I can't believe I clicked on this

Can forum administrators and/or Sasha rename this topic so that attracts people who are interested in this thread?

More craft beer novelty. I would hope no one sells a probiotic Brown Ale.  :)
Ooh the fecal transplant!


:(  I may or may not eat tomorrow.

Equipment and Software / Re: Pressurized transfers are amazing

I have been wanting to move in this direction. I have tried a non pressurized transfer to a purged keg with lid on  but liquid ends up leaking out of the keg disconnect due to lack of pressure to seal the connection.

I wonder if this method would work for Speidels and other similar plastic fermenters. Anyone have any experience with that? I assume at a low pressure it would be fine. Don't mean to go off topic...
You mean a closed transfer?

Sure. I like the sound of that.

Use sauergut, drink it on brewday.  So full of nutrients.

All Grain Brewing / low gravity batch sparge question
« Last post by 4swan on June 28, 2017, 04:15:48 PM »
I plan on making a Dark Mild and decided to try out batch sparging for the first time.  I'll be using 7.5# of malt and normally would use a total of 28 quarts of water when fly sparging.  My OG estimate for fly sparging would be 1.039.  I haven't decided on the volume of each batch sparge or if I'll add some of the water to the kettle.  When fly sparging everyone talks about stopping sparging when the pH rises to a certain point.  Are there any concerns with batch sparging a low gravity beer?

It probably seems like a trivial reason to own a conical, but no-worry pressurized transfers are definitely my favorite thing about my conical. I used to use a sterile siphon starter, but I still had endless worries about oxidation and about my racking cane's connection to the transfer hose...and when I used a carboy cap with a CO2 hose barb I was always worried that some clog would dramatically explode my carboy, sending huge glass shards flying in all directions. Anyway, I guess what I'm saying is that conicals are neat and my conical has been my favorite brewing purchase in recent memory in terms of piece of mind.


This is exactly the reason I want a conical.

If you want to make another incremental improvement: use a barbed swivel nut to connect your liquid tubing to a disconnect seated on your keg liquid out post and connect some tubing to a gas disconnect on the gas in post and run it into a container of sanitizer.

That way you can keep your keg lid completely closed and ditch the tin foil.
This.  I haven't hooked my gas post to a bucket of Starsan though. I just pop the press relief valve open.
