I didn't know that! I thought they were tested to 60.... :eek:

I did a quick search. Wiki says they will hold 130psi. Northern brewer says they are stamped, but most are about 120psi.

let me rephrase that. some kegs are rated at 35. you are correct. the older cornys that I have say do not exceed 35 psi on the side. The newer styles usually hold much more. again, YMMV. sorry for the misleading info.

Or 30psi for 48hrs.

I serve most beers at 10psi (38deg). Stout at 7ish psi for now. I want a stout faucet! :cool:

you, sir, are a genius. this method worked just fine for me.

the only question now is, once you have a 5 gallons of beer on tap, how do you avoid becoming an alcoholic? the bottles were easier to dose.

i filled six bottles for traveling/gifts (using my picnic tap) and they were fine. later picked up a #2 stopper with a hole in it. will try that for the next batch of bottles.

of course i'm willing to share/trade with anyone in the nyc area.

This comes up a lot in homebrewing and it is a serious issue. I set a strict 2 pint a day limit. YMMV

you are the first person to ever say that....probably the last. Glad it worked well for you.

I also agree with sharing the beer. Most of my buddies are more than happy to drink my beer I like to bottle a 6pk or so to store too.

Not home brewing of course but an interesting project I have been working on this summer and fall.

We built a restaurant a few years ago for a client. Now he has decided to open a Brewery across the street.

I'm not involved with the brewing ( but would like to be) just the guy trying to tack it all together.

Tanks get hooked up this week, hopefully we can run s test batch....

Yeah, consumption increasing is kind of an issue... I try to keg beers that I want to drink more in moderation. That doesn't always work so well...

I am in Eastern NC and have 8 corny kegs to sell for $40 a piece. Discount to $37 per unit if you buy them all. Pm me If interested. I'll share an imperial stout with whoever comes by to pick them up. Happy brewing.

Mine went down.

Tap's in the kitchen, use a smaller glass, you don't think about it, but getting up the energy to walk to the kitchen will slow your consumption way down, where I would grab a few bottles to save the trip, I've not yet found myself willing to fill multiple glasses.

If I have a porter or a stout on tap, I drink a lot less. I just get too full too quickly. Now this summer when I brewed a honey ale, it was gone in about a week.

The other thing is if you have people over, a 5 gallon corny keg can go really quick. I only have one keg, so if it goes, I want to have something ready to keg right away. I botttle a six-pack of everything I keg so there's always a stash in the back room, and I do brew a batch specifically to bottle every two months or so. I'll be bottling a batch of porter next week - I always keep a lot of that on hand in bottles as it tends to be very popular amongst my friends.

I've been buying a lot of Boulevard beers as of late to get more bottles. Those and the Sierra Nevada bottles are my favorites for re-using for home brewing. They use the short necks with no brand stamping or embossing on the bottles.

bought a plate filter and filtered an IPA last night. All I can say is that it was money well spent. no more weeks of waiting for beer to clear, no funky yeast flavors or trub left in kegs. No worrying about moving a keg and stirring up crap, only to have to wait for it to settle again. nope, just carb and drink. Crystal clear IPA.
