  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. Download this application https://www.diybeer.com/au/ 2 days left for September issue - recipes of the month and goods purchased over $80 free delivery. To access menu tap those series of line strokes top left had corner. Coopers tins under extracts, you’ll find your way.
  4. Oh and join up for the newsletter, each month you’ll get an email with recipes of the month (free deliver) and offer for free deliver on goods if you spend over $80 or sometimes $100.
  5. Hi fellow Fermentist, no one responded but a few active here now. How have things been going? Still with Ikegger gear? Cheers Mark.
  6. 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
  7. 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)
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. There you go, lighter in colour already. Must also have picked up settled hop material in the first two pours.
  13. 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.
  14. With the extra 4 that’ll give 100 litres, a good stock and allows time for maturity purposes. To be honest I’d definitely have gone the beerflo way if it all this was about when I changed from bottles to kegs ( an expensive way to go). However my kegs and system works well and I’m happy to stay with what I have. Stay with your system and just build up your keg stocks........more more more.🍻
