Bulk Grain Deal + Shipping Workaround: This sale applies to Viiking 2 row pale ale malt.  The 10 lb size is the largest that qualifies for free shipping.  It’s selling for just $7.99 for the unmilled version.  Apply coupon code FLASH15 and the price drops to $6.79 or just 68 cents per lb.  Buy 9 x 10 lbs sacks of malt to qualify for free shipping.  Your total would be $61.11.  That’s 68 cents per lb and is the equivalent of $37.40 for a 55 lb sack AND… shipping is still free to addresses in the lower 48 US states.

Note: I typically get questions/concerns when I post this workaround, please read… Although bags of grain do not ship under MoreBeer’s free shipping program… this is a loophole of sorts.  I chose the largest size that DOES ship for free.  If you use this technique you will receive 9 x 10 lb bags of grain, not a single 55 or 60 lb sack.

15% Off Kegland DuoTight Push-In Fittings & EVABarrier Double Wall Draft Tubing + BlowTie Spunding Review

Duotight Push-In Fittings & EVABarrier Double Wall Draft Tubing

 

From MoreBeer:

Duotight and EVABarrier will revolutionize how you connect your draft line! We love Duotight push-in fittings for their quick connection, reliable seal, and versatility. Easily connect and disconnect your draft lines — no need to use hose clamps or cut your tubing to remove it! Thanks to the double EPDM O-ring design, Duotight fittings offer a superior connection and seal than similar push-in fittings. They’ll hold tight even when your lines are turning a tight corner, and they’re pressure rated up to 100 psi. These little guys come in a ton of different options to serve a multitude of functions — use them as tailpieces on shanks and keg couplers, replace the swivel nut and barb on your flared ball lock or pin lock disconnects, or add in-line shut off or check valves to your draft lines. And with a few tees and ball valves, you can put together a gas manifold for a fraction of the price of a typical brass or aluminum manifold.

EVABarrier is the tubing of choice to be used with our line of Duotight fittings. This high-quality double walled tubing offers superior protection against oxidation, CO2 loss and microbial growth. Plus, it’s BPA and PVC free! The outer barrier gives the tubing a nice stiffness that makes it extremely kink resistant and perfect for use with push-in fittings. The inner wall is an excellent gas barrier, keeping oxygen out and CO2 in. The internal surface of the tubing is extremely smooth, making it difficult for bacteria and microbes to cling to. All sizes of EVABarrier can be used for either gas or beverage line, but be sure to check the recommended lengths for beer lines.

Bring your draft system into the 21st century with Duotight and EVABarrier!

Updated and Expanded! Build a Spunding Valve – How and Why

A Spunding Valve allows you to maintain a set pressure.  If pressure in the vessel exceeds the set point, it is expelled.  It generally consists of an adjustable PRV valve, a tee, a gauge and a way to connect to your keg.

Homebrewing Applications of a Spunding Valve

  1. Pressurized fermentation.  Ferment in a 5 or 10 gallon corny keg and use your Spunding Valve instead of an airlock.  This allows you to ferment at your desired pressure.
  2. Dry hop under pressure.  This allows you to dry hop earlier while reducing oxygenation.  Active yeast are more likely to metabolize oxygen that’s introduced during dry hopping during active fermentation.  Since CO2 is not exiting beer as vigorously under pressure, wanted compounds, flavors and aromas are more likely to stay in your beer under pressure.
  3. Naturally and accurately carbonate beer right in the keg.
  4. An airlock replacement.  Keep the valve wide open for non-pressurized fermentations.  Only do this if you have plenty of head space.  This wouldn’t make a great blow off tube.
  5. Keg to keg transfers.  Use the Spunding Valve to allow excess gas to exit the receiving keg as you transfer under pressure.  Helps you achieve a slow, controlled and pressurized transfer.
  6. Fix over-carbonated beers.
  7. Test for keg leaks.  Pressurize your keg to serving pressure.  Put the Spunding Valve on (with the pressure set well above your serving PSI) and note the reading.  The gauge should remain steady.  If pressure drops, you know you have a keg leak.  The digital build, see below, is especially helpful for this task,  The digital gauge reads with .1 PSI resolution making pressure changes easy to spot.  It’s worth noting that this checks the entire keg including gas body o-ring.  That spot is hard to check and other way as it’s only in function when the gas QD is on.  When the gas QD is on… it’s difficult to spray and check for bubbles underneath the gas QD.  Thanks to Scott Janish for this tip!
  8. As an airlock for long term aging of beers.  Airlocks can run dry over time.  A Spunding Valve will not.

  • Fit For Ball-lock Keg The universal poppet is used for gas posts/ liquid posts/ ball lock kegs/cornelius kegs/corny keg/soda keg.Use our stronger keg poppets to replace a hardened and leaking poppet

 

I use universal poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.  Tip: Universal poppets fit the vast majority of kegs without issue.  I have had a couple kegs that ended up being a bit too tight with these.  It’s an easy fix.  Use a pair of wire cutters or Nipper Pliers to trim the universal poppet.  I suggest taking off about half of a coil and testing.  You want the QD to slide on easily and for it to reliably hold pressure when the QD is off.  Taking off a half of a coil and testing helps you make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.

10 Gallon Factory Second Ball Locks… In Stock

10 and 15 gallon ball lock kegs can be tough to find.  Sometimes extremely tough.

These size kegs are handy if you’re a larger batch brewer wanting to keg larger batches and… they work great as fermenters.  I’ve used a 10 gallon ball lock for years and years as a fermenter.  It allows me to ferment under pressure [See: Spunding Valve Build], do fermenter to serving keg transfers under pressure, it’s food grade stainless steel and it’s easy to move around.  I’ve been a big advocate of this application of these hard to find kegs.

Keggle brewing has sourced factory second and brand new 10 and 15 gallon kegs.  Availability of these can be touch and go, especially for the factory seconds.  The factory seconds save you quite a bit of money.  Those are new kegs that have some blemishes, but are all in good usable condition and hold pressure.  Check Keggle Brewing for current selection, pricing and availability.

As of this posting, Keggle Brewing has a batch of factory second 10 gallon ball locks in stock for $225.  That’s a $100 savings compared to the standard offering.  As noted availability can be volatile, check Keggle Brewing for current availability and pricing.
