    Sanke Kegs

    Darren that pump is specced for driving spray balls for cleaning fermenters, it's wayyyy over powered for cleaning kegs. I'm not sure what the necessary specs are - @MHB would probably know - but mine needs to be throttled right back while cleaning two kegs at once, so don't feel like that pump...

    Sanke Kegs

    No, as mentioned a few times in your thread about converting one into a pressure fermenter, they're designed to be cleaned in place (CIP) without dismantling. You'll need a pump, a coupler that won't be tied up on your dispense system, hoses, and a means of heating cleaning fluids. My build can...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Is this product going to be tied exclusively to your rapt ecosystem or will it be accessible to other third-party systems like craftbeerpi, brewfather, brewblox etc?

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    I bought some of the DSI couplers from keg services and also some of the KL ones and the latter are fine, don't think I'd bother paying the premium for DSI if/when I need more. So I'd suggest saving cash on the couplers and spend on the kegs instead if you see the cost/benefit there. The KL...

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    Looks like the KL version has come down in price a bit so the difference is more than it was when I purchased from KS, there's pretty significant differences in warranty and pressure rating as well though.

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    You can flick them an email for a quote/price, they get back to you pretty quickly but from memory the 10s and 20s were about $135-140 each. Good shipping rates too, about $10/keg. The 20L A-type plus coupler (connected) needs about 675 mm vertical (don't quote me on that - it's "about" ;) ).

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    Yeah I've gone A-type for the reason you mention. Plenty of smaller versions, I'm running 20L and 10L A-type kegs (Blefa, via Keg Services, no affiliation etc.). At least one of the Keg-somethings stocks 20L kegs with choice of A/D-type spears too, but I decided to go German quality for a...

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    That's the ticket! Thought I'd seen something that would do the job, forgot about that specific one though. I'm going the other way personally, trying to get rid of ball locks from my brewery.

    Pressure Fermenting in CUB Ball lock keg

    Remove the spear with one of the tools linked above, and (try to) find a 2" tri clamp approximation of the 4" tri clamp kegmenter lids as sold by one or both of the Keg-somethings. "Tri clamp yeast brink" as a Google search term might bring up something useful, you're looking for a 2" tri clamp...

    Dodgy Digiboil Wiring?

    Haha no worries mate 👍

    Dodgy Digiboil Wiring?

    Excuse me? I'm just offering a second data point that mine is arranged identically to the OP - ie it's not a one-off. I'm also confirming as I stated that the elements are switched on the negative sides on mine, as per his.

    Dodgy Digiboil Wiring?

    Mine looks identical to @Grok's, 65L Digiboil purchased in April 2020. There's a mess of errors in there, black wires connected to live (brown from mains) terminals, live wires going to terminals labelled "N", element switches on the neutral lines. The line powering the control board is switched...

    Dodgy Digiboil Wiring?

    OT, where do you have your pump drawing from?

    Dodgy Digiboil Wiring?

    Mine's the same as yours @Grok, and I agree with your interpretation that the live is common into the elements and individual switches on the neutral lines. Not an electrician, take with a grain of salt...

    Dodgy Digiboil Wiring?

    I'll have a look at mine tonight. Looks like they've got the live and neutral wires from the mains plug arse-about. Have you had it running yet?

    Pressure rated stainless fermenter.

    Hopefully not too many (see: SS Brewtech)

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    If it's 100L struck capacity you could just about get away with 2 X 2400W/10A elements in separate circuits, which I think is what Brewtools have done. It'll take a while, but should get there. If it's 100L of finished beer then 6.5kW is about the right number. That could be done with a triple...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Right you are, I did mental back of the envelope after like a thousand Festbiers and assumed that the answer was 25A, but yes 27-ish does round up to 32A indeed 😂. But yeah, you don't just get to unplug your toaster to free up the outlet for a 100L brewery.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Huh? What's the difference between asking your sparky to install a 3-phase outlet vs a 25A single-phase outlet? Except some houses don't actually have access to 3-phase of course. But either way, you're not driving a 100L kettle off a 10A outlet, or even two 10A outlets if you want to enjoy the...

    Keg King Conversation- Back On AHB

    Also are the 20L A-types bag-in-keg or using standard spears?
