Brennan Industries 6505-02-04 Steel Straight Tube Fitting, 1/8″-27 NPTF x 7/16″-20 SAE Thread, 1/4″ Male NPTF x 1/4″ Female JIC Swivel

If I’m reading these specifications correctly, I believe that this *may* fill in for the (often difficult to find) fitting featured in Style 1 of my Spunding Valve Build.   cln_tn_spundingA Spunding Valve allows you to ferment under pressure, naturally and precisely carbonate in the keg, fix over-carbonated beers and more.See: [Build a Spunding Valve].  I plan to order this fitting and give it a try.

Bel-Art Spinbar Teflon Octagon Magnetic Stirring Bar – 25.4 x 8mm – now $4.68 + Free Add On Shipping

Bel-Art Spinbar Teflon Octagon Magnetic Stirring Bar; 25.4 x 8mm, White (F37110-0001)

Bel-Art Spinbar Teflon Octagon Magnetic Stirring Bar; 25.4 x 8mm, White (F37110-0001)


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

  • Octagonal shape creates more turbulence and a stronger vortex than a round, cylindrical shape or a polygonal shape
  • Teflon (PTFE) casing is chemically inert, can be used with corrosive chemicals, and helps reduce friction and wear while spinning
  • Built-in pivot ring helps reduce vibration and wear during stirring
  • Internal magnet made from alnico V, an alloy of aluminum, nickel, iron, and cobalt
  • Casing material is FDA approved for use in food, drug, and cosmetic applications

Use along with an Erlenmeyer Flask and Stir Plate to do Stir Plate Yeast Starters.

Why a Stir Plate? The constant motion of a stir plate integrates oxygen, puts yeast in constant contact with nutrients, relieves built up CO2 and generally helps yeast to grow more rapidly.  That also means smaller starters.

5 Universal Poppets – $6.59, $1.32 Each + Tip & Keg Parts Roundup

81k3oihahkl-_sl1500_

5 universal keg poppets.  Stainless steel construction, replaceable o-rings.  Will fit almost any style of soda kegs.

Related: Keg Repair Parts and O-Rings Roundup

I use universal poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.  Tip: Universal poppets fit the vast majority of kegs without issue.  I have had a couple kegs that ended up being a bit too tight with these.  It’s an easy fix.  Use a pair of wire cutters or Nipper Pliers to trim the universal poppet.  I suggest taking off about half of a coil and testing.  You want the QD to slide on easily and for it to reliably hold pressure when the QD is off.  Taking off a half of a coil and testing helps you make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.
