    Beer font PVC vs stainless, cost vs heat efficiency.

    "can you just weld a 5/8 stainless socket to the font and use a locknut on the shank?" I guess you could, but would have to rely on thread tape to seal it or get creative making a seal, the fitting you attached is what I used, it seals to the tap via a silicone seal, allowing easy removal for...

    Beer font PVC vs stainless, cost vs heat efficiency.

    Cheers mate, It was a PITA to fit the 2 middle tap hose tail mounts but do able. Fans would definatly be easier for the font cooling but I thought the frezeer chiller would have to run more, if that doesnt worry you then I'd go with a fan for font cooling, much easier. The glycol chiller works...

    All Grain Efficiency Very Low - What am I doing wrong

    I was having drama with crap efficiency (60%) on my home made braumiser clone. I wanted to do full volume mash to make things quicker / simpler. I chased everything I could think of to find the loss. Even tried mashing with 20lt and sparging but the negligible increase wasn't work the hassle...

    Keg King Mini Regulator - co2 bulb slowly drains to empty when disconnected?

    I've got the same reg, only used it a couple of times. First time I fitted the co2 bulb it dumped the whole bulb, via the nylon seal, bulb was as tight as possible. To me the nylon washer / seal isn't suitable for the co2 bulbs due to the surface finish on the bulb sealing face. For the second...

    Chest freezer recommendations

    No I don't have a problem with mine. Maybe this might happen if people have messed around with the hinges or fitted a collar?

    Chest freezer recommendations

    See this post: https://aussiehomebrewer.com/threads/keezer-advise-205l-hisense-chest-freezer.94131/#post-1434518 Id say you'd get 5 with a collar possibly 6 with a collar. Not sure how high the collar would need to be, possibly higher than others, I'm not home so cant measure mine.

    Growler Upgrade - adding carb cap for counterfilling/extra carbing

    That Kilkenny looks pretty flat you should work out a way to get more co2 in it I'm more about putting the beer in the Vac growler and giving it a blast of Co2 then on me way. Tip the beer in a glass when I get there. Too much crap hanging off 2 litres for me.
