i crash in the fermentor for a few days at 30F also then transfer to keg. +1 for not crashing in a better bottle or any other pliable fermentor it will implode. Well it did on me once never again.

+1Alright so the wife surprised me and looks like we are buying a pre built one from AIH anyone have tips or advice when using it at an indoor event.
1. test it out at home in advance of the event... it will save you time and major disaster of something going wrong when setting up for the event.
2. they are notorious for lots of foamy pours, try to get the pressure right on your tank, around 15-18 psi should help keep the foam down if still foamy increase pressure slowly.
3. hook up all the beer etc... and put the ice in LAST! also only put in enough ice to chill the beer you don't want a ton of ice sitting on the coils and the beer resting in the coils or plate and getting "super chilled" which will cause even more foam and maybe even freeze the line.
4. clean it immediately after using it using beer line cleaner and sanitizer... otherwise you're looking at a germ fest!
You can go to 2+ qts/lb for malts with high enzymes.+1
Often a simple infusion will be fine in the 1.25 to 1.5 qt/lb.
