so this is my mini keg with 20g of priming sugar added, I guess its way too much

Maybe a little less next time

Ouch!

8-10g seems to be the consensus out there.

Yep, the can kegs don't take the pressure too well 😉
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

I’ve used these kegs for sometime, in the past I’ve used 2 teaspoons of sugar for priming and only had one batch that went nuts like that but I’m pretty sure I had kegged when the beer was not finished tbh, scary stuff getting rid of all of that pressure 😂

 I bagged it and used a punch to knock the plug in, it sent beer gushing out, but nothing that couldn't be cleaned up

What’s with the ‘salts’?

i mistakenly ordered 2 batches of the same recipe from the malt miller, so I decided to add some salts to one and not to the other, one got 10g Chlorine and one got 20g Sulphate for a 45l batch I expected this to be the biggest addition and so stand out the most, but to be honest I cant tell a difference, I also took 1 gallon of the salted batch and fermented it at 25c with WLP007, that doesn't taste any different to the others either .

Hmm I suspect a lot of such fine adjustments result in differences that exist in our heads more than actually in the beer.
I can’t really tell that my water adjustments do anything positive to the final brew

 The details are still a bit vague tbh, some say they have to be added to the mash to take effect some say they add through out the process, im still not convinced, but most mega breweries have there own ro water system, so there must be some thing in it.
