More Info

from MoreBeer…

Set of four used ball-lock kegs and four complete o-ring rebuild kits plus free shipping. Each rebuild kit includes 5 o-rings – one for the lid, 2 for the body connects, and 2 for the dip tubes.  These 4 Packs ship free, which means a great value for you!

A great price on unrebuilt kegs.  These kegs could have residual soda syrup inside and will need to be cleaned. Most will hold pressure but it is possible some will not.  To totally rebuild the keg, to ensure no pressure leaks,  you should also consider a new relief valve and poppets (part number listed below).

To clean the inside Alkaline Brewery Wash works great for eating away sticky residual soda residue. Kegs will come with some stickers from their use as soda syrup kegs. Stickers can be removed with effort.

The body connnects on a keg are the metal posts where the quick disconnects attach too. They should be removed for cleaning and sanitizing before each use. Kegs can come with either 11/16″ body connects or 7/8″ body connects. We sell deep sockets for the removal of either one. So if you do not have these sockets at home and want to make sure you can disassemble the kegs you may want to purchase both sockets below. Then you will always be covered as your keg collection grows.

Ball lock corny kegs are approximately 8.5″ Diam. x 25″ Height. 26 1/4″ Height with Flare fittings. Measurements may vary slightly.

Cali Mountain Pale Ale – from $18.99

MoreBeer has released Cali Mountain Pale Ale, available in both all grain and extract versions.  Cali Mountain Pale Ale is MoreBeer’s take on Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

More about Cali Mountain Pale Ale

from MoreBeer…

Our Cali Mountain Pale Ale is an attempt at one of the most iconic pale ales in the country: Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale. This pale ale is a fairly simple recipe, cosisting of Briess 2-Row, Crystal 60L, and four hop additions. This being said, don’t be fooled. The flavors blend together perfectly, creating a complex yet easy to drink homebrew.

The bittering hop additions are Magnum and Perle which provide a clean bitterness that balances the sweetness from the Crystal 60L malt perfectly. The aroma hop and dry hop additions are both Cascade, providing a citrus & floral aroma as fresh as the forests in California’s mountains!

Estimated OG: 1.052-1.057
SRM: 9-11
Estimated IBU’s: 37-41
Estimated alcohol ABV%: 5.4-5.8%

New at MoreBeer: Fermentasaurus Conical Fermenter!

from MoreBeer…

“The Fermentasaurus is a unique, game changing conical fermenter for homebrewing. It is the perfect choice if you want to see your fermentation, dump trub, collect yeast, and even carbonate all in one vessel without any transfers or siphons.  Made from clear PET the Fermentasauras offers the classic benefits of a conical shape without the cost of stainless. It will drastically cut down on oxidation by removing any need to rack your beer to a secondary vessel. And perhaps most amazingly it can be pressurized like a keg with the addition of the optional Fermentasaurus pressure kit.

The Fermentasaurus has a large 35L (9.25 gallons) size that makes it easy to ferment 5 gallon batches. The standard lid has a built in stopper and comes with an airlock. There is a butterfly dump valve at the base of the cone with a 500 ml harvesting container. This makes it very simple to remove the yeast at the bottom of your fermenter without exposing your beer to oxygen. The handy harvesting container also allows you to store the yeast to use on your next batch! The dump valve has been designed so that no threads are immersed in liquid making it easy to clean. Other fermenters will use ball valves that are very difficult to clean without completely disassembling them.

The Fermentasaurus is produced in Australia after four years of R&D. This fermenter is the world’s first conical PET fermenter that is pressurizable up to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi) letting you go from fermenting to serving without transfering to another vessel. You also have the option of fermenting under pressure which reduces esters and fusel alcohols allowing you to ferment warmer than you normally would. If you do choose to transfer your beer you can do it under pressure straight into a keg or other vessel with little to no oxygen exposure.”

Features:

  • 35 L total volume
  • Screw top lid with airlock
  • Rated up to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi) (Do not pressurize the Fermentasaurus without the pressure kit, FE101)
  • Dump valve for dumping the yeast and trub
  • 304 stainless steel frame
  • Volume marker sticker down side of tank
  • 500 ml collection ball below dump valve

Dimensions:

  • Total height with airlock – 37.6 in.
  • Total diameter – 14.9 in.
  • Tank height – 27.1 in.
  • Tank diameter – 13.5 in.

As of this posting, this is available for pre-order for just $119.99.  Shipping is free to most US addresses.  Check MoreBeer for up to the minute price, description and availability.

First Looks: Intertap Faucets and Accessories!

Intertap Faucets are a forward sealing faucet similar to the Perlicks. Intertap Faucets have a unique modular, threaded spout design which can fit a variety of different attachments including a growler filler, stout spout and ball lock post

There are four different faucets available: Chrome plated, stainless steel, stainless steel with flow control, and gold plated stainless steel with flow control.

