Kegging and Bottling / Help Me Root a CO2 Leak
« on: January 29, 2015, 02:20:55 PM »
Need some help rooting the source of a CO2 leak.

Taprite T742 dual gauge regulator > connected to three way manifold (with check valves).

• With the gas line check valve closed, line charged, and the tank off – the beverage side reads 10 PSI for approximately 3 days

• With the keg gas lines disconnected, line charged, check valves open, and the tank off – the beverage side reads 10 PSI for approximately 3 days
• With the keg gas lines disconnected, line charged, check valves closed, and the tank off – the beverage side reads 10 PSI for approximately 3 days

• With the keg gas lines connected, line charged, check valves open, and the tank off – the beverage side reads 10 PSI for < 10 hours
• With the keg gas lines connected, line charged, check valves closed, and the tank off – the beverage side reads 10 PSI for < 10 hours

I have rotated through the three kegs, using a different gas line each time. With the line charged and tank off, the beverage side gauge reads 10 PSI for < 10 hours. Regardless if I use line 1, 2, or 3, attached to any of the kegs, the beverage side gauge will zero out after a few hours.

The loss of pressure appears to be keg independent. As I have rotated the lines to each keg and pressure still drops. This leads me to believe the equipment up to the gas-in post is sound and not leaking. Everything up to the keg has been water tested (not the tank) and no leaks found. I lube the gas posts and lid rings.

I have soap tested each keg numerous times, the lid ring, pressure relief, and gas post – no leaks. I have not tested the liquid side as the faucets aren’t leaking and there is no beer pooling at the bottom of the fridge nor is there any sign of beer running down the side of the keg.

I cannot root the source of the leak.

Any ideas?

I was leaning towards the Pliny base w/Arrogant Bastard hopping + dry hop.

Does the base recipe look sound? It works well with Pliny.

All Grain Brewing / Chinook Only Pliny-Esque Recipe?
« on: January 26, 2015, 10:26:57 PM »
I am considering a Chinook only Pliny-esque recipe.

13 # 2-row, 1 # Carapils, 6 oz. Crystal 60, and 1 # Corn Sugar.

2 oz. Chinook @ 90 min
1 oz. Chinook @ 45 min
1 oz. Chinook @ 30 min
2 oz. Chinook @ flameout
1.5 oz. Chinook 14 day dry hop
1.5 oz. Chinook 7 dry hop
* may add more dry hop ...

Fermented with WLP001.

Expecting at least 1.075 OG and < 1.013 FG.

The above is an estimate based on More Beer's Pliny the Elder recipe. Mot quite the same hop charge but my Chinook is 14% AA.

Looking for honest feedback on what this might taste like. I suspect it may be a super charged Arrogant Bastard like taste with all of the Chinook.

Your thoughts?

I was in the same situation but for Southern California this past weekend.

Check the "where to get our beers" map, call around, and map the places near you.

I was able to find Pliny on tap @ two places. Damned good stuff on tap.

After brewing Pliny @ home, I wanted to compare mine to the real deal.

I dumped the list from RR and added phone numbers for the San Diego area. I'll call around tomorrow in hopes of finding it on tap and in the bottle.

I'm giddy.

We're staying in Carlsbad/Oceanside and will go to San Diego (the city) at some point too.

I will be in San Diego this weekend and would like to get my hands on a Pliny draft and a few bottles of Pliny if possible. It doesn't appear that BevMo carries Russian River.

Can someone point me in the right direction to find Pliny this weekend?

I am sold on leaving it in the keg. The keg is sitting @ 70F for a few more days then off to the kegorator.
