6 Universal Poppets [Ball & Pin Lock Kegs] – $7.99, $1.33 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.

  • Dual Scale: Brix 0-32% and Specific Gravity 1.000-1.130 refractometer

For me, getting a refractometer was one of those upgrades that made a lot of difference.  With a refractometer you need a sample size of two drops.  I figured that this would pay for itself in beer savings alone.  I also had just broken my hydrometer and came to the realization that hydrometers are made of breakable glass that can break! 🙂

Refractometers can be used to measure gravity throughout the brewing process.  You can also estimate the alcohol content of your beer if you forget to take an OG with the use of a refractometer and a hydrometer.  Check out Sean Terrill’s excellent refractometer calculator.

BrewDog: Craft Beer for the People Kindle Edition

BrewDog: Craft Beer for the People Kindle Edition by Richard Taylor,‎ James Watt,‎ Martin Dickie

About, from the book description: “BrewDog’s first beer book is a brilliant intro to the world of craft beer.

It includes a look at what makes craft beer great and how it’s made, explains how to understand different beer styles, how to cook with beer and match beers and food, right through to how to brew your own at home. It’s not just about BrewDog’s beers either – plenty of other excellent breweries and their beers from around the world are featured. This book is both a window into the BrewDog world and a repository of essential craft beer information.

Designed in the highly individual style of the brand, the book also includes quirky features such as spaces to place your drop of beer once you’ve ticked a particular beer off your ‘to-drink’ list and pull-out beer mats.”
