Right!! I have say I'm only putting a corni keg..with NO co2 attachments..just the corni with beer til it's cool to serve...then once I've got the corni out attach the co2...
If I had a upright fridge it would be used...
Forget the freezer! Um not trying to make kegerfreezer or what ever the bloody this called...sorry again!
Hope you can understand now..the only chilling I have at the mo is the little chest freezer!
Of ta bed...midnight and I'm hoping in the light of day my babbling can make sence to all...
Once again sorry

This was as was hoping a few years ago going to be Made into a kegirator!!
http://www.thehomebrewforum.co.uk/sh...ad.php?t=39933
Not now! Just for chilling the corni's...I'm not leaving it!! Before u think lol I'll time it right!!
Or
The best thing I could do...with my tiny brain..to avoid any safely with and my brain ain't working!!!
Leave the corni in the outhouse toilet...close the (even open the widow!) and see if the temp get right to pore...
That'll be the best way!!! Don't u think? Without this messing on..
Why didn't I think about before!....
Thinking 6-9c for lager..

thats pretty much how i do it..


beers gain condition when cold and loose it in the warm, and a pre session vent to normalise keg pressure to that set on the regulator. And come summer a shelf chiller is required.
the co2 pressure needs a tweak with temp changes too but there is no escaping the loss and gain of condition down to the change in ambient temp..

Any help would be appreciated, & as I'm taking my time and rushing or trying to 20 jobs at once I'll apreciated one step at a time...coz if not I'll get confused etc..

The keg lid needs a couple of psi to fully seal. I usually give it 10.

1 is your beer line and 2 is your gas line.

3 is the manometer which tells you the pressure inside the keg (if it's connected).

4 is the shank, which screws onto the back of 11, your faucet. 7 screws onto the back of the shank. 10 is the tap handle and 5 is the collar (you'll only really need this if you intend on mounting the faucet/shank through a fridge or freezer door)

One each of 6 screw onto the thread on 8 (gas disconnect - this goes onto the post marked In on the corny) and 9 (liquid disconnect, this goes onto the post marked out on the corny).

Your beer line (1) will connect 7 and 9, your gas line (2) will connect your regulator (3 - via the grey push fit at the bottom) with 8.

Not sure on 12, could you take a photo of just that part?

12 looks like the seals/washer for the regulator to gas bottle connection
