    KegLand Questions and Answers

    +1 would buy hot fillable fermenter. I could imagine dumping my chillers, cubes and kegs. Go straight from Braumeister into fermzilla sitting in keezer. Ferment then connect to taps to serve. Maybe an inline filter between fermzilla and tap. No more transfers or lifting with my bad back. One...

    Stick to a style or jump around ?

    Brew what you like to drink but can't buy a satisfactory version of. I like to drink Vienna lager, Kolsch, Doppelbock. I prefer my version of these styles over what I can buy.

    9 day or 5 Week Primary - Help!

    As a new brewer, I wouldn't be cutting it close when the outcome could result in bottle bombs. Keg it or use pet bottles now or glass bottle when you get back.

    Bottling direct from a fermentasaurus

    I've bottled from the fermentasaurus by using the pressure kit to push beer through a filter then onto a bottling wand. You have to use gentle pressure otherwise the wand will fly off.

    Beer Can Sealer.

    KK - 'Fermentasaurus' conical PET fermenter

    I think CPBF is more a PITA than natural carbonation. The only reason you should do it is if you're bottling from a keg. If bottle filling is slow, then use a bit of CO2 to move it along.

    Looking for red millet in Melbourne

    I know someone from Nepal who wants to get into homebrewing here. I'm looking for red millet.
