    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I thought this probably couldn't be the case after reading my own message! I had only looked for a calibration in the captive portal of the device (like calibrating the pill) however I now see that in the menus of the device itself there is a 2-point calibration available.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I have the temp controller and a pill connected via bluetooth. I don't use the temp probe cable at all, the temp it reports seems WAY off (by like 2.5 degrees) and there is no way to correct it. Pretty annoying! The pill can report the temp itself and if you pair it with the controller then you...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    @KegLand-com-au I have both a Rapt Pill and the Temperature controller. Correct me if I'm wrong, I seem to remember in one of the videos there was talk of creating the temperature profile steps based on the gravity from the pill rather than simply a time interval. I can't find this functionality...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    @KegLand-com-au have you considered adding a quiet fan option for the kegerators? I put one of the "silent" 16Db computer fans in my old series 4 and I can hardly hear it compared to the 39Db it shipped with. It has a bit less airflow than the original, but my wife kept turning the old fan off...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Hi Kegland, I would like to upgrade from a series 4 kegerator to a series X, or X plus, in order to get a fourth keg to hold water. I currently have a largish fridge for cold crashing and am downsizing (one of the kids wants to use the brewing room for a bedroom!) so I plan to repurpose the...

    I think the problem I see with this thread, and the other KL Q&A is that they have become pretty partisan to a few people, but most people just don't care and to us it looks like school kids trolling and spamming, generally wasting everyones time. When I was reading the Q&A thread I remember...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I just had a page open for the "Mini 360 Core Actuator Regulator" and sure enough the review is the same as one on Amazon for a different product. I don't even think this one has been sold yet. Pretty sure when KL are back Monday morning those zany web developers are going to be taking the...

    I'd like to give an update on this now it's in the keg. I think in general it has worked very well, the beer has a good bright colour which to me indicates it has not had any significant oxygen exposure. The transfer to the secondary AR was pretty painless and I managed to do a closed transfer...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    There is a pic on the KL website showing how it can be placed on the keg. I think if you had some keg where the disconnects were closer to the center then it wouldn't work, but I thought most corny kegs followed a similar layout.

    It's a little tricky but you fiddle about with it you can get both of the posts to sit in the gaps in the stand and the corny will sit on the stand properly.

    I have purchased a second all-rounder with the intention of setting up the dry hop in it and using the co2 of the ferment to purge the secondary. I waited until the ferment had been going a little before adding the hops into the secondary to minimize the o2 contact as much as practical, but I...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I don't think KL are being intentionally deceptive here, but the default picture should probably be of the product and not the product with a bunch of other things attached. This has caught me a few times, now I know to go read the description, then read the description again more carefully...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    @KegLand-com-au what tubing do I need for this: NUKATAP Push In Growler Spout Attachment and am I able to get it in a reasonable length (instead of metres of it).

    I think this is the confusion. I'm not using it as a short cut, I have no ability to temperature control the beer because I don't have the available space. I'm using the FZ to mitigate the effects by suppressing esters. I also like that it carbonates my beer somewhat, as I dislike exchanging...

    I have a FZ but dislike using it because of the valve cleaning. I have two all-rounders and next ferment I plan to ferment in one and run the co2 into the second (empty) one which will have the spunding valve attached. Towards the end of the ferment I will quickly open the top of the second...

    Not everyone is out to make an award winning beer every time. I imagine a few people pressure ferment to get some co2 dissolved in the ferment, and to suppress some esters that happen due to a lack of temperature control (e.g. when you are fermenting being a door at ambient). I've done a 5 day...

    I've tried putting hop pellets down the bottle cap sized holes of the FZ lid and they have needed a lot of "encouragement" to get through! They definitely didn't just flow through. I can't see them making their way past that ball valve, but I wish you luck. Why not just put the hops in the FZ...

    @theSeekerr I appreciate the write up, I did think the headspace of the FZ would contribute somewhat but I didn't expect it to add so much CO2. I normally cold crash for 2-3 days due to life getting in the way of brewing, so that explains the PSI readings I see. I serve a bit warmer and flatter...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Not much, usually less than 1PSI but it will depend on the valve. I had a couple of the duotight ones in my kegerator setup when I had a keg of water in there and I didn't adjust any pressures. If you are worried it is easy enough to test, wait until you have a known reading then put the valve...

    I use this chart, and as I read it 12PSI gives me ~1.5 volumes of CO2 at 20C, which works out to ~1PSI at 2C. I am happy to be corrected if I am reading the chart wrong, however I pressure ferment at 10PSI at around 20C, and when I cold crash the FZ to 2C my gauge goes down to 2/3PSI. I have...
