Casking, Kegging & Bottling / Re: Carbing a Corny
« Last post by combat32 on February 17, 2019, 10:03:19 AM »
1st, welcome to the 17 Brewcrew.  17!

we have discussed this before, but i dont recall we had a definite answer.
so for most IPA's i shoot for around 2.5-2.9 volumes. I force carb.

1)  i would try 4oz of corn sugar, mix it with a cup of water to de-solve it and bring it to a boil to sanitize it

2) see number 1

3) hit it with 15-30psi to seal it

4) your fermenting temp or a little warmer

Casking, Kegging & Bottling / Carbing a Corny
« Last post by meobeou on February 17, 2019, 09:48:27 AM »
Hi all after some advice on naturally carving a keg.

I have an IPA I'm going to be kegging today and I'd like to naturally carb it with priming sugar my question(s) is

1)how much should I use for a IPA

2)assuming I just dump the priming sugar in the keg first and rack on top?

3)what initial PSI should I put on top?

4)what temp will it need to sit at to naturally carb in the keg?

Sorry for all the questions and thank you all for your advice in advance :)

Craig,

Nevermind! Combat32 gave me advice to add another yeast packet, as the previous one may have been expired. Waited 24 hours and still no krausen. I took a gravity reading (5th day in fermenter) and it was right where it should be! So, bottled it on time and in secondary fermentation.

Thanks anyway,
Uber

I will say when i first started it, i was having a hard time figuring out the calibration on my phone.
but now that i have the RaspberryPi running i can access it from my web browser and the configuration page is way nicer then the app. my OG was way off when i started and i got that fixed, i know it was right, i used my refractometer and my hydrometer both said 1.052 or damn close  ;)  the tilt was saying 1.044. in the morning i placed it in room temp water for like an hour and a half while i was mashing. it was reading 1.000 and once in awhile it would read 0.999 so i know that was good, but i didnt notice i was supposed to put it in a known gravity solution after the water. i did change my OG on the tilt to 1.052 before pitching my yeast, it was chilling down to 52F  so my next brew with it should be easier to calibrate.

The other feature that I like about the Fermentasaurus is the wide opening.  It measures 3.125" (7.94cm).

This allows you to use full size steeping socks rather than using multiple small hop socks when adding large amounts of ingredients during secondary fermentation.

The pics below show how easily 8oz of coffee beans and 3oz of Cocao Nibs that had soaked in a pint of vanilla flavored vodka were added to the fermenter without having to force it through the opening.
