So up till now we have almost exclusively focused on how you can use the iKegger range for beer. Whether that is picking up your favourite liquid gold from a local brewery, filling it from a 6 pack to take to the footy or using it to brew your own without the headaches of bottling (and the benefit of being able to force carbonate).
But we have got a lot of questions about other drinks and also a bunch of people testing them out in other ways... some of them very outside the box!
Coffee: It seems cold drip coffee is on every self respecting, bearded, tattooed baristas menu these days. It's a fairly costly drink to make as it involves steeping large amounts of coffee grounds and it goes sour quickly if exposed to air. Enter the iKegger range! In the same way that purging the oxygen from our mini kegs keeps your beer fresh, it can also make sure your morning after fix is ready and waiting to clear the cobwebs of last nights IIPA from your head.
Mixed Drinks: We get asked all the time whether you can use the iKegger range for spirit and mixer drinks (rum and coke or vodka and soda for example) and the answer is a resounding "of course you can!" The iKegger growler especially is the perfect item to take to a party filled with your own Bundy and Dry mix. You choose how strong it is, it will stay cold all day without needing to be kept in a ice filled esky and it will never go flat. Let all those other fools fish around in an esky full of freezing ice water looking for the tinny they bought that someone else has pinched. You can sit in your seat pouring ice cold, perfectly carbonated, perfectly mixed to your taste bevvies all night!

So we decided that the Fermentasaurus is a great bit of brewing kit at a really good price. It has basically the same feature set as a stainless conical fermenter in that you can remove the trub without exposing your brew to air or having to rack it to another container.
It is also fantastic in that you can ferment under pressure and also use it as a keg!
The one thing it lacks when compared to say to say a Grainfather or SS Brewtech Conical is the ability to control the temperature during fermentation unless you put the whole thing in a fridge...
Well we decided to fix that!
So by now you’ve probably seen “cold drip” or “cold brew” coffee popping up in your local cafes. And now the latest craze of “nitro coffee” So what are they and why should you care?
We show you how to make your own cold brew coffee, nitro coffee and espresso martinis on TAP!
