Save on Kent System Soda Bottle Carb Caps and QDs

Kent Fittings - Shut-Off QD Set (1/4 in. Barb & Soda Bottle Cap) H482

Kent Soda Bottle Caps and QDs via MoreBeer


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Use this quick disconnect set to seal a soda bottle under CO2 pressure. An ideal way to bring homebrew to a party without all the accessories.

  • A single-handed connection and disconnection
  • Strong plastic that can handle 250 degrees, very durable, and is medical-grade compliant and made from FDA approved material
  • Easy installation into your home brewery
  • KENT Systems quarter turn design functions safely

TIP N’ TRICK: Add a CO2 tee inline with your current CO2 setup and install the H481 Kent Shut-Off Female QD w/ 1/4 in Barb included. This way you always have access to CO2 accessible to put your beer under pressure before leaving for the party.


Uses:

  • PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.
  • Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.

The Kent System Is Unique!

This system is unique for a couple reason.  First it’s comprised of two components (most caps are a single piece).  One piece threads onto the bottle, the other is a QD that has a barb and connects to your CO2 system.  Because of this two piece design you can use one QD with loads of caps, reducing costs vs traditional one piece designs.

A second thing that sets this system apart is… it’s the only solution I’m aware of that works with pin lock QDs, or better stated without the need for ball lock QDs.  Since this is barbed in can hook to any compatible CO2 line no matter if you use ball lock or pin lock QDs.

As of this posting, MoreBeer has the Cap and QD set for $9.99, while extra caps are $4.99. Shipping is free with a qualifying $59 order to many US addresses. Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

Kegland Series 4 Kegerator – Designed for Homebrewers – on sale at William’s Brewing + Hands on Review

KegLand Series 4 Kegerator

Kegland Kegerators via William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • The First Kegerator Designed For Homebrewers
  • Ships Via Truck Freight For FREE to the lower 48 states
  • Now Certified For Commercial Use
  • Optional Mark III C02 Regulator at a savings over separate purchase prices

KegLand Series 4 Kegerators are the only kegerators designed specifically for the home brewer. They feature Intertap solid stainless forward seal faucets, a tower cooling fan with a front panel on and off switch, an interior glass holder to keep chilled glasses handy, and a wide range thermostat adjustable from 26° to 82° F. (ambient temperature permitting).

Intertap forward seal faucets come standard, mounted on a brushed 304 stainless tower. Besides being of extremely high quality, these are the only beer faucets that can be easily converted to a growler filler or stout faucet by just unscrewing the spout. You can choose between standard forward seal Intertap Faucets made of solid stanless steel, or flow control Intertap Faucets made from solid stainless steel. Pick standard faucets if you mostly drink home brew, pick flow control is you use commercial kegs, which are more likely to vary in carbonation when first tapped (flow control can help stop a just transported keg from foaming).

Cold does not rise. You will find that a beer tower elevated above a refrigerator will always remain warmer than the refrigerator, resulting in initial pours from the kegerator that are warm and foamy, followed by colder pours once you have dispensed a beer or two. At home this is a real problem, unless you pour beers in quick succession. The KegLand Series 4 is the only kegerator to include a tower cooling fan as standard equipment, and also feature a fan on/off switch on the front digital control panel. This way, to save energy and minimize fan noise, you can leave the tower cooling fan off except at times when you are dispensing beer.

When it is time to pour a glass, the Series 4 includes a handy glass holder inside to keep your beer glasses chilled. Just open the door and grab an ice cold glass and dispense. The glass holder holds both Belgian type stemmed glasses, and can also hold pint glasses. The glass holder can be removed, as it only allows you to have two 5 gallon and one 3 gallon or shorter keg inside at once.

