Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg Coming....Now What?

+1 I agree on the 20#'er. Then one can fill their 5# tanks from it! ;D

I've never swapped a tank. Any place I've been will fill it on the spot, usually. I won't leave the tank or exchange.

This begs the question: When has the sentence " I wish this wasn't wrapped in prociuotto" ever been uttered?
By a vegetarian
True. But they wish they could have it.

If no-one was looking I bet they'd eat it.

IMO this is the one piece of equipment that doesn't require typical homebrewer obsessiveness. A thorough rinsing to free the cooler of grain debri and stickiness is all that is needed. A brush up the valve if it suits you.

Dry open, preferably in the sun and it won't get smelly.

Dual regulator.

I used cobra taps for nearly eight years until landing a proper kegerator with a tower. Realize now that I wasn't really missing anything.

I spritz some starsan up the tap at the beginning and end of a session.

2 days in and my job titile has been changed from Brewery Ambassador to Field Educator.  I like that a lot better and it's much more descriptive of what I'll be doing.
Promotion. Nice job.

Only two days on and promoted?! You're slipping Denny. ;)

Must be a blast! Imagine talking beer to people that are actually interested...!

I would like to get two into each of my 7cu chest freezers. The recessed part is 24" long, so if the bases are flare down enough it may be possible to squeeze both in and leave space for the top of each fermenter lengthwise.

Already two 7.9g buckets fit in at the level of the compressor "hump" so if only one SS will fit then there will be wasted space for fermentation and would be better in a 4cu.

When I was on the site and reading the faqs the "exact-dimensions" were asked for. The reply was short, unthoughtful and disappointing and an already listed "20.5" H x 12.5" W"... which is a terrible answer.

That probably cost them some sales as the unit obviously has irregular dimensions. I'm not buying without knowing that they will fit.

The blanching technique works very well- far better than ICF vegetables from the store IMO. Seems like they hold up better in the freezer and also taste "fresher" once used.

I'd have been wild eyed about the Komodo cracking and raised some hell! >:(

The DiGiorno was an inexpensive test-run proof of concept. Coming back to me now... Use the BGE's plate-setter and then the grate on top. At that point it's baked really as it's indirect heat because of the plate-setter. But, sliding a raw and very floppy topped pizza onto a grate is asking for trouble. :'(

I bought an one-tap retail unit from my supervisor at my old job. It's meant for one half keg but I can fit two 1/6 bbl in it.

My opinion is do a custom job if you need more room- convert a chest freezer or buy a big upright fridge and have taps in the door...

Alton Brown grilled undressed pizza dough flipping once then adding toppings once flipped. IIRC... ;D



With a stone I ran into the same problem as pete describes. Burnt bottom undercooked top.

Once baked(?) a thawed frozen pizza (DiGiorno) at 375* on the grate in the BGE that turned out evenly cooked for some reason.

I want to build a wood fired oven!

Thanks!

How are you planning to rack out the bottom fermenter?

That's sweet.  Just for reference, how big are those fermenters?  Could you fit a carboy or betterbottle in those fridges?

The buckets are 20.5" H x 12.5" W  , looks like you have about 6" to the bottom of the freezer...if that helps?

Is that 12.5" at the lid on or at the base? Looks like the vessel flares.
