In the picture here you can see one of the home brew kit options (20L Plastic Keg + 5L) connected with some of the included gear to the optional 35L fermenter in one very useful configuration.
If you brew with the 35L Snub Nose (or any other pressure fermenter) with a spunding valve attached (also included in this home brew kit) during fermentation you end up with carbonated beer just using the CO2 produced while brewing. If you connect the fermenter to the 2 kegs (again all equipment is included) during brewing the CO2 produced will also flush out your kegs and pressurise them ready to be filled.
Once brewing is complete you simply increase the pressure on the regulator slightly to transfer your finished beer to the kegs, under pressure with no loss of carbonation or chance of contact with air.
You can also just walk away and let it do it's thing as with this setup the large keg will fill first, once it is full the small keg will begin filling and once either the small keg is also full or the fermenter has emptied the red ball will float in the sight glass and stop all transfers.
If you don't use a pressure capable fermenter yet, don't worry you can still easily transfer from your bucket to the kegs with this kit and then use the regulator to carbonate both kegs simultaneously.
Snub Nose Fermenter Brewing | Keg Kit Ready To Drink
The 5L Keg In Portable Mode (With Steel Tap + Optional Sleeve)
5L Mini Keg In Portable Mode (with Pluto Gun)
In the picture here you can see the kit (20L Plastic Keg + 5L) connected in the way you would drink from it.
We have disconnected the fermenter and moved the spunding valve over to it as if the next brew is on the go.
Using the same connections from the previous configuration we now have the regulator attached to the large keg and this is pushing beer into the smaller keg onto which we have a Pluto Gun tap to pour from (you can choose either this or a steel flow control tap in the package, or both).
You could leave the kegs in this configuration, which means that the small keg will always be full and ready to take with you somewhere if you have a large enough fridge.
The other option is to keep the larger keg in storage somewhere (garage, cupboard etc) and just refill the mini keg from it as needed to put in your fridge.
You can leave the larger keg disconnected from anything, the fermenter brewing away merrily and have a mini keg full of beer in the kitchen fridge or to take with you to a friends place.
Recently started home brewing and was pleasantly surprised with the results form a very basic setup, decided to give this kit a go and it's brought my beer brewing to a whole new level, In a world where customer service is fast disappearing Ikegger are a pleasure to deal with. Very happy customer.
We recently ordered a customized Home Brew Kit for upgrading our gear and start with pressure fermenting and kegging. Oner was great and absolutely supportive in setting up a pack that fits perfectly to our needs. The parts delivered are top quality and work just fine! We had a little problem when pressure fermenting the first time but that was a operator failure not a product issue ;) We just put the spunding valve on the liquid post by mistake and the yeast emptitied the fermzilla by itself over night. But lessons learned for the future!
