    Keg King kegerator series 4

    Thanks for the reply. I’m happy with minor temp fluctuations in extreme conditions and that the compressor will run more on the odd extreme day. As long as the fridge life isn’t shortened or damaged that’s great!

    What are we supposed to do with the fridge when it’s in 50c ambient? Turn it off to prevent damage? Or just expect warmer beer?

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    If I was a phantom, do you think I’d be critical of my own product? It obviously is an issue and I’d hate to think how many dip tubes are like that out there. I don’t see this as positive advertisement. My American pale was kegged three days later than planned because of this. Annoying! I...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I would praise either mob if they treated me the way I was treated on the weekend, that’s my point.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    That’s exactly what it was. And I was one of those customers. I did a thread about it. And if you see the thread I wrote about it, you’ll see that I went down there, told them my issue and they were fantastic about it, swapped the dip tubes no problem and are going to resolve the issue and help...

    No dramas. Flat water test with co2 break out in the beer line will be a give away if the dip seal is good. Look for irregularities in the flange on the tube.

    UPDATE!! PROBLEM SOLVED!! Went in yesterday and explained problem with subject dip tubes. They were excellent and understanding and agreed that the machining on the dip tubes looked rough and were more than happy to swap them over. The difference in the flange finishing was obvious, the suspect...

    Keg drama

    Update. Swapped dip tube from a good keg and no bubbles. 100% a dip tube issue. Folks buying new kegs, do a water test and watch for bubbles. Going to get them swapped over and make them aware. A bad batch of dip tubes. On comparison, the working ones seem smoother and the flare on top is...

    Keg drama

    Thanks everyone. I’m definitely going to take it up. The kegs hold pressure but are only good for sanitiser at the moment! I don’t need three was out kegs! I’ll let you all know but I’m hoping it’s the dip tube.might pull on from a keg filled with beer and swap it over.

    Three of us that I know of that are having the same issue, we’ve all bought the same product recently from the same supplier so QA could be a thing. 5 kegs out of 10 when you combine it.

    Keg drama

    Thanks Mark. Already gone down that path, minus the Teflon tape. Changed o rings as I thought that’s the easiest and most obvious. The dip tube has ridges that slot into grooves on the keg itself to keep it aligned, it’s like they’re pressed. I’m thinking a machining problem to do with that on...

    Yup! Might have to look for a hole in the dip tubes! It’s definitely gas bypassing the liquid in the keg and finding itself in the line. That’s three people now.

    Keg drama

    i bought 4 new kegs recently and two are working brilliantly. The other two I’m finding I’m getting co2 break out in the lines immediately after pouring and foam at tap. Initially I thought I had an overcarbed beer, but I set and forget so I was surprised. However I’ve ran plain tap...

    Noob - help taking the next step...

    +2 Temp control...can use the fridge to cold crash after fermentation is complete too. That’ll help clean the beer up a bit too. I’d suggest, as well as asking questions, read up as much as you possibly can. Ive brewed for over 10 years, but I’m still learning as I go.

    A stolen idea.

    Sorry to hear about your wife mate. Wishing her and yourself all the best!
