10 Gallon Factory Second Ball Locks… In Stock

10 and 15 gallon ball lock kegs can be tough to find.  Sometimes extremely tough.

These size kegs are handy if you’re a larger batch brewer wanting to keg larger batches and… they work great as fermenters.  I’ve used a 10 gallon ball lock for years and years as a fermenter.  It allows me to ferment under pressure [See: Spunding Valve Build], do fermenter to serving keg transfers under pressure, it’s food grade stainless steel and it’s easy to move around.  I’ve been a big advocate of this application of these hard to find kegs.

Keggle brewing has sourced factory second and brand new 10 and 15 gallon kegs.  Availability of these can be touch and go, especially for the factory seconds.  The factory seconds save you quite a bit of money.  Those are new kegs that have some blemishes, but are all in good usable condition and hold pressure.  Check Keggle Brewing for current selection, pricing and availability.

As of this posting, Keggle Brewing has a batch of factory second 10 gallon ball locks in stock for $225.  That’s a $100 savings compared to the standard offering.  As noted availability can be volatile, check Keggle Brewing for current availability and pricing.

This is the most affordable all stainless steel fermenter, still, kettle combo available on the market.

The primary function of the unit is as a fermenter, but for those who are tight on space or wanting an economic option it can also double as a still or kettle. Single vessel boiling and fermenting is becoming more and more popular, one reason is no sanitizing needed and less risk of contamination!

The lid comes with a removable/replaceable gasket. They can be replaced every few years to ensure sanitary conditions and ensure the vessel will last you a lifetime.

  • The most affordable stainless steel fermenter
  • Pressed gallon markings
  • Easy to clean
  • Perfect for 10-12 gallon batches with plenty of head space
  • Comes with a #10 rubber stopper and airlock.

Kegmenter Fermentation Keg – 13.2 gallon via MoreBeer

More Info

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

Want an easy to use stainless vessel that ferments and carbonates? This 50L/13.2 Gallon keg has been modified to allow you to do both! The top is fitted with a large 4 inch tri clamp opening with two ball lock posts and a pressure relief valve. You can use this vessel to ferment, carbonate, serve, or push the beer through a filter. The posts are recessed which allows you to stack these kegs up to 4 high. A 4″ T.C. end cap with pre drilled hole is also available (H691), which can be paired with a #3 stopper and airlock.

Features

  • Rated up to 3.5 BAR (50 psi)
  • Never use the Kegmenter without the pressure relief valve in place
  • 4 in Triclamp lid
  • Ball lock posts built into lid
  • Pressure Relief Valve
  • Stainless steel 1.8 mm thick

Use

  • As a stainless steel fermenter that is easy to clean
  • Great choice for 10 gallon ferments
  • Easy to pressurize the kegmenter after fermentation to push through a filter and into another keg
  • Fermenting under pressure, allowing co2 to exit via the relief valve, reduces esters and fusel alcohol production allowing you to ferment at warmer temperatures
  • Distillation – with the addition of a T.C. reducer and condenser (H701 / DS120 / DS130)
  • As a cellar keg for topping up barrels
  • For holding and dispensing chemicals for carpet cleaning and other industrial applications

Note from HBF: Depending on your location, you may need to obtain a license to distill alcohol

Black MAXXX Stir Plate – 5 Gallon Capability

Black MAXX International Stir Plate

Black MAXX International Stir Plate


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

  • Graduated aluminum dial face and 2 speed ranges. Once you know where your stir plate needs to run you can “set and forget”.
  • PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) technology is a better solution than a regulator based controller – PWM allows better motor speed control with less wasted energy.
  • Low Profile, Compact Design – Measuring just over 2.5″ high and just over 8″ width and 7″ depth, our low profile case has a wide firm footing. This plus the 4 skid resistant rubber feet makes knocking your stir plate off the counter much less likely than other “cheap stir plates”.
  • Includes international Energy Efficiency Level VI Power Supply with adapters to support power mains connections in the UK, US, AU/NZ, EU and CCC
  • Includes Stir Bar – One 2″ long stir bar plus a flat “keeper magnet” you use to hold the stir bar in your flask while pouring out your starter.

Ships with our new international power supply to cover the International Market, including UK, EU, AU and NZ. The only low cost stir plate designed to spin a 5 gallon batch. Over 4 months of design and research went into this model. Our goal was to design a stir plate that would easily spin a 5 gallon high gravity beer, MEAD or starter and still cost under $200. We went though many false starts and literally dozens of motor & magnet combinations before we got this one right. The magnets are massive – so strong that if we accidentally stick two together we can’t pull or slide them apart. But they have to be strong enough for the stir bar to self center in the bottom of your 5 gallon carboy. The included stir bar measures a full 2″ long. Everything in this stir plate is geared towards LARGE.
