    Is this including the mini regs that you currently sell?

    Ahhh there ya go, first you want to shoot the messenger, and now you make assumptions. It is apparent that f00b4r and I are not the only people on this planet with an aversion to subscription business models.To pay good money to buy and own a piece of hardware yet not own and have to pay rent for the software that runs it is a nonsense, sure some will do it but a lot will not, are you listening yet? or do you listen and not hear? I repeat "a lot of people will NOT!" @Kegland please read the peterudo post and take note. @beercoder I do not have a job I am a self funded retiree, I talked to my employer the payer of my periodic salary (me) and it was decided that you are more than welcome to come to my place of employment (home) and imbibe as much goods as you are able to totally free of charge. My business model may not increase my net worth, but it does put a smile on a lot of faces. cheers G

    I had a faulty Mark4 regulator. I called them, they sent me a post paid sticker by Email and a replacement regulator arrived before I had a chance to mail the faulty one back. Great service, never had a problem with KL.

    It's great to see people interested in the project whether you are willing to pay for a subscription or not. Before this goes on too far, I'd like to provide Kegland with the respect they deserve and not hijack their thread any further than this conversation has to date, so I'll leave this last note and look at opening a new Brewgenuity thread in the future. If you'd like to discuss the project further, please PM me.

    I appreciate everyone's feedback regarding open source however I am a software developer and have been working in IT for over 20 years and am well versed on the subject of open source business models. I understand the pros to open source with community contributions etc. That being said, this project isn't really designed for your everyday home brewer. It is meant for nano/micro breweries and perhaps home brewers who like to go over the top with their setup. It requires backend infrastructure as it is designed to provide multiple people with remote access to the data (recipes, inventory, batches, fermentations, product production etc.). It is more than just a brewery controller like CBPi/BrewPi - it is an entire brewery management platform that fulfills all the record keeping requirements of the ATO with regards to beer manufacturing.

    Now lets keep this thread focused on Kegland and their amazing products...

    Question for Kegland.
    Who's idea was it, to place a large banner advertising Kegland on the premises formerly owned by keg king?
    Just across the road,

    I believe the idea came from weal, he posted about people paying thousands for stands at expo's and their competitiors handing out flyers at the entrance to those stands and paying nothing. All's fair in love and boardrooms ;)

    Its important to get facts right, KK and KL owned both buildings and being as they were on seperate titles they were sold as that KK bought one and KL the other both identical and KL paid more for theirs than KK paid for theirs. It would have made better business sense for KL to havepurchased the both properties and gone head to head opposite each other, but facing a 7 million dollar lawsuit maybe its better to keep some money aside for the money grabbing palms of the legal representitives.

    I noticed on one of the Facebook pages that at least a couple of people have recently had faulty new kegs from KK.. dip tubes not machined correctly or something. Imagine my shock that the infallible KK have supplied shonky goods!! I’ll be alerting Interpol post haste

    So if this is the case, whose business plan was it, to turn an asset, producing a return, into a sign board carrying overhead?

    I think you might find if you bothered to check the CEO of KK came after the split.

    [{ Pulled the quote as I'm cleaning up this thread and making back to KL thread.}
    Why can't KK compete? They seem to doing ok and have a pretty good following?

    That’s exactly what it was. And I was one of those customers. I did a thread about it.

    And if you see the thread I wrote about it, you’ll see that I went down there, told them my issue and they were fantastic about it, swapped the dip tubes no problem and are going to resolve the issue and help anyone else who has a drama. I was thanked for letting them know about it.

    Sure it was a little annoying that I had problems with my kegs, but I’ve also had dramas with expensive appliances such as tvs, furniture, cars. That’s life! It happens.

    They were great. I left happy. You must be the luckiest bloke on earth never to have an issue with anything you’ve ever bought in your life. Sometimes it’s not about the problem, but what a supplier will do when something’s wrong.

    I don’t care for this KK and KL drama in the slightest. I’m not a fan boy of anyone like you make it sound. But they were great about it, and others who need to take a dip tube back need to know they were great about it and they won’t walk into an argument.

    What I have a problem with is you using my experience to fuel your vendetta and twisting it to suit yourself. Once again, I don’t care for this soap opera, my friend.

    What I do care for, is what KK or KL or whoever it is, have to say about their products. I’m interested in what KL have to say in this thread, I’m also interested in what KK have to say in theirs.

    It’s just a little hard to hear with all this noise.

    My post was tongue in cheek based on others running KL down for having products which have experienced issues. I agree with your sentiment however
