I use my brewing pump for vorlaufing/recirculating, transferring from my mash tun to brew kettle, chilling with a recirculating wort chiller and transferring to my fermenter.

As of this posting this is selling for $144.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price, description and availability.

Stacks With: For a limited time, Adventures in Homebrewing is discounting select orders of $100 or more by $16.  Save $16 at AIH!  No coupon code is required, the discounted amount should be automatically be reflected in your cart before checkout.  Nearly everything qualifies including existing sale items, although their are a few exceptions.  See terms and conditions.  That makes this pump $128.99.

For comparison, MoreBeer has this pump (or what appears to be a very similar pump) for $199.99.  The price on that offering has recently gone up, something I’m concerned that may be a sign of things to come with regards to homebrew pump pricing.

Build a Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump!

recirculating draft line cleaner

The directions on most line cleaners call for recirculating the cleaner for some period of time.  Most affordable cleaning setups that are out there include a hand pump.  Operating one of those for 15 to 30 minutes, for each faucet, doesn’t sound fun.

To really clean your draft lines, you need to keep solution flowing for a length of time, not just fill and wait.  Initially I tried to clean my system by pushing line cleaner out of a keg.  This was a waste of CO2.  I also found it tough to keep solution running slowly enough to get the required amount of contact time.  It’s easy to quickly push a cleaning or sanitizing solution through your system under CO2 pressure, but I found it to be a pain to try to do so slowly.  This also requires quite a bit of cleaning solution versus a recirculating pump.

I decided to put together a recirculating draft line cleaning pump setup.
