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.

Non-Contact Digital IR Thermometer – back at $4.26!

71Cy3fP+KnL._SL1181_

This infrared thermometer from Nubee measures in C or Fahrenheit has an auto off feature and a lower batter indicator.  It has a red laser pointer for precise aiming.  It also have a max temperature function.  With that it will take the highest temperature of the area tested.  The max is shown at the bottom of the display while the current temp is shown at the top.  US FDA, FCC, CE and ROHS Approved.

Since this is no touch, you can check the temp of yeast washing and yeast rehydration water and your starter wort without the risk of infection.  I find mine particularly useful for rehydrating yeast.

Infrared thermometers should not be considered a direct replacement for your standard thermometer.  A quality IR thermometer will give you a close approximation of surface temperatures.  Note that steam seems to throw off readings.  Uses include: Contained yeast rehydration water, chilled wort or starter temperature, kegerator, fermenter or fermenation area and beer tasting samples.  If you’re looking for a standard thermometer, consider these two Top FindsCDN DTQ450X – ThermoWorks Thermapen

Chemical Resistant Heavy Duty Sprayer – $3.56 + Hands on Review & Star San Tips

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
