    New to kegging - question about gas leaks

    Yeah, you're not gonna get much evaporation through the lines...if you leave them full of Starsan, they'll still be full of starsan when you get back. That's not so much a problem. The common manifestation of this issue is what was being talked about earlier - using a spray bottle to check for...

    New to kegging - question about gas leaks

    This is a very real thing - the particular plastic Duotights are made from hates starsan. It's fine when concentrations are low (like properly made-up starsan in the lines) but if you let the water evaporate the higher acid concentration absolutely destroys the fitting. I'll see if I can dig up...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    The only regulator they stock that mounts directly to a Sodastream bottle is this one. It's a great option if you can get your hands on one! https://www.kegland.com.au/kegland-mini-regulator-sodastream-16g-bulb-compatible-the-fanginator.html Alternative: Alternatively you can use one of the...

    I expect they're using a buffer tank, you'd be waiting around the carpark for hours otherwise. Video posted on FB the other day shows a pretty decent flow rate (probably have to be a member of the "KegLand Home Brew Community Group" to view)...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    The pH of the mash ends up dominated by the buffering effects of various things in it anyway, the source water pH has a very small effect. Pull up your water calculator of choice, pop in a recipe, and fiddle with just the water pH. You'll see what I mean.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    A lot of the Brewers Hardware gear has the "wrong" (mostly NPT) fittings, so perhaps it would be better to pursue a partnership/licensing arrangement rather than actually importing their stuff. If @KegLand-com-au did bring in their stuff perhaps the Tri-clover versions would be better.

    Temperature Controlled Conical - Options?

    Not on the Brewtech Uni, but I carbonate in primary all the time on my kegmenter - usually by spunding the last few points of fermentation. This does require the vessel to take nearly 2 bar of pressure, while the Brewtech Uni seems to recommend 15 psi (roughly 1 bar) operating pressure so I...

    I found your reply confusing at the time...I thought you misunderstood, but no, I see now that you just quoted my post to talk about something else 🤷‍♂️ All good, carry on!

    The original discussion was about the In-Line Regulator, not the BlowTie...I'm really not sure how we ended up on this sidetrack.

    Dry hopping - what is correct?

    They also contain diastase enzymes, so they can promote some further conversion of complex sugars and starches into a simple, yeast-digestible sugars. I've seen this drop FG by 1-3 points on IPAs.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    It's a bit different when CP are selling a KL wholesale product.... I've found the adjustment gets quite "notchy" around the low end of the scale - even at ~10psi I find it hard to get it dialed in without it jumping 3-5 psi at a time. You might be able to persuade it down to 2psi or so with a...

    Your own description talks about laundry taps ;)

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Every place I've ever lived has had 3/4" laundry taps...I think the hookup on the washing machine side might be 1/2" but that seems like it would be a super awkward spot for a diverter valve.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Fair, but I can think of reasons they'd want to keep the bore open (for example, if you wanted to use it as a hop dosing port, that would be marginally more likely to succeed at 3/4" than at 1/2") and they're very unlikely to make this part in two sizes

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Kegland do stock a stainless 3/4" to 1/2" reducing bushing, so if they built a PCO ball valve with 3/4" BSP it wouldn't be too hard to adapt to the common 1/2" brewery fittings.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    The RAPT fridge has never had a delivery date, though? And they've been pretty clear in this thread that it's still in development. It would be helpful if the website distinguished between "Upcoming" (i.e. has never yet been in stock) and "Out of stock". It would also be helpful if the "new...
