    Wonder when it was the 'competitor' launched? may explain why they got a new supplier? Possibly from necessity rather than need. @FarsideOfCrazy they have enough keg issues with cracked dip tubes in their new kegs so cut them some slack!

    I had one, only used it once, the mesh is to fine and doesn't utilise the hops. I don't know if there are plans for a better alternative seems to be a few complaints about the KL and KK hop spiders.

    Looked to me that Bushbear was just letting KK know of a potential problem, and not asking for a refund. KL do still use those kegs so he was pointed in the right direction for a replacement.

    Doesn't matter whats on the side of the keg, the point is a spare can be had from KL, as stated KK do not stock those kegs any longer so cannot help Bushbear.

    From what I've witnessed all lids are universal. I have 5 kegs made by different manufacturer and all lids are the same spec.

    Are you actually serious about this, or just having a lend?

    Maybe they are the same maybe they are not, I think the way I would have approached the issue is go back to the retailer, show him the problem and let him deal with it. Remember there was a lot of those 9.5 litre cornie kegs from that manufacturer were being returned with pin hole leaks on the bottom weld may have been a thread on it. Could be possible there may be some of those were stripped and the keg dumped. Let the retailer deal with the problem.

    Is that the best you can do?
    I think the pillock is the one who didn't read that the keg was bought from a store in Maitland therefore making that store the retailer and KK the wholesaler.

    I think this post nails it, correct procedure, take goods back to from where they were purchased, any warranty issues, if any, get sorted from there. Seeing as Bushbear stated he only got into kegging 8 months ago I would be asking for a proof of purchase.
    Also it would be better not to respond to posts who are devout KL fans trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Just assimilate them along with all the chickens who think Colonel Sanders is a great guy.

    @Keg King How do you tighten the spunding valves onto the ball lock connectors? Do you just use thread sealant? Ive noticed when its fully tight the gauge is facing downwards

    Usually the threading works for getting the gauge to come all the way around, but when it doesn't you can just use a 1/4 Nylon Flare Washer Olive for MFL Fittings (part 9074). Works a treat.

    Fermenter King Junior is now the world's most affordable 20L pressure fermenter and keg.

    Junior comes from the same tank mold as our King Kegs but utilises the clear PET material of our 35L and 60L Fermenter King Unitanks.

    Just in time for the holidays!

    Any updates on the g3 fermenter king upgrade kits for the fermentasaurus ? Are they in a container somewhere or are they still being manufactured ? I’m still running the gen 1 and very keen to get rid of the old valve !

    Does the Guten 40L have a timer so that its possible to set a temperature for the mash the night before and be it at temp at a specific time the next day ready to mash in?
    Also is it good practice to pump cooled wort from the Guten to the fermenter using the onboard pump?
