    FS: 100L SS keg - Melbourne

    That engraving is just a burst disc, all new kegs have them as a weak point in case they are over pressurised.

    Selling beer brewed offsite - Nano-brewery start-ups in Qld

    Basically you are looking for a contract brewer to brew your beer for you until you get setup, they will pay the excise for you and sell the beer to you wholesale. You will need your own wholesale licence to then on sell the beer to licenced venues. 200L is way too small for a startup, there...

    C02 Tassie?

    Plenty of options, Chubb fire will do fills, as will Brew by You in Launceston, and im sure they will also do fills from their Hobart store. I should be able to do fills from my bulk tank in a few weeks if you run out of options.

    Wort Chiller Just Ain't Chillin

    I wouldn't use automotive glycol under any circumstances (ethylene glycol), you should use a food grade polypropylene glycol in case of accidental leaks and ingestion. Not really that hard to come by.

    Wort Chiller Just Ain't Chillin

    Really cant believe I just read through this thread. Knockout of 540L of wort to 23 degrees takes about 15 minutes on my 7m3 plate chiller, I end up with about 600L of 65 degree hot water in the HLT. I can knock out heaps faster by increasing both coolant and product flow, to a point, the...

    More on the beer duopoly in Australia

    Demand away, we have been doing this for years, as long as the government is making money off us nothing will change. As a microbrewer, its nice to be hopeful about excise reform, but in the mean time we just have to get on with it.

    Flow issues with magic box - nothing seems to work

    I doubt the coils are 3mm ID, most are 5mm at least. A coil is normally 10-16 meters or so long and a fair bit of pressure is needed to push beer through, try 30psi and see what happens. of course at this pressure and with cold kegs you will eventually over carbonate if using co2, hence the need...

    Whats In The Glass (commercial)

    If they aren't hard to brew, why are there so many bad examples on the market at the moment? Some of the brewers out there really need to start thinking about balance in their beers, a properly balanced beer is so much more enjoyable to drink.
