    KegLand Questions and Answers

    How heavy were you thinking? It will be possible to hang stuff on the shelves. We are making some high strength shelves that are more heavy duty than your average fridge shelf. We have done this to take 50L fermenters/kegs for instance. As a result you should be able to hang a carcus or leg of...

    Sorry about that. I forgot to reply to this one. It's a bit too early to say right now but most likely we will have an API to allow further integration.

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    It's probably worth noting that the RAPT Fermentation Chamber also has an I2C plug on the main board and we have designed the top of the fridge with a track to run a wire into the fridge. The reason for this is so that a humidity controller can be installed and/or other devices such as dual...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    We have been thinking about having a feature in the software that will reduce humidity for food drying. In order to do this it would cycle the fan and cooling on so the water condenses on the evaporator and drip down into the collection tank at the bottom of the fridge. Then the heating would...

    We have a new RAPT gas controller device that will be able to measure volumetric gas that goes through the device. So this new device will primarily be used for carbonation, leak detection and can give you an indication of how much gas you have left in the CO2 cylinder. This is very much in the...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Yes it's funny that you mention this. The carbonation unit is coming along well. We are making small 2.8L keg sizes at the moment that fit into a domestic fridge more conveniently. This is the smallest keg we can manufacture that still uses the standard oval corny keg lid so you can use it...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Yes the only reason that we would want to make a slightly concentrated 15L is to save a little bit in shipping cost. For those of you in Melbourne probably no saving but if we ship these interstate it means if you are in QLD you will pay an extra $5 in shipping or something like that. One good...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    I must say we did not find the ball added any benefit and it cleans just as well without the ball. With that said we did not test with the Chronical Fermenter. When you cleaned the SS Brewtech Chronical did you try without the ball? How did the results compare?

    The chemical resistance of these flow meters is really good so I do not see that being an issue. We use similar type in our Fill O Meter and by the looks of the photo they are from the same factory. My only issue with these is that I dont feel they are that sanitary the way the flow meter is...

    We will most likely get this done eventually but it will be at least a few months. In the meantime you could use this to cover the current 4 tap font: https://www.kegland.com.au/insulating-neoprene-parka-jacket-cover-for-kegerator-tower-font-115mm-4-5-diameter-4-tap-font.html

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Sorry about this. I think I missed this one. We still have a lot of brass parts that are slightly higher priority like our MK4 regulators that are out of stock again so we have been trying to clear the huge number of orders for other core product lines which has been the issue. I think by late...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Yes that is probably ok but my only small gripe with these pumps is that they are often made from ABS and if you happen to accidentally get concentrated phosphoric acid or Stellarsan or Starsan on the pump it will dissolve the plastic. Also these types of pumps are not good for hot liquids and...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    It looks like we are going to change the software on these to save more battery power so we might have a small delay on the digital gauges. We really want to ensure that the battery lasts at least 6 months but with some changes to the software I think we can get the battery to last more than 1...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    To be honest I think the big issue we have here is that all the current CIP spray balls are really designed for large commercial tanks that are 1meter in diameter or larger. The issue is the spray ball design not really the pump. In larger breweries they would use a 300-1200watt pump for CIP...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Oh I see. That's quite strange. We have not used that company for 2 years now. We did use their third party logistic services in 2018 but now that the Noble Park warehouse is 4500 square meters we can squeeze everything into one location. It's strange that the bank still associates us with...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    The pickup orders and express orders go to the front of the que. If it's an order for delivery and express has not been selected then it's got a lower priority rating so it will be done once the pickup and express orders have been completed. We now have all of our stock held at Noble Park...

    Yes it's worth giving the pickup service a try if you are based locally. We have the guys picking and packing orders pretty much 7 days a week now so you do not have to wait long for it to be available. 90% of orders are picked and in a locker within 30min now.

    The Type 1 and Type 2 were not very popular but I will see what we can do about getting them back in again. If you guys are after some bulk generic fresh wort we could talk with a few breweries and see if we can make a generic batch of "base" fresh wort that you can alter into various recipes...

    We need to do some upgrades to our laser cutting machine here. The previous laser had some issues and was struggling with cutting the ply. We had some new toys that arrived today such as the new CO2 laser and also a new fibre cutting laser for cutting steel too. So we will also probably make...
