    Mini Keg Growler EOI

    Here you go, pic of adapters. The thread tape was my attempt at stopping leaks, along with lube on the seal. Also note the rust on the screw heads, it is all cheap Chinese after all.

    Not sure mate, the adapters I got were to fit a 16g and a 74g.

    It's the exact same head, yes.

    The dip tube that comes with these is just a piece of soft silicon hose, it goes brown after the first fill. You could easily swap it out for anything else. I've got the same reg and it works fine, although a bit of keg lube on the seal would possibly help it from leaking the soda bulb empty...

    The supplier I sent you details of has those caps. But like I said, you may as well buy a 9L corny. If you're after something smaller, then Craftbrewer already has everything you need for around $100. Only difference is it comes as a 2L stainless growler with reg and tap, instead of a...

    These were the issues that I was talking about. A better reg won't fix the issue (I actually had a better reg), it's more to do with balancing. I had the same thing - fiddle around and you can get a decent pour, but then the pressure needed for that ends up causing foaming once you've left it...

    Mini Keg Growler EOI

    Here you go. I've had a few messages asking for more pics and thoughts on different ways to set up the unit. To be honest, the problem with these portable setups is the lack of balancing and back pressure. So you can try what you like with different taps, different flow restrictors, different...

    Mini Keg Growler EOI

    I'm not sure that would help. The plastic flow restrictor is a round piece of plastic that has some holes down the side, which only cause turbulence. Although maybe you could remove it and use a tap with flow control? They're a standard fitting, so a flow control perlick would fit. I'll take...

    I didn't as I my order was under the threshold, but if I had placed that larger order (for which the prices were quoted) I most certainly would have.

    I should also say that I'm not trying to do ikegger out of a sale nor stop any of you guys from buying from China, I'm just wanting everyone to know what I didn't before I ordered mine. I think the novelty of these things alone makes them a fun toy to have, but don't expect to be able to take it...

    Mini Keg Growler EOI

    I believe the supplier that I got mine off is the same supplier that ikegger.com got theirs from. Comparing pics, the one I have is identical in design (both the screw-in fitting and the tap), only the reg is different as I opted for one with more control. They're the only ones that I could...

    Mini Keg Growler EOI

    I imported a few of these about 6 months ago, for myself and a few mates. I made a small order to begin with, planning to buy more if the quality was good. Unfortunately, as nice as they looked, there were a few issues. They claim they're 304 stainless, however all of them started rusting...

    MillMaster Mini Mill slow after adjusting gap

    Here's a pic of the old and new rollers side by side. New one on the left. You can see the flat spot on the top of the knurling on the old one on the right where it wasn't cut deep enough.

    MillMaster Mini Mill slow after adjusting gap

    I got my new rollers in the mail and will be testing them out this weekend. But you can definitely see the knurling on the old rollers isn't as deep as these new ones.

    FYI - already received a response to my email (on a Sunday) from Mashmaster - and they're more than happy to help out. That's great customer service.

    MillMaster Mini Mill slow after adjusting gap

    Email sent! Never realised Mashmaster were in Brisbane! I hope mine is one of the dodgy batches, so I can finally get it working properly! (and then tell all those people I told not to buy a MM to maybe go out and get one now!)

    MillMaster Mini Mill slow after adjusting gap

    I've got the same problem and don't believe it's the knurling as mine's been doing it since day one. I thought that's just how they were and have been running grain through twice. I might contact MM now that I know that some people have no issue with them.
