    Help with kegs...

    Hi, Me and a mate recently bought these kegs off eBay on a whim for $100 and as we've both never used kegs before was wondering what we would need to do to them to get them in working order again? Perhaps it was a little foolish by us.... I thought the bodies of the kegs looked in reasonable...

    Thermoelectric (peltier) glycol chiller for flooded font

    My chest freezer based keggerator set up made a big leap forward yesterday with the acquisition of 2 4-tap flooded fonts. I always thought of flooding as a nice-to-have feature to help prevent foaming issues when pouring that first beer of a session, and never thought about getting the whole ice...

    Element for keg-based BIAB rig

    Having fully fleshed out a 3V gas fired rig over the last few years I now plan to create a second, more compact rig (and also just to experience another brewing method). My thoughts had turned to a single vessel BIAB system that was heated using both electricity and gas. The thought was to do...
