    Force carbonation: lots of head pressure, still flat beer

    About 40 psi on top for 8 days and the beer pours flat.* Full keg. Weird, so I drank a few pints and pressurised again. Week 2 and same result.

    It was a little nap, nothing less than 15 minutes and probably no longer than 3 hours. But suffice it to say... My 48 litres of 1068 wort danced its luscious dance till I upgraded my conscious state to 'functional' and turned everything off. Now, before the H&S committee have a tanty just...

    What caused you to change your job

    An interest of mine at the moment... Among fellow Brewers (and lurkers), what has been a reason or two for you to decide changing jobs? Was it ever because of a tiny thing and the market was booming; or how much did you put yourself through before finally making the choice. Did the new job...

    LessonLearnt: Temperature Probe Connectors

    I want to share a lesson I knew but had to learn again it seems. My brew rig is gradually adding on electrical control systems.
