  3. When the Beerdroid has gone into the keg mode a message will display on the units screen “move to storage” press that and away you go. cheers
  4. You can do it manually on Beerdroid unit or it will go automatically to store mode after 2 days when it’s in the ready to keg mode. Is your droid in a good position, distance for the wifi modem link? Do you have same issue with other wifi connections?
  5. Thanks Mark, Now it just drops in out from the wifi. Also can you put the droid into storage mode from the droid? Or is that only available from the app? Regards Brendan
  6. Liam will send you a new plug. The new ones are a bit shorter and stub bier but seem to work better

  9. Hi fellow Fermentist, no one responded but a few active here now. How have things been going? Still with Ikegger gear? Cheers Mark.
  10. Hi Mark, How does one go about joining the coopers club to obtain even a few more $$ savings? Is it as simple as creating an account? Cheers Terry
  11. Sorry for late reply and hope your problem is resolved. If not, try turning your modem off and then on again to reset. Has worked for others. Your droid operation will not be effected by the wifi outage so in that respect don’t be concerned. Let us know how you got on. Cheers Mark
  12. Hi Mark, Thanks and I shall grab some keg lube when next at the LBS. I keep forgetting to put it on my list but it is on there now. Cheers Terry
  13. I have done the Citra recipe before in a conventional fermenter and it is a refreshing drop and you can enjoy a few without having to go to bed early.🥳 On the tap and the drain plug I put keg lube each time for ease of insertion and removal. It also helps to seal. Liam will certainly help you out with replacement. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com.au%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F292600956220 It is food safe. (Should also be able to get from local brew shop)
  14. Hi Mark, I might have to try that one myself - not only sounds like it will be a refreshing drop but also mid-range alcohol %. On a side not I am just kegging the Irish Red and notice the droid drain plug has deteriorated further - to the point and a slow dripping leak. Out with the plumbing tape and I might drop Liam an email and ask about purchasing a few spares. Cheers Terry
  15. 16/9/19 after kegging a Deutsch Lager have put down a what I call a Citra Australian Pale Ale. 1/2 tin Coopers Australian Pale Ale 250g light dry malt extract 13g Citra hop, pellet infused tea for 30min. ( you may say “why 13g?” - that’s what fell out of the packet onto the scales, not far off 10g 🤫) kit yeast (all of it) Dry hop 20g Citra pellets in about 5 days. Leave for the 2 days of “ready to keg” mode. Note: only 250gm of the malt as I wanted a mid range ale of about 3.8 to 4% alcohol. A nice spring/summer quaffing Ale. Will report in due cause when consumption has begun.🍻 Cheers Mark.
  16. Kegged this today after a 10 day fermentation period. Kegged to a 10l “holding” ss keg for maturing purposes. Will then do a sealed keg to keg transfer when wanting to consume 🍺. Will report at that time.
  17. I didn’t know you went to storage mode so Liam’s advice is correct. As you have chilled the beer thus cleaning up and settling yeast etc and ceasing any fermentation, if using liquid hop I wouldn’t bother waiting a couple of days at fermentation temperature. Just add to the kegs or if half and half add to the keg, fill, add to remaining 5 litres and then bottle. Reason, no difference in result whether the hops sit in the droid or in your keg due to the chilling process. Cheers Mark
  18. When I get to EOF, I actually let my kegs sit at ready to keg for a couple of days, then let them go to storage for 3-4 days so that they can produce a clearer beer by flocculating the yeast. What I was doing was putting the hops in before it went into storage which with a liquid hops tends to give it too long before kegging...a couple of days would be far better than what I was doing. After chatting with Liam what I am now doing is the same method but putting the hops in when I kick it back out of storage, then giving it a day or so at kegging temp, which on my quick amount of research has shown to be getting the more hops flavour I was looking for. I reckon I am a good 3 or so months away from tasting beers to know whether I want to do something along the lines of a tea to boost the bitterness but yeah, I'll cross that bridge when I get to it and hopefully have a bit of a better idea of what I am looking for. What I will say though is the consistency of the head on the beer was just spot on from first pour to the last but what you saw in my picture ( albeit with a swig already out of it, so the beer wasn't to the top as it was poured) is exactly what I got every pint. I have found previously that the last pint or two have had a reduced head but the consistency on this brew was just perfect
  19. It would certainly appears that you enjoyed this brew but mentioned (as an aside) that “more hops would have been sweet.....”. I suspect you added at kegging time so next time try at fermentation end and leave for the two days in keg mode. Or would you add another sachet of the H4? Or just leave it and do what you did again?
  20. My BeerDroid will not connect to Wifi anymore and wouldn't connect to the app aswell. But as I'm typing this my app has now connected to the droid, but the droid still has no wifi; although it was briefly on last night. I have a brew on at the moment so this is becoming very frustrating! Any help would be kindly appreciated.
  21. From the first pint til the last, this has been a very good keg of beer, bit more hops would have been sweet but yeah, 13 pints of deliciousness
  22. There you go, lighter in colour already. Must also have picked up settled hop material in the first two pours.
  23. Did some research to find that dry hopping can change the colour of brew particularly if original is light in colour, change darker, usually to amber. However over time the particles of hop will settle out and the beer colour will lighten if not to what it should be. Makes sense with this brew 1) as only been kegged for 4 weeks and in the fridge to chill for a couple of days. 2) taste profile fits fairly well to what is stated.
  24. Oh yeah, like I don't feel like I am "stuck" with my system, it works well. I have read so many complaints about the flo and I just think " not here, works a treat". It has it's disadvantages but for me, it is worth it
