We have been very busy this week putting some test batches through our brew house. We are currently working out our efficiency and best operating procedures. Looking forward to trying some of these batches next week!
We have converted some spent kegs into steel fermenters by opening the cap (you may need a special tool for this) and removing the keg spike. We then placed a bored bung with an air lock in the top where the spike would have been. To clean these fermenters we give them a good spray and use a cleaning and sanitising solution. Also to be extra safe we filled the keg 3/4 full of water and boiled it long enough for steam to heat the top of the keg.
