  1. Just tried the California steamer (5 weeks secondary) and it poured beautifully. I didn't do anything different compared to the last two kegs ( a premium lager and birra italiano) in the brewflo apart from 2 weeks longer storage. The mystery of the brewflo continues.

  2. My batch of weissbier from the keg is all head. Preivous couple of kegs were also quite heady but not this bad. the beer line is also full of bubbles.

    I am guessing the secondary fermentation temp was too high and that the kegs are very sensitive to storage temp.

    Any thoughts?

    So conditioning at ambient Sunshine Coast temperatures has been a bit detrimental to a few bottles in the last couple of weeks, they have been getting very carbonated and some bottles have even deformed from all the extra pressure they have been under.  I tried loading up a keg into my BrewFlo this morning and even these kegs might be having the same expanding trouble.  It has expanded so much that it won't actually fit in the BrewFlo 1f631.png.  This keg was right up against the wall in the laundry which might not have been the best idea, but the keg next to it seems fine so I have swapped them over for now.

    I am looking for recommendations from others on how you might burp these kegs.  I didn't think of it until I was driving to work.  My plan tonight is to disconnect the air from the chilled good keg and use the air line connector elbow joint thingy and just stick it into the air line on the affected keg for a few seconds to relieve pressure.  How does that sound?  I figure it will be just like when you disconnect an empty keg and all the air rushes out, hopefully the keg isn't permanently stretched too badly.

     same happened to me warm keg would not fit. I got the elbow connector from a beer line and purged some beer using carbonation pressure and put the keg in the fridge. After cooling it just fit the brewflow

    However the keg is distorted and so is the lid so I had to dispose the keg and am using the valves from the lid as spares.

     


  4. My unit gets very hot during summer so some of my brews during secondary fermentation are getting over 30 degrees.

    Anyone got any ideas for something like a wine cooler fridge that could be used to store several kegs and bottles at 18 degrees (recommended secondary fermentation temperature)
