Kegging and Bottling / Re: leaky keg top
« on: February 20, 2010, 08:38:30 AM »
I was told a great method to help you find the leak.

Take an old car tire innertube and cut it so that you
have about an 8 inch long cross section forming a rubber cylinder.

Stretch this rubber sleeve over the top of the Keg and pull
it down past the hand holds...clear down to the metal section.
Set the keg into a liquid catch basin of some type...
then fill the top with will be able to see your leak.

Slick Trick!

I got some once and had difficulty getting them to fit
into the mouth of the bottle...they were too large.
Otherwise they did do the job.

I had some beer a friend used the tabs to carb and
it was unappatizing to have white floaties in your beer
so that is an issue when you use those. That
was a known issue with a batch that was circulating
for a while. Not sure if they are all gone by now or not.

I had my best results using the bottling bucket
with dissolved sterile sweetened water stirred in FWIW.

Barry, there should be a beer here for ya on the way through...
let me know..

My one time experience with this was cured by RDWHAHB
and just giving the yeast more time to clean up

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: adding sugar...

Also, it has an impact on hop utilization, and I figure my hopping based on the wort gravity with the sugar in there.  

I tend to do the opposite here Denny and try to get more hop components into the unladen wert
before I laden the wert with additional sugar...

I have a sparkling mead that I used the plastic champagne closure with
the wire very well IMO.

I will set my additions out on a table with my timer and brew utensils.
Bittering hops in a bowl
Aroma hops in a Different bowl
Sugars one more bowl
Belgian spices if brewing that another bowl...
final additions like whirlfloc and nutrients in another little shotglass
Then I just go down the line up and usually don't forget anything

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: S23 Lager Yeast from Fermentis

The longer this sits in my garage in the Keg, the nicer it gets.
Tutti Fruti is not apparent at this point. Some Haze but
from day to day this too seems to be going bye bye...
Kind of a roller coaster ride with this yeast but in the end...not too shabby.
