    @KL

    Are the dual regulators you've got up on your website still planned to arrive on the 8th of September?

    How many are you getting in? It's certainly something I'd be interested in.

    Cheers,

    JD

    This is not something that has been recognised as an issue generally speaking. That's not so say it's not a good idea. Reducing oxygen exposure will always improve beer quality. Probably the easiest/cheapest way would be to remove the very small residual oxygen is using a sacrificial scavenger. This is often an oxidising reaction and normally done with a metallic element. It would be expensive to have a high pressure vessel to react the agent on the high pressure side. So it would make more sense to do this on the low pressure side (after the regulator). The only problem is if you have it on the low pressure side the reaction would have to take place fairly quickly as the gas would presumably be passing over this chamber quite fast, or alternatively have a substantially large chamber to house the reacting agent for long enough that the contact time would be sufficient.

    Can anyone else thing of any ideas on this topic? Would be keen to hear if someone has any good ideas for O2 scrubbing out there. Maybe a heated catalytic converter or something?

    Yes this date is still accurate. The main unknown variable is customs clearance time. We have allocated 1 day for customs clearance in the 8th September arrival date estimation.

    No worries at all. If you are looking for a quicker and better solution you may want to use one of these FOBS:

    A lot of you guys probably don't realise that we do sell these FOBs:
    https://www.kegland.com.au/fob-foam-on-beer-detector.html

    These FOBs (foam on beer detectors) are generally used in commercial pubs to prevent an empty keg blowing foam up long beer lines and wasting a lot of beer. They often can pay themselves off in 2 weeks so they are generally a good investment for pubs or bars.

    With that said these can also be used for pushing sanitiser from one keg to another and then cutting off the flow once the transfer is complete. It's probably a product you guys don't realise that this works well for this application. Would you like us to make a video on how to do this? This FOB is built for commercial application and is quite a heavy duty stainless unit. If we get a lot of request for this type of thing we could make a cheaper model for home brewers if you guys think you need a cheaper option.

    This solution obviously requires no power and makes pushing sanitiser from one keg to another really fast.

    @KegLand-com-au

    Where/when can I get the 0-15psi gauge? Are they push fit too?

    Thanks

    Can you post a video showing how this works? I'm not running a pub, but would be interested if theres' an advantage in terms of keeping O2 more easily out of my beers.

    Ok no worries. We will get a video on this and then upload it. Shouldn't take too long as this is a fairly simple video.

    Yes we will do this soon but closer to when the stock arrives. If we generate too much interest for the product before it comes in then customers tend to get annoyed because the product is out of stock. So I think in future we will should probably avoid talking too much about these products so long before they are released and then just start talking about the product around once we have the solid release date. This might be less frustrating for customers.

    The mill is still going to be released so you can rest assured that this is on the way and so is the video on this product too.

    Thanks for this link to the gauge. If you want a threaded one this will definitely do the job. We will also have a wider range of push in guages as an alternative too and these can be quite a bit faster and easier to use. At the moment we only have this 0-40 psi model but we do also have this same push in duotight compatible model in a 0-15psi and also a higher pressure one that will go up to about 100psi too.

    Hey Kegland. I have a small question about your oven thermometer. How does it turn off? Or if it doesn't, how long will it last turned on? I've been taking the batteries out after each brew day, but that seems a bit weird.

    These are coming along well. We have a few parts to this project.

    1. The physical fridge body with heating, colour screen, circuit boards, various injection moulded parts etc. This is 80% completed at this stage.
    2. The IOT Hub - This is the website that the fridges will connect to. This is 80% completed
    3. The firmware on the processor in the device - This is 60% completed

    It takes some time to design this stuff well so it can be upgraded down the track. Firstly so firmware updates work well but also so various other products can interface with the fermenting fridge later down the track. So we are also trying to forward thing several products to make after the fermenting fridge is completed but we don't really want to talk about this in too much detail just yet.

    Hey KL, which elements do you recommend using on the 65L brewzilla on a 10A circuit? The sizing looks a bit funny with 500W + 2000W exceeding a standard 2400W load on such a circuit, and 500W + 1000W well underpowered?

    Cheers,

    To be honest the BrewZilla 65L is really best used with the 15amp power socket so you can really get the most out of the brewery. It's difficult to do 50L boils with only 2400watts.

    As you have suggested you can use the 500w and the 1000 watt or alternatively you can use the 2000 watt on it's own.

    Another third option is that you can use this device:
    https://www.kegland.com.au/4000w-power-station-240v-power-controller.html

    Then you can plug the brewery into this. If you use the power station you can wind down the wattage to make it suitable for your 10amp wall socket. If you wanted to do this then you can buy this product so you can put the 15amp device into the 10amp wall socket https://www.bunnings.com.au/ampfibian-15a-to-10a-mini-d-i-y-power-adaptor_p7050104

    Please bear in mind that this device will trip the breaker as soon as you go over 10amps.

    So given how complicated and messy it is to run this unit on 10amp i would really highly recommend getting the 15amp GPO
