    My KK vs KL post was deleted - Why KK is not allowed here

    You’re not in any position to accuse someone of bias mate. We could clone the management of KegKing just by wiping your chin.

    My KK vs KL post was deleted - Why KK is not allowed here

    Oh crap, just realised I meant Speedgas not BOC. Fixed my earlier post. No rental. I bought my tank outright and they happily refill it for me. They’ll test it too if it needs testing. You’re right about BOC. They’ll only refill their own rented bottles.

    My KK vs KL post was deleted - Why KK is not allowed here

    Says the KK rep who causes the most issues and constantly tries to pretend he’s just a interested customer? Just what does KK give you for your “Opinions”. Free gear? Deep discounts? I’m sure all of the above. Everyone knows exactly where your bread is buttered mate. I’ve bought from all of em...

    My KK vs KL post was deleted - Why KK is not allowed here

    I just get my bottle refilled at the local BOC gas centre. $50 for a 6l, takes 10 minutes, is 5 mins from work and I can avoid the whole KK/KL/LHBS nonsense. I buy from whoever has what I want for the lowest price just like in every other walk of life. I ain’t running a charity

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Yep, I think that would just about do it. A RAPT fridge able to hold 6-8 kegs, mounts for both C02 and Nitro tanks, a gas board able to accommodate multiple PSI ranges, good insulation in the door, multiple compact taps in the door, have it plumbed through the wall into the kitchen sink for my...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I do really like the idea of KegLand making a larger multi-keg fridge. Personally I really liked the look of the RAPT fermentation fridge/chamber as a multi-keg unit. The flexibility to hold multiple kegs of different sizes and in different configurations is really nice. Four full size and I...

    Brew fridge

    According to Bunnings they're 440mm tall. You won't be able to fit them in the fridge with a standard airlock, but a blow-off tube would be fine. However; you also want to allow room for a tap fitting on the front of the Jerry - you need 340mm for the can and another 80mm or so for the taps on...

    Brew fridge

    That's why I use 20L Jerry cans to ferment. They can actually fit around 22l in them which gives just enough room for a 19L corny keg brew. The headspace is a little tight, and I have to use blow-off tubes, especially for particularly active brews, but I can fit two Jerry's in my Kegerator for...

    Brew fridge

    Holy Crap. That looks cool. Kind of wish I'd picked up one of these instead of my Series 4 Kegerator!! Able to hold four full-size kegs and two half-size is insane. You should make a Kegerator version with this with a four or six tap font fiitted to the door.

    Awesome. I’ll do that this weekend. Thanks!

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Update: Moved the water line before the RO tank and after the 3 stage filter. Still doesn't look like there's enough water pressure to fill against 20-25 psi in the keg. 12V pump should come in the next few days, so I'll plumb that into the line where it 's setup now, before the RO tank. I...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Fortunately I was clever enough to put a one way valve in the line to prevent back flow. Also added a few rotary taps in the lines to aid maintenance so should be easy to adjust the plumbing. I’ll give it a go before the RO and see how that works. Have a 12v pump on its way so it’s available if...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Well looks like I spoke to soon with regard to my carbonation setup. Should have researched RO pressure tanks and water pressure a little more. Drew a glass of water this arvo and it sputtered out after half a glass -checked the keg in the fridge and it’s empty. The carb lid hasn’t been...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Fridge is set to about 2 or 3 degrees I think? The water is nicely cooled out of the tap, enough that visible frost forms on the metal surface of the filter tap as soon as the colder water reaches it. I suspect that the carbonation is being lost when it leaves the tap and hits the glass because...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I don't really have room for another bar fridge in the garage, nor do I really want to run yet another electrical appliance. If I did pick up another small fridge, I'd probably want to use it as a temp controlled brewing chamber for beer. So I pumped the pressure up to about 30 PSI, gave the...
