I found one listing for $9,999 USD.. I guess you could but that??Hey Keg Land people here are waiting on the Fermentasaurus 2, how come it is being sold on Alibaba?
I'm interested to know this too. 500ml cans don't really interest me, and I'd personally prefer cans with standard openings. So I'd really only consider getting the canning machine if I knew I could do standard 375ml cans with it. This comment is likely to be unpopular, but I just don't like the "big gulp" openings.Will alternative dies be available for different cans, allowing owners to obtain cans from other suppliers?
To be fair it was $9,999 for 10, I did inquire and was told that it was that price while out of stock.I found one listing for $9,999 USD.. I guess you could but that??
It’s no secret they source this stuff from China and I’m pretty sure China does whatever the fudge they want!
I was not knocking them and I am very grateful for what they are doing in the market (see the last line of my post) and I'm very interested in canning, hence what I think are relevent questions.Come on guys give them a break, it isn't a community service, at the end of the day they have to make a profit. Otherwise the investors who have forked out probably $2 to 3 million could have left it in a secure investment attract a 5%+ profit with no risk. They have to have a 20 to 30% net return on their investment minimum.
It was for an odd number of cans, but definitely 200+ (maybe 217?)
If you dont mind me asking you guys if you could choose between purchasing:
375mL cans and paying about $50 for 200 cans
500ml cans and paying about $55 per 200 cans
which option would you prefer? Clearly the larger cans have lower packaging cost per litre but the 375ml cans are the more common size. We cant stock both. We will either go one or the other.
The other option is:
1. Full aperture can that will cost $0.05 more per can
2. Normal can with normal sized opening
Are these valves able to be adjusted? i.e. set it to 60% or just fully open & closed? You can put an inline regulator behind it to give a set pressure but it would be nice to be able to vary valve flow rates from the control panel.Thanks for that. We have just updated that product. Thanks for letting us know. This is a direct acting solenoid valve so it's able to control the flow right down to 0psi. We are going to use this particular solenoid valve in some new gas monitoring and flow control stuff that we are working on which is the reason why we are stocking it at the moment.
So this isn't really suitable for gravity filling either?Thanks for that. The flashing on the ball is fine. I am quite confident the problem you have is that you do not have enough of a pressure differential over the float valve. Once you have a bit more of a pressure difference on both sides of the red silicone float you will get the float push quite hard against the seat where it seals and the pressure will make it seal.
We do not have 12mm (1/2) inch duotight fittings yet but we have been talking about extending the range to some larger sizes like this. It's pretty unusual to have a need to go from 12mm to an FFl thread so I doubt we will make the fittings to do this in one connection. If we do have this as a solution in the future it would be a 12mm (1/2" reducer) that reduces down to 9.5mm (3/8") and then onto the FFL fitting.The Duotight descriptions kinds confuse me - is there a duotight to reduce a 12mm line (which fits over the plastic fermenter taps) down to 8mm od size? Or alternatively 12mm to a ffl (to screw onto a disconnect)?
Also, website wise, a 'remember me' button might be worthwhile including.
Thanks for that. Was just about to say the same thing.This one?
*edit* Scroll down, the button is below the description in the full O2 kit
Yeah these are actually good for mains water pressure too. So on my sink I have attached a ball lock post on the sink like this:
Then under the sink i use an inline regulator to reduce the pressure to about 20psi. This is really handy for filling up kegs. cleaning our beer lines etc.
We had no plans to offer this item as some customers found the watt density to be too high for this application and it could scorch the wort especially if there was not enough movement around the element. We have been working on a new design that uses a relatively new type of carbon filament element that will have much lower watt density but this is also a long way from being finished. Also due to the popularity of the single vessel breweries like the BrewZilla, Grainfather, or Braumeister this makes it even less attractive to make these components for making your own brewery as it's been a bit of a shrinking market recently.Howdy, I'm wondering if you guys will do a RIMS stick similar to what keg King stock https://www.kegking.com.au/catalog/product/view/id/184/s/rims-heat-stick-heat-exchanger-housing/category/1
The size of the box is larger than before. As you have pointed out we now have 237 cans per box. It's a bit of an odd number as we make the box so it can fit the lids as well as the cans. I would imagine that eventually once enough machines are out in circulation you guys would probably start to do bulk buys of cans and purchase a whole pallet at a time. If we don't have to package the cans in boxes this will certainly save some money.
