    SS brewmaster or brew bucket?

    Sure is handy that's for sure, Got a 20lt BM, keg fridge and all the bits so replacing the old plastic fermenter was the last thing on the list (so far) :)

    SS brewmaster or brew bucket?

    A lot of great info thanks guys, I have emailed Andrew @ Full Pint to maybe change my order to the original brew bucket, thinking that might be the go as it will save me pulling an thing apart and cleaning/sanitizing when its not going to be a real bonus having. thanks :)

    Honey/Sweet Taste developing in finished beer

    Thanks heaps guys, a good bit of info.. I have a lot of times not sanitised keg and filter gear as i just soak in sodium percarbonate, rinse and store.. I thought that possibly it was some sort of bacteria or oxidation that produced this flavour and I was under the impression that if you didn't...

    Honey/Sweet Taste developing in finished beer

    Hi All, I have made couple of brews lately and due to my own fault I don't think the filter/keg and tubing was sanitised properly or at all and once filtered and kegged the beer tasted fresh, hoppy ext (although still very green) but once it has been sitting for a few weeks noticed that it was...

    Aeration - Is splashing into a fermenter enough?

    Thanks for all the great info, I was thinking of buying and airpump but sounds like its a waste if time and money, might be a good thing to try injecting o2 for my lagers, I have no real problem with other beer types but things like clean lagers / pilsners ect could be better

    Diptube flow restrictor for soda water keg?

    Not too sure how a poppet valve would make any difference, all kegs have them? I've got generic ones and original and seem the same to me. I might try the dip tube type restrictors as I can't lengthen my line without replace the whole line and the line that come with the font from CraftBrewer...

    Hi All, Brewed a green bullet lager with 100% pilsner malt and fermented out with S189 @ 12c, never seen anything like this with the head formation and the beer tastes and smells fine so i didn't think it was anything like an infection but im really not sure.. weird..

    Keg King Hops? Any Good?

    Hi Guys, Usually get my hops from Ellerslie Hop and was wondering what the Keg King hops are like? Being cheap I assume they are probably not all that great? But wanted to check what other brewers thoughts/experiences were? Cheers!

    Keg king / Kegmate kegerator fan mod?

    I wonder if I could just tap into the 12v that runs the small fan and use that supply to run a 80mm case fan? Would save having to run an external power supply and would keep things cold enough when just turning on with the fridge compressor?
