Why would these have anything to do with homebrewing, you ask?  Great question.  These are an easy way to measure 6 mL of Star San.  Put 6 mL of Star San in 1 gallon of distilled water and you’ve got sanitizing solution.  Fill up a spray bottle and you’re ready to sanitize for pennies a batch.  See: Star San Tips, Tricks and Guidelines

Bob Says: “I have sent this one to you before, but I had to reorder and the price is still the same. 19 cents a syringe and the tip makes it easier then using a luer-lock type. I use them to measure StarSan, acid for water adjustment, and I buy hop extract in bulk and make my own Hop shots.”

32 Ounce Chemical Resistant Bottle and Sprayer from Chemical Guys.  Chemical resistant, Adjustable nozzle, professional grade.  A dilution guide is printed on the side of each bottle.

Use to spray things 🙂 around your brewery.  See: Star San Spray Bottle Method of Sanitizing

Chemical resistant plastic is a good thing when dealing with Sar San.  I used to store diluted Star San in a distilled water gallon jug.  When it eventually ate through the plastic and leaked all over… I realized that was a bad idea.

Feedback from HBF Reader Da Kine: “This is a great product. I had some bottles from Ace Hardware that lasted maybe 2 brews. Based on HBF’s hands-on review, I got some of these and they’ve lasted great over dozens of brews.”

I own this bottle and sprayer.  It worksimg_0057-300x225 great.  Check out my Hands on Review

SSC Controls S420-1501 Foot Switch, Maintained Action (Push On / Push Off), 8-ft Cable with Piggyback Plug (3-Pronged), Single Pedal, Electrical, Made in USA

SSC Controls S420-1501 Foot Switch, Maintained Action (Push On / Push Off), 8-ft Cable with Piggyback Plug (3-Pronged), Single Pedal, Electrical, Made in USA

More Info

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

  • All-purpose foot switch to turn on and leave it on without keeping your foot on the pedal.
  • Maintained action – Press once to turn on, press again to turn off (see picture).
  • Includes 8-foot cable with 3-pronged piggyback plug.
  • 15 A, 125 VAC, SPDT (wired normally open).
  • UL / CSA Certified and Made in USA.

The S420-1501 foot switch can be used to turn on and off electrical devices with a tap of your foot. Tap the pedal once at the front (toe) end to turn it on, then tap again at the other end to turn it off. You can remove your foot and it will stay on until you turn if off (like a light switch). Ideal for lighting, power tools, office equipment, and more. This foot switch is constructed with a steel housing and a solid steel shaft for added toughness. It has a 15-amp, 125 VAC electrical rating (which is the same as the wall outlet current in the US). The 15-amp rating far exceeds the 4-amp rating of common comparable models to make it very versatile. Includes an 8-foot cable and 3-pronged piggyback plug (NEMA 5-15 series). To hook it up to your device, simply plug the pedal into your wall outlet (US only), and then plug your device into the back of that plug, and the foot switch will now be in line with the device. Enclosure rating: UL/CSA/NEMA Type 1 and IEC 60529 IP20. For indoor use in dry environments. CSA Certified and UL Listed to US and Canadian standards. Size: 4.2″ L x 3.4″ W x 1.5″ H, plus the cable. One year warranty on parts and labor. Made in the USA by The SSC Controls Company.

 

I use an on/off foot pedal foot switch (different model, manufacturer and specs) for hands free control of my March Pump while brewing.  One foot press turns the pump on or off. Other possible applications could be to control a keg washer or draft line cleaning pump.  Note: Always be cautious when using your pump with hot liquids and read and follow manufacturers directions.

Thanks to HBF Reader Seth for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF], Seth Says: “Something that I have started doing is using plant stand rollers for moving my carboys around the house. They usually have a very high weight limit because potted plants can be extremely heavy. I even have some that are made of wood that have slats in them and if my carboys has a port I’ll run my hose through it so i don’t agitate my beer once it’s settled.”

Note from HBF: The pictured and linked planter caddy is an example.  Search below for other possible models.  Make sure the one you choose is properly sized and rated for your intended application.
