Four Easy Upgrades for Brew Day

Looking for some simple upgrades to make brew day go more smoothly?  Consider these three gear purchases.

#1 –  24″ Stainless Steel Whisk.  This whisk is great for: 1.  Stirring in extract.  It easily breaks up clumps, 2.  Stirring the mash 3.  Starting a whirlpool and 4. Helping chill more quickly (place in the middle of your wort chiller to agitate wort).  If you’re a homebrewer, I think you should consider owning one of these babies.  Hands on Review

#2 – 1 Gallon Commercial Quality Pitcher.  I use this pitcher on brew day and for general around-the-brewery measuring.  It’s food safe 212 deg F.  I use it for recirculating, topping up water, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day and more.  This small upgrade has made a big difference for me on brew day.  This is a great pitcher.  I’ve owned and used it since May of 2013.  Hands on Review

#3 – Commercial Bus Tubs.  I use two bus tubs on brew Bus Tubs Homebrewday and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, and previously mentioned mash stirring whisk and 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.

#4 – CDN DTQ450X Digital Thermometer.  Having an accurate and reliable thermometer on brew day is important.  Hit your temps – rehydration, mash and pitching temp.  The CDN DTQ450X is a great choice.  Check out my Hands on Review

      No I haven’t. It’s an interesting idea. You’d definitely have to modify the whisk to pull that off.
