comment Why does Olde English 800 taste so bad?
Graham speaks what I was thinking. However, I do understand where Denny Conn is coming from and realize now that this is really a question about a commercial beer. Just to clarify, I wanted to know what kind of processing was going into OE and how this differs from standard beer production. This is basically a commercial beer question and not one about home brewing in the end.

comment Can I increase secondary fermentation temperature after a week?
10 days?! That's insanely fast. I find my ales don't reach peak flavor until six weeks after when the yeast was first pitched.

comment Why would a recipe use both Light LME and Light DME?
Most of the extract recipes I have seen call for both LME and DME. No idea why and honestly I kinda doubt the creators know why either ;)

comment Do pin lock static relief valves need to be replaced after activation?
Yep. You get the idea. That's more or less how people are doing it. Thanks for your help!

comment Do pin lock static relief valves need to be replaced after activation?
Ah, that is the static relief valve that sits in the keg lid. The pin lock equivalent of williamsbrewing.com/KEG-LID-VALVE-P92.aspx. What you are thinking of is the spunding valve -> williamsbrewing.com/…

comment Can I Bottle Ginger Beer after the bubbles have stopped?
Just another tip to add in addition to what Tom has written up is that you will probably want to take gravity reading of your ginger beer. If it stays constant over three days I'd say you are done. You definitely want to make sure it is done if you are bottling in glass. If you are not cautious and fermentation is still continuing the bottles can build up co2 and explode.

comment Do pin lock static relief valves need to be replaced after activation?
I am trying to ferment under pressure and in a closed environment. I will transfer the beer from the primary keg to the secondary keg and then attach a spunding valve so the beer naturally carbonates, essentially creating "real ale" aka cask ale. In order to have a completely closed system the gas post needs to be kept on. The inconvenient fact is that there is very little space for blow off to travel through in the gas post, hence why I would like a back up pressure release method. Hopefully I won't have to worry about blowoff at all by filling the primary only roughly 1/2 to 2/3s full.

comment Do pin lock static relief valves need to be replaced after activation?
Interesting. Yeah I'm looking to use a corny as a primary fermenter. I'd like to know I have a backup co2 escape plan other than the blow off tubing attached to the gas post. I can't seem to find any information on how to determine if a static relief valve is in working order or not though.

Yep I'm talking about that irreplaceable relief valve which is present on pin lock kegs. What was the significance of the epoxy? Just to fill a gash?
