    Free Bar Fridge - Sydney

    Fridge works fine. No shelves though...so it's probably more useful as a keg/ferment fridge. You can stagger 2x 9litre kegs in as is...or if you removed or bent the freezer box out of the way you could fit a full corny. Maybe would work with a small fermenter? No holes in outside. Lots of...

    3x Perlick Taps

    Still the 2x taps left (just the non flow controlled ones). Cheers for the beers Beersnob! They were delicious. Hope the tap is working for you.

    Recycling Yeast Cake

    Option 2 works. It's a bit risky but it has worked for this time poor brewer. Just watch out, either way....pitching with the cake will take off quicker and it's easy to get a slightly more vigorous ferment than you expect....... This was about 1/3 of the cake, repitching with a similar beer...

    3x Perlick Taps

    Not sure, 3 years? Bought from cheeky peak I beleive. There have been several series if perlicks with many different engravings. Good taps. I'm just trying to go all stainless, and the Intertape were cheaper.

    3x Perlick Taps

    I'll be in touch tomorrow. Your shank looks too short....but the stout sounds nice.

    3x Perlick Taps

    All work perfectly although at least 2.of them need new a new seal kit. 2x normal, 1x flowcontrol. Located in Caringbah. Or I work in the inner west. If picking up I would trade for long stainless steel shanks, some of your finest home brew (and the recipe ☺), or some Orval or Rodenbach...

    Brewing with Cascara

    Hey Brewers, I've just done a few batches of cascara for a work related thing. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffee_cherry_tea So it's delicious chilled and carbonated, is a fantastic use of what was formerly a waste product......and it contains sugar of some description: so I'm about to do...

    Kegerator Hire in Sydney?

    Does anybody know a company that hires kegerators in Syd? Single font is fine. One that will run Cornies NOT commercial kegs.

    Stout Carbonation (Keg)

    If you carb at high pressure.... absolutely make sure your lines are securely clamped on to your fittings. A blowout at that pressure is a spectacular way to cover your room in beer.

    Free bottles Sydney.

    Just found more.....some are swing tops. Grolsch, some flensburger and some 750ml swing tops too. 6xcrates worth total. So it's a mix of 350, 440 and 750ml swing tops and some crown seal 500ml and 750. Free. But you must take them all.

    Transfer from SS brew bucket to keg with liquid QD - fittings?

    I use a hose into the bottom of a co2 purged keg. Thought about putting a disconnect on and filling from the beer out post......but id probably have the lid off anyway so i can see how full the keg is....so I never bothered. There is more stuff to clean too. Blinddogs method above was what i...

    Craftbrewer Stock Update: Mashmaster Mill Hoppers

    The pop rivet idea is great. It is a bit fiddly to do without a mini socket set or a really small spanner. To the dude with no nuts....mine had heaps extra.....but i threw them in the bin. Sorry.
