    Thanks @KegLand-com-au. So what’s the recommendation for setting the power controller if doing HG or high % beers, 80%?

    Considering there could be 2 elements required to get a good boil in a 50l keg will dropping the power down still get the desired result?

    Because you're effectively cutting the surface watt density for each element, you'll still boil, it'll just take longer (as long as you're not lowering it too far)

    I can attest to the pre-2016 Keg King elements causing fires - I never had an issue personally but have witnessed (in person or photos) two brewers have this problem, and read the dozens of reports of faults on this site.

    I have been using post-2016 KK elements in my 1V BIAB double batch rig for mash, boil and kettle sours. I have had no issues with using them.

    My old went off with a spectacular bang and quite a large arc/flame
    Unfortunately when I contacted KK (this was pre Kegland by a year or so) I was told I could bring it into the shop for a replacement if it was in warranty...

    Any word on tri clamp fittings? Looking for a butterfly valve and fittings to go with it.

    @KegLand-com-au Any chance on disposable oxygen and a regulator to suit in the next few weeks?

    Hi,

    Do you have the dimensions for the Fermentasaurus v2 27L version? I'm looking to purchase a new fermentation chamber/fridge and I want to make sure it's the correct size for when the new fermenters are released later in the year.

    Thanks,
    Tom.

    This is really hard to say. If you use high watt density you will probably find you get some caramilisation. This could actually be a desirable thing if that is what you are trying to do but generally speaking its not what you are looking for. So reducing the wattage in the boiler might be a good idea. It's something you will have to experiment with and continue to reduce the wattage until you get the desired results. Are you using these elements:
    https://www.kegland.com.au/2200-watt-stainless-steel-heating-element.html

    If you are using these elements you will still get a good rolling boil with two of these elements at 75% power.

    We are bringing in a larger range of tr-clover fittings and we will have more available on the website soon includding butterfly valves. I dont have an exact date but definitely this is a priority for us.

    Any chance of 2" triclamp cap to 1/2" male threaded adapters?
    Essentially this but in 2" (for clamping to kegs) https://www.kegland.com.au/1-5-inch-tri-clover-with-1-2-inch-bsp.html
    There is only 1 supplier on Aliexpress and they're pretty darn expensive for what they are (about twice what I'd expect to pay for them)
    I've tossed up getting in the end caps and threaded pipe to braze up a dozen or so myself, but if you'd be able to get them in for only a few dollars more than your 1.5" ones, it wouldn't be worth the effort
