    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I'm just speculating, but I wonder if it has something to do with the chinese gov not subsidising the shipping to Aus. China is playing hardball with Australia at the moment, maybe it's time the gov here showed some balls and starts putting tariffs on Chinese imports.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I don't think it matters if it's a bit opaque, as long as you can see the water level whilst filling, it will do it's job. I'd imagine that once the mash starts and wort gets darker it will be even easier to see.

    5l mini keg question

    I fill my stainless 1litre drink bottles before I go out from my kegs. I don't even worry about gas just drink straight from the bottle. If you're going to drink it the same day it shouldn't be a problem. I wouldn't do it the day before though.

    I just spray some around the sides and inside the tap hole, before I screw it in, then put the lid on and swirl it all around to make sure it's all coated.

    Hi Darren. When you were using the chlorine you were using it once per bottle. A litre of mixed Starsan can be used to do all your bottles. I mix 1.5ml starsan in 1 litre of water. That bottle rinser that JD linked is what I used in the past then drained on a bottle tree. The liquid will remain...

    Bottling gun like this, https://www.kegland.com.au/bottle-filler-beer-gun.html Should work if you want to shut the flow off between bottles. The bottle wand is cheaper but it might not work if the liquid is under a bit of pressure. The gun can also purge with c02 before filling.

    Using an Air compressor to clean kegs/lines?

    I'd be interested if you get something that works. Like you mentioned I just use my bike pump to push cleaner and flush with water. Then just c02 when I'm flushing the sanitiser out the posts.

    ultratap or intertap? is there a difference?

    Can someone please explain what 'laminar flow' is? It started when the Ultratap was released. I'd love to know what this means and how it effects the pour. And before anyone thinks I'm having a go, I'm not, just curious how this is different/ better.

    Robobrew V3 vs Guten

    I used compression fittings. I couldn't get the hose clamps to seal properly. It was a while ago but I think the IC that came with my guten was 10mm pipe, which had something to do with the bit sealing properly. If the new ones come with a 12.5mm pipe hose clamps should work ok.
