Kegging and Bottling / Oxidized DIPA -again...
« on: January 15, 2018, 01:33:08 AM »
My second kegged DIPA is suffering what appears to be oxidation.
Keg was purged pre-fill, no splashing on transfer.

Here's my question:
I have been 'slow' carbing (11-12 psi over a couple of weeks) my homebrew kegs, as they share a C02 tank with some commercial kegs.

Question:
Does force carbing do anything to eliminate the potential for oxidation?
I know I am clutching at straws, but just trying to see if there is any homebrewer research on this.

I am frustrated, and googling like a banshee.

Kegging and Bottling / Clogged dip tube?
« on: January 06, 2018, 05:42:11 PM »
I kegged (ball lock corny) a DIPA about 7 days ago, and have been carbing at 12 psi (as I'm sharing a CO2 tank with some 'live' kegs). That has worked well for me before, just takes a bit longer to carb.

I sampled it last night, and while where was some carbonation the pour itself (out of a flow control Perlick) is a trickle, and the sample was pretty cloudy. I speculating a clogged drip tube and/or clogged poppet on the liquid out. I had just cleaned my tap lines the day before kegging, so they should be all clean.

I have an empty keg so I can sanitize/swap out the components, but my questions are:
- does that appear to be indicative of clogged drip tube and/or clogged poppet on the liquid out?
- if I were to swap parts, I assume I need to disconnect the C02 and purge the keg first?
- does that raise oxidation concerns?

I have read some folks suggesting to connect the CO2 in to the liquid out and attempt to blow out any possible clogs? Is that a viable option? If so, would I just disconnect the CO2 in and connect to the liquid out? Purge before this step?

Thanks in advance!
