Wanted - Keggle

Looking for a 50lts keggle if anyone has one gathering dust? Ideally looking to run this from a standard domestic plug with sight tube. If not, any guides to building one?

Thanks

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Quick update What seemed to work was adding a wing nut close to the float ball which then held the beer in pipe under the surface of the beer. Some continued foaming, though this could be that i had to re-carb the beer with CO2. I'll check this later tonight as it will have had 24 hours to settle. A...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Thanks F00b4r Where did you get those from? Any dimensions i need to order? I've slightly altered the connection to the floating valve and gone for a 6.7mm ID tubing. All cleaned and santised, will look to add it to the corny this evening and see if i have any success. Otherwise, looks like it could...

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Thanks IPA

Let me check as i may already have some of this.

Any advice on cutting to length or will the weight help? Was thinking of weighting it down with some marbles in a small nylon mesh filter type bag.

Looks like the weight could be the issue.

Thanks again

Re: Floating dip tube for corny

Evening All I have added a couple of the Angel HomeBrew fermentasaurus floating dip tubes to a couple of Corny kegs. When the keg is full, they work perfectly, when the key gets to 1/2 full, i get a foaming issue. I de-pressurised the keg and opened it up to find the float onto but the with beer in ...

Re: Wilco's Mexican Lager kit

Hi Jocky It's at serving when i noticed this, once it has been under CO2 in the corny. I've ordered some standard brewing sugar so will give this a go this weekend. Also tempted to transfer to secondary fermenter after fermentation has finished (or should i leave it sitting on the yeast for a furthe...

I brewed this years ago (different kit and i can't remember the ingredients i used) and had good success, since i am back brewing, i've changed my kit and am now gettin...

Re: Brewing a lager using a kit, lager yeast and a brew fridge

Thanks WA Liking the summer pint idea, though i do need to crack the basics before getting adventurous. Issue in a thread above, getting a caramel taste to the beer. From reading here, it looks like the fermentation temp suggested 18-24 might be where i am going wrong. Looking at the following Looki...

Re: Brewing a lager using a kit, lager yeast and a brew fridge

great advice and schedule in the post, will almost certainly follow to avoid my poor results so far.

Any reason for doubling the yeast?

Thanks

Re: Caramel Taste to beer

May have gone slightly off topic here, does the below look ok? Just need to know fermentation temps as bulldog giving an 18-24 range which maybe causing my problems. Looking at two weeks to ferment (is 14 too high or should I go for 12)? Crash cool to 4 degrees for one week then transfer to the corn...
