    I've noticed not many people on here use Inkbird, any particular reason? They aren't quite as fancy as the meater but they really don't need to be.

    I use them for BBQ and brewing and can't fault them.

    My WiFi 4 probe unit was under $100 delivered with a free pen thermometer.

    What sort of problems are you having?

    I'm currently running Nukataps. With 15psi for soda/soft drink/cider, they start to pour hollow after a few seconds and retain a bit of liquid in the spout which drips occasionally. 10psi for my beers works great though.

    I'll be pulling them apart for the first time soon to give them a good clean, I'll see how the plastic shuttle is holding up.

    I have return springs in mine as well, IMO they aren't worth having. Unless the tap is used constantly (might be ok if you don't have 8!), they gum up and don't spring back. I've also heard they affect the pour.

    Previously I had FC Intertaps and before that the regular Brumby taps.

    I wouldn't get FC taps again, there isn't much point.

    Brumby taps pour the best but since they aren't forward sealing they are more prone to gunk/infection.

    I have a few hobbies these days, but my main one is probably brewing beer.

    Since I tend to make a fair bit I built myself a keg fridge out of a chest freezer, aka a keezer.

    Pretty simple on the outside.

    I put the fonts off to one side in case a decide to add a third one since I can squeeze in 12 kegs.

    Inside looks a little more complicated but it's very straight forward.

    I've got a few secondary regulators so I can have soft drink and soda water and higher carbonation levels.

    I used to put premixed spirits on tap, but that's pretty dangerous!

    I used an old video card fan to cool the fonts to help with first pour foam.

    I started with a digital tap list, but it was pretty hard to read. It would be better on a large TV.

    Then I decided to take up another hobby and get in to 3D printing, so I made some tap handles.

    They turned out alright, it even prints the thread!

    The black numbers I don't use any more. It was an early idea that I wasn't a fan of.

    Then someone wanted to buy a bunch of handles off me in all different colours.

    The rainbow isn't what I would go for but he seemed stoked with it.

    Anyone else got a kegerator/keezer?


    I recently bought a Pit Boss 850G pellet grill, seems to be going OK so far.

    First cook was pork spare ribs, delicious!

    Second cook I went a little overboard with 3kg pork shoulder, brisket, baby back ribs and beef short ribs.

    I need a bit more practice with the brisket but the pulled pork was awesome.
