    How to make a keg level indicator

    Amazing - I searched all over Google about a month ago to find a solution to this problem and definitely didn't find this. Only thing i found was a temperature strip type thing which had been discontinued because it didn't work! Two problems with the ball and keg set up - it's not available in...

    How to make a keg level indicator

    I just used a baring from a BB gun - really small - really the bigger the better upto a point. I guess that it has to match/balance with the strength of magnet inside the egg. Too big and it will fall off and too big magnet and it will sink or hold the baring too 'tight'. I really want to use...

    How to make a keg level indicator

    This way round the light egg which should float just stays fixed in the air as the magnet on the outside has a flat surface - it needs to roll.!

    How to make a keg level indicator

    Because the keg isn't magnetic the ball just rolls down the side as the 'floating' egg drops with the level of liquid. Doesn't really matter how strong the magnet is in the keg/egg (as long as it doesn't cause it to sink). its all about the baring rolling down the side without resistance. Have...

    How to make a keg level indicator

    Well after several annoying attempts at tapping the side of a keg (much like kicking a tyre), messing around with scales (meaning disconnecting) and generally just faffing about, I decided there has to be a really simple way to see what's left in your Corny! Well good news there is, and it...

    Persistent nightmare

    Great. Sounds like you are getting sorted. Just a thought but bleach can cause off flavours even when rinced well. It took me a while to realise that after rinsing with water the residue would run back down the walls. I now use brewery sanitizer product just to eliminate that problem.

    Persistent nightmare

    You mentioned early on that you think it could be yeast - as its from a brewery, did you research what the cell count is? Its really easy to underpitch with yeast from a brewery because I would guess they arent washing it (ie concentrating it), and they may be just top cropping which would mean...

    BJCP 2015 Category????

    Doesn't seem right to enter a competition as an English Porter when it has coffee, cocoa and vanilla in it - but not much option, even the oddball categories don't cover it except the catch all one!

    Great but what category is Robust Porter for the 2015 bjcp categories?

    BJCP 2015 Category????

    Hi All cant find the best category for my 'Cocoa Double Espresso Porter'. It will have Espresso, Cocoa paste and Vanilla pods. It is essentially a Porter, but not sure you could put it in Baltic Porter and Robust (which it was listed as) doesnt seem to exist anymore!
