---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 7 Jan 2009 07:16:06 -0800 (PST) From: Calvin Perilloux <calvinperilloux at yahoo.com> Subject: Forced air lines For forced air cooling of beer lines, depending on the geometry of your setup, you might be able to use what my friend Lou King set up in his place: Use a stretch of 3 or 4" diameter pipe (e.g. PVC), and inside that pipe have another, smaller one that has the beer line running inside of it. A cheap PC fan can be used to force cool air through the small pipe, thus chilling the beer line to roughly the same temp as your fridge, and the return comes back outside of that smaller pipe, inside/via the big one. If you have it sealed well, you should encounter no problems with condensation or moisture inside, especially if you use something like Damp Rid in the main cooler. You could consider insulating it all on the outside. That would reduce the energy usage a tad as well, since any heat the air picks up from the exterior shell as it returns to the cooler (as well as the heat from the fan) will go back to the fridge. For a more flexible setup, you might look at dryer flex hose, but I think that would surely call for insulation around it. You might consider something like this flexible, insulated hose: http://www.bghydro.com/BGH/itemdesc.asp?ic=AFADI05X25 Then just run a smaller flexy "air-out" line inside it and the beer line inside of that.

I've never used Potassium sorbate in beer, only wine: Will it leave any flavor?? How much Pot. sorb. per gallon will work? What is the procedure as far as time before adding th fruit? Thanks, Joe Return to table of contents
