    Carbonation questions

    Yep 2nd that! Edit: ps Bracton line cleaner is another great glass cleaner, just soak for a bit then rinse which I usually do at the same time as my lines but if your not a kegger then all of what I just said is probably useless to you.

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

    I always vac seal and freeze, use what I need to on brewday then seal again and at all times in the freezer and I find my hops last as long as it takes me to use them, for some variety’s this could be over a year as I usually buy in 500g -1kg lots, your supposed to lose a little bit over time...

    Steeped hops or dry hopping reducing clarity?

    Dry hopping will add haze to beer, nothing to worry about it's from the oils in the hops, I'm not usually over concerned with clearing hop haze out, I find it does clear over time in the keg but I don't use clearing agents! Was looking recently at biofine clear which seems to be working well for...

    Kegging Setups

    I had a keg do this a while back, was a porter and I'd just replaced the poppets and seals etc, was actually the poppet valve and spring that got clogged up so I had to unscrew it and give it a clean! When I say clogged it took **** all to block it because it was new and tightly sealed I guess...

    Intertap vs perlick taps

    I worked it out, was just getting used to the new setup after all. I was a touch over carbed and pouring pressure was slightly high which obviously with my old taps didn't matter as much so I let out some pressure earlier and turned the pouring pressure down slightly and voila perfect pour, so...

    Intertap vs perlick taps

    Anyone have any trouble with their fc intertaps foaming and if so how did you remedy it, could be I just need to get used to the new setup but even when I adjust the flow right down it still foams, not as bad though
