Fruit purees add both sugars and volume and often the end result is similar or lower gravity.

Not sure you read that right.Quote from: 47 PA 4-491It shall be unlawful--
(2) For any person, except a manufacturer or the board or the holder of a sacramental wine license or of an importer's license, to possess or transport any liquor or alcohol within this Commonwealth which was not lawfully acquired prior to January first, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-four, or has not been purchased from a Pennsylvania Liquor Store or a licensed limited winery in Pennsylvania, except in accordance with section 488 or the board's regulations.
Emphasis mine. Sounds legal to me.
The temp of the tank affects the high pressure reading because a fixed quantity and volume of gas at a lower temperature has lower pressure. This does not affect the low pressure gauge because the quantity of gas on the low pressure side is not fixed. The regulator will let gas through until it reaches 10psi (or whatever). No temperature adjustment is needed.It is the temperature of the beer that matters, not the temperature of the tank.
Right, but the temp of the tank affects the reading on the gauge. I'm just trying to determine how much, if any, I need to adjust.
Batch-sparger here!Hmm, I've never measured the temperature after adding sparge water.
I've found that it usually takes boiling water when performing a mashout to see an effective rise in overall mash temp. Dumping in a few gallons at 170 only results in a few degrees rise.
I did a batch with Vintners Apricot Puree, a single 49 oz. can for a 5 gallon batch added to secondary. The beer is great but just not what I'm trying reproduce. The apricot flavor is much more subtle and not as pronounced as what I'm looking for. I've been looking for frozen apricots in the store with no luck, I may try to use canned apricots and see how that works out. I may have to hijack a delivery truck to Otto's to get a supply of what ever they are using.Does the puree taste good? It's probably a matter of quantity - 49 oz is 3 lbs. That is not much fruit for a 5gallon batch. I would try with two or three cans to get noticable apricot flavor.
I wonder if you could swap out for a straight dip tube. I have a few cornies with straight dip tubes. Maybe just a simple swap.
Ask for a picture of the inside before you buy - I have some that look really similar on the outside. The inside is fine except the bottom has a punt like a champagne bottle but the diptube goes to the center, so there is still a cup or so of liquid left in the bottom after the keg kicks. It's not necessarily a problem, just something to be aware of.I guess that might keep your beer clearer though, especially if you move it around. Yeast would settle away from the dip tube.
Amazing! Years on this forum and I never noticed that.Pretty annoying. When I look at the main page, 12 topics indicate unread threads (by the icons on the left) but the Unread list contains zero threads to read.
What do you get when, at that "no unread topics" screen, you click on "Click here to try all unread topics"?
