: Corny Keg and Cooler Setup - Pints of Foam!

Thanks all. I see Brew UK also sell the line in the Cornelius section. Transport is going to be the biggest cost so I'll just order a load of both sizes. Happy days.

Re: Corny Keg and Cooler Setup - Pints of Foam!

Thanks for the replies guys. I've had a look at the carbonation chart and it makes sense however I can't find any formula for the pressure drop along the pipe in order to get the 1-2 psi at the tap. Could you point me in the right direction please? The tube to the tap on the other side of the cooler...

Corny Keg and Cooler Setup - Pints of Foam!

Evening all. I think this is my first post here in spite of having been registered for five years! Getting back into home brewing after several years working abroad and living out of a suitcase...! I have some corny kegs (19L I think), a good Norgen gas regulator, a Corny flash cooler and a proper p...
