    Thanks for letting us know. We have just updated the listing. This hose is 1.8meters. If you dont mind me asking what are you using it for? Do you want to mount your regulator to your wall?

    I was wondering the same after seeing a post from K.K showing a pic of huge piles of new stock of these, and my local supplier in Perth (which I know gets supplies from K.K) announcing they now had new stock of them.

    Don't think I would be forking out money to lawyers over the trademark, stupid name anyway, sounds like something an 8 year old would think up.

    Regarding your new mini kegs, it might be a good idea to add the max working pressure (45 psi) to the description, so that people understand they are not rated the same as the ball lock premium kegs which are 130 psi. I will be placing an order for 1 when they arrive.

    Yes the name is pretty strange. Maybe they were going with something so stupid because that would remind people?

    Yes we did then later add the 1.8meter to the description so it's correct now.

    Yes that is a good point. We will change that on the website. It will also be printed on the outside of the kegs too when the stock arrives.

    I seem to be a bit of a serial fridge killer. Three times I have made the same mistake - I look at the indestructible old bangers on Gumtree which look like they're made of old soviet tractor parts, then a sale comes along and I think "hey, for a hundred bucks more I can get a brand new fridge from the Lucky Golden Dragon Revelotionary Refrigeration Concern" (or similar previously unheard of Chinese company). After about five years, they have all suffered the same fate - I notice that they are running non-stop and struggling to maintain temperature.

    Of course, it costs more to fix than it does to replace and I find myself wondering when did white goods become disposable items?

    Can you tell me a little bit about your fridges and why I can expect better durability? I haven't heard any horror stories about the old KK kegerators dying young, which gives me some comfort that you guys are better at picking the balance between price and quality than I have been!

    Basically everything they have in stock is at 'sale' prices all the time. (eg. A new keg is about $160 at a normal homebrew shop).

    A full list for a 2 keg setup is:
    1 x CO2 Bottle https://www.kegland.com.au/co2-gas-cylinders-2-6kg-full.html
    1 x Gas regulator https://www.kegland.com.au/mk-ii-dual-gauge-multi-gas-regulator.html
    1 x Tee piece splitter or a gas manifold https://www.kegland.com.au/stainless-steel-tee-6mm-barb.html or https://www.kegland.com.au/2-output-2-way-gas-line-manifold-splitter-with-check-valves.html
    2 x Keg https://www.kegland.com.au/19l-ball-lock-keg-brand-new-553.html
    2 x Gas keg quick disconnect (there are cheaper ones and more expensive but this is the standard one) https://www.kegland.com.au/premium-plastic-ball-lock-disconnect-grey-gas-barb.html
    2 x Liquid keg quick disconnect (there are cheaper ones and more expensive but this is the standard one) https://www.kegland.com.au/premium-plastic-ball-lock-disconnect-black-liquid-barb.html
    2 x Picnic taps https://www.kegland.com.au/bronco-picnic-party-tap.html
    10 x Clamps (4 for disconnects, 2 for party taps, 1 for regulator, 3 for tee/manifold) (Kegland only have a 20 pack) https://www.kegland.com.au/x20-ss-line-clamp-suits-7-10mm-od-line.html

    4/5mm ID beer line (suits both gas and liquid - probably don't need 12m) https://www.kegland.com.au/evabarrier-4mm-x-8mm-double-wall-eva-12meter-roll-in-bag.html

    And amazingly everything above is in stock currently.

    We did have some small issues with the lid on the previous growlers that we used to sell so we are changing this design and then they will be back in stock in about 6 weeks.

    Please also remember to remove your picnic taps before you force carbonate (if you force carbonate) The picnic taps are cheap but do not hold much pressure and the tops can blow off if you get over about 20psi. I personally think the pluto guns are a better option but they are more expensive.

    Personally I would disconnect the liquid disconnect from the keg no matter what it is connected to if force carbonating. Nothing will ruin your day more than 19 litres of liquid gold on the floor/walls/ceiling.

    What length do you suggest making the beer line in a kegland kegerator with the EVABARRIER 4MM X 8MM DOUBLE WALL BEER LINE / GAS LINE.

    Hey Greg58. Good to get this question. The 4mm ID beer line is the way to go in my opinion. So firstly we would have to say this is the right choice but pleae be prepared to struggle a little getting this onto the tight barbs of your ball lock disconnects and tap shanks. If you are struggling the 4mm ID over the tight 6.5mm OD Barbs that are on the disconnects i would suggest you watch this video:



    With regarsd to line lengths with the 4mm ID you really want about 1.5meters. It will depend a little on how warm/cold you like your beer and how fast you want to pur.

    Most commercial venues want to fill pints fast as time is money so in a commercial bar you should aim for about 400ml per 10 seconds. If you are a domestic user perhaps you dont need such a fast flow speed and about 250-350ml per 10 seconds might be better for you.

    The Intertap taps should pour well with the standard 10mm ID spout with a flow rate between about 200-400ml/10 seconds and about 1.5 meters will work well for this.

    Definitely it's better to take up the flow resistance in the beer line rather than the flow control taps. You will always get better laminar flow with the standard Intertap SS design.
