Greetings:

I am in recent receipt of a Cornelius kegging system and I have a
few questions regarding its care and feeding.

1. How does one ferment in steel? I know of brewers who split the
primary into two five-gallon vessels, relieving the pressure at
regular intervals, and counter-pressure transfer to a single
secondary. Others remove the fittings and tubes and replace them
with blowoff tubes for primary and counter-pressure transfer to
primary as well.

2. What are the preferred cleaners/sanitizers for stainless? I
know of those who swear by between TSP or Iodophor, and one who
even uses bleach with minimum exposure.

3. My current Cornelius inventory consists of one five-gallon and
one three-gallon. In addition, I have a Firestone I acquired from
a generous Coca-Cola driver. I there a simple means to incorporate
this into my system, or should I seek to replace it with another
Cornelius?

Thanks,

jal
