On Serving: A Look at Total Oxygen Ingress
« on: February 05, 2018, 04:11:37 PM »
This is the last post in a series that we have put out which targets cold-side oxygen ingress. We had previously discussed CO2 purity, purging and transferring, and bottle cap ingress, and now we finish it up with a post that takes all that into consideration as well as factoring in vessel ingress through gaskets and serving/gas lines in oder to show the "sum of all parts" numbers for traditional/standard homebrew practices and our recommended methods.

Really good information, guys.  Some pretty simple-to-implement suggestions, along with product suggestions. 

Because of a simple serving line leak recently (slightly loose QDC at the flare fitting, resulting in a loss of 5 gallons in my lagering chest freezer - UGH!), I have gone to disconnection of line out and turned off CO2/disconnect CO2 as part of my routine.
