Any chance of getting in some bigger conical flasks? Your 5L one is much closer to 4L than 5L and is too small for a double batch lager.

I put a spare ispindel in the fridge in a simple container and it links to brewspy. I have a notification setup in case fridge temp rises or falls outside my preset range.

That is a fair point. I will look into this and see if we can get some larger sizes. From what I understand these are already getting close to the maximum we can source.

The only larger size of glass vessel we have now is these very large 23L ones:

I should say we have a large shipment of glass arriving soon like these ones above so at least the price will come down but i have not heard of people using these for yeast starters and they are not borosilicate so you cant put them onto a flame and boil in them.

Hey @KegLand-com-au , I posted on FB but didn't get a comment - it came up again yesterday - any thoughts on producing a similar product to the Plaato Keg? I think there is a bit of interest and can't imagine that they'd be too complicated to manufacture.

Also cheeky question - any ETA on the RAPT Pill? :)

Cheers

You said "copy" wrong 😂

Can't you just order a plaato keg? They have done all the hard yards in developing, designing and making the product.

haha I was being diplomatic.

Absolutely I could buy one - or three in my case - It'd just set me back ~$400AUD which I think is a bit pricey. I guess similar to the tilt / RAPT pill - I suspect the RAPT will be as good if not better and 1/5th the price... I might just suck it up and get the Plaato Keg, but...

Yes it's highly likely that we come up with a method of measuring how much beer you have in the kegs and link this to the RAPT portal. Using a load cell like the Plaato is relatively straight forward and it works abut we want to try and make other methods work first that are less cumbersome than load cells. The RAPT chamber is going to be released soon and also very shortly after the RAPT hydrometer and RAPT Temp Control Box then RAPT BrewZilla. Once all these are finished we will then focus on the RAPT gas controller or maybe the RAPT keg level checker but this will probably be in early 2022.

@KegLand-com-au did you guys test the bishop tap handles on a 3 tap tower font, with Nukataps that like to angle backwards a few degrees? They're too bulky and you end up with one of the 3 taps slightly open. I think they need to go back to the drawing board - they're far bulkier than they need to be. I've just wasted $60.

It is not that much of a novel solution, I built my own set before plaato did, it sends the data to my phone. People have been building WiFi enabled load cells for years, plaato doesn't own a monopoly on those.

On the Single, Double and Quad fonts the Bishop Tap Handles work fine. With the triple font you are right and it's a tight fit but normally we solve this by just tilting the left and right hand tap outwards sligthly.

This is super exciting! Do you think the new BrewZilla is still likely to come out this year? I am so keen to get into All Grain, but waiting for the new version.

Will the RAPT BrewZilla be bottom-draining / have CIP capability?
