12″ x 12″ Interlocking NSF Certified Drying Mats – $4.83

San Jamar VM5280 Versa-Mat Interlocking Bar Mat, 12" Length x 12" Width, Clear

12″ by 12″ interlocking bar mat by San Jamar.  These interlocking mats are versatile.  Multiple mats can be joined for larger areas and they are flexible and easy to cut to shape.  Allows for airflow under glassware.  NSF certified.

Use to aid with drying of beer glasses and homebrew gear.  Also in your kegerator or fermentation chamber to aid with airflow and circulation.

I purchased a number of these in 2015 and have since found them very handy.  I use them for drying brew day gear and glassware and also underneath my fermenter in my fermentation deep freeze to improve airflow and keep the fermenter out of any condensation that might show up).

HBF Reader Brian Says: “These are great. I lined the bottom of my new keezer with these mats. They were pretty easy to cut-to-fit with wire cutters. Saved me a mess already by keeping the kegs out of spilled beer while I figured out shanks, lines, fixed leaks and such. I pulled everything, pulled the mats and sent a child in to clean the bottom of the keezer.”

Ball Lock Keg Jumper Post – Clean Draft Lines – $5.99

BALL LOCK KEG QD JUMPER POST FOR CLEANING

via Brew Hardware.  This custom fitting is designed to allow you to connect two ball lock QDs together for the purpose of cleaning your draft lines more quickly and easily.

About this fitting

from Brew Hardware: “Maybe this is a strange idea but that’s how we roll. This custom made fitting allows you to connect a liquid ball lock coupler/disconnect to both sides. It’s made so that the poppet is depressed to get full flow through both lines. Why?  If you’ve got a multiple faucet kegerator, you’re probably used to cleaning your lines one tap at a time. There are a lot of different ways to run cleaner through the lines whether it be pumping, or maybe even dispensing BLC or other cleaners through by pressurizing a spare keg. The BEST way to clean lines is to use a pump because cleaner in motion works better than static. Here’s how we do it. We use a chugger pump fed from a spare pot or cooler and the output of the pump goes into the first faucet (simply clamp the hose on to the nozzle). The serving line goes to this ball lock jumper fitting, then into the serving line of the next faucet. On the outside of this faucet you can either run it back into your cleaner reservoir or continue to daisy chain to as many faucets as you have.

The beauty of this method is that you don’t have to take your disconnects off the lines or take them apart for cleaning. The cleaner goes through everything. You can also use it with only one QD attached which would then just hold the poppet open for you.” [keep reading]

 

HBF Reader [8 Ways to Connect with HBF] Josh Says: “I use two of these, along with my Mark II Keg Washer, and silicone tubing between my Perlick faucets, to make a loop through all three of my taps in order to recirculate BLC for a good 30 – 60 minutes. Works great!”

Shipping is a Flat $7.99 with a $150 order or free with a $299 order.  Check out recently featured Brew Hardware Finds.

PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.

Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.
