    Bottling beer thats been carbed with Nitro?

    Dos anyone know if you have to sue special food grade Nitrogen or if the disposable cylinders at plumbing stores will do the same job? Ive read that beer Nitro is a mix of Nitro and CO2 but it doesnt seem to say that on the cylinders that are sold at kegland and other brew stores etc.

    Bottling beer thats been carbed with Nitro?

    Ive had both and they both pour with a decent cascading effect like Guinness. You have to pour from height and the Mango Milkshake can says to shake the can twice then pour from a height.

    Bottling beer thats been carbed with Nitro?

    Not every can has a widgets. 4 Pines Nitro stout is in bottles and has no widgets. Either does One drop mango Milkshake IPA. Which is why I asked as it seems they can bottle/can without using widgets??

    Bottling beer thats been carbed with Nitro?

    The Corona Virus (COVID 19) Thread

    I can't believe all the conspiracy theory wack jobs that have come out with their crazy theories. Covid19 is a man made biological weapon made by the Chinese to take over the world. Covid19 is caused by 5G and has the same symptoms. 5G is a way to break down our brains defence mechanism so...

    I want to go into All-Grain

    Many brewers prefer a hydrometer but a refractometer is easier. A few drops is all you need. They arent accurate with fermenting wort but you can use a conversion calculator (Found online and with most brewing software). The key to good all grain beer is record everything for repeat ability...

    I made a crafteerpi controller box for mine. I can switch between the Guten controls (Say if Im just running some sod perc to clean) or cbpi. I added a switch to the side of the guten and 2 IEC plugs underneath in the cable well. 1 for the elements and 1 for the pump. I use a PT100 probe in...

    No Frills low cost pressure fermenting

    I think if anyone still has beer in a keg 3-5 months later they arent doing it right. If I wanted to sit on a beer for that long I would use a corny keg. These fermenter king juniors are ideal as a spare keg at a good price and I like that they are suitable for smaller 15-18 litre batches as I...

    Cleaning gear and water restrictions

I rinse mine out then put 10-15 litres of water in, add sod perc and heat it up to 50C then soak for 30 minutes.. The steam helps soften everything and I wipe it with a soft cloth. You an run...

    Yeast Beast

    i ordered some yeast from Yeastbeast awhile ago. There was a delay in posting but when I contacted him he said he was waiting to get the Kviek in that I had ordered as it was due in a week later. I got them no worries but that was a good 4-5 months ago. Just ordered from him again about 5...

    Tried everything! Infection again!

    Why dont you buy a cheap plastic Bunnings 20 litre water drum and ferment in that next time and see what happens? if you dont get an infection then its obviously the fermenter and I would just throw it and get another one.

    Keg King Conversation- Back On AHB

    No there is no built in timer to do that. Im not even sure if you use a seperate timer if it will work as I think it resets once its turned back on. I will test it tonight. Yes you can use the pump to transfer to the fermenter but if you havent used the hop spider you might find it gets blocked...
