Inside the portable keg fridge8678 viewsThis picture shows the rubber mat used as insulation on the inside of the portable keg fridge. The lid has also been insulated. The mat was purchased at Clarke Rubber for about $15, the plastic drum was sitting in the garage and the tap was a spare given to me by an old publican mate. Bags

Portable keg fridge8633 viewsThe portable keg fridge is an old plastic drum which has been lined with rubber for insulation. The beer tap and a hole for the co2 line has been added. Two to three bags of ice will generally last for 24 hours before a to up is needed.Bags

The 0812steved Patented CCing Doohicky8506 viewsFor those of you unable to (or not allowed to) acquire a fridge for CCing, this is my baby.

It is watertight and is insulated with polystrene fruit cartons (and highly decorative duct tape). I fill it with ice in the morning and top up with 4 cups of ice in the afternoon. Each morning I syphon out the water (5L/day) for the dog or the garden.

In this (February) climate it keeps the beer at around 12c, but from Autumn to Spring it comes into its own - keeping the beer well below 10c, and not using as much ice.

It may be ugly (thanks for noticing) but it does the job. I can provide detailed plans for those who need them.......

HLT upgrade8320 viewsAutomated HLT filling. This was done using a simple two stage controller. The sensors are home made as I couldn't find anything off the shelf. These were made up of 1/2 inch BPT nipples welded top and bottom with plastic end caps used in rural irrigation to electrically isolate the probes from the keg which acts as ground. These caps were boiled in an electric jug for 15 minutes to test for heat and they stood up well. The probes used were stainless steel screws and nuts. Corrosion and electrolysis can be a real problem with this sort of gear.

7411 viewsTurning a 60 litre Sankey keg into a 85 litre one. The need to brew triple batches to fill 3 corny kegs I found the 60 litre keg was a tad to small which didn't allow for evaporation and head room for hot break, this is how I approached the problem. I cut the middle out of a damaged keg scavenged from an apple orchard.Taz

6175 viewsAdd the top, weld into place grind and polish inside. Stainless Steel will rust if the surface is not polished smooth so a bit of work is needed to bring the welded areas up to a good finish. The end result was a good sized boiler at a cheap price.Taz

6110 viewsI cut my existing Sankey boiler in half (gulp) then welded the bottom half to the salvaged keg, then finished the weld off inside grinding and polishing. I needed a torch in the bottom for this.Taz
