comment Transfer from Sanke Keg to Corny keg?
You can get quick disconnect for a sanke fitting that have the same thread as the male end of your corny gas and liquid fittings. So swapping fittings can be done in a minute or two. I have a 3-tap tower and can serve any combination of homebrew or commercial.

comment What can I expect when I put 32 oz confectioners sugar in my 5 gal brew?
Beer with a high percentage of sucrose often tastes cidery as apposed to watery.

comment Force-carbonation of unfiltered beer?
It is also more reliable for high-gravity beers (barley wine, Russian Imperial Stout, etc.), that are aged in secondary log enough that the active yeast has all dropped out, and even fresh yeast added at bottling is a crap shoot because the alcohol is so high already.

I'm not sure how a brand new brewer would be able to decide what's wrong and what's not.

comment Formulating a recipe
I know homebrewers who have used peanut butter powder to add flavor. It is basically peanut butter with all of the oil removed. IDK if it went into the boil or secondary.

comment Carboy versus 2nd Bucket
Carboys are easy to clean properly: brush the heaviest krausen off with a carboy brush, then add add 50ml of household bleach and fill with water. Let sit for 24 hours and the rest of the krausen disappears. Empty, rinse, and it is ready to go.

comment Keeping the keg lines and fittings clean
I have had kegs tapped for up to 6 months without cleaning the lines, and never had a problem. They are refrigerated at all times, though.

comment Why less priming sugar in a mini keg?
Agreed, but bear in mind that the mini-kegs are relatively fragile. If you pressurize them too much, they will distend the bottom or top of the keg, leaving them permanently misshapen. (Source: personal experience). So experiment on the cautious side.

comment 5 gallon batch in 16 gallon kettle?
Are you using this as a mash tun, or a boil kettle?

comment Why do people purge kegs before force carbonating?
Traditionally casks allowed O2 to enter as beer was drawn out, but these were served in pubs where the cask would empty within a day or so. Unless you are going through your homebrew that quickly, you will want CO2 replacing the beer.

I have over-carbonated cold beer in less than 5 minutes.

comment I ran out of CO2
Do NOT shake the keg for half an hour: Start with a minute or two, and then test by pouring some been after reducing the pressure in the keg to serving pressure. Shaking for 30 minutes at 20-30psi will surely overcarbonate the beer to the point where you will get nothing but foam.
