Thanks for the help, I figured that I was on the right track , I am going to disconnect the over carb kegs ,add try the wait and see,,,,,,method
Didn't realize what I did till it happens LOL go figure
New to this site.
I use BeerSmith.
I think the device that I am looking for bleeds off like a valve really not a gauge spindling valve maybe, when a keg is over carb it releases the excesses co2 like a bleed off valve, I'll do some more looking around
I think the next time I will set the regulator at 10 psi and leave it alone , right lol
If I find it I will let you know

Looks cool ,,any more updates

I have 2 of the 4 kegs that keep foaming up
Here are the beers
Flanders porter,gum ball head , Octoberfest lager, and rye IPA
The Octoberfest and rye IPA keep pressuring up ,
Here is what I did really petty normal kegging (  I thought ) all these beer in one day.
About a 8 days ago
Kegged let set a 30 psi for 2 days , shook each one for 20 seconds ,reset psi at 10 psi walk away
Then I check the beer yesterday the rye IPA is so foamy and Octoberfest is as well ,
Anyway I was thinking that I might take the air line and unplug it still it de- presureizies it self

basically want to degas the beer and make it flat and recarb
Thanks John
Do they make a device to use to put on keg to keg it from over carbing ?

Gee What a resource.....

I re-pitched some yeast in it yeasterday and it is fermingting today, that said with the beer setling in the carboy for a week later and all the contents settling to the bottom ,what effect would this have on the wort. first yeast didnt take and repitched 9 days later ?

thank's I'll do that

I had the packit in the freezer and took it out and made a slurry for 1/2 cup from cooled boiling water to sterle water. went off the directions never had a problem before.
I am trying to get all the conponts together to build a system for all grain
want to buy 2 x 2 ss square wall tubing got to check on pricing and I have one 15.5 gal keg that about it as far has all grain
been getting my kegerator together building the collar this next couple of days ,I have 5 corney keggs and a 20 lb co2 cyclinder and got all that under control.
and working now i am out of HB and got one in the seconatry and this one the is stuck I gress
does this thing have spell checker ? 
What are these other things do I need to worry about ?

Cant find the packit it came with but it was yellow and nottingham seems to be what it was called
has far as number or type it came with the kit
I was going to go get some today but there closed on mondays
will any yeast work like yeast from the store ?

I seen these whole house filters they sell and I have a new one on the self I havn't used yet and was just wondering / I think it is a 5 micon
and way they say it gets you away from the secondary , true or not true ?
what do you think about the beer that didnt fernent I think it was nottingham
I will go look and se if I still have the packit it came with

Has a newbie I am on my 6th  kit beer and 1 wine.
For some reason I didnt get any fermation at all on this batch.
I took a reading today and it is only .002 point away from my OG is 1.084 and the reading today is 1.082 this is for a Beligm Triple ..I brew it on 3-21-10 last ssunday and been working 12 hours and notice the air lock cap didn't raise and the Home brew place is closed today and going to repitch tommorrow.
Do I look to see what yeast is in the same kit if they have one or just buy any yeast and I think everything is ok has far as the wort is dont see any thing growing and I gave it a good hard couple of shakes to wake it up If you will
Whats  one to do ?
I put the yeast in the freeze when I bought it because it was going to be a couple of weeks before I could get to it and I dont think I am going to do that again.

What about pitch it straight into the fermenter or make slurry up
Should I wait a cople more days
I have another beer on the 2nd  dairy its a Calf. style pale and please explain how to filter or should I filter at all ?

Kegging and Bottling / Kegged 2 styles
« on: March 10, 2010, 02:15:20 AM »
First time kegging and I burped 3x @ 5psi then used 30 psi charged ,rolled keg over knee for 5 minutes ,purged and rechared for another 5 ,did this 3 times, beer was foamed up like crazy ,,well got up at 500 am and had a brain fart and though that ,,,,
I took the regulator gas line off and put in a sanditised Grawler and roll the kegs upright 4 differant times and when I shook each keg ,the CO2 roard out of the tube like crazy did this 4 times and then hooked everything back up and everything seemed Ok
Has anyone done this ?
It was my Birthday and got a later start at co2 ing my corney's
Just curious ?

It's pretty easy if you use the flare (screw on) QDs.  I just unscrew one form the CO2 line and stick the end of the line in the bottle.  Give it a couple second shot of CO2 and you're set.
Hi New to forums
What is Flare (screw on) QD
QD is Quick Disconnect
flare is what ?
Thanks John
