6 Universal Poppets [Ball & Pin Lock Kegs] – $8.99, $1.50 Each + Tip & Keg Parts Roundup

Poppet Valve,Ferroday 6 Piece Cornelius Type Universal Poppet Valve Draft Beer Parts Fits Ball & Pin Lock Kegs

6 universal keg poppets.  Stainless steel construction, replaceable o-rings.  Fits both ball and pin lock kegs and gas and liquid posts.  Made of 304 food grade stainless steel.

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.

Great Deal: Keg King Ultimate Draft Growler – Complete with CO2 – $69.99 + Free Shipping, Save $25

 

Keg King Ultimate Draft Growler - Complete with CO2

Keg King Ultimate Draft Growler via MoreBeer.  This is a stainless steel, double wall vacuum insulated growler that includes a CO2 regulator and tap.  Since it’s vacuum insulated it should keep beer cold (and resist sweating) for a very long time.  It’s basically a mini keg that, in most situations, doesn’t need to be refrigerated.

About, from MoreBeer: “Everything you need to have some fresh beer on the go. This ultimate growler is made from double wall, vacuum insulated stainless steel which makes it impervious to oxygen and sunlight. The included pressure lid allows you to pressurize the growler up to 30 psi with the provided mini CO2 regulator. The regulator uses 16 g threaded CO2 cartridges.”

  • 2 L stainless steel growler
  • Pressure lid with plastic tap
  • Mini CO2 regulator
  • 6 CO2 cartridges

As of this posting this is marked down to just $69.99, that’s a $25 savings.  For some pricing clarity, just this mini CO2 regulator costs $69.99 vs the same price for a double wall, vacuum insulated growler, regulator, 6 CO2 cartridges and tap.  This is a great deal.  Shipping is also free to most US addresses.  Not sure how long this is set to go.  Check the product page for current price and availability.

Hands on Review: Inkbird C909 1,500 Watt Digital Temperature Controller

I’ve used an Inkbird Dual Stage Temperature Controller, model ITC-308 for years on my fermentation deep freeze and have loved it.  Check out my Hands on Review of that game-changing controller.

As part of a move and a resulting kegerator update and refresh, I decided to replace my old temp controller (from a now defunct manufacturer) and ended up settling on Inkbird’s single stage C909.  That model was attractive because I’ve been extremely happy with Inkbird’s gear and I really like the fact that it plugs directly into an AC socket.  The wall I now have my kegerator on has no studs to mount a controller.  Because this is an Outlet Thermostat, the C909 solves that.

Note that the C909 is a swiss army knife of sorts, it has several different modes of operation including – timer, temperature controller, humidity sensor and cooking thermometer.  The C909 recognizes which probe type is plugged in (defaults to timer mode with no probe) and automatically switches to that mode.  For this review, I will be discussing the temperature control mode only.

Why Use an Over-Riding Temperature Controller?

Refrigerators and chest freezers are designed to do particular tasks.  As homebrewers, fermenters and home kegerator owners, we are asking these devices to do slightly different things and operate in different temperature ranges than built in thermostats allow for.  Over-riding temp controllers cycle power on and off to give you more fine tuned control.  This allows you to convert a chest freezer into a kegerator or fermentation chamber.
