More Info

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

Reap the benefits of fermenting under pressure! Pressurized fermentation is a great option for creating lager-like flavor profiles at room temperature, without the hassle of temperature control. And you’ll complete your fermentations faster and easier than traditional fermentation methods. What’s more, you can even capture carbonation for naturally carbonated beers! The Blichmann Engineering™ Spunding Valve is purpose built for homebrewers to control your pressures with exacting precision. Research by Blichmann Engineering™ and White Labs shows significant reduction of esters (fruity flavors found in most ales) and low levels of diacetyl, by fermenting under pressure. Start fermenting under pressure easily with the Blichmann Spunding Valve!

  • Ferment under pressure to produce clean, low ester, lager-like beers.
  • Extremely fine adjustments from 0 to 35 psi, and superb pressure stability.
  • Suitable for vessels up to 42 gal (1BBL batch size).
  • Perfect for naturally carbonating your beers.
  • Use for counter-pressure transfers.
  • NPT model is perfect for the Blichmann Engineering™ Cornical™ Unitank.
  • Integral blow-off barb fitting adds a visual indication of fermentation if desired.

 

Spunding Valves have loads of uses!  Check my post Build a Spunding Valve for lots more information and step by step directions, if you’re interested in building your own.

Great Fermentations is quick to pick up Blichmann gear.  They currently have both versions.  Prices start at $69.99 and both fall under GF’s flat rate shipping promo.  Check site for current availability and pricing.

Blichmann QuickCarb

Blichmann QuickCarb via Austin Homebrew Supply


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

The Patent Pending QuickCarb from Blichmann Engineering is a revolutionary simple new way to carbonate a 5 gal keg of beer in less than an hour! This uses a simple circulating pump and a unique stainless steel diffusion stone to carbonate your beer precisely and quickly with no chance of accidentally overcarbonating your beer!

  • 90% carbonated and ready to drink in less than an hour with no risk of overcarbonation! Let it sit for a day for dialing in that final few percent.
  • Quiet and dependable operation
    Great for all beer styles!
  • All stainless diffusion stone and QuickConnector fittings makes cleaning a breeze

  • Easy to clean and sanitize
  • Simply add an optional oxygen regulator and you’ll be able to use the components to oxygenate your wort before pitching your yeast!

Prices and availability were accurate at the time this post was published; however, they may differ from those you see when you visit the product page.  Check the product page for current price, description and availability

Buy a Blichmann Therminator Wort Chiller – Get a Free $20 Gift Card

Therminator Wort Chiller

Therminator Wort Chiller via Austin Homebrew Supply


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

The Therminator is the fastest way to chill wort to yeast pitching temperature and get fermentation off to a quick, bacteria-free start. The Therminator is able to Chill 10 gal (37.8 L) of wort in 5 minutes to 68°F (20°C) using 58°F (14.4°C) cooling water flowing at 5 gal/min (19 L/min).

  • All 316 stainless steel plates and fittings.
  • Identical to commercial brewery chillers.
  • Brazed together with pure copper in an oxygen free furnace.
  • No potential leaks like a gasketed unit.
  • Super low restriction makes this ideal for gravity feed.
  • Easy to clean and sanitize.
  • Male garden hose thread connections for water in/out.
  • 1/2″ male NPT fittings for wort in/out.
  • Low water consumption.
  • Comes with heavy gauge stainless mounting bracket.
  • Compact: 7.5 x 4 x 3 (19 x 10.2 x 7.6 cm)

The therminator has male garden hose fittings for the water in and out. If you are attaching a regular garden hose to it, you will need a female to female adapter.

The Plate Chiller Backflush Adapter makes it easy to attach a garden hose to the NPT threads of the heat exchanger to simplify washing. It can either be looped to pump hot cleaning solution (such as PBW) using a pump, or it can be attached to a faucet using a kitchen sink-to-garden hose adapter to push hot water through in the opposite direction of the normal wort flow.

Also recommended are the Blichmann QuickConnect fittings. These allow you to easily attach either 3/8″ or 1/2″ tubing to the wort side of the chiller. With these fittings, everything that touches the wort is either stainless steel or silicone. They install without tools, are easy to disassemble, and sanitizing is easy. You need one fitting for the wort in, and one for wort out. See below to add.
