12 Food Grade Silicone Airlock Grommets – $7.99 + free shipping

12 QRP PLASTIC LID AIRLOCK GROMMETS 1/16" Groove White Food Grade Silicone for fermenting in Mason Jars ~ Bulk Quantities Available

12 White Silicone Grommets.  BPA Free, made from food grade silicone.  Insert into a 9/16″ hole.


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

  • ALL QRP® parts and products are BPA-free USDA Food Grade Compliant and are produced by a reputable food container manufacturer.
  • Includes 12 White Silicone GROMMETS fit any brand Mason jar plastic caps (1/16″ groove). THE 1/16″ GROOVE IS TOO NARROW FOR GLASS LIDS. Grommet easily inserts into 9/16″ lid hole (1/2″ may be too tight, pushing the airlock into the lid may cause the lid to crack; 5/8″ may cause a loose fit for the grommet). Grommet center hole is 3/8″ and is the standard size for Fermentation Airlocks.
  • QRP GROMMETS are made of USDA Food Grade BPA-free Compliant White Silicone and produced by a reputable food container manufacturer.

Use to add an airlock port to a container of your choosing.  I know of several grommet offerings, most don’t claim to be food grade.  That’s probably not a big deal considering that most of the time this gets little to no contact with your beer.  Having said that, it’s nice to have a food grade option.

Eva Dry E-500 Dehumidifier [Fix Kegerator Condensation] – $19.27 + free shipping, best price

eva dry e500 kegerator condensation

Like many homebrewers and craft beer lovers, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs. Eva Dry Kegerator Condensation The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry E-500.  The Eva-Dry E-500 contains desiccant beads  that absorb moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry E-500 is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  I also use on of these in my fermentation chamber.
