    Equipment For Sale 19l corny keg - unused -Notts - £35

    Hi all, I messed up on a recent malt miller order and got a 19l reconditioned corny keg. Problem being I needed a 12l one as 19 doesn't fit my kegerator! So... Rather than faff around with returning and getting a new one and the costs that'll incur, I'm going to cut my losses here and offer a...

    Ideas on how to use up this kit

    Cheers for that, I thought they looked ok for what I'm aiming for, will see how it turns out! Good point on the yeast, I use M54 for most of my lagers as saves space in my brew fridge and these will be fermenting at a fairly constant 19c

    Rumour? is Wilko's going into administration?

    Feels like only a matter of time, competition, online shopping and a poor expansion approach have all had a negative impact. In fact, within a 15 minute drive of my house, there are 4 Wilko's - Kimberley, Giltbrook, Sutton in Ashfield and Mansfield - and they're just the ones I know of!

    Favourite Kit

    Good to hear, have to admit I was a little surprised by the 100g dry hop for a pils but it tasted lovely yesterday. How long did you leave it to drink? While I can hold off on the kegs for a while, the 2l bottle once carbonated is going to be pretty tempting!

    Favourite Kit

    I can't recommend woodforde's Bure Gold enough, really enjoyed it and it's used all my willpower to save a 5l mini keg for Christmas. Had to put it under the stairs so I don't get tempted! However.. having just kegged a Festival New Zealand Pilsner - that's looking very very hopeful. Kegged it...

    Gone with the wheat - pilsner

    So.. I got a bit excited in the summer and decided to build a kegerator of sorts. Before I discovered clarity ferm, and because the girlfriend is coeliac, I opted to make my first brew a gluten free kit and opted for the gone with the wheat pilsner . A two can kit made from sorghum so no added...

    Simply pale ale

    My first kit back in home-brewing after 10ish years away so thought it worth doing a real basic kit to get back into cleaning, sanitising and brewing again. Fermented for 16 days with added 1kg of youngs beer enhancer and while I didn't take an OG reading, it ended up at 1010. Transferred to a...

    Woodforde's Bure Gold

    Having just polished off a load of this the past weekend I thought I'd post a review. Didn't add anything to the kit as new back into home-brewing after 10 or so years off and trying to ease my way back in for a few kits - but wow, this has been an absolutely lovely pint to drink. Fermentation...

    Newbie question - no beer coming out of kegs to taps

    Yeah, it's been quite a steep curve in all fairness, including a leak emptying my first CO2 canister but everything up and running now and will post properly once my first kegs are lagered and ready to serve. Thanks again.

    Newbie question - no beer coming out of kegs to taps

    So... A confession (I did say I was a newbie!). Turns out I'd followed the beer lines incorrectly and it was the wrong keg I was investigating 🤦😂 Having done exactly the same with the other keg, there was a blockage in the beer line right near the disconnect so trimmed 3/4 inches off the line...

    Newbie question - no beer coming out of kegs to taps

    I've just edited my post, apologies.. working my way up and it's something at the line/tap end, I just don't understand what could cause it not to push the beer up the line?

    Newbie question - no beer coming out of kegs to taps

    So.. the plot thickens. Still have issues but can identify where the issue is now. So I removed the beer out disconnect and swapped them over, everything still the same, have one tap doing a tiny bit and the other nothing. So then i Removed the disconnects and pushed down on the beer out...

    Newbie question - no beer coming out of kegs to taps

    They're at 2c according to my inkfish probe which is at the side of the keg... I hope they're not frozen 🤦

    Interesting, hadn't thought of trying that! Is this feasible to give a try? If so I'll do it later on..

    Newbie question - no beer coming out of kegs to taps

    Thanks, this is really useful, I do wonder if it's the tube that's blocked but because I didn't dry hop, I'd be relatively surprised. I'll get to the bottom of it one way or another!!
