    Jeremy: It isn't so much the shanks warming inside the wall, it's the exposed part of the shank, the faucet, and that great big SS heat sink you have them mounted on.

    Try it out, and if you don't...

    No, your CO2 line length doesn't matter--as long as you don't starve your kegs for CO2. Looks like you have plenty of regulators, so you're not putting too much draw on a single regulator. You can...

    The Watchdog is an excellent tool. Set-up properly, it maintains a constant OUTPUT pressure--something you'll struggle (and fail) to do by controlling headspace pressure only.

    OTOH--If the vessel...

    How did you "do the math" without knowing your delivery pressure?

    Your choker line dia.s and lengths are to reduce the equalization pressure of the beer, plus the pressure needed to get it to the...

    Sounds good.

    To make transfers easier, it would be better to blow the keg down all the way or most of the way, then pressurize to just above the pressure in your bright tank/uni. If te pressure in...

    Sounds to me like you're trying to use a tavern head coupler for filling kegs. You should be using a keg filler/washer coupler instead. The easiest way to tell te difference is that the tavern...

    I've never seen anything like that in many hundreds of kegs cleaned and inspected. All of our kegs are Micromatic, which might have something to do with it. Our kegs are retired due to damage--bent...

    Well, it's been about three months since we last replaced the top seals of the centrifuge.

    Yep. Another one. The brewers were rinsing the centrifuge in prep for a transfer...

    We're in NE Oregon. Take-out only for the pub. We can fill growlers. Pub and kitchen are running on a skeleton crew.

    We're hoping that package sales will keep the brewery hopping. No kegs for a...

    You have your system set us as first-in, last-out already. I think. Doubt it matters for your system anyhow.

    Have fun with that!

    The steel of a keg side/top is very thin. It's much easier to blow through than to get a halfway decent weld. I'd look to finding someone with a proper argon and TIG set-up and...

    I hadn't noticed that, but then, I never did the comparison. I'm more worried about CIP and foaming issues.

    It's amazing how fast the chrome plating on the brass fittings goes.

    A quick note: We've gone with all SS tavern heads, too, as the kind of corrosion shown in Linus' picture will occur from line-cleaning chemicals, leaving a rough, hard-to sanitize surface exposed to...

    Been there, done that.

    Tim: The cleaning couplers, in addition to not having PRVs, are about twice the ID of a tavern head. Most automated keg washers will see the extra back-pressure as a fault.

    Yeah, what Linus says. The solenoid valve should be located right behind the evaporator, so the wiring is right there and easy to get to. As Linus point out, compressors run on cycles, and it's not a...

    Each of our trunks splits into two lines immediately after the pump. We've never had any problems running this way for 8 years.

    This is pretty much normal for a defrost timer. While you would normally use a double-pole switch for 208, it works if you just interrupt either leg. As shown in the wiring diagram.

    That makes no sense. OP is in Georgia, USA. All taxes and sales are figured in gallons or brewer's barrels. Most of our containers are in fluid ounces. Why add confusion?
