20% Off CO2 Manifolds at William’s Brewing!

CO2 Manifolds from William’s Brewing.  Each of the runs has a ball valve with an integrated check valve.

Check Valves.  The check valve ensures that liquid doesn’t backflow from one line to another.  It’s not common for beer to backfeed up a line, but it is certainly possible.

Barb Fittings.  Each of the four runs and the inlet feature 1/4″ barb fittings.  Personally, I prefer barb fittings on CO2 lines as they don’t loosen over time.  Even a small leak could mean an emptied CO2 tank.

Aluminium Body.  This manifold features an aluminum body.  One end has a 1/4″ NPT to 1/4″ barb installed for hooking up to your regulator.  The opposite end has a 1/4″ NPT plug installed.  That plug can be removed and another brass valve or part can be installed…  Q87, D16, or D69.

As of this posting, these are each marked down 20%. No coupon or promo code is required, sale price is reflected on each product page.  These are a great deal!  Check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.

Tilt Bluetooth Hydrometer – $117.45 (in pink only) + hands on review

More Info

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

Designed specifically for homebrewers, the Tilt Hydrometer & Thermometer monitors both the specific gravity and temperature of your batch while its fermenting without having to open your fermenter and waste your beer for test samples, allowing you to brew more consistent batches of beer and makes each batch much easier to track. Using the Tilt App (Available Here!) you can instantly check on your batches readings using an Apple iPhone/iPad or Android smartphone/tablet. Designed with a high precision temperature sensor and accelerometer, the Tilt monitors your batch with a fine degree of control. The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt’s 0.990 to 1.120 range. The included thermometer is accurate +/- 1 degree F. The increased transmission power of the Tilt gives it better reception and range, allowing it to send data through large, thick-walled fermenters and it will work with most Bluetooth 4.0+ devices. The Tilt was also built with efficiency in mind. The reduced power consumption allows to to use you Tilt batch after batch with the same battery. Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to use with an included battery. Battery life is 12-24 months depending on usage. Easy to use, the Tilt makes a great addition to any brewhouse. Simply download the app, sanitize your Tilt, drop it into your fermenter, and start taking readings!

The Tilt Hydrometers comes in a rainbow of colors to brighten up your brew supplies, but these colors are not just cosmetic. Use a different color Tilt to monitor multiple batches of beer at the same time. The Tilt App will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color.

These have been pretty consistently selling for $135 since we started posting about them here on HBF.  For whatever reason, AIH and Austin Homebrew Supply have both raised the price to $140 on all versions except for pink.  I’m not sure if this is a sign of things to come or a temporary anomaly.  Anyway the pink on is still $135 as of this posting.  Check the product page for current price and availability.

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap for PET Bottles – works on gas AND liquid posts – $10.38 + Hands on Review & Draft Line Cleaning Builds

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap Counter Pressure Bottle Filling With 5/16" Barb,CO2 Coupling To Carbonate Soda Beer Fruit Juice Water

Stainless steel ball lock carbonation cap with barb.  Includes replacement o-ring.


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

  • 304 stainless steel will last a lifetime
  • Carbonate,cleaning your beer lines
  • Use it to counter pressure bottle fill PET bottles
  • Easy to install and use,with extra one piece of o-ring for replacement

“The post on this unique carbonation cap has been machined ,so it fit BOTH the liquid and gas ball lock disconnects.”


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.

Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed two draft line cleaning projects using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

One of the questions that arises on these carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.

Used 5 Gallon Whiskey Barrels – $114.74, Save $20 & FREE Shipping

Drained 5 Gallon Whiskey/Bourbon Barrel

Drained 5 Gallon Whiskey/Bourbon Barrel

More Info

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

Have you ever wanted to make a true whiskey barrel stout, or an oak aged barleywine? We now have 5 gallon American Oak whiskey barrels from a leading craft distillery. These impart a deep whisky/bourbon-oak flavor and are perfect for aging your strong ales, and also ideal for sour ales. These are once used barrels which have stored premium craft whiskey or bourbon for at least 3 years before being drained.

These quality barrels were crafted in Minnesota by The Barrel Mill and have a Char level of 3. They come with either a wooden bung or a plastic bung, and also fit a #9 Stopper (not included) if you want to use these with an airlock (see at right).

These held Kings County Distilling Bourbon and Single Malt Whiskey, from 2014 to late February 2019 when they were dumped. They first held Bourbon for a couple years, then were dumped and refilled with Single Malt for another year or two. For more on the Kings County Distillery and their bourbon and whiskey, click HERE.

The pictured wood stand is optional, see a suitable stand at right.

NOTE: Pricing is for 1 barrel, three are shown to show you how they vary in appearance.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Note that wood barrels are imperfect, and may leak when initially filled, particularly if they are not filled within two weeks of receiving. We do not guarantee against leakage, but leaking barrels can be repaired by rehydration or wood plugs, check YouTube for instructional videos. Always fill a barrel with water and leave for 24 hours before use to check for leaks.
