I try not to cultivate yeast from fruit beers, that's about it.

When I go to secondary, yes. After primary you tend to have a lot of other crap in your trub - proteins, hop particles, etc. You get them in secondary, as well, but not as much.

comment Corny keg that won't hold pressure.
I was going to retire it, but then I thought: What if I build a beer engine and use that keg ONLY for Real Ales?

Oh, it's definitely the top of the keg that's warped. I bought a whole new lid for it with no avail. Still - I'm digging this pennies idea. Thus far we're holding pressure and keg-carbonating. Thanks!
