Carbonator Cap – $10.94 Shipped

The Carbonater

This fits on 1L and 2L size PET Bottles.  The ball lock connector allows you to pressurize a PET bottle for transporting or preserving the carbonation level of your homebrew (Squeeze out the air in the headspace first to minimize oxygen pickup).  You can also use this to quickly carbonate homebrew and fine tune carbonation levels (maybe for competition entry).

11/26/15 10 AM Central: This is selling for just $5.95 + $4.99 shipping.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

New 2.5 Gallon Ball Locks… $75 – Back in Stock

AIH New Double Rubber Handle 2.5 Gal Keg

Brand new, double rubber handle 2.5 gallon ball lock kegs.  ISO 9001 and NSF Certified via Adventures in Homebrewing.  14.5″ Tall x 8.25″ in diameter.

Double rubber handles are generally preferable to single metal strap handles – you have… two handles vs one that means they are easier to grab and move and they allow the keg to be easily inverted for draining and drying.

2.5 Gallon kegs fit nicely in a 5 gallon bucket full of ice.  They are also nice for splitting 5 gallon batches, serving homebrew on the go and small space kegging.

I have both the 2.5 gallon and the  5 gallon version of this keg (See: Review – AIH 5 Gallon Ball Lock) and like both of them very much.

These have been sold out.  As of this posting, they are available again.

2L Swing Top Growler – $23.95

2L Brown Swing Top Growler

I have this growler and I love it.  High quality, great design.  German style design with a flip top cap.  Works with a #10 stopper if you want to use this for starters.

Growler Filling Tips and Tricks
Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers

New… Big Mouth 1 Gallon Modular Mini-Keg!

Big Mouth™ Modular Mini-Keg

Northern Brewer has just released the Big Mouth Modular Mini Keg.  It comes either as a 1 gallon mini keg or with the addition of an expansion kit it acts as a full 5 gallon ball lock keg.  It also… disassembles.  You can… take the mini keg apart and throw it in your dishwasher.

from Northern Brewer: When the party is over, Big Mouth™ completely disassembles to fit in a dishwasher. Effortlessly clean every nook and cranny.

Modularity means more than just a cleaner, more sanitary keg. It’s expandable. Start with the mini-keg for small batches or quickly kegging and carbonating a partial batch. Pop in the 5 gallon expansion pack (sold separately) when you’re ready for bigger brew days, and collapse back to 1 gallon for keeping it in your fridge or party-ready portability.

Equipped with a revolutionary access port for easy flavor additions. Hang a hop bag or oak spiral from the included hook to customize any batch. Plus, the smaller port means easier sealing and less chance of oxidation.
