Kegging and Bottling / Problems serving beer!! Help needed!
« on: April 18, 2013, 06:07:35 PM »
Hey everyone. I'm honestly baffled I can't figure this out on my own but here it goes. This is a nitro problem. I kegged my special bitter and hit it with 4psi just to give it around 1 volume of co2. After that I connected my beer gas(75% nitro, 25% co2) and hit it with 25psi. After a couple weeks I go to pour a pint and it comes blasting out. Waaaaay too fast. I have no guesses after playing around with it the last week. Any help would be great.

Stout faucet has all pieces in it too btw.

Need some help. I'm buying a stout faucet and I would prefer stainless as my whole system top to bottom is stainless. I'm a bit overwhelmed with all the choices...anyone have any suggestions...there is one for 33$ on but its chrome plated.

Micromatic sells a stainless but it has a plastic spout...any suggestions?

« on: November 27, 2012, 01:34:41 PM »
Any ideas on what a good first lager would be? Maybe thinking helles or bock or maybe Oktoberfest.

Any tips would be highly appreciated. I also should add I have a temperature controlled vessel.

Kegging and Bottling / Out of ideas.

So I just got a new tap rite regulator hooked it up tested for leaks. Nothing at all. Problem is this...if I out my ear up really close to the regulator I can hear the tank running gas still. Even minutes later.  Sounds like a tiny leak but I'm positive its not. Anyone ever heard of this before?

All Grain Brewing / Double decoction
« on: November 05, 2012, 10:50:22 PM »
Did a Bavarian heff this weekend with wyeast 3638. Holy cow this yeast is a madman.

Did a double decoction with around 78% efficiency.  This yeast within an hr was already pretty active and within 24 hrs the krausen is easily a foot high...I have 6.5 and 7 gallon carboys and I had to attach a blowoff tube today. I hit it with 60 seconds of pure o2 and made a healthy starter too. Started at 66 and it's jumped a few degrees but im hoping for a nice banana, clove and spice flavor!! Anyways just thought I'd update!

You can't see the leak but it seeps right at the base of the silver washer.

The inside looks good

All Grain Brewing / Last three batches terrible
« on: September 30, 2012, 12:37:30 PM »
Been brewing for a couple years now,  all grain. Last three batches have had this off flavor I can't really explain. Its almost like an alcoholic flavor but also taste like metal. Beer is fermenting in a fermentation chamber I control all the temps etc....esb, Belgian pale, and rye saison...they all have the same off flavor. Im about to give up I have no idea whats causing this flavor. Any suggestions?
