  1. Hi Robert. Three weeks can be a bit “weak” on carbonation, depending upon storage temperature. It will approve as the brew matures. The kegs can take a bit longer due to the larger volume and again the storage temperature. If bottles or kegs are stored 16C (61F) or lower carbonation will slow and take longer. Cheers Mark
  2. Kegging guys on here have recommended and use 30 to 33g per keg.
  3. Hi @BrewArt Team, two members in the US, Andy and Beer Monkey above are having order/contact problems. Can you assist? Cheers.
  4. Hi Beer Monkey, Has the issue be solved? If not I’ll refer to the BreaArt team for you. Cheers, Mark
  5. That’s been a great idea for you and I will adapt it when we get to heatwaves here in Adelaide. (saves chilling water). At the moment enjoying a Bohemian Lager whilst watch taped World Cup Darts, ho how hard life is at times. ☺️
  6. I’ll reference through to the BrewArt team for you. @BrewArt Teamcan you help our American friend, thanks Mark.
  7. Not sure here. The app on my Samsung Galaxy has been ok however I tend to use the iPad and that’s been great. I think BrewArt is looking into the issue. Cheers
  8. Thanks Alan and no issues here. We all learn from each other, that’s part of the fun. Cheers 😊
  9. Sorry Alan, I wasn’t assuming you didn’t know about exploding bottles, it’s part of the conversation and part reference to “Dump stuff together and just hope for the best” Cheers, Mark
  10. xpsTech, in the interest of experimentation are you in a position to weigh the kegs before they are filled and then after as to confirm the amount of beer in each. Don’t get me wrong I’m not disputing your method and understand the principle. I have 2 x 5l water containers that I use and this records exactly on the 10l droid mark. Now the ingredients after settling on the bottom of the droid should displace and increase the height of the fluid to above the 10l mark by the sediment depth/volume in mls. If this being the case then filling the first keg to the 5l mark would in fact be over 5l?? Consequently the experiment should confirm your deductions in the initial filling of the droid. An interesting experiment?
  11. An example of a simple sugar measuring device for various bottle sizes, should be able to get from homebrew shop. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/292054297395
  12. No problems with your thinking however would say that the amount of priming sugar can be the difference between flat beer, over carbonated wasted frothy pours or bottle bombs, particularly with glass. (highly dangerous). So in that I’d note and stick to fairly accurate measurements of the carbonation sugar. Cheers, Mark h
  13. Looks a nice drop Alan. If that’s with the 3 sugar cubes then not bad. Do you know the weight of each cube, off memory 8g (.28oz) per the large bottle. Cheers
  14. Let’s face it, your spoilt. I suppose the good women is getting the Tiger beer? Or is the Brewflo next to you?
  15. Good result, the beers can flow now?
  16. Will be interested in that. I like the Czech Saaz hops but always like to play around as well. Report soon.
  17. Haven’t brew for a while (like so many), do enjoy it. In the droid today.
  18. Hi Scott, welcome to the forum and sorry under rotten circumstances, but these things can happen and if any positive you learn from them. You may not have seen but Rob has done a video on liner/cap connection. Under the main forum “First Time BrewArtist: Basic Operation” there is a thread “Keg liner cap onto a keg liner video” There are other discussions about this as well. I see the cap broke so it may well be worth your while talking to the BrewArt team Tech (get people/service). I’ll do the link for you. Pat the dog (give him/her the beer) and keep on brewing. Honestly it it is well worth it. You in Australia or US? Cheers Mark. Info/attention for @BrewArt Team, if you can help. Thanks
  19. You and me need to sit down and talk about priorities, some sacrifices are just not worth it. Perhaps if you play half tanked 🤢, hangover etc you won’t get picked again. 😊 Ps As you retired, you are a registered paid up player?
  20. I think you’ll really enjoy this one. If not make one of your G-O-A-T curries.
  21. Ambient temperature of the room for 5 weeks ranging probably around 18C, 1 week in the fridge before using at 3/4C.
  22. Glad to here, only wipe the outside with a damp soft cloth, don’t spray. Cheers
  23. Y1 is the US-05 yeast, so I’d go with that.
