    KegLand Questions and Answers

    . Most of us have the blowtie type, so to be able to switch them out for different psi is great. I do not know what the digital thing is you are talking about, sorry. If it's a square LCD that screws in place of the analog needle/dial ones, then yes, that would be great. But if it means buying...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    The 23's are good for pressure control to kegs etc... when aiming for 10-15psi, its a bit easier to adjust and control than the 30's

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    I have the ssbrewtech fermenter and 2 Brite tanks that i serve from. Everything is glycol chilled and transferred under pressure. The reason I ask is I have a Belgium dubbel in my fermenter and was thinking of naturally carbonating a couple of kegs and to age/condition for a few months. I don't...

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    @Grmblz do you find you get much sediment when naturally carbonating in a keg? Is it just a case of the first couple of pints being cloudy and the rest is ok?

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    Thank you, When we brew beer, we brew it for ourselves, yes, we like to share it with friends, but ultimately it is for ourselves A stout according to the book, is carbonated to roughly 2 volumes, for some that seems flat If you like your stouts fizzy and highly carbonated, go for it. Brew...

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    All I am saying is that if Darren naturally carbed in the keg, like you advised, and had his spunding valve at 15 psi, depending on his room temperature he is only making a 1.8 volume beer. So of course his beer is going to be flat. If he set his spunding valve to the target for the temperature...

    Can Conditioning.

    Has anyone tried can conditioning instead of bottle conditioning? If so, how did it go, is there a specific beer level you targeted, as in, how much head space do you leave in the can? Thanks Daz

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    Hi, There is a flaw in this method. Carbonation depends on temperature and pressure. Using the carbonation charts available online you need to set your spunding valve at the pressure that corresponds to the volumes of carbonation you want, at the temperature you are carbonating. So for your...

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    Darren, here goes. 1. The beer chooses its own time, you cannot rush it, the same kit may take 4 days one time and 10 the next. There are a few factors, temperature is the main one. I grow my yeast in a starter and oxygenate before pitching and my beers have finished fermenting after 4 days. In...

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    I find I lose maybe .2 to .3 volumes during bottling from a keg. So if I was aiming for 2.5 volumes I would try to start with a keg at 2.8

    Kegging Vs Bottling Beer

    It is really frustrating when you have a brand new kegging system and it just does not work. It takes a little bit of experimenting, time and patience, but eventually you get "your" system dialled in to "your" conditions and afterwards it's smooth sailing. Persevere with it, and you will get...
