  1. Same container as those I'm my storage picture in the "keg storage" thread?
  2. Pursya

    Keg cabinet

    Here's my storage area.
  3. I certainly got the full 10 litres out of the container. A well as the visual confirmation, the weight of the container was 10.35kg. So 10kg of water (10 litres) and 350g for the tap/container.
  4. I always use spring water. 10 litres for $4 from Woolworths.

  6. I had a dead Droid first up. Ran for about 2 hours. My replacement Droid serial is #1421, supplied January. The Droid I purchased two weeks ago is #861! All came from my local HN store. So no rhyme or reason as to how the droids are distributed. I don't think the serial numbers mean much as I reckon we are still working on the initial batch of Droids.
  7. Broken Droid. Time to let the team have a look at your temp graph. Take a pic of your thermometer reading and send it to them. Note the time so they can compare to the droid readings. Then wait for the new Droid!
  8. Is it the same liner cap that has failed twice? If so, chuck it out, contact Brewart with a link to this thread and your picture. They'll send you a replacement. If it's not the same one then you've got an issue. Did you do the reverse turn of the cap until it "clicks" in, before screwing the liner on?
  9. This may be of interest and help. https://www.justbrewart.com.au/threads/infected-brew.122/
  10. Ah, the ring was definitely there. I thought maybe I hadn't screwed the black adapter on the liner correctly, that's why I took the pic of it. My overnight experiment yielded no result. The liner did not leak, the connection did not leak. Of course there was no compressor pressure applied. Im at a loss, but the only other component is the cap. Ive isolated it from my collection and when BrewArt start a parts replacement page I'll replace it.
  11. Brewart have again replaced the print and the lines. For which I am grateful. The wife mentioned that she hoped they didn't think we were doing this deliberately to get "freebies" from the company. I can assure everyone that is not the case. Anyway, Liam from BrewArt has advised me to push the parts of the beer lines in before instillation. Which I will do from now on.
  12. Well, it's happened again! After the failure of the liner I put in a new keg. New beer line of course. Didnt have any as I was working my way through the discarded keg. sitting in the lounge I hear the Brewflow compressor going........I know what that means. You can see how much beer I drained out of the flow. IMG_3585.MOV
  13. I've had a failure put I'm unable to narrow down just what the issue is. The pour was nothing but air and foam. There was beer between liner and keg. I've drunk as much as I can poured directly from the keg. The fest went down the drain. Bladder is now full of water in the sink trying to identify if there is a leak in it somewhere. IMG_3577.MOV

    I had an issue where I could not get on to the app, or connect to the Droid last week. Brewart were unable to solve it. I ended up creating a new account so that I could continue to brew.
  15. I also use the twist and remove/install method. the latch to me is just a security feature to stop the tap popping out when brewing/kegging.
  16. As usual, BrewArt have been amazing. New Ruby Porter and pack of lines on its way. And also confirmation that they do want to know directly about these types of issues. Lets face it, we are the guinea pigs, the testers, the early adopters. It is our experiences that will shape what the Droid and Brewflow end up being in 5 years time.
  17. Well, put in a new keg and beer line this morning. An hour or so later I heard the compressor run. So I looked and found beer in the cap of the keg around the valves. Pulled it out and checked valves. All tight. So cleaned up, replaced line and all looks good. The new line is from a new packet so hopefully just a bad batch.
  18. I've got to say that I really don't know why the failure. I've never examined the lines in any detail before. This one I connected as usual, turned the keg to straighten it as usual. Turned the flow on, let the compressor run. Pre chilled keg so waited half an hour then poured. Had I think four glasses. I originally thought the line had broken, as there was an inner tube inside the zip tied tube. But then I realised that the small looped tube went inside that tube. Not exactly a good design. Seems to me it's a design issue. Zip ties are not a best solution for anything. I am unsure how to inspect the line in the future. Do I pull hard? If I do pull hard, will that weaken the join and guarantee a failure? I will inform BrewArt with pictures, as I think being an early adopter it's up to all of us to feed as much information as possible to iron out issues for the betterment of the system.
  19. Put a new keg in yesterday. Had three or four glasses last night, all good. Even the pour. This morning the compressor ran....strange, but thought nothing more about it. This arvo thought I might have a beer. Indicator said "empty"! So opened the lid.......beer spurts everywhere, pump starts up. Switched off and waited....lifted lid. Beer line in two pieces, all beer outside keg, keg forcing lid open.
  20. That's a massive amount of information! I made up two Excel files. One was the Brewprints ingredients with just the name, brew times and ingredients. The other is an Excel file with the ingredient list at the top and six "boxed" rows below. When choosing a brew to order I simply copy the entire line from the first file into the blank "ordering" file. Then it's an easy process to delete each column that has no ingredients chosen. Then autosum gives me a total for each column in a thick lined box at the bottom, print and you have a list ready to order. Easy!
  21. I've had issues removing liners as well. As you say, no liquid but definately something in there. just put in a 4 1/2 week old US Chiller. Nice brew. Having trouble retaining head.
  22. Agreed. The Droid has no ability to "stir" the hops in to the mix. Purely infusion over 24 hours. I have even forgotten to but hops/primer into the keg before kegging. Added after the full 5 litres were in and no issues a month or more later.
  23. Thanks MattS. Don't know why you can't post links in here. Derren, I got the link off the JustBrewart site, all kudos to them.
  24. Trying to insert a link but cannot. http://pericles.ipaustralia.gov.au/ols/auspat/pdfSource.do?fileQuery=Fr%7DuK%7D%84s%804twzs%7Co%7BsKOc%40%3E%3F%3E%40F%40%3FBGO%3F%40%3E%3F%40%3E%40%3EG%3C%7Ert4%82vsKp%80%7D%85%7C if youcopy and paste that text it may work
