    1-2 psi. Probably not enough to worry about unless you normally keep your spunding valve set very low.

    You're not wrong. The confusion arises because we're comparing apples and oranges - headspace equilibrium pressure for a given level of carbonation vs behaviour of gas at different temperatures. The two physical phenomena don't react to temperature changes in the same way. Furthermore, the...

    No it doesn't? 12 psig at 20C is 26.7psia at 293.15K 5C is 278.15K The absolute pressure will reduce proportionally to the absolute temperature. (278.15/293.15) * 26.7 = 25.3 psia = 10.63 psig In reality you'll see it read a tiny bit lower than that after cold crash - the increased solubility...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    It looks like maybe they don't advertise specials on out-of-stock items anymore? It looked like the NukaTaps had jumped up in price when the new site first came online, for instance, but when they actually came in stock the same special as the previous site was restored.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    These bugs appear to be caused by the LastPass extension. Final update: I have been able to work around this issue by adding Kegland.com.au as a "Never AutoLogin" URL per this page: Manage Never URLs Make sure to add it as "kegland.com.au" rather than "www.kegland.com.au/" - the first will...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Search is just totally broken for me, it glitches out at random intervals and if I do manage to finish what I'm typing before it glitches it shows the results for a split second and THEN glitches..

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Is it? I mean, it's garbage, but it's garbage in most of the same ways as the old one. The search sucked, it still sucks. The categorisation was haphazard and hard to intuit, and it's still that, too. But the only feature of the old site I miss is the large New Products feed on the homepage. The...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Expecting: 1) Sometime after the RAPT fridge 2) Features similar to the RAPT fridge - wireless connectivity, smarter control. Hoping: Better pump inlet protection - the false bottom has a pretty loose fit, getting the tolerances on that tightened up would be one approach Proportional power...

    Fixed now (and with the message adjusted to something a little better considered to boot). Now, if they could just go through the entire site and edit the rest of their copy...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I use sodium perc for general cleaning stuff all the time - anything that's dirty but not greasy it takes care of no trouble. Stuff baked onto dishes and oven racks, stuff that's been left in the garden and picked up mould or fungus or whatever, cheaper-per-use stain remover in the laundry...

    I think they're recommending that you don't soak - less liquid, more action.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I've had hops in the serving keg for months without issue. I have no idea what kind of "decomposition" KL think can happen in a low-O2 refrigerated environment...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Yes, but if they were following best practices (and this isn't even "best practices" so much as it is "the bare minimum for anyone handling logins to any remote system") they can't know the length of a stored password. Now, they could measure it during login, but if they were doing that they...

    They do look to be a similar design to the flow control disconnects though, so hopefully their appearance means KL have sorted out the tolerance issues that relegated the previous batch of FCs to seconds...

    Fermenting Under Pressure

    Some yeasts don't like it. There's no question that that much pressure is a stressor. You can mostly get the best of both worlds by adjusting the pressure to your typical range (10-15 psi or whatever you use) for most of the ferment, then adjusting your PRV to ~30-35 psi for the last 4 points...
