    Feeling electricity through hands when using Guten

    Do not use the unit, it is faulty and could kill you. Keg King should send you a new unit and arrange for the faulty one to be sent back to them or destroyed.

    Wand kept blocking.

    Actually I think that I have seen someone on YouTube put a hop bag in a keg then rack down the hatch and then carefully removed the bag. It might have been gash slug or Craig from craigtube

    I'm not sure if it is best practice but would lining the bottling bucket with a grain bag be worthwhile. The bag would probably need to be removed prior to racking but it should take all the hop matter with it.

    Tried And Proven Low Carb Lager.

    Definitely lose body and mouthfeel. Probably lose flavour too. I'm also looking at using dry enzymes too

    Senior airlock

    They are a good airlock. Never had it blow apart like the two piece one did that one time bry-97 came to town. I don't use any of the old classic style airlocks I have. I find most of them are poorly manufactured because of the excessive flashing and the parting line shows that they can't even...

    TassieTrucker Sayin' G'Day

    Recently did that one with 1kg ldme @ 18° 4 days and 21° 6 days with a danstar ale yeast. Dry hopped in the keg with a little simcoe. Come up pretty nice for a k&k :)
