Kegging and Bottling / Re: Requirement to clean/sanitize new tap

Running some star san through it would be fine.

Even worse if you never get it to seal at all.

If I were looking to buy a bottle tree, I'd probably get this instead. I have a red bottle tree and it takes up space and only holds 45 bottles. An inconvenient number since a 5 gallon batch is ~52 12oz bottles.
Otherwise, a spray with starsan will sanitize a clean hard surface, but spraying inside a bottle is hard. The submursible spray pumps are great for this. It's made to go on a bottle try, but I just put it in the sink.

Regulators are pretty standard shapes and every tank needs one, so I can't imagine a tank would be sold that couldn't work with one.

Hopefully the price of new ball locks will fall as people start to buy more. I've already seen them sold for ~$90 in multi-packs. Given the hastle of some used kegs, I'd pay a premium for new. I think if it dropped to $75 or so it would be great.

I call anyone who disagrees with me a Nazi fascist totalitarian racist infidel and just leave it at that. When it comes to religion and politics there's really no point in arguing.

I'll have to try that

I don't even know what the argument is about anymore, but that's fine. I paid for 10 minutes.

So if you say "I'm making a Belgium Ale" I may correct you and tease you a little but if I uase a ;) it makes in all ok. :)

You misspelled "use" :))

I've gotten myself in trouble for correcting people, but it's never happened on Facebook. I don't have much sympathy though. You want to post dumb stuff without commentary? Buy a diary.

The deal is Coke is still getting rid of pin locks, so they are more available. Quality doesn't matter, when is the last time you saw a homebrewer selling their ball lock kegs?

I find the base too narrow, too unstable for operating under the influence.

Show me a brewery selling 12ouncers for a better deal than bombers, then you have an article.

Uhhh ... Just about every brewery is selling 12 oz at a better deal than 22 oz. I think you got that backwards.

My chest freezer is now 9 years old, it runs in my garage which routinely hit 110F in the summer and low 20's in the winter.  I didn't insulate the collar, and I even sheathed it in oak plywood, something I since learned is very bad.  I keep my temp probe in a sealed, dry, empty water bottle.
Why is that bad?
Freezers apparently dissipate heat through the outside walls. The plywood holds heat in.
Oh, gotcha. I thought you just sheathed the collar in plywood.

FWIW, I've always used dish soap and a carboy brush. So its not necessary, but scrubbing is more work.

Very cool! Thanks for sharing that.

Lactobacillus is not that resilient a bug, I'm sure you can get them clean.  I'd drop them in very hot water (>160F) for half an hour and then put them in Star San.
If you're not aware - there was another thread here saying hot water deactivates StarSan. Not sure if you meant hot water then Star San or mixed with.
