    I calibrated my KK4 when it arrived. It was 1C out - running too cold. Normal setting is in the 6-8C range depending on what beers I'm serving. Most of the time the fan is off. I leave the fan on for the first day or so after putting a warm keg in. If I know I will be serving beers to guests, I'll put on the fan an hour or so beforehand. It's not critical, but it can help reduce foaming when there is a 5-10 minute gap between the beers you pour. Basically, if the lines get warm, then CO2 will come out of solution in the warm beer and contribute foam until this is cleared and the lines cool down again. By having the fan on and cooling the lines and font, this becomes less of a problem.

    Especially if your KK is in a living area such as a dining room that's kept pretty warm all year round.

    Everything bar the taps, with the price war cranking up the taps could end up cheap too.;)

    I would recommend a manifold. I don’t have one yet (will buy soon). I just set it up with the T- splitters and it’s manageable but a bit messy. Plus moving clamped lines around does make me a little nervous of pulling something too hard and creating a leak.

    Never hurts to ask, price wars need ammo.

    Best tip I can give is don't gamble. 'Even a fool can make money, only a wise man can keep it'.;)

    Partially correct. According to Facebook it's this weekend. Includes everything but the font and taps.

    "Christmas" the band seems to sum up these incessant posting behaviours and it's not only aimed at WEAL.

    I actually run two lines from two ball posts on the outside so I can connect two regulators (a normal one and a Soda Stream or a Nitro bottle) then on the inside I run I T piece so I can gas 3 kegs.

    When you go to the site and actually price everything needed including lines, clamps, tap handles tap accessories etc, it comes to about the same price as a fully setup Kegorator

    Yeah I didn't go to the effort of doing that but was wondering if that might be the case.

    Suck a lot of people in though I would imagine.
