Chemical Resistant Heavy Duty Sprayer – $3.56 + Hands on Review & Star San Tips

32 Ounce Chemical Resistant Bottle and Sprayer from Chemical Guys.  Chemical resistant, Adjustable nozzle, professional grade.  A dilution guide is printed on the side of each bottle.

Use to spray things 🙂 around your brewery.  See: Star San Spray Bottle Method of Sanitizing

Chemical resistant plastic is a good thing when dealing with Sar San.  I used to store diluted Star San in a distilled water gallon jug.  When it eventually ate through the plastic and leaked all over… I realized that was a bad idea.

Feedback from HBF Reader Da Kine: “This is a great product. I had some bottles from Ace Hardware that lasted maybe 2 brews. Based on HBF’s hands-on review, I got some of these and they’ve lasted great over dozens of brews.”

I own this bottle and sprayer.  It worksimg_0057-300x225 great.  Check out my Hands on Review

10 Gallon Cooler to Mash Tun Conversion Kit – $68 + Hands on Review

cooler conversion kit

This Brew Hardware kit includes everything you need to convert a 10 gallon Igloo or Home Depot Rubbermaid Cooler to a Mash Tun.

This kit includes…

  • 12″ stainless steel domed false bottom with upgraded large ID connection elbow
  • One piece (Brew Hardware custom designed) machined bulkhead with interior barb
  • 2 piece stainless ball valve – can be upgraded to 3 piece
  • Required length of high temp silicone tubing
  • Does not include cooler or barb/camlock.  Barb and camlock fitting options are available under accessories on the right side of the screen.

from Brew Hardware: “What makes our kit different than the competition? Ugh, now we have to brag just a little. The bulkhead we include in this kit is custom machined out of hex bar stock to our exact specifications making it extremely simple to install and leak free from day one. It’s not a bunch of off the shelf parts made with half a roll of teflon tape. We also use a high flow elbow connector at the false bottom which also features a custom made smooth bore retainer. Long story short, we’ve held off on offering cooler false bottom kits for a long time until we had all the high end components described here.” [full product description]

Options are available both for an Igloo 10 gallon cooler and for Home Depot’s 10 gallon cooler.   A complete converted option is also available.  That includes the cooler along with your choice of connection fittings.  This is Flat Rate Shipping (with $150 order) and Free Shipping (with $299 order) eligible.

This is the conversion kit I use and it’s… awesome.   tn_img_0322-300x225Check out my Hands on Review.
