    The tidier your set-up the easier it is to see when something is out of place. I've worked on a draught system that was such a tangled mess that a CO2 line was left disconnected for a week without...

    We bought ours through Nether Ind. They don't seem to be rebuildable, either. The butterfly valve is rebuildable, but not the cylinder. Butterfly valve seats are $35 each, so as they wear out, I'll...

    We use and have for years been using the regular vinyl beer line--3/8" ID X 3/4" OD from our kegs to our beer pumps. Never been a problem and it's much more flexible and easier to keep neat.

    Check your manual. If the crowner is an Arol crowner, I can maybe help you. It took me a lot of trial-and error to get ours working relatively well, but it's still the main cause of shut-downs. The...

    You will need a PID controller--we use Fujis--and some RTD cable to hook them up. The special RTD cable probably isn't essential, but it's made for use with them and is very high quality wire....

    We, too, dealt with the problem by simply labeling before filling. The pros, for us, far outweigh the cons.

    Pros:

    With an accumulation table between the labeler and filler, we don't need to...

    I just went through the same thing. There don't appear to be any 3/16" bore SS shanks.

    I just used brass ones, as we have them in systems that are twenty years old and still working fine--even...

    Oh, yeah: If you're going with bulk liquid CO2, Dewar or compressed, you'll also need a vaporizer sized for your system demands. Ours is passive, and sometimes in sub-zero weather I have to put a...

    Ah, I thought you were just asking about a draught system.

    We have a similar set up to draw from our big Dewars. We use a high-flow Rego Cryogenics for our primary, running 100-125 psi in the...

    The diaphragm material used in CO2 regs is different from that used in air regs. The air regulator diaphragm will break down after a while and the reg will stop working. It's sometimes possible to...

    What is the best hose for yeast transfer?

    Currently, and for many years past, we have used 3/4" ID clear, sanitary vinyl tubing, use once and discard. As we ramp up production, this is getting to...

  18. Seeking a certified sanitary and pressure-vessel welder in the Inland Northwest.

    I used to do all our welding, but my eyesight and fine manual dexterity ain't what they used to be.

    We've tried a couple of local welders, but the "can-do" attitude gets in the way of them...

    I'm glad you got it back together, clean and working.

    The lack of proper labeling seems irresponsible to me. We've been through several different brands of plate-and-frame HXs, and all have had...

    Trunk line is a long-term investment. It's not something you'll be replacing every year, so get the best you can and save some cents elsewhere. I've used Banner and Micro and been happy with both.
