If your conical can handle of few psi, pumping a bit of CO2 into it will probably help.

-After I drill a hole do I just feed my gas line through the hole?
-What do you guys do besides putting the tubing through the hole (to make sure it's airtight)?
maybe this would be a better route and only $69. use steam under pressure so no oxygen introduced, and heat the mash through steam entering the mash tun outlet valve and through my manifold into the mash bed. at 210-212F shouldn't take long to raise 15F.
I am looking to get mostly color from a dark roasted grain like carafa special III but would also like a bit of flavor to transfer to the final beer. When adding during the sparge I assume some flavor be transferred?
So tomorrow afternoon I will connect the CO2 tank to the in valve, let it run for 5 or 10 sec, turn off the regulator (at both the shutoff valve and red knob?)
set the regulator to 5 psi, open the shutoff valve, fill the keg's headspace with CO2, then reset the regulator to somewhere between 6.6 and 7.7 psi and listen for the CO2 to stop flowing.
I had assumed it stayed connected the whole time.
For lagers I use 1L oxygenated starter with no stirplate, sat in my fermentation chest at lager fermentation temp, and pitch the whole thing at 12 hrs. Same as ales, but cooler and 4 hrs longer wait.
By the way, where can a fella buy some chit malt? I see this Brew Brothers place has it, but are there any other places? A web search isn't turning up a whole lot of results...
I get mine from Brew Brothers. Not a lot of sources for homebrewers.
