    Angram CQ beer engine fittings

    I may be wrong, as I have never tried, but I don't think a JG push fit would be compatible with a barb. Note also, I am assuming that the 1/2" connection on your demand valve is indeed barbed. As far as I know, a stem and a barb are different things.

    How will you attach the 1/2" stem to the 1/2" barb on the demand valve?

    Brewing a pseudo lager!

    The lager I mentioned above was my first experience with kveik. I used the dried Lutra and was pretty impressed. I think I did mine at 30c from memory. I left it in the FV for 5 days but it was done after three.

    Brewing a pseudo lager!

    With the mention of rapid time, I expected kveik to be the suggestion for yeast. I did ny first and only "lager" in November and it was ready to pour a week after brewday. It's now super clear but I am upset that the keg is nearly empty! Enjoyed reading the article. No point over-complicating.

    You need a length of this (not 30m. Sorry, couldn't find a link to what I bought) with a jubilee clip to attach to the bottom of the cylinder. I cleaned up a couple of these CQs over chrostmas. One came out working well, the other needs some more attention...

    Closed vs "semi closed" transfer to keg

    No, I stick a gas disconnect on the gas in post with nothing attached to it, which essentially vents the co2 in the keg as it fills with beer via the beer disconnect

    Closed vs "semi closed" transfer to keg

    To be honest, I just use gravity from tap on FV to beer in disconnect. I purge the keg first and have had no problems thus far. As I write this, I see @chrisb8 has respondend and I do exactly that, except my Gas disconnect is not connected to anything...

    First tap

    Nice one. How did you sort it?

    Advice for check valve with beer engine

    I think it was beer and tiredness that caused the keyboard malfunction athumb.. Thanks for that. I think it is more than likely the lack of venting, as I initially carbed up the beer before I had the engine set up, so qas more carbed than required.

    Move to kegging advice

    I have a small keezer, which only fits one keg. I used to have a regular beer tap mounted on it, but now I use a fridge for colder keg-style beer, so use the keezer for ale temp beers. I just need to make a bracket to mount the engine to the keezer itself.

    Move to kegging advice

    To be honest, I don't think I would be wanting a dark mild to be creamy. I have one planned and intend to serve at 12 degrees at just over 2psi through my beer engine.

    Advice for check valve with beer engine

    Thinking about it, I know it sounds obvious, but have you left the drain valve open by mistake? I imagine that would just draw air through.

    That sounds annoying. I wonder if that's the same reason I am getting foam in the line on mine. Sounds like our setup is identical, except for the drain valve, which I didn't include.
