Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves… $3.99!

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Used whiskey barrels are popular… really popular.  5 and 10 gallon barrels usually sell out quickly when they become available.  They are also typically relatively expensive.

Adventures in Homebrewing has listed used bourbon barrel staves.  These sliced staves are approximately 1″ wide, 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 8-13″ in length.  They are from genuine Kentucky bourbon barrels.

Staves are a great way to get some of the barrel experience without the cost and space required for a barrel.  At $3.99 for 2, these are a bargain.

Two Grain Mill Deals + Benefits to Milling Your Own Grain

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  2.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain.  3.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer.

HBF Reader Feedback…

Anonymous… Bought this a few weeks ago. Love it. Much better than a corona mill.

Google+ Friend Kieran… Just used our Cereal Killer for the first time last month on a clone brew recipe. This thing is lights-out! We did not spring for the optional handle, and instead used a power drill.

Google+ Friend Chris… Used mine tonight, great deal, great mill.

Paul Says… “I have this mill and love it.”

Barley Crusher

I’ve used the Barley Crusher Mill for years and years.  Not sure exactly when I got it, but I’m pretty sure it was sometime in 2008.  That same mill continues to work great.  I can highly recommend this mill from personal experience.

MoreBeer has the Barley Crusher marked down to $134.99 and it ships for free.  No promo or coupon code is needed.  This discount should be reflected on the product page.

Cornelius Fermenter Lids… $5

Cornelius Keg Lid for Secondary Fermenter

Cornelius Fermenter Lid

Cornelius Keg Fermenter Lid via Adventures in Homebrewing.  It has a 3/4″ Hole that’s designed to accommodate a #3 drilled stopper (included) and airlock (also included).  That allows you use a Cornelius Keg as a fermenter.  Use a 5 gallon keg as a secondary for a 5 gallon batch, use a 5 gallon keg as a primary fermenter for smaller batches or use a 10 gallon Cornelius Keg as a fermenter for 5 gallon+ batches.  Also perfect for use with the PicoBrew Zymatic.

I have two 10 gallon kegs that I use as primaries.  This allows you to do quite a few things including, easily transfer under pressure, ferment under pressure, carbonate in the primary fermenter and carbonate and serve from the primary (with a cut off dip tube).

AIH has a Christmas in July Sale going on right now.  This had already been on sale for $9.99.  The Christmas in July sale cuts that in half making it just $5.
