    Yes you can use the cover while the fridge is running. If the ambient temperature is really hot you fold up the flaps on the side of the cover to allow the heat from the radiators dissipate heat more efficiently but generally it's not required.

    Except that your controller is in the base of the unit, where it is difficult to see and manipulate...wireless would fix that. As would a milk crate, but I'm still yet to find one...

    Yes the Rapt.io website is still relatively undeveloped. We really just needed a domain/address to access the app. The website really only has one purpose and that is to be a gateway to access the IOT hub where the data is logged but this is not publicly available until the products are released.

    Any chance of a photo of a prototype chamber? It sounds like a really interesting product.

    Sorry to be more specific I was thinking of the logic program of get to temp then timer commences and the ability to vary elements and pump flow by power input in %, would prefer WIFI over BT if there is a choice, told you I could be needy!!

    Sorry if it’s been posted already but are the dimensions available for the new all rounder fermenters?

    Nup, never had them blocked and I've freeballed 300g of dry hops in the 58L kegmenter. I do cold crash the hops out of suspension prior to anything else however.

    The pictures of the ones we have now are not accurate as we have already gone to make some changes to the injection moulded control panel on the front of the fridge. We previously went with option for one secondary regulator on the control panel of the fridge but now it's going to be options for 2 regulators. We are just about to finish the designs for this new injection moulded tooling and once this has been complete we will upload some CAD diagrams. This product will not be finished until some time next year. Do not have the date yet.

    Any indication on when the 35L brewzilla will be back in stock? Went to pull the trigger on an all grain setup yesterday!

    Yes I would normally leave the gas set at about 50psi. So with soda water I would recommend using a bit more beer line (about 4-6meters of 4mm ID) or use a flow control device like this one.

    The main thing is that you fill the chiller to a liquid level that covers the copper coils. With regards to glycol percentage we would normally recommend about 20% glycol would be sufficient. I think the tank holds about 20 liters or so going by memory so 1 x 5L bottle of glycol should be sufficient unless you want to go really cold in temp.

    So would you use less co2 with a carbonation cap fitted, refilling water at a constant 50psi as opposed to not having one and having to refill an empty keg and carb again at 50psi? Or would it mostly be the same?

    Yes absolutely its more efficient use of CO2 in that respect. If you are carbonating one keg at a time you end up throwing away a keg full of CO2 each time you empty the keg and fill with water. So if you are using the 19L Ball Lock kegs you will end up blowing off about 90-200 grams of CO2 to the atmosphere in this process. So with this carbonation lid you will have significantly reduced gas consumption when compared to batch carbonation of soda water.

    @KegLand-com-au I have a grand deluxe fridge. Just want to check there is nothing in the back wall of the fridge so I can screw mount my gas manifold inside the fridge?
