march stainless pump

High flow March High Temp, High Flow homebrew pump via MoreBeer

More Info

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

The famous March brewing pump is now available with a stainless head. Having sold pumps for all grain brewing for 20 years, MoreBeer! can recommend this pump as having the longest lasting motor. This is the exact same pump as the famous 815pl (our H315HF) but with stainless head.

Because the pump is magnetic, where the magnet spins on the other side of a sealed wall, it is seal-less and easy to sanitzie. All the parts that come in contact with liquid are made of Stainless Steel, Teflon, Silicone or Ryton/Teflon/Glass. The standard motor can be run on either 50 or 60 hertz (there are performance differences between the hertz options). The 815-SS Beer Pump motor has a six foot cord, a plug, and a base.

  • Max flow 7 gpm at 4.5 feet
  • Max head of 18.6 feet (or around 8 psi)
  • Single phase, 115V, .04 hp fan cooled motor
  • In/Out – 1/2″ MPT
  • Max liquid temperature 250F (121C)
  • Max internal pressure of 150 psi

Cereal Killer Grain Mill + $83.40 + Free Shipping & AG Kits that Ship for Free + Hands on Review

The Cereal Killer Grain Mill gets consistently great feedback and is one of our Top Finds.  This is a great mill!  Check out my Hands on Review.

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  2.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  You know what the crush is going to be since you set it.  3.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain at a discount, and 3.  The shelf life of unmilled grain is longer than pre-milled grain.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer.

As of this posting, this great mill is on sale for $99.99 and includes free shipping to addresses in the lower 48 US states.  Check AHS for up to the minute price and availability.

Stacks With: As of this posting AHS is discounting most things by a whopping 16.59% when you place a qualifying $49 order.  This ties AHS’ 2018 Black Friday Sale as one of the top % off deals I’ve seen from AHS.  Use coupon code US1659 to get the deal.  Check Austin Homebrew Supply for current availability.  That makes this great mill just $83.40 AND… free shipping is still in play.

ThermoWorks RT600C Super Fast Thermometer – $20.40, 15% off + Hands on Review

RT600C SUPER-FAST ® POCKET THERMOMETER - WHITE, CHARCOAL, OR YELLOW

RT600C Digital thermometer [Review – previous version] from ThermoWorks makers of the nearly universally lauded Thermapen

Features: Highest accuracy in its class, to ±0.9°F (±0.5°C), Range from -40 to 302°F (-40 to 150°C)
IP65 waterproof rating, 5-6 second Super-Fast® probe, 4.7-inch probe length for deeper reach
5,000-hour battery life, 2-year warranty.

This is a great home brewing thermometer that I can confidently recommend.  It’s accurate, has a quick response time and it is waterproof.  Waterproof as in… toss it in the dishwasher kind of waterproof.  Take the temperature of your strike water, mash, sparge water, starter wort and lots more.

More About the RT600C

The RT600C digital pocket thermometer has been Rated #1 by a leading Cook’s Magazine. This ThermoWorks digital pocket thermometer reads temperatures in just 5 seconds. A Super-Fast® digital thermometer, the RT600C is currently in use in thousands of restaurants, food plants, labs and is carried by health inspectors worldwide. It’s the perfect instant-read thermometer, and the affordable choice for home or commercial use. Now in 3 colors!

Improved Accuracy
The RT600C is a super accurate pocket thermometer that’s accurate to ±0.9°F – up to 212°F. This accuracy is only found in professional thermometers. The RT600C has been thoroughly tested against NIST-traceable standards.

Speed
The RT600C digital pocket thermometer is faster than any other thermometer in this price range! The reduced tip is only 1/16″ diameter and complies with USDA meat thermometer requirements. Fully speed-tested in the ThermoWorks Standards Lab to ensure the thermometer reaches within 1°F of the final temperature in only 5-6 seconds (at any temperature in the range).

Long 4.7-inch Probe
Reach into the center of roasts and keep hands away from hot surfaces with the 4.7-inch probe. Store the RT600C when not in use with a convenient probe cover which doubles as an extension handle for an even longer reach.

Longer Battery Life
The RT600C digital pocket thermometer uses a reliable CR2032 battery with circuit improvements to reliably allow for 5,000 hours of continuous thermometer use between battery changes.

Max/Min Function
The RT600C digital pocket thermometer saves the highest and lowest temperatures since your last reset. The thermometer is great for checking dishwasher, fridge or freezer temps. When you pull your roast or turkey from the oven, insert the instant-read thermometer and leave it while the meat rests so you know the highest temperature reading. Max/Min records the high and low over a period of up to 1 hour, when the auto-off shuts the unit down. Max/Min will start with new values when the thermometer is turned back on.

Auto-Off after 1 Hour
If left on, the RT600C digital pocket thermometer will automatically shut down after 1 hour; still long enough to make the Max/Min function useful. What good is Max/Min memory if the thermometer turns off too soon? If you need to record Max/Min for longer than 1 hour, see the RT600B, that does not have an Auto-Off feature, for recording over longer periods.

Tough Commercial Design
The RT600C digital pocket thermometer has been designed with minimal food and grime traps. Rubberized button panels are sealed and withstand temperatures to 190°F (for commercial dishwasher testing). No welded or braised joints on the thermometer probe that would shelter microbes or create likely breakage points. The RT600C is designed to survive short term, shallow immersion – you can wash the thermometer under the tap or use it with wet hands. Rated to IP65. NSF approved for use in commercial food applications.

Warranty
The RT600C comes with a two-year coverage on material and workmanship including any failure in the thermometer circuit. Includes online, email and phone access to the ThermoWorks technical service group.

 

As of this posting, this is selling for $24. Check ThermoWorks for current price and availability.

Stacks With: ThermoWorks has discounted everything they carry site-wide by 15%  This also bundles with existing specials and sales.  No coupon code is necessary.  Discount will be automatically added in your cart. That deal makes this great thermometer $20.40.

Eva Dry E-500 Dehumidifier [Fix Kegerator Condensation] – $19.27 + free prime ship

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.

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap for PET Bottles – works on gas AND liquid posts – $10.38 + Hands on Review & Draft Line Cleaning Builds

Ferroday Stainless Carbonation Cap Counter Pressure Bottle Filling With 5/16" Barb,CO2 Coupling To Carbonate Soda Beer Fruit Juice Water

Stainless steel ball lock carbonation cap with barb.  Includes replacement o-ring.


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

  • 304 stainless steel will last a lifetime
  • Carbonate,cleaning your beer lines
  • Use it to counter pressure bottle fill PET bottles
  • Easy to install and use,with extra one piece of o-ring for replacement

“The post on this unique carbonation cap has been machined ,so it fit BOTH the liquid and gas ball lock disconnects.”


PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.

Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.

Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed two draft line cleaning projects using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

One of the questions that arises on these carb caps, is… does it work with both liquid and gas posts?  Some models are universal fit and some work only with gas posts.  For draft line cleaning projects to work well, at least in my opinion, the carb cap that’s used needs to be universal.  I’m happy to report that the one I received did indeed work with both liquid and ball lock posts.  Check out my Hands on Review of this great carb cap.
