They appear to be stainless compression fittings found in plumbing

That's what I was thinking, but trying to figure out what the tubing material for the sight glass is and how to get a good seal.

The ones on either end of the sight glass holding it in place.

Equipment and Software / Sight Gauge Fittings
« on: July 08, 2013, 06:13:35 PM »
I'm looking at getting a short run of sight gauge glass to go from my O2 injection, to ball valve, to fermentor.  This is the sight glass I'm looking at.  What fittings do I need to buy to go from the O2 (which is stainless steel, 1/2" FPT) to the sight glass and back to a stainless ball valve?

Kegging and Bottling / Re: carbonating 2 beers on a single tap system
« on: July 08, 2013, 05:15:07 PM »
You can split the line or switch back and forth. When I was in this situation, I would charge the newer keg with higher psi so the CO2 would have some time to dissolve before I needed to hit it again. However, I got a 3-way manifold very soon after, as I was expanding my setup rapidly. Now I also have a dual-pressure CO2 regulator and a separate line coming in for that, so I can serve at one pressure and carb at another. Good luck.

Looks like it's going to be very Amarillo....y....  Go for it!

And is that bad or good?

How will it compare to an all Centennial IPA?  More citrus? More pine? More earthy??

Heck no it won't be bad!  I love Amarillo.  I tend to get a citrusy/orange flavor when I use a lot of Amarillo.  I have found that a bunch of it can give you perceived sweetness.  If that's what you want, then it's not a problem.  I just did an IPA with a bunch of Simcoe and Amarillo at the end of the boil, flameout, and dry hop.  It ended up being around 70 IBUs, but I personally thought it was too "sweet" for my taste.  If I do this beer again I'll bump up the bittering hops.

You may have a bad batch of propane too.

Center pickup dip tube, no false bottom, immersion chiller.  I transfer everything into the fermentor, hop trub and all.  However, if you are going to run a plate chiller, you'll need something like a hop spider or paint strainer bag or some other product of ingenuity to keep the trub from clogging your plates.