It’s time for my kegerator to get an upgrade.  I purchased four of these faucets to replace my older Perlicks and also picked up the stout spout and ball lock connector.

Here’s a first look at these faucets and accessories.  Look for a full review in the near future.

I went with the forward sealing stainless steel Intertap.  Other styles are also available.

Update: Mark II Keg & Carboy Cleaner… As a Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump!

cln_img_9654

The Mark II Keg and Carboy Washer [Review] can clean a lot of your homebrewing gear.  Kegs, Carboys, Speidel Fermenters, Tubing, Small Parts & Pieces, Buckets, Keggles and more.

A small hardware purchase can convert your Keg and Carboy Washer over to an efficient ball lock draft line cleaning pump.

Cue drumroll.  And… It’s this thing…

Free shipping Stainless steel Carbonation Cap w/ 5/16" Barb, Ball Lock Type, fit soft drink PET bottles, Homebrew Kegging
Stainless steel Carbonation Cap w/ 5/16″ Barb, Ball Lock Type, fit soft drink PET bottles, Homebrew Kegging

This is a stainless steel ball lock carbonator cap that is typically intended to use with 1L and 2L PET (soda type) bottles for force carbing and transporting beer (soda, etc).  Why does it include a barb?  I have no idea, but it comes in really handy for this purpose.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: I have heard that this fitting no longer works with BOTH liquid and gas ball lock QDs.  That is an important feature for this project.

Consider these alternatives (As of this update, both claim to work with both gas and liquid posts, check description for up to the minute details)..

cln_img_9641A photo of just the carbonator capcln_img_9644A carbonator cap would typically work with a gas QD and this does.cln_img_9642However, it also works (easily) with a liquid QD.  Not sure why it’s designed like this, but it is and this is another important feature.cln_img_9646To adapt the Keg and Carboy Cleaner for Ball Lock draft lines just attach the stainless carbonator cap to a length of 1/4″ ID tubing (the shorter the better).  Attach the unused end to the smaller of the two included barbs (intended for cleaning tubing) and whammo… you’ve got a line cleaner.  I didn’t use any clamps.  Things held together fine and disassemble for easy cleaning.

cln_img_9654I use a piece of 1/2″ ID silicone tubing over my faucets to return cleaning, rinsing and sanitizing solution back to the Keg and Carboy Cleaner’s basin.  Recirculating means you can run this for a long time (according to your cleaner’s recommendations).  You may also save money by using less cleaner and sanitizer.

This has the advantage of cleaning everything in your draft system.  It cleans the faucet, the shank, the quick disconnect and the tubing.  Some line cleaning pump designs I’ve seen have you removing the beer nut and placing the hand pump apparatus directly on the shank.  That’s some work disassembling and reassembling and it also skips the line and quick disconnect.

cln_img_9657Here is a photo that should hopefully give you an idea about flow rate.  If you look at my original Draft Line Cleaning Pump Build, you’ll see that I don’t believe you need a gushing fire hose-like flow rate.  The important thing, in my book, is touching all parts and constant flow.  Along those lines, if you’re looking for your draft cleaning pump to resemble a pressure washer, I’d suggest looking for something different.  I spent no time on trying to increase flow for this build.  It’s going to depend on your line length and where you place the Keg and Carboy Washer in relation to the top of your shank.

cln_img_9660A look at the 1/2″ ID tubing over my Perlick faucetcln_img_9666The Keg and Carboy Washer can be a bit unwieldy to pick up when full.  You can drain a good bit of liquid off by redirecting the discharge tubing to a bucket.

cln_img_9649I have added this switch to my Keg and Carboy Washer setup.  It allows me to easily turn the pump on and off without plugging and unplugging it.  This switch appears to be similar although not the exact same part number… [GE 52149 Handy Switch Grounded White].  You may want to add a GFCI Adapter and for safety, always read and follow manufacturer’s warnings.

1312Alternative for Pin Lock, Sankey and Ball Lock Systems.  I know of no similar Pin Lock style carbonator cap.  You get nearly the same benefit by replacing that with a 1/4″ Male Flare to 1/4″ Barb Fitting.  Remove your MFL Pin Lock QDs and attach to this fitting.  The only thing you’re missing is including the Pin Lock QDs in the cleaning process.  This would also work for Sankey and ball lock setups, you just need to have 1/4″ MFL lines.

Prior to getting a Keg and Carboy Washer myself, I consistently heard great things about it.  I can confirm the praise.  This is a great piece of equipment that saves me time.  The additional ability to clean lines with little additional expense sweetens the deal further.  The Mark II Keg and Carboy Washer is one of our Top Finds.

Mark’s Keg & Carboy Washer can be found at…

Read the current description of these to make sure they are designed to work with both gas and liquid posts.
