---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 18 Mar 2010 11:36:13 -0400 From: Danny Williams <danny at bubrew.org> Subject: Re: Kegging & growler fill advice I fill growlers exactly the same as I fill smaller bottles - with a poor man's counterpressure filler. The growlers require a larger stopper, of course, and at 10psi I cannot hold in the larger stopper with my fingers so I made a strap to go around the bottle and hold in the stopper. It fills hands-off with no foam at all and no need to reduce pressure or vent the keg. If I intend to keep the growler full for a while I will fob the beer as I remove the filler and cap on foam. Sorry I have no pictures of the rig; if anyone needs them speak up and I will take some. Danny Williams danny at bubrew.org Nokomis, Florida Return to table of contents
Date: Fri, 26 Mar 2010 03:39:34 -0700 (PDT) From: Frank Russo <fjrusso at yahoo.com> Subject: Stuck Fermentation >From my previous post it sounds like I didn't get across my problem. I had a stuck batch of a Belgian Trippel. After racking to secondary I put 3 gallons of apple juice on the yeast cake and it took off like crazy. That tells me the yeast from the Belgian was okay. Since then I have added a SafAle 05 (After re-hydrating) to the Belgian and it has restarted. So my problem is solved. But I am curous why it got stuck in the frist place, but the yeast took off when I put the Apple juice on the yeast cake. Regards, Frank J. Russo Return to table of contents
