Why Fenn rocks!
« on: March 06, 2007, 06:41:08 PM »
Today, Fenn and I went shopping..

We spent nearly $1000 with another few hundred to yet be spent..

Today I bought:
2 x kegs
5 metres of food grade tubing
1 x Bar tap
1 x 8.6kg Cylinder (Pre-charged with CO2, and YES I own the cylinder)
1 x regulator (dual dials so I can see the pressures and remaining amount of gas in cylinder)
Appropriate disconnects and fixings

Tomorrows purchase = 1 x fridge to put this all in.

And here's the cool thing.

All with her blessings.  (It was on her credit card.  She signed for it).

This weekends project?  Assembling said kit.

And most importantly.  I got a beer bubbling away ready to go into the keg this weekend..  :P

Only a few more weeks til BEER ON TAP!

So it should all be ready by the time I move to Canbra next month, right? Did I tell you I've got nearly two weeks off between jobs?

Better be something decent, like stout, too. Better ask your mate for the recipe, he makes a damn fine drop.

Hot damn...that sounds like a pretty sweet set-up once it's all hooked up.

Fenn does indeed rock.

First.
* No kids.  Thankfully.

Is it coming at a price?  Well yeah..  I bought her a wallunit.  Nice one..  A few other knickknacks.

But there is reasoning behind it all..

When we saved up for the house and all that, we created a budget.  We based that budget on our MINIMUM income.

Nicola and I have been earning a lot more than our minimum income..  Shift penalties, overtime, allowances.  The amount was SIGNIFICANTLY more.  So..  We decided to treat ourselves.

But why it's so good, is Fenn didn't question what I wanted.   She SUGGESTED it.

Video it?  You bet I will..  There'll in fact be PICTURES tonight..  It'll just be everything in pieces..  Parts, kegs, gas cylinders..  Proof that I'm not lying to you..  I'd never lie to you..   ;D

Most importantly, as I don't have a keg pre-aged and carbonated yet, a friend is bringing around one of his chilled, pre-carbonated, aged kegs of beer.  This of course is purely scientific.  We need to ensure that there are NO LEAKS IN THE LINES!  REPEATEDLY!

All scientific of course.. :-X leaking yet? :-X leaking yet?  :-X leaking yet? :-X

The world is a wonderful place..  Did I mention that the fridge arrived today?

Oh I am so coming to your place next time I'm up to visit the family AD.

And yes, if Fenn is encouraging this kind of behavior, don't EVER let her go!

Video..  hmm.  Quality = wait and see.  I have no idea.

I will be relying on a digital camera which can also take video.  Not a Digital Video Camera or similar..

The quality of the camera is reasonable..  I'll try and scam a camera tripod for better quality images.  Otherwise, you're gonna have to make do with whatever I find that works..

Images = ok..

I'll try and make it a full tutorial as well as a "Guys having fun in a non-sexual way" type video.

Also will be working on some plans soon for some exciting developments for keg-home-brewers..  :P  (I've discussed my idea with Colin at the local brew shop.  He loves my idea and if I make it work he promises to sell thousands of them for me.)

man .. that sounds most interesting....


I shoot (reasonably) steady vid without a tripod my simply bracing the cam on something solid whilst shooting.

If you have to freehold .. keep the cam slowly moving around the subject ... seems to work good.

I'm thinking tripod though..  As I'm actually going to be working with tools, I'd rather both hands free..

Pictures to follow in about 5 minutes..  Just finished clearing out the beer drinking room..  Everything in place and setup..  Now I gotta take pictures of it..  :P

Not setup yet..  Just the preliminary stuff..  Actually tool day is Saturday..

Probably a double post..  Who cares..  Important update..  PHOTOS!!!

First:  The fridge and the bits


What you are seeing:
1 x big arse fridge.  Dunno how many litres..  But could fit 4 kegs in that sucker..
1 x 8.6kg CO2 cylinder
2 x kegs
1 x lotsa fiddly bits

Which brings us to the next picture



Here you see:
the dual guage regulator (So I can see the pressure in the keg and also remaining gas
5 metres of food grade tubing
2 x disconnects for the kegs
a few little clips
the beer tap

Final picture time



This is the room I'm drinking in.  2 armchairs.  Nice view out the window over the back yard.  Plenty of space to kick back..  Plenty of room for some camp chairs or similar to setup in there.

A few tools lying around from having done a little work in there.  But it's a blokes room.   So who cares.

hrmm 4 kegs you say... might need to think about where you put the tap, after all 4 kegs means possibility for 4 taps , and 4 flavours of beer at any one time :P

Actually, I'm thinking long term.

But only 3 taps..

I'm thinking the 4th keg will be 'redundancy'.  When one gets low, whack another in the fridge to start cooling and final aging.  When the keg runs out, quick change.  No down time..  Always 3 kegs running..
