How to Fix a Keg That Leaks – 5 Things to Check

New 5 Gallon Corny Keg Ball Lock

Adventures in Homebrewing has a nice step by step write up on fixing keg leaks.  I particularly like #5 “Post O-Rings”.  I find that to be a particularly pesky leak.  I’ve lost at least one full tank of CO2 to a bad oring that cost pennies – See: Checking for Gas QD CO2 Leaks for more on that.

Reader Tip & Video: 1/2″ Heavy Duty Drill at Harbor Freight + Cereal Killer Grain Mill

Thanks to Twitter Follower Joe for this tip!  [Connect with HBF on Twitter]

Joe suggested this drill on sale at Harbor Freight for powering Adventures in Homebrewing‘s Cereal Killer Grain Mill

Joe says: “I have the Cereal Killer Grain Mill and I power it with this drill and I’ve never been happier.”  1/2″ Heavy Duty Spade Handle Drill

The Cereal Killer Grain Mill from Adventures in Homebrewing gets consistently great cln_img_2933feedback and is one of our Top Finds.  This is a great mill!  Check out my Hands on Review.

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  2.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  You know what the crush is going to be since you set it.  3.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain at a discount, and 3.  The shelf life of unmilled grain is longer than pre-milled grain.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer.
