    I’ve even decanted our 10l into a cube before it hits boil and reintroduced once the initial boil surge is over. Especially when I’m trying to get 44 l Out of my 50l unit. Seems to work just fine

    I have been stirring twice for the last few brews, has helped get mash efficiency up to 80% regularly. Even got 82% with 10kg in the 50l. A lot better then the last big brew I did with no stirring.

    Robobrew V3 vs Guten

    Mine malfunctioned after 15 batches, suspect it was something wrong with the PCB as the screen was dead and buttons non-responsive. It was quickly repaired by KK and is back in action. I would buy it again, the 50 l is a good size, I can get two cubes at a stretch.

    Keg King Conversation- Back On AHB

    Unfortunately a bit tall for my fermentation fridge, I've only got 860 mm. Suspect this is a common problem for people using old fridge/freezer systems. Can these be inverted in the in the cradle for a reduced height?

    I lost a few parts to my overflow pipe so was keen to get the telescopic one, but these reports of broken welds is a bit worrying. I had a badly scorched element after brewing a hefeweizen with my overflow blocked up, probably could have been avoided with more rice hulls, but a telescopic...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I'm curious about this method. I would have thought that even with multiple purges of CO2 there would still be a reasonable component of oxygen in the collection container, that would be introduced to the brew. Similar to trying to purge oxygen out of a keg by pressurising with CO2 and burping...

    No chill hop additions with hop spider

    I've got a 50l and lose a couple of litres with trub in the base of the kettle. Also worth noting that the litre markers aren't very accurate, and cubes tend to be bigger than 20l (mine are 22l), so it might take a few runs to get your volumes dialled in. Worth filling a cube up, then using...

    After a weekend of mishaps I'm a false bottom convert. I've struggled with a helix setup on the tap outlet, which is slow to drain, even when hot cubing. Decided to go down the Brewzilla false bottom route. was easy enough to cut to size using an angle grinder. Was doing a double batch (9 kg...
