I use plastic gaskets on metal/metal connections too. A little keg lube also helps seal those connections.

So here we are over a year later and nothing has changed.

My guess on how the actual conversation went was, "Just leave it alone.  Soon they wiil accept the staus quo as the new normal and learn to live with it."

GMan: We have top men working on it...
Indy: Who?
Gman: Top ... men ...

The other thing is that kegs of beer are legal. Many people wouldn't know the difference between yours and commercial kegs

I wondered the same while driving 20 kegs to nhc.

I think the strict answer might be no, but the practical answer is you're not likely to get in trouble unless you do something else to get your car searched.

You might be able to trim the bottom of the door a half inch for ventilation

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Rust inside kegs

I've got kids.  But I guess their arms aren't that long.



My arms fit inside a keg. Worked well for those used kegs I just acquired. Some had 1-2 year old whole hop bags still in them. YIKES.

I do remember an article, in Zymurgy I'm pretty sure, from years ago for an ale made with Flor Sherry and oak aged. They calculated the volume/surface ratio of a large barrel, scaled down to 5 gallons, and found that a wooden blug in the top of a carboy should provide the same O2 permeability.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Hydrogen peroxide as a cleaner?

the bottled peroxide is only like 3-5 % peroxide, I don't think you would want to dilute it. I used to gargle with that stuff so it's not very strong. you could probably use it as a cleaner as you suggest but I don't think it would be cheaper. put together a group buy and get 5 lbs of PBW it'll cost pennies to clean all your equipment each time.
I suspected that if it was cheaper and effective that it would already be all over the internet.

I always have a problem with oxyclean leaving a residue. I have tried using weaker and weaker solutions. I never have this problem with PBW.
Really, I haven't noticed that. I'm using the Oxyclean Free (no scents, etc.) Maybe its reacting with the water? Or it's that sodium metasilicate doing something in PBW.

FYI if you use lock nuts for the burner mounting bolts, the plastic piece inside will melt.   :o  I'd suggest spring nuts stripped of the spring, which is probably what you did Justin.
I would have used lock washers, what are spring nuts?

soap, water and oxyclean is all I ever use to clean.
I use oxyclean and love it.

Before I had a tiered stand, I would drain my mash tun into buckets and pour them into the kettle to break it into smaller volumes.
i know some that do that. I am a little more lazy. ;)
Definately not a great solution.
