comment How can I avoid a lot of foam in the first pint from the keg?
I reset my pressure for the length of tube I had based on the formula at the link you mentioned, and the problem is gone, thanks!

comment Can I make low (or no) protein beer?
I know people who have PKU, which is a genetic disorder that makes people unable to process one of the amino acids in protein, so they are VERY limited in how much protein they can have. I wanted to make them a beer that they could enjoy without having to worry about the protein level.

My kegs are in a normal size fridge with the taps mounted on the front. As a test I could try cooling the taps with ice and then pouring a beer :) Not a long term solution, but it would be interesting to see if it worked.

Thanks for that link, plugging in some estimates looks like I need about 5.75 feet of tubing and I only have around 4.5 feet right now. The next keg that goes in I will try playing with the psi to make my tubing length work and see if that formula holds true.

comment Primary fermentation taking a long time
That's an interesting idea. It's far enough along where I'm just going to let it slow down and then transfer it, but I like your idea.

comment How often do people replace their plastic brewing components?
I just had to stop using my bucket and go all-glass for fermenting. Each batch seemed to start having problems. I had been using the bucket for ~4 years. Every six months seems like overkill.
