    Ferminator/Peltier Chamber

    I secure the temp probe to the side of my vessels with some blu tack and then some highdensity foam insulation ( from sleeping mat ) on top of this held on with a bungee although a belt or strap would be better as the bungee cuts in a fair bit, I suppose I should use a bit of harder plastic on...

    So frustrating....

    @Stevieboy Several of us agree with you , as per post of @Buffers brewery and @Nottsbeer and @RoomWithABrew The best the PTFE tape achieves is it makes it easier to tighten the lid down onto a well lubricated Oring hopefully to sit on a nice smooth keg rim.

    So frustrating....

    @DonnyOwl Progress which is good news. Yes I think it's a good plan of yours to fill the KK and then put some gas in. As we have mentioned a gauge, or a corney bulkhead gas post and gauge really useful. I'd get a gauge that works in the 0 to 15 psi range it'll be more accurate. Other advantage...

    Ispindel leaking!!

    Not a design I've seen before, I assume you mean the sled can rotate and is slightly loose inside the tube, putting some tape on the sides of the sled trimmed narrower should make it snug. I have marked the top of the inside of my tubes with a pen so that I can put it back in the same...

    Ispindel leaking!!

    Didn't think so, and couldn't see how the weights would have stayed on.

    Ispindel leaking!!

    I've reread your post, you aren't sticking the weights on the outside of the tube are you? You shouldn't get any leaks really with it on a non pressure ferment. I have torture tested some of mine with 35psi before the orring addition and only had that one fill and sink. Also send a picture of...

    So frustrating....

    Agree, lid the likely culprit. Check the top of barrel that the oring sits on is nice and smooth, no nicks, cracks in the neck of the barrel or lumps on it. If lumps sticking up it needs paring smooth with stanley knife ( not likely that you'll find this problem though ). Take the O ring out...

    Lalbrew London..again

    You can't get clearer than that. I just finished my barrel the other day of 5 points and this was the last pint. Will be using the hop missile as a hop back next brew.

    Ispindel leaking!!

    Send us a picture of your spindel, sled / pcb, not just a case of what weight but where is the weight.

    Priming after pressure fermentation.

    Use this calculator to work out how many vols you have before you start https://drhansbrewery.com/beercarbonationcalculator/ then use this calculator to work out how much sugar you need to add to each bottle. https://www.brewersfriend.com/beer-priming-calculator/ Should get you bang on target.

    You can always put a pump on later, the gen 1 ad 2 robobrew had no pump and I think the anvil system has an external pump. Don't wait for the next best thing it may still only be bread. A lot of kegland stuff goes to market and then get's tweaked to a decent product after returns, complaints...

    Ispindel leaking!!

    Okay don't panic been there done that but no T shirt. Shouldn't need to buy another tube. Is it out of shape from really hot water or damaged in some way? I have had several with small leaks as you mention and some ferments the spindel kept going others it stopped, all with pressure ferments...

    So frustrating....

    @Stevieboy agree but do it via a post so you can sterilise it nicely. I had an infection with a gauge fitted directly onto the top of the keg lid which was how I bought it.

    So frustrating....

    @DonnyOwl Very frustrating, did the beer go sour and then you dumped it? That really does suggest a leak and oxygen got in. Do read the thread that @Buffers brewery mentions it may also link to this one as well Buffers Brewery Pressure Barrel “Bung” I must be one of the lucky ones picked my...

    Pressure Fermenting Time

    @m_kc The float is the issue as you say too big for the opening on those mini kegs. I've been on the lookout for a " plastic " cork as these sanitise well and float and would be the right size. Trouble is seems they are now out of vogue for wine it's unscrew or a real cork and I'm not so keen...
