    KegLand Questions and Answers

    haha I was being diplomatic. Absolutely I could buy one - or three in my case - It'd just set me back ~$400AUD which I think is a bit pricey. I guess similar to the tilt / RAPT pill - I suspect the RAPT will be as good if not better and 1/5th the price... I might just suck it up and get the...

    KegLand Questions and Answers

    Hey @KegLand-com-au , I posted on FB but didn't get a comment - it came up again yesterday - any thoughts on producing a similar product to the Plaato Keg? I think there is a bit of interest and can't imagine that they'd be too complicated to manufacture. Also cheeky question - any ETA on the...

    [MEL] Certified Cicerone Study group

    Hi All, Just got my Certified Beer Server and want to push myself a little further to get my Certified Cicerone qualification. I think it would be easier to study with a mate, potentially could split the cost of things like tasting beers or an off flavour kit etc. Putting the feelers out...

    Decent new world pils?

    Can't think of a pils - but similar style - the 2 Brothers Kung foo lager is pretty delicious for the style. Generally wouldn't touch a pils / lager - but highly rate this one.

    Stuck at 1020

    Hey Wombat, give the fermenter a good shake or two - the temperature you're fermenting at seems quite high - usually I try to keep it below 24 degrees. You may have killed off some (or all) of the yeast. If you can get the temperature down to 18-20 and have some spare yeast - maybe throw it in...

    Gravity Increase?

    What about temperature difference? As in was one reading taken when it was significantly warmer than the other?

    I'm really enjoying Sail and Anchor IPA... very tasty

    NYE brew day .... first brew day ever

    The only concern I'd have is by splitting a brew for secondary ferment into two containers - I'd be worried one will end up with more yeast than the other. Happy to be corrected by a more weathered brewer though :)

    A Return to Kits

    Great read guys - am on my journey brewing at the moment only doing kits (convenience, experience and time) and the theme I'm picking up is temperature control your primary ferment. Looks like I'm up for a controller and a fermentation fridge!

    FREE - Empty 3L Tapking Bottles + 2 x Tapking Dispensers - about 40 bo

    Hey Mate, I too had a tap king dispenser and was disappointed when they pulled it; if you drop the Lion team an email ( they'll ship you out a return post bag and then send you a $30 prepaid visa card per dispenser. Cheers

    Breweries that fill kegs

    Howdy All, Came up over a brew the other night - should one be short on time / too lazy / looking for something different - has anyone heard of a brewery filling a 19L keg? If so which and how much. Particularly keen on the Melbourne breweries Cheers Andrew

    Kegging Setups

    What about lifting up the freezer? Put a drawer or stand or something underneath it - doubles as storage :)

    U Brew It

    Beer for beer - yes I'd agree, but I usually drink a lot more of them :) One criticism that I would offer is that there is little to differentiate the beers in the way of flavour... they alll seem to have a 'ubrewit' taste :)

    U Brew It

    Perhaps my mistake as to the cause - however - the no hangovers is tried, tested and accurate :)

    U Brew It

    Bit of a thread revival here - I've been to the UbrewIt in tullamarine (victoria) a few times and the beer has been drinkable. Its a bit of fun to get out with the boys and have a few beers while making more. Not the cheapest - but gives a good overview of the process... One thing I've noticed...

    G'day from Melbourne

    Cheers Guys, sounds like a bit of fun. If I can't make this one - i'll make an effort to get to the next one. Awesome to know we have an active local community.

    G'day from Melbourne

    Cheers Yob, I'm out west! I like to tinker, but I am also a bit of a perfectionist - so would rather just buy a kegerator for the 'polished' look. Have already upgraded my preferred option - with feedback suggesting that the chrome taps won't last that long. Already have one eye on the for...

    Kit & kilo = low ABV?

    The kit was the standard coopers one - i think its Coopers Original Ale? with brew enhancer #1... I'm worried if i bottle it - there will still be a bit to go and i'll end up with a bottle explosion. Will measure it again tonight.
