Imagine a brewing pump that eliminates cavitation, is easy to clean, has a built in valve, and is quiet. Introducing The RipTide pump from Blichmann, the first pump designed specifically for homebrewing.

We love this brew pump. Like a brewer wired on coffee, let us rattle off some of our favorite features.  First, the pull style relief valve that allows air to exit the pump head so the impeller won’t cavitate is a genius addition. Our next favorite feature is the bad-ass, built-in flow control valve so you don’t have to add additional ball-valves. While we dont manually clean our pumps very often we like the idea that we can easily do that with the clover clamp style connection. That might be particularly important if you are transferring cool wort where extra sanitation might make a difference.  Equally cool is the noise, or lack thereof, when operating. It just wears on you to hear your pump grinding away all day. The RipTide pump isn’t silent, but it is much quieter.  And to top it all off we like the mounting base and the extra long 9′ cord. 9′ gets the plug connection a few feet away from where we are brewing and less likely to be exposed to water – a simple upgrade that is really nice.  Oh, and we almost forgot the power switch which is always a nice feature on something electric!

All in all this is a no brainer upgrade for the difference in cost.

Features:

  • Strong rare earth magnets and a curved blade impeller provide 7 GPM and up to 21 ft of lift
  • Tri-Clamp head disassembles easily for cleaning
  • 1/2″ NPT inlet and outlet
  • Motor is enclosed in a splash proof and super quiet case
  • Rotatable stainless steel head
  • Integrated air release vent allows you to easily prime the pump everytime without those frustrating air bubbles and cavitation
  • Linear flow valve provided for excellent flow control
  • Power switch on base
  • 10 ft. long power cord with 120V plug

Blichmann Beergun V2 – Beat MAP Pricing via Bell’s Brewery Equipment Sale & Hands on Review

BLICHMANN BEERGUN™ V2

Blichmann Beergun V2 via Bell’s Brewery General Store

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

Let’s face it, we all love the simplicity and convenience of kegging, but hate the inconvenience of bottling for transporting our beer. We either deal with complicated counter-pressure (CP) fillers or put up with the oxygenation and foaming of filling from a tap. Or just give up on bottling altogether. Until now that is!

The BeerGun from Blichmann Engineering is a revolutionary new bottle filler that eliminates the complication and time-consuming operation and cleaning of traditional counter pressure (CP) bottle fillers used to fill bottles from kegs. The Quiescent Flow Technology; of the BeerGun eliminates the complication of CP fillers, while maintaining the primary function – purging a bottle with CO2 (no oxygen pick-up) and filling it with minimal foaming and carbonation loss.

The other main feature is the intuitively obvious operation and very simple sanitation procedure. Couple this with the auto fill level and ability to fill any depth bottle without modification makes this filler a clear standout. And since it’s from Blichmann Engineering you know it’s high quality, well engineered, and easy to use!

Quiescent Flow Technology; is so different and so easy to use it’s patent pending!! At Blichmann Engineering, we set our vision on developing a product to perform a function from the ground up, not just improve on today’s designs. So instead of pressurizing a bottle to keg pressure like CP fillers do to reduce foaming – with all its complicated valving and cumbersome operation – we designed a filler that gradually reduces the beer from keg pressure to atmospheric pressure with little turbulence. The result is a consistent bottle fill with little foaming and no oxygen pick-up.

Foaming is caused predominantly by turbulence and sudden changes in pressure. The unique design of the BeerGun eliminates the need to pressurize the bottle by providing a non-throttling, quick-acting valve placed at the BOTTOM of the filler stem, and a beer delivery system that is very low in turbulence. All current designs use a valve at the TOP of the filler. Placing the valve at the bottom not only allows the valve to be quickly immersed in the beer, further reducing pressure change and turbulence, it keeps the stem full of beer at all times. Traditional fillers, or filling from a tap with a hose, forces the beer down an empty tube each time, kicking up foam along the way.

And since the beer is sealed in the filler stem when the BeerGun is removed from the bottle, it automatically provides a consistent bottle fill level when the stem is removed!

These features, coupled with a CO2 jacketing tube for bottle purging, and ergonomic valve actuators, means filling a bottle is faster, intuitively obvious, more accurate, and easier than ever before! And since a pressurizing stopper isn’t required, you can fill any depth bottle without buying different stem lengths or adding plastic hose extensions.

With the BeerGun from Blichmann Engineering, filling a bottle is as simple as pushing a valve for CO2 purge, and then pulling a trigger for beer. It’s that simple!!
