Heat Resistant Glove [Minding Yeast Starters & Brew Day]…. $3.76! + Free Prime Ship

G & F 1689L Heat Resistant Glove Commercial Grade, Large

G & F Heat Resistant Oven Glove, Large  by G & F


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

  • Same material used by fire fighters
  • Maintains integrity and strength at high temperatures
  • Thermal regulating
  • Ambidextrous, fits right or left hand
  • Soft and pliable for easy grasp

I use a similar type of glove when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.  These are also handy on brew day for handling hot (but not wet) ball valves and such.

These are not waterproof.  Safety Note: Always use caution when handling hot items or ingredients and always read and follow manufacturer directions.

10/17/18 11:30 PM Central: This glove (in large only) has dropped to just $3.76.  That’s a 52% discount from list and the best historical direct from Amazon price I found. Shipping is also free to many US addresses with Prime Membership [Try Prime for Free] or a qualifying order. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly.

Inkbird Temperature and Humidity Controller ITC-608T Pre-Wired AC Dual Stage Outlet Thermostat with 12 Period Time Stage, 1800w, ETL Listed (with Temperature Sensor)

More Info

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

  • US ETL Certificate Listed and Warranty. ITC-608T thermostat temperature and humidity controller is ETL listed, and rigorously tested for quality control and safety. The unit itself has 2 years warranty. (The temperature and humidity sensor have 1 year warranty.)
  • Three in one Multifunctional Temperature and Humidity Control Mode with Dual Relay Output. ITC-608T can work as a temperature controller, a humidity controller, a temperature and humidity controller. First, only plug temperature sensor with cooling and heating equipment. Second, only plug humidity sensor with humidifier and dehumidifier equipment. Third, plug both temperature and humidity sensor with cooling/heating and humidifier/dehumidifier equipment.
  • Supporting calibration, compressor delay and saving reset setting values. Centigrade or Fahrenheit degree display, easy to set, PV and SV dual display windows. And with compressor delay for protecting cooling device. ITC-608T can save the original setting values in case accidentally power-off.
  • More power up to 1800W. Temperature control range is -40-212°F(-40-100℃), humidity display range is 5 -99.0%RH. Max Loading: 120V 15A 1800W. Temperature senor is waterproof while humidity sensor is not.
  • Multifunctional usage. Temperature and humidity controller ITC-608T can be used in home brewing (refrigerator), fermenting, Greenhouse, terrarium, reptile, planting (mushroom), meat storage and cooking.

“Temp and humidity controller ITC-608T has certificate of ETL (US and Canada approved). The product will be safer when using. ITC-608T has multifunctional control mode. It can control both temp and humidity at the same time. (Plug both temp and humidity sensor). Or control single temp and has 12 different time stage periods for temp control mode. Or only control humidity with plug humidity sensor. This unit supports both F and C degree, compress delay, calibration and reset setting values saving. Heating/Cooling differential function could be set separately for refrigeration and heating to protect temp controller from violent change. Same as humidity control.”

 

This is a digital dual stage pre-wired temp control with 12 timers and a humidity sensor and controller. The temp controller part of this is pretty straightforward.  As homebrewers we’d usually use that with a heating and/or cooling device for fermentation temp control or as part of a kegerator.

Dual stage means this can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.  This controller displays in Fahrenheit and Centigrade.

I would say that 1,800 Watt is a higher capacity than many of the homebrew controllers out there.

The humidity part could be handy for judging whether your Eva Dry (or similar) needs recharged.  See: Damp Kegerator? Fix Kegerator Condensation.  I suppose you could also control an appropriate electronic dehumidifier.  It’s my understanding that if you plug in the optional humidity sensor the temperature controller portion is limited to one stage – heating or cooling.  That may not be a bad thing as the only scenario I think this could be helpful in the homebrew context is a kegerator and most of the time you’ll probably only use one stage (cooling) anyway for a kegerator.  My guess is that most homebrewers will not have a need for the humidity feature of this controller.

Note: This product has multiple variations – choose between multiple sensor options (temperature and/or humidity).  I would guess that most homebrewers would be interested in the temperature sensor only version and that is the version that’s linked below.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves – $3.99

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves via Adventures in Homebrewing.

Used whiskey barrels are popular… really popular.  5 and 10 gallon barrels usually sell out quickly when they become available.  They are also typically relatively expensive.  These are a great way to get some of the barrel experience without the cost and space required for a barrel.

from AIH…”These sliced staves do vary in size. They are anywhere from 1/2”- 1″ wide, 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 8-13″ in length. Please keep this in mind when purchasing. Many commercial chips have allowed moisture (bourbon) to dry up. This is not the case with these sliced staves. These staves have been processed from authentic Kentucky bourbon barrels.”

As of this posting, these are available for $3.99.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.
