    Kegland n2/CO2 potential issue

    Are you not worried that the cylinder is slowly leaking gas or do you think it’s slow enough it doesn’t matter?

    Kegland n2/CO2 potential issue

    A relief to know it’s not just me, I guess it’s because the pressure is so high. Do you only pressurise when you need it?

    Wine in a corny?

    I’m about to try doing this with red wine. I already have n2 for my stout so will use that as less carbon dioxide absorbed. On rare occasion I do need a bottle I’ll just fill one. I’d struggle with white as I don’t have a chiller, but I could bottle one at a time and put it in the fridge…

    Kegland n2/CO2 potential issue

    I gave a potential issue with my 4 month old kegland n2/CO2 reg. hoping someone can offer some advice. Generally it’s working well. I only connect it to the keg when dispensing and similarly only turn on the cylinder when dispensing. Running about 50psi on the stout. My concern is that the...

    Weirdest question? How to dry tubing?

    Great idea, but how does one get the cord through 3m of tube to then pull through?

    Weirdest question? How to dry tubing?

    Is it ok to leave these items permanently in the chemicals? I thought prolonged exposure could cause degradation and pitting in the material?

    Weirdest question? How to dry tubing?

    Good thought on the airflow from that fan. Combined it’s a funnel I might try making up a diy blower…

    Weirdest question? How to dry tubing?

    Good call on boiler cupboard, that’ll be quicker than just on the stairs…

    Weirdest question? How to dry tubing?

    I can’t believe I can’t find anyone who’s asked this, but it seems obvious. You have 3m of tubing from your coil cooler or beer line or whatever that you want to store, you don’t want to store it damp. So what? I hook it on the stairs to air dry. Anyone else have an idea that actually works...

    First venture into Nitrogen and Stout faucet

    Will try and get some photos today and get them uploaded. My setup is very slapdash mind, I have very limited space in the corner of a small old shed. It does at least prove one doesn’t need a full blown man cave to get a good result…

    First venture into Nitrogen and Stout faucet

    Thanks for the pointers. I had certainly been thinking to use CO2 to carb before hooking the beer gas up, but hadn’t encountered pressure fermentation before - I guess that’s in equivalent like priming that I used to do with the poly kegs, but you do it in a secondary fermentation vessel, and...

    First venture into Nitrogen and Stout faucet

    Just to report in on my foray into nitrogen and stout. Brewed a beer according to the Velveteen Milk Chocolate Stout recipe, and being new to All Grain and having broken my main thermometer, I was a little off with my temps, I think the reason I ended up with a high OG an FG. About 5.8% in the...

    Gas regulator - should they also vent to maintain target

    Great, thanks for the explanation. I guess I was trying to get my head straight on them before I buy a second one for CO2 in case I’d missed out on a feature with my kegland. Would you have any recommendations for a brand of specific regulator to invest in for CO2 use on a Cornelius keg? From...

    Gas regulator - should they also vent to maintain target

    thanks for that detail. So it sounds like the Kegland Reg I have is effectively a cheap non venting regulator? It does have a safety valve on it but I guess that’s not what is meant by VENTING? I assume the venting type is Controlled Venting and can be adjusted using a valve on the regulator...

    Gas regulator - should they also vent to maintain target

    you could be right, I figured this particular stupid question was certainly worth asking though. I imagine such a reg must exist, but maybe not in this application….

    Gas regulator - should they also vent to maintain target

    Hi all, New to regulators and I have just bought a kegland mk4 for nitrogen. I’m a little surprised it doesn’t maintain target pressure even in case of over pressure, but I’m just a little surprised. Are there such things as regulators that maintain a target range, so will vent if pressure...

    Mark in Sutton Coldfield

    Hi all, long time leech of the info in here, finally joined up. been brewing for about 20 years, moving from cheap extract kits, through premium kits, to stovetop AG, to full AG, and now running Nitrogen fuelled Cornelius kegs - first ever corny keg just conditioning now and can’t wait too test...
