The BrewJacket Immersion Pro Fermentation Temperature Control System

The BrewJacket Immersion Pro Fermentation Temperature Control System via Austin Homebrew Supply


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

Introducing The BrewJacket Immersion Pro, a compact liquid cooler that allows you to create world class ales and lagers without a refrigerator and thermostat setup. This complete fermentation temperature control system brings your fermenting beer down as low as 35 F (20 C) below the ambient temperature in your house and can even use the ambient temperature to heat your wort back up if the temperature drops too low. Utilizing a solid state cooling systems, the Immersion Pro pulls heat out of your beer through the hard anodized transfer rod, through a cooling chip and finally to a heat sink where it is fanned out, no need for compressors, pumps or glycol. The upgraded Immersion Pro can even reverse this process, bringing ambient heat back into wort through the transfer rod to raise the temperature in your beer.

This system is also super simply to operate, with only two buttons and displays. The buttons raise and lower the set temperature, while the displays provide a real time readout of both the target temperature and the current temperature in your fermenter. The compact design of the BrewJacket Immersion Pro makes cleaning and storage a breeze. The Immersion’s rod easily unscrews, allowing you to place inside your fermenter when sanitizing prior to use. After your beer has completed fermentation, clean the transfer rod with soap and hop water using a kitchen sponge and let rod air dry.

4 Pack Propper Starter Canned Wort – $11.04, $2.76 Each + free ship eligible

Propper Starter Canned Wort via MoreBeer


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

Propper Starter™ is condensed wort in a can, allowing you to make a yeast starter in minutes! No need to make a mess in the kitchen measuring out DME, and no need to waste time boiling and cooling before you pitch your yeast. Simply open a can of Propper Starter™, pour it into your flask along with 16 oz of bottled or distilled water, then add your yeast. It’s that simple!

Comes in 4-packs. One can of Propper Starter™ with 16 oz of water will make a 1L starter with a gravity of 1.040. It is recommended to use the 1:1 dilution rate, regardless of the original gravity of your wort.

Yeast starters offer higher cell counts at the time the yeast is pitched, leading to faster, healthier fermentations and better tasting beer! They’re especially recommended if brewing beers that have an original gravity of 1.060 or higher.

Instructions:

  • Sanitize flask, stir bar, top of can and yeast pack
  • Swirl and open can, then pour contents into flask
  • Add 16 oz of bottled or distilled water to flask
  • Pitch yeast and swirl flask to mix
  • Add stir bar to flask, cover with foil, and mix on stir plate*

Recommended Use:

  • For high gravity beers (1.060 OG or higher)
  • For cold pitching lagers
  • For yeast packs that recommend a starter
  • For yeast packs nearing expiration

Ingredients: water, barley malt extract, yeast nutrient

Shelf life of 12 months. Store at room temperature.

Control Devices Adjustable Pressure Relief Valve [0 to 100 PSI] – $10.44 + Building a Spunding Valve

Control Devices CR Series Brass Pressure Relief Valve, 0-100 psi Adjustable Pressure Range, 1/4" Male NPT

Brass Pressure Relief Valve, 0-100 psi Adjustable Pressure Range, 1/4″ Male NPT by Control Devices.

This valve is the heart of my Spunding Valve build.  It is essentially a manually adjustable pressure relief valve.  This one is adjustable from 0 to 100 PSI.  There is no homebrewing-related situation I’m aware of that would have you at 100 PSI.  Generally you’d be at or below 30 PSI.  As always, you’ll want to ensure that all components in your system (kegs, tubing, etc) are rated for your desired pressure.  Also, always read and follow manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines.

Inkbird ITC-308 – Dual Stage Digital Temperature Controller | Review | Inkbird Deals

Homebrew Temp Controller Roundup! – Kegerator and Fermentation – concepts, applications and models

Pictured: Inkbird ITC-308 – via Amazon [Hands on Review]

Temperature controllers, sometimes referred to as over-riding thermostats, can control devices like refrigerators, freezers and fermentation heating devices to provide a consistent temperature for your kegerator, fermentation chamber or brew system.  They do this by monitoring the temperature and cycling on and off the device in question.  Generally, you will set the device to full cooling or heating power and the temperature controller takes over from there.

Wired and Unwired

Unwired means.. you have to hook up the electrical wiring.  It does not come with a plug-in cord.  The ITC-1000 is an example of an unwired controller.  That controller requires some additional materials, time and know-how to get working.  Wired means… no AC wiring is necessary, the controller comes with cords that you can plug your cooling and/or heating devices into.
