New from Blichmann Engineering: RipTide Brewing Pump!

About the new Blichmann Engineering RipTide Brewing Pump

“The RipTide Brew Pump from Blichmann Engineering is here! This is the first pump designed and engineered specifically for home brewers. The minds at Blichmann designed this pump to solve many of the problems that have plagued home brewers for years, and the results speak for themselves. The Riptide has a tri-clamp stainless steel head with integral linear flow valve and integral air vent valve that can be set to any angle, allows for perfect flow control and bleeding of air from the pump. No need to spend extra money and design your own solution, the RipTide has these built-in! The totally enclosed motor is much more resistant to water and splashing than comparable pumps, and runs whisper-quiet! An included stable base keeps the pump from tipping over when in use and acts as a cord wrap for easy storage. It includes a 10 ft power cable and even has a power switch for turning the pump on and off at your convenience! The RipTide simply makes more sense than other pumps for all your home brewing needs!”

Product Features

  • Curved impeller blade with rare earth metal magnet can pump 7 gallons per minute (GPM) and delivers a 21 ft lift!
  • Tri-clamp head disassembles in seconds for easy cleaning and can be oriented to any angle!
  • Motor is completely enclosed, splash-proof and whisper-quiet!
  • Integrated linear flow valve and air vent valve allow for easy priming, precise flow control and bleeding of air from the pump! No need for “bleeder valve” setup.
  • Large stable base included, allows for stable operation and a cord  wrap for the 10 ft. cord during storage.
  • Power switch on pump allows the pump to be turned on and off with ease!
  • Super-duper quiet operation!

Great Fermentations is located in the fine state of Indiana.  As such they seem to have a mind meld going on with Blichmann Engineering.  They probably all hang out at basketball games and such.  I imagine some level of frolicking is involved.  Anyway GF is quick on the uptake with regards to Blichmann Gear.  For example… check out their extensive line of replacement parts.

Great Fermentations has the RipTide Brew Pump available for purchase at $199.99. They’re on of the first to have it available.  Since this is under minimum pricing, you’re unlikely to find it for less elsewhere.  Check GF for up to the minute price, description and availability.

Mark II Homebrew Pump from William’s Brewing

The MKII Pump from Keg King is a magnetic drive high temperature pump capable of pumping  hot wort at temperatures of up to 248° F.  It can pump up to 5 gallons per minute, making it perfect for 5 to 20 gallon systems.  The pump head and impeller are constructed of food grade polysulphone.

The inlet is in the center.

The magnetic drive ensures no lubricated bearings are in contact with the liquid at all, so you can be sure there is no chance of any contamination of the liquid being pumped. The pump features a 67” power cord, and a mounting plate for permanent mounting.  The pump is 7¾” in overall length, and 3¼” wide including the mounting plate. The polysulfone head can be mounted at any angle on the pump to fit your application.

The Bouncer Inline Beer Filter – $24.99 + Free Shipping via eBay

Bouncer Inline Beer Filter for Home Brewing – Removes Sediment Without Aeration
Keep the Dregs Out.  You can also use the Bouncer as a mini-Randall.

More About the Bouncer

From the item description…

Brew better-tasting and clearer beer, in less time, without waste or additives with BOUNCER inline beer filters. Finally, an affordable and reusable filtration solution for home brewers! Use the Bouncer inline between your fermenter and keg, or between your boil kettle and your fermenter. Removes trub, hops, and particulates without aerating. It’s easy to add to your setup, easy to clean, and easy to use. You’ll get more out of each batch, since you don’t have to avoid the trub layer as carefully. Pays for itself in a few batches!

There are three basic ways to use the Bouncer inline filter:

  • Out of the brew kettle
  • Out of the fermenter
  • Out of your serving tap

To use your bouncer out of the brew kettle, simply connect it to your brew kettle valve with standard tubing, or cut your siphon tube line near the top, and insert the barbs into the tube. Pay attention to the arrow that indicates the flow direction. Make sure you have disassembled the bouncer and dipped it in sanitizer just before you use it. Then open your valve, or pump your siphon. If the flow decreases too much, you can stop the flow, remove the bowl and filter, rinse, sanitize, reinstall, and keep going. On a heavily hopped IPA, or a 10 gallon batch, you might find you need to clear it several times.

To use your Bouncer out of your fermenter, cut your siphon tube near the top, and push the barb ends into the tubes, paying attention to the flow direction arrow. The barb ends fit a standard siphon. Make sure to sanitize right before you use it. You might find a bubble develop in the filter bowl – this isn’t air, it’s carbon dioxide from your beer. Just lift the barbed ends so they are level and the bubble should clear down the tube.

Finally, you can hack a mini Randall out of your bouncer. Try orange peels for a Blonde Ale, cracked coffee beans in a Porter, or cloves in your Pumpkin Ale.

  • Improves the taste and clarity of your beer by filtering trub, yeast, hops, and proteins
  • Built to last, use it over and over, custom molded from high quality thermoplastic and T304 stainless steel in the USA, use up to 150F
  • Saves time and beer, pays for itself in a few batches, get more beer out of each batch, easier and quicker than cold crashing or additives
  • Easy to use and clean, gravity fed using your racking siphon, no need to pressurize or pump, fewer parts to clean and sanitize
  • Doubles as a mini-Randall, simply attach to a growler filler and add fresh flavors into the glass, try citrus peels for a lighter beer, or cracked coffee for a stout

The regular model has a 3/8″ barb, so it directly fits the smaller (3/8″) racking cane hose size.
