    And here is the response from IDD:

    Hi George - We at IDD do understand what is required when it comes to Sankey keg system washing, sterilizing and cleaning. Unfortunately, many craft brewers...

    This is a reply on the MBAA email forum to someone who asked about O2 in the keg environment.

    Hi all,

    One can get very close to zero ppb oxygen in kegs if cleaning them properly.
    There is a...

    Yeah, I found out that the Squire 2 just simply does not have a long enough CO2 purge cycle to get the job done. You can call IDD and they'll say they can send engineers to reprogram it, but there's...

    Thanks a bunch Russ. You've confirmed what i've been suspecting. I'll give you guys a call today.

    Definitely. We have good water here in town, in general, aside from the chloramine at .87ppm average. Very very low mineral content.

    Unfortunately, we aren't in a spot to spend a lot of money all...
  6. So, you would agree that it is, indeed,...

    So, you would agree that it is, indeed, undersized, correct? I'm wondering if it is doing anything at all. The chlorine test kit that was here when I started is 5 years expired, but showed no...

    With all due respect, it's sort of pointless to add pH lowering salts like gypsum and calcium chloride AND pH raising salts like chalk and Baking Soda. Especially chalk. The pH effects will cancel...

    If the problem develops after three months and is plasticy/bandaidy, I'd look toward possible Brett infection. It can manifest itself that way in some scenarios. Do the warm cans also seem like they...
  9. Is our filter even close to big enough? Is it even an appropriate filter?

    Hi all - I just took over at a brewpub here in MN. I'm no expert on water filters, but I'm 99% sure the water filter that was here is not nearly big enough. We are a 10bbl brewhouse, putting out...

    Hello all - I have 13 people in line on the tanks and the sale is pending. I will email each interested person, in order that they contacted me, if the folks in line ahead of them bail. Cheers,...

    I'm very curious if folks have some Oxygen readings (in ppb) of the gas in their kegs after an IDD was cycle? I checked ours with a Beverly DO meter and our kegs' gas was in the 2200ppb range.
  13. Thanks for the response. Everything is plumbed...

    Thanks for the response. Everything is plumbed correctly and all inlet pressures are at the manual-recommended settings (see pic). The IDD engineers said the one thing we may not be doing right was...
  14. IDD Squire 2 Plus Issues - Not purging correctly - I'm pulling my hair out.

    Hello, I'm the new head brewer at a longstanding brewpub with a lot of ooooold and semi-neglected equipment. I've noticed a lot of oxidation on all of our kegged beers. Beer tastes great out of the...

    Ah ok. Thanks. Right now I'm looking at about 20 ibu from a 75 min fwh, and about 7 ibu from each a 15, 10, and whirlpool addition. 1.054 OG. Brewing it next week. Can't wait to see how she turns...

    Also, I'm assuming you mean to say your last addition gets you up to 42 IBU total? I doesn't add a full 42, correct?

    Cool. Thanks for the info, folks. I'm feeling more confident on this one.

    I'd say general suggestions to reduce hop usage would be:

    -Use your highest alpha hops for bittering. This'll lessen the poundage needed, and variety is less important, as not a lot of individual...

    Sorry, just figured out how to multi-quote!



    This is sort of what I'm doing now, as well. Have you had any IBU lab analysis done to see how close it is? I still feel like I'm shooting in the...
