    Anyone bought the Nukatap faucets yet? Thoughts?

    @KegLand-com-au what is the thread in the robo/brewzilla malt pipe bottom screen - is it 3/8"?

    I'm looking for a threaded rod without the clip and slider, already have plenty of 1/2" pipe so I might just get a 1/2" reducer down to 3/8" if that will fit

    Are the Nukatap and Intertap spout threads the same?

    Has anyone ran natural gas through your 200MJ burner with success?

    The most efficient way to do this is to use tap water to chill down from 100C to about 40C. This can be done quite fast with tap water even in summer when your tap water is warmer. Then once at 50C I would then use the G20 to chill from 40C to 18C.

    The cost of water and the cost of power will probably end up being similar and the tap water will be faster for this initial temp drop. Then to chill from 50C to 18C the G20 Glycol Chiller will drop the temp from 40C to 18C in 2-3hrs. This would be the best way to do it.

    Thanks, are you talking through a CFC it will take 2-3hrs, or something like the temp twister?

    https://www.kegland.com.au/temp-twi...rol-your-fermzilla-with-a-glycol-chiller.html

    Did you calculate that out based on the compressor power and thermal energy of 50L of wort, or based on experience? E.g. is it purely a function of chilling capacity, or will increasing the chilling surface area improve this method?

    Thanks

    Yes this is calculated off the energy in the wort and 5% losses.

    If you increase the chilling surface area this will not make that much difference in this application. If your cooling liquid gets closer to liquid in the fermenter/boiler then having a larger surface area is more important but as the G20 will have a significant difference in the tank temperature it will still be quite efficient at absorbing the energy in the boiler.

    As this is a recirculating system the limiting factor is not so much the surface area of the coil it's just a matter of how fast the compressor/radiator/evaporator can keep up with the chilling process.

    sorry missed that one. The new Core Actuator Mini Regulator should have already been finished however the corona virus and CNY is causing some additional delays unfortunately. I think we will get this in about 1-2 months. So you might miss out for your camping trip unfortunately.

    Can I just point out how totally unacceptable this is? The only way you could know our password lengths is if our passwords were being stored in plaintext. Cryptographic hash functions produce a fixed-length output.

    Since you're handling our credit card numbers I expect you to follow very basic security mechanisms that even a high schooler would know to turn on.

    I think they mean: the password length required is now longer than it used to be
