    Grainfather or BrewZilla?

    Brewzilla 65 can definitely do a 50 litre batch (and up to 14-15kg grain at a pinch). You aim for 55ish from mash and use some fermcap for boil over prevention.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I‘ll look on my video for the drop and dash. On the actual question can we get a delivery note option? It’s on their con note but blank.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    KL can you get a way to put a delivery note in when choosing Direct freight? I’ve had my second extremely disappointing experience. First one they left on the front mat - effectively on the street. The second one I put a delivery instruction in the company field and their driver pulled up then...

    Fermzilla

    I think I found my all rounder leak! The lid is molded and there was a little fillet at the mold join that runs through the o ring channel and creates a little void behind the o-ring that gas can get around. Photo below is after I removed the worst of the fillet. I then put some lube in the...

    Fermzilla

    I’ve got a 50 litre from kking and a 58 litre from kland and used a 60 litre all rounder for the first yesterday. Why the all rounder? It’s so wonderfully light and you can see where the float is. I’ve had a few brews where you think you’re done and discover 5 litres of beer in the bottom. It...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    The all stainless ones are so wonderfully over-engineered they could serve dual purpose as knuckle dusters, nuclear bomb containment devices etc. They have the satisfying heft and “clunk”of a classic car...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    It’s one heck of a brite tank and way cheaper than (kind of) equivalent SS brewtech. I’m trying to go smaller otherwise...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I have replaced some perfectly ok ultratap FCs with nukataps. Got rid of the hollow pours I was annoyed with! I’m running the fc disconnects so fc taps was unnecessary. Also confirm the spouts are interchangable (as advertised). Now looking at the grand deluxe 3 door to replace my ancient 3...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Yes. Had three nukataps delivered today. Hadn’t realised it had a “plastic” shuttle but not an issue.nice to see there is a seal kit though. Swapped a FC tap out for one and it pours quite nicely. Hollow pours had been an issue but not anymore..

    Alcohol prices up

    It was a masterful bit of spin from the pub lobby. The GST would be higher component of price. I had forgotten the weird tiered excise with <8 litre containers getting hit for around $50 a litre.

    Kegmenter transfer techniques

    I have a similar issue and thought it was the tube collapsing. However it doesn’t “collapse” when pouring with a short hose as it fairly gushes out. I use a long bit of line for kegging so I don’t have to move the fermenter and I’m pretty sure the restriction in the transfer hose is what slows...

    Large Mytton Grosvenor kegs

    I’ve got two. They are good kegs. The disconnects are 1/2” and a bit fiddly if they aren’t sealing. They are 45 litres and tall/thin so fit in some fridges easier than 50s.

    Try the connection to the gas bottle. I had a little scratch on the white washer that was enough for slow leak.

    65 litre RoboBrew Thread

    I’ve got mine on a diy trolley with a pulley on an overhead bar. It makes for a lot less excitement.

    65 litre RoboBrew Thread

    It might not be a big lift but it’s an awkward lift with the wet grain plus a fairly slow drain making it quite a bit more than 16kg. I may just be soft though.

    Going BIG. What are your techniques to push your system’s capacity?

    I did 45 from a 30ish litre Grainfather that way until upsizing. No issue I could see. If you want a safe boil near capacity then use fermcaps to control boil overs. Don’t get too adventurous on the levels till you see how it works. On my brewzilla with fermcaps it still wells up by 5cm with...
