General Homebrew Discussion / Welder in Denver
« on: August 02, 2010, 01:13:24 PM »
Hello All,

I have tried several time to get this bulkhead to seal on my keggle and it just won't do it. So, next move is to find a welder.

Anybody in the Denver Metro area have someone who will do it at a resonable price?

from what I have read I can't imagine it would take more then 15-20 mins to do the weld.

Thanks for the assistance.

Brian

+2 on Dry Dock

If you wanted to head Downtown there is Great Divide Brewery and Wynkoop

For the best beer selection in Denver visit Falling Rock Tap Room.
(if you go let me know and I could meet you for one or six)

Classifieds / WTB: Ball Lock Corney Kegs
« on: February 19, 2010, 09:40:00 AM »
Hello all,

I am working on getting the last of my kegging stuff together and am looking for a couple kegs in the Denver metro area to kick it off. Hopefully in time to transfer a couple batches next weekend. The LHBS or shipping is a little to high for my budget. Any help is appreciated.

I used the WLP004 Irish Ale from White Labs. I was planning on kegging around Feb 28th or so. give a couple weeks to carb and condition.

Oh really, I thought the carbonation took longer. I know it is faster then bottling but thought I had read it was a few days at least. Time to do more research.

Thanks for the quick response.

I have a couple questions:

1. at what temp do you let the fermentor sit to allow the yeast to clean up?

2. This also my first kegging and I want it to be ready to drink by March 13th for a party. When is the latest I can wait to transfer it to the keg and have it carbonate and condition properly?

Yeast and Fermentation / Crazy temp jump in fermentor
« on: February 08, 2010, 10:54:43 AM »
Hello all,

I am fairly new brewer and brewed my first all grain batch on Saturday. It's an Irish Red Ale following the Brewing Classic Styles recipe.  ;D

Pretty much hit all the numbers right except the OG with ended up high at 1.070 (too long of a bowl). After pitching my 1L starter at 64F and 12 hours I had good sign of fermentation and stabilized temp of 66F. Due to our house being pretty cold and the temp swings, I wrapped the carboy in a jacket. I now know the insulation will cause the temp to rise significantly when the fermentation is really ramped up. This morning the temperature was 76F (i have removed the insulation and hopefully when I get home it has lowered).

My question is what kind of off flavors might I expect from being 8 hours or so over the ideal temperature?

Is there risk of ruining the batch due to the spike?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Brian
