Equipment and Software / Re: Side-by-side refrigerator
« on: January 06, 2012, 10:44:47 AM »
I cut the interior wall out of mine and now have a huge, wide open space. Of course, I can only keep it at one temp, instead of two but it works great for fermenting. Might not be the solution you're looking for but I love it as a fermentation chamber.

So no worries about electronics or chiller lines in the wall between the spaces?

Equipment and Software / Side-by-side refrigerator
« on: January 05, 2012, 10:41:20 PM »
I've got a side-by-side fridge (freezer/fridge) that I've converted to be a serving/lagering fridge.
It can fit 4 cornies on the fridge side and I've got 4 corresponding taps mounted on the door.

The question is, what can I do to take advantage of the freezer side?
It seems like if the fridge side is around 45F, then the freezer side is about 22F. There are analog dials for making each side colder/warmer but I'm using a digital controller so those essentially get overridden.

Ideally, I'd like to use the freezer side for lagering. So that means being able to keep the freezer side in the 32-50F range. If I take it that high right now, the fridge side will get too warm.

« on: August 31, 2010, 01:19:52 PM »
I'd like to announce an Oktoberfest event being put on by some nice
folks in the University City area. They're also going to host a
Category 10-only (American Ale) BJCP-sanctioned homebrew contest.

The party is October 2nd from 2pm-6pm.

Details here:

It's a good time and beer from Stone, Lost Abbey and others will be flowing.

Kegging and Bottling / ok to store kegs with Starsan?
« on: August 07, 2010, 11:05:01 AM »
I'm relatively new to kegging and my first two Cornies are empty. 8^(
I cleaned the kegs, lines and faucets with PBW first and then flushed them with Starsan.

My question is, I ran all of the Starsan through the faucets until they were foaming and spitting. Is it ok to leave it like this for an extended period? I probably won't be able to brew for a little while so they'll sit empty. Any harm to leave this acidic solution on the keg's rubber gaskets and the faucet's inner workings?
