Hand Made Oak Tap Handles + Custom Engraving Options

Tapered beer tap handle oak wood. Blank, can be custom engraved with your personalized text. Great for tap rooms, bars, breweries and home kegerators

Hand Made Oak Tap Handles via Amazon Handmade.  Can be custom engraved on one or two sides.

Get handles with the name of your home-brewery or the name of one of your homebrews that you regularly have on tap.  Depending on your setup (whether or not you can see the tap handle from both sides) it may make sense to get your brewery name on one side of your tap handles and beer names on the other.  That way you can spin these around either way, depending if you have one of your regular beers on tap.

Classic tapered shape beer tap handle, 10” tall blank, can be personalized with custom engraved text. Handmade natural oak wood, unfinished. Made in Oakville, MD, USA.

12″ Stainless False Bottom w/Silicone Lip & Pickup Tube – $39.99

12″ Stainless Steel False Bottom from William’s Brewing.  Use in the bottom of your compatible 10 gallon cooler for use as a mash tun.  This model has a couple of unique features.  First, there is a silicone lip around the outside to protect your cooler and prevent scratches.  Second this has a 3/4″ wort pickup tube in the bottom to help reduce wort loss due to dead space below the false bottom.

More Info

from William’s Brewing… This 12″ concave type 304 stainless false bottom features a 3/8″ stainless hose barb coming out the top for attachment to your cooler or pot valve (via high temperature thermoplastic tubing).

Now improved, with a silicone lip that both prevents cooler scratches and firmly plants the false bottom on the floor of the cooler, preventing shifting. It also includes a ¾” wort pickup tube on its underside, which is positioned ¼” from the cooler bottom when in place, high enough to prevent clogging, but low enough to draw wort from a very low point in the cooler, maximizing efficiency.

This 12″ model is custom designed to fit Igloo and Rubbermaid 10 gallon coolers. Order a foot of our J50 3/8″ thermoplastic tubing to fit this hose barb. You can attach this hose to the inside of a R45 Brewer’s Edge KettleValve with an S37 3/8″ stainless nipple.

 

As of this posting, this is selling for $39.99.  Check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability
