If I am reading you correctly, you have a primary regulator on the CO2 cylinder feeding to a taprite dual product secondary.  If this is the case, you may dispense or carb two kegs with independent pressures.  You can also split each secondary with a manifold and feed to additional kegs but they will be carbed at the same pressure.

I had the same problem.  I gently heated the cooler exterior plastic and pushed the ball valve handle in.  It sized perfectly and has worked for years.

I think that you will have more fun and your mind will be eased the sooner you can get to a fermentation chamber that you can control the temperature. Brew and forget.

I've used this yeast with excellent luck. But I let it ferment for a solid month. I started out about 44° and then later ramp up to 51 over a course of the week and then maintain it at 51 for the rest of the time. No need for the rest. It's way cleans itself up nicely.

Beer Recipes / Re: Messing with hops
« on: April 25, 2014, 11:16:22 AM »
Mort, I have been enjoying some very nice IPA's this winter using Great Western 2 row and their Munich.  I have been simply changing up the hops and enjoying them.  My procedure has been using the higher alpha hop as the bittering hop, usually 2 to 3 ounces, or more, depending the alpha acid, as FWH.  Then, heavily load up at 1 minute and again at 0, or just everything at 0.  Oftentimes using the bittering hop and only one other.  Then doing the usual whirlpool for 45 minutes or so.  Also, a robust dry hop using the same 1 and 0 minute hop combo.  My water profile is 300 plus sulfate and careful pH control.  Nice color and mash low to dry it out more and it is pure heaven.

Well, sorry everyone!  I must admit, I did Photoshop Miley out of there.  But, I am still calling it Wreckin' Ball IPA!

I always noticed a haze, so to speak, on the inside of my kegs when letting Oxiclean stand in them too long.  I can't say there was taste or flavor problem.  I just didn't like it.  So, when cleaning my kegs with it still, I never let it sit for any appreciable time.
