    Is the top malt screen and the overflow cone you have as spare parts for the gen 3 compatable with gen 2? Ive either misplaced the damn things somewhere or had too many beers one brewday and thrown them away with the spent grain!

    Thanks for that. We are looking into this now and will do more investigation. The foil seals are heat sealed on using induction. This heat seal uses no glue and it's a HDPE coated foil that melts and seals against the HDPE bottle so it should not be possible for the glue to dissolve. It is possible that the seal perhaps was not good perhaps so we will look into this and do some testing on some more bottles that we have in stock. It generally has not presented itself as an issue so far with the units that we have dispatched however you can never be too safer and the phosphoric acid is quite problematic if it get onto other stuff. It will heat through many other plastics, soft metals and other products.

    Yes this part is identical and compatible with the Gen 2 units. If you need these they are located here on the website:

    No this is not 100% correct. All flow control taps will have limitations on how much pressure can be absorbed by the flow control mechanism and still pour beer well. With the Genuine Intertap FC taps (not the counterfeit ones sold by KK at the moment) they are suitable to absorb 85kpa in the flow control mechanism. If you are trying to absorb more than this you can start to get more turbulance and this can cause foaming issues. So it's still a good idea to take up some of the resistance in the line if you are dispensing with more than 85kpa.

    In my opinion I dont really like using the flow control taps. You really can't beat the Intertap SS taps. You will always get a better pour if you take up the resistance in the line rather than right at the point of dispence at the low pressure end of your system. I know it's really convenient to be able to control the flow rate at the tap end but it's important to remember this is the low pressure end of the system and even small amounts of turbulence at the low pressure end will cause issues with foaming. The Intertap SS taps have always poured with more laminar flow, less parts to clean/lubricate and if you just use a resonable length of beer line or use the smaller 4mm ID beer line then you will get enough flow resistance not to have to bother with FC taps.

    Agreed, I have 3 intertaps ss 1 is fc and I don't use it. Actually I want to get another ss and replace it. Might offload it or use it on my party keg setup. Great tap the intertap ss

    Yes the top malt screen is the same for both models.

    I should say we have been looking to make a new design of ball lock disconnect that will have the flow control mechanism in the ball lock disconnect. By using this flow control device at this high pressure end it can tolerate much more turbulance without causing an issue so it's a better place for a flow control mechanism to be implemented. This is only at a conceptual stage but I feel like this could be the best possible solution. Then just use the standard Intertap SS taps at the tap end.

    Good evening Keglandians,
    Quick question. Do you have plans of having a High Pressure LPG burner in your inventory in the near future?
    Cheers
    Ben

    That's a great idea! I have something similar in mind but it uses existing products because I don't have an engineering department so I kinda have to MacGyver it.

    Yes we have LPG gas burners that should be arriving at the end of June. With that said most of our customers seem to be going electric these days. Personally if you are building a brewery i think it's hard to go past these stick elements:
    https://www.kegland.com.au/2200-watt-stainless-steel-heating-element.html

    We had some issues with this design when they were first made however they have now been significantly improved so they are really very reliable now and you will probably find them cheaper than LPG to run.

    Home brewing is all about "MacGyver'ing". So if you have any tips on how other customers can also make something up please share on the forum.

    Just saw the mini kegs have been added to the store. Not going to mention the competition but your prices are game changing.
