    Are there a video or photos of the MaltZilla (in action would be good)

    I have to agree with the noise issue - it's my only complaint on an otherwise great system.

    We are a bit reluctant to give too much away about this product until it's officially released.

    As long as you don't leave it more than about 4-5 days after you get the notification email that it's back in stock then you should be fine. Please also make sure to look at the instruction sheet that has been uploaded here:

    Is it just me or does the instruction pdf have a few errors in it?
    It looks like you are using liquid disconnects for the gas and gas disconnects for the water out to tap?

    No problem. Just wasn't sure if I was reading it wrongly

    The main source of noise on the Series 4 is definitely NOT the fan. The evaporator/refrigerant is very noisy. It cannot be put in a living area of the house it is so loud.

    I regret buying the Series 4 simply because it is too loud.

    I sort of agree and sort of dont. The fridge part running is louder than the fan but mine certainly isnt too loud to put in the living room.

    Also another user asked earlier about a "blank series x" i.e. just the fridge no font, taps etc. but Kegland didnt really answer the question. I would certainly be interested in one just to fit the extra keg and would be happy to swap over the hardware and re purpose the series 4 as a second ferment fridge. So will we be able to buy just the fridge?

    I would tend to agree, the fridge is too loud to be placed somewhere you'll notice it like a lounge while watching movies etc. But what is the alternative? not including d.i.y'ing your own or spending more money on a grand deluxe or other commercial style fridge.

    I am not sure we can complain with the prices.. I am sure there was a day in the not so distant past that the three tap series IV I bought recently would have been twice the cost and I wouldn't have bought one.

    take the good with the bad

    So with the carbonation cap, are you recommending to run 4mm ID line directly from a mains tap to the quick disconnect (obviously with a inline regulator)? Can you recommend common attachments to achieve this from the tap end?

    It's not a particularly elegant solution. Lets say we sold this part for $25 but then you can get our current three tap for $34.95 it's only $10 more to get a whole new font. Do you think it would still be your preferred option?

    We have been finding it difficult to keep the New Series X Kegerator in Stock. We have one last shipment before Christmas and I think this will sell out fairly quickly. As we have not had enough stock to sell as kits with taps etc we have not stated selling them on their own. As you can see in this link we have a base kit that includes regulator. Probably by Jan we will also start selling the naked kegerator without regulator too so people like yourself can upgrade an older Series 4 too.

    Sounds like s**t (hop matter, trub) under the diaphragm, undo 4 philips head screws, dismantle and clean, takes 5 mins, there is a vid showing you how to do it. Cheers G

    The fridge is certainly value for money. There's no argument there. The noise just seems like such an obvious design flaw that should be improved.

    It's a balancing act, equipment using new environmentally friendly refrigerants are inherently noisier than the old stuff, making them quieter costs money, additionally fridges are traditionally not kept next to the telly, so noise levels appropriate to a kitchen may be obtrusive in a lounge room. My old Smeg fermenting fridge is almost silent just a faint hum, the brand new replacement can be heard in an adjacent room, such is the price of progress.

    Yes. All KegLand Ball Lock Kegs have always had a clip under the lid to hold things like the hop tube.
