  1. Keg King PET Pressure Fermenter FAQ

    Pressure Fermenting

    I am new to pressure fermenting, what is the recommended pressure for fermenting?

    Pressure fermentation allows for the suppression of some yeast ester formations. This means that the esters that would have been produced at higher temperatures can be supressed so temperatures can be raised to speed the fermentation process. We feel that the sweet spot for LAGER (spelled LARGER on most homebrew forums) fermentation is somewhere around 15psi or 1bar of pressure to help the beer remain crisp and help suppress the two no no’s in crisp lager which are banana and clove esters!

    Higher pressures can be damaging to the yeast’s cell walls.

    Ale fermentation, in general, seeks to nurture ester production so by keeping the pressure low, around 8 to 10psi, you’ll have virtually no detectable difference in flavour unless you’ve got a palate as sensitive as a gas spectrometer. 

    Is it easy to get into brewing and pressure fermenting?

  4. Help, my tap’s pouring foam!

    Help, my tap’s pouring foam!

    One of the more common questions we get is why is my kegerator pouring mostly foam? Although it's a common issue it's not usually an hard one to fix. Follow these steps to understand why beer foams up and how to stop it.

    With a kegerator system you will usually get a little bit of foam with the first pour as the tap cools down. A font fan will help to reduce this, they can be purchased separately but do come standard in all our Keg Master kegerators. Commercial pubs use glycol chilled fonts to keep the taps icy cold and are usually pouring beers more frequently than on a home kegerator. If you are consistently getting foam this may be caused by a variety of issues.
