I homebrew barefoot in the summer, but I guess if I dropped something on my toe I'd start wearing flip flops.

Okay let's try this again. my last reply got disappeared.Does the other end of that cane have a valve on it - like a bottling wand? or is it just a straight tube. I always assumed a valve would cause foaming, but I haven't tried this yet.
The link that above is more or less what I do with the addition of a short piece of tube that goes over both the end of the picnic tap and the bottling cane to prevent them from separating while the cane is inside a pressurized bottle.
Major, how about a Safety category on the forum? A place to post safety related questions, tips, photos, etc.Good place to generate ideas for safety articles too. And the articles can reference stories posted on the forum, driving new users to the forum - another AHA goal. It's win/win.
My first thought was maybe the kid didn't have a clean record before this incident...To be honest, kind of my first thought too. I was thinking - yeah sure Mom, you're kids completely innocent. Hard to tell what the situation really is from a news story, even though we're all experts now after reading it on the internet.
Funny protest from the students could include all of them bringing a can of beer into school and giving it to their teacher first hour. Whole school to the alternative school for 60 days.Sadly, this would require somebody to give/sell them beer illegally. That person would probably go to jail.
I have legged a couple different beers and I have a friend that would like a six pack to take back. Can I bottle my keg beer? I am thinking it is similar to a growler, however, if you bottle and cap it would it keep longer before going flat or developing off flavors like a growler fill does sometimesKeeping carbonation is one thing, but what really reduces growler beer life is that growlers and the taps that fill them are rarely sanitized. So there's no reason you can't transfer to a bottle and have it keep for a long time. Just figure out a way (posts above are good) to keep CO2 in solution, minimize oxygen exposure, and keep everything sanitized.
Makes sense. Quick chill = no burnt coffee flavor.Hmm, that's interesting.
Also, how do you chill? I would think that throwing beans in at flameout would be fine if you can cool quickly. Not so good if the wort will be hot for an extended time.
