Re: King Keg pressure leak or not?

In addition to alexlark's good advice, give the large O ring what fits into the cap a smear of petroleum jelly before fitting it, that will help to ensure a good seal. It is also normal for the brew to absorb the co2, especially if there's a drop in the room temperature. It's also a wise move to cha...

Re: First Time Winemaker - Oak Timings

From memory of brewing Beaverdale/Selection wine kits, add the oak chip sachets at the same time as the yeast.

Re: King keg pressure vavle

Unfortunately its brand new I got caught out with this years ago, it's recommended to change them about every 6 months. Trouble is, you don't know how long the seals have been on the valve & they can "stretch" over time. I had similar issues before with a new barrel & valve & a new set of seals fix...

Re: King keg pressure vavle

You may need a new set of valve seals, sounds like they could be split, or stretched if they've been on for a while.

Is there a method for fitting? Very difficult but I managed it but unfortunately put a small rip in the bottom but it still seemed a good seal.
Soften them in warm water, much easier to slide them over the screw threads.

Re: DIY boiler - safety?

I've got to be honest here, I wouldn't consider using a fermenting bin for a boiler, I don't consider them up to the job.

Re: Rotokeg/BeerSphere Spares

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I'd be very surprised if there's any of those oval shaped rubber seals on the market now. A friend of mine had those barrels himself about 10 years ago & couldn't find any replacements.

Re: Wilkinson’s 4inch pressure barrel

If it's a new barrel, the valve seals may have been on for a while, and stretched. I got caught out with that with a new King Keg many years ago, a full new set of valve seals cured it.