The beauty of the Series 4 is the extended range thermostat included. Unlike kegerators with standard 30° to 50° temperature ranges, the Series 4 can be adjusted easily with the front panel digital display from 25° to 82° F, which means you can also use your kegerator as a fermentation chamber for ales in summer, a small refrigerator for food items, or even a wine cellar, as long as the temperature outside the kegerator is warmer than your thermostat setting (the unit does not heat). The Series 4 is easily convertible to a small refrigerator, and features an insulated plug to cover the tower hole, and a screw plug to seal the back gas line hole. In addition, a removable refrigerator shelf is included, and the drip tray and railing can both be removed for a smooth top. The door hinge is reversable.

Series 4 Triple Tap SS Includes:

  • Your choice of 1, 2, or 3 Faucet Brushed Stainless Faucet Towers
  • All Stainless Intertap Faucets are standard with your choice of standard or Flow Control
  • Built in Tower Cooling Fan with on off switch on front panel
  • CO2 Cylinder Bracket Holder (needed C02 bottle not included)
  • Removeable Glass holder to keep your beer glasses chilled inside
  • Beer and Gas Line with hose clamps
  • Intertap Multi Tool
  • Removeable Castor Wheels
  • Chrome Guard Rail
  • Drip Tray

The only additional parts you require are the gas cylinder, C02 Regulator, kegs and connectors to attach to your kegs (depending on which kegs you are using).

Series 4 Kegerator Specs:

  • Temperature range 26° F to 82° F (ambient temperature permitting)
  • R600 Refrigerant and a powerful compressor that can go down to 26° F.
  • The fridge is approximately 5.8 cubic feet in interior volume.

Dimensions:

  • 24” Wide Overall (interior dimensions 20¼” wide)
  • 30” Deep Overall with cylinder mount attached, 25½” deep without cylinder (interior with door closed 18″ deep)
  • 52” Height of the entire unit with tower and faucet handles and castors
  • 49¾” Height of the entire unit with tower and faucet handles without castors
  • 35¾” Height of the fridge part (including castor wheels but excluding the height of guard rail, drip tray or tower)
  • 33” Height of the fridge part (excluding castor wheels and the height of guard rail, drip tray and tower)

 

As of this posting all versions of this great kegerator are marked down $30.  Shipping is also free to many US addresses to addresses. Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

Save On… Social Kitchen & Brewerys Puttin’ on The Spritz Brut IPA – new to MoreBeer’s Brewmaster Series

puttin on the spritz brut ipa

From MoreBeer:

If you’re blue, and you don’t know where to go to, why don’t you go where dry beer sits? Puttin’ on the Spritz!

There’s a new style on the scene that has everyone tapping their toes, and we’re excited to bring you the beer that started the tune. In our latest addition to the BrewMaster Series lineup we have the original Brut IPA – Puttin’ on the Spritz! This hybrid IPA is the brainchild of Kim Sturdavant of Social Kitchen & Brewery in San Francisco, California. We first met Kim on our journey to brew with and understand the amyglucosidase enzyme (the signature ingredient responsible for a Brut’s dry character). Kim, being the stand-up fella that he is, was kind enough to not only share his knowledge of the AMG enzyme, but also the very recipe that shook up the brew scene and inspired countless iterations of the style.

Antec TriCool 120mm 3 Speed Fan [Stir Plate Project, Kegerator Circulation] – $8.74 + free shipping

Antec TriCool 120mm Cooling Fan with 3-Speed Switch

TriCool 120mm Cooling Fan with 3-Speed Switch by Antec

Possible uses include… putting together a DIY Stir Plate and using this for a recirculating fan in your kegerator – See: Kegerator Beer Line Temperatures & Reducing Foam with a Recirculating Fan

The three speed switch may come in handy for a DIY stir plate build.  Depending on your setup, it could *possibly* negate the need for a speed/control potentiometer in a stir plate build.  I’ve received feedback along those lines, although I haven’t tried or verified this myself.  HBF Reader Dave B said “Have used this for a stir plate setup… totally don’t need a potentiometer (speed controller) – just use the high-med-low.” via a post comment on 3/31/2015.
