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.

On Kickstarter… Made in America Eagle Cap-Off Mechanical Bottle Opener

5d390109d9007b1a82f05d2f6ca2c4a8_original

I became aware of the Eagle Cap-Off when I was involved a slew of Twitter mentions [HBF on Twitter] on the subject.

The Eagle Cap-Off Kickstarter aims to raise funds to revive an American made mechanical bottle cap remover that was manufactured nearly 70 years ago.

The re-launch of Eagle Lock Company’s Cap-Off will feature the same high quality construction and materials and it will continue to be made in America.

When you look at the current rewards, you’ll realize that this is not a budget opener.

There are a couple things that I have transitioned into being a collector of.  If you’ve read HBF for long, you’ll probably nod your head when I say… I collect growlers… [Some (not all) examples…  Lifeline 7508Stanley Classic Growler, Hammertone Green, also in Hammertone Navy (I bought both so I’d have both!), Klean Kanteen 64-Ounce Insulated Growler With Swinglok Cap and several from Portland Growler Co]

I also collect bottle openers.  I’m hoping this KS goes so that I can… collect the Eagle Lock Co Cap-Off.  I’m excited about… the quality construction, it’s retro styling and the fact that it’s made in the good ole’ USA.

Update 1:  They reached their goal!

Update 2:  Eagle Cap-Off Mechanical Openers are now available to purchase.  HBF Readers Get 10% Off

Mashed In Custom Ingredient Tap Handles!

taphandles_1024x1024

Mashed In makes beautiful custom beer tap handles from actual brewing ingredients including Hops, a variety of grains and more.

I have four of these tap handles. cln_img_0248 As you can imagine, I have a lot of beer and homebrewing gear.  My wife is very supportive of my homebrewing hobby and loves good beer – mostly hop heavy IPAs.  She even occasionally brews with me, but for the most part I get a “meh” on a scale of meh to… meh when I show her new gear.  These tap handles are a notable exception.  She thinks these are awesome and I agree.  You can see a picture of these in my recent post on brewing Big Little Guy IPA.

Look for a full review in the future, but, for now, these tap handles are marked down $5 to $34.99 (CAD).  Promo code HBFSAVE10 saves you another 10% on individual handles (does not apply to 4 handle set).  Shipping is free… worldwide.  Additional gear including Cider and Cold Brew Coffee handles as well as custom coasters are also available.
