Very cool. Thank you. I'm not worried about pretty.

This is a lot cheaper. I'm sure you could modify it with a gauge and call it good.
I know I'd seen an article in BYO or Zymurgy where someone built one for cheap. Maybe in the last couple of months. When I have a few minutes I'll see if I can locate the article
Denny - I've heard similar things before, but I also read an article about a study on this that seemed to say it needed significant exposure for detectable levels of "skunking."
I'll look for that article. I can't recall where I read it, but it was interesting. IIRC they did three tiers of exposure and were pretty methodical.
EDIT: There's too darn many post on-line for me to find that article ever again. I guess if it tastes skunked to you, that's enough for me.
Yeah, it was very definitely skunked. A very hoppy IPA and very bright direct sunlight.
I don't think you want to boil it, just pasteurize it. I heat my mixed solution to about 160 and add it to the cold beer in the keg. It will clear in the time it takes for the hot liquid on top to reach the same temp as the cold beer and then settle to the bottom. I usually get a glass of gummy stuff and then nice, clear beer. I don't transfer to another keg unless I need to move it or take it to an event.
+1 This is pretty much what I do. Works great. Beer is clear after about 8oz of sludgy stuff. BUT it seems like a ot of that sludge clings to the side/bottom of the keg, so be aware that whenever you move or disturb the keg you'll loosen some of it up and get another cloudy glass the next time you pour one.
