    Just how DO you get that juicy IPA taste and aroma?

    I'm still confused. Why did you stop taking hydro samples? How are you exposing your beer to O2 by drawing it from the tap?

    How were you taking your samples before? Your writing seems to imply you were exposing your beer to oxygen when doing so. Were you opening the lid for some reason?

    In lieu of the innovator himself - I'm guessing he is under the impression that brewing to a higher OG and watering back down to target OG would make a better beer than one brewed to the target OG without watering down. ie wort at 1.06 watered down to 1.052 > wort at 1.052 without water addition.

    Bad batch of gaskets maybe. Have them send you replacement gaskets I reckon, send the old ones back

    KK - 'Fermentasaurus' conical PET fermenter

    Yeah, the seal thing is a problem. At what pressure did it start to leak? The bottle is helpful for me. Plugging issue sorted with my workaround above, any residual crud in the throat area is just stuck to the sides - it doesn't come through when transferring to keg. I compare the experiences...

    For this reason I've started fermentation with the valve closed. If it's going to form a plug anyway, it doesn't matter. Then after 24hrs, simply open the valve; the plug will be gone right quick, and re-settle in the bottle. Works for me anyway.

    Continuing Rant Thread - Get it Off Ya Chest here

    The author of the deleted PM still appears on a member lookup. Not sure what's gone on there but at miminum I would expect communication from the perpetrator.

    They've pinched a convo from my inbox too. Not happy.

    Kolsch brew

    Consider also - on the whole "Kolsch" labelling thing. This abomination exists and it tastes like nothing more than fairy floss, they named it as such only for the alliteration. https://www.jamessquire.com.au/craft-beer/karni-kolsch/#

    DIY Kegmenter

    ^ my point exactly - and no longer needing a spunding valve would make a pressure fermenter very enticing for purchase.

    Automatic pressure release over 30PSI would be awesome as well. For many purposes it would eliminate the need for a spunding valve entirely.
