I’ve mentioned this keg 6 times since 2011.  Today’s Deal of the Day Price of $94.99 with free shipping is the second lowest price I’ve seen.  You have to go back to the 12 Deals of Christmas in 2013 to get a slightly better price of $93.49.

Corny Keg – NEW (2.5 gallon) KEG419 – $94.99 + Free Shipping

Description: ” High quality Italian made ball-lock style kegs with rubber top and bottom. We love the rubber tops because they provide two handles and are easier to stack. These are brand new premium made kegs that will cost more than similar kegs made in China. The difference between Italian made and Chinese made kegs is in the craftsmanship. With these Italian kegs welds are performed by laser under inert gas which means there are no nooks or crannies that will house bacteria. For three years we have been getting sample kegs from China and have rejected them all. While the quality of kegs from China is increasing it is not there yet.

Quality is important because your beer may sit in these kegs for months. If bacteria gets into a bad weld they are going to very hard to kill. Sanitizer may not be able to get into small pockets to kill the bacteria.

Kegs are 15″ tall, x 8.25″ diameter and weigh 7.5 pounds. This makes them approximately half the size of a 5 gallon keg. They fit pretty much everywhere from coolers to backpacks. These type of kegs are often referred to as corny or Cornelius kegs (the brand who made them originally) or soda kegs because in the past these style of kegs were made to hold soda syrup.” (keep reading)

Picobrew Zymatic – Fully Automated Beer Brewing Appliance

Picobrew Zymatic

From MoreBeer: The PicoBrew Zymatic® is a fully automated all-grain brewing appliance, built to brew 2.5 gallons at a time. There are numerous reasons why we love this new all-grain brewery, but we recognize it may not be for everyone. That being said, the Zymatic® is perfect if:

– You’re wanting extreme repeatability. The Zymatic® can remember individual batches, and if you want to replicate one, its as easy as loading up the same ingredients and selecting that brew.
– You want to brew all-grain, but are restricted on space. This unit is extremely compact, making space almost a non-factor when compared to traditional all-grain setups.
– Time is an issue. Set up and clean up are much quicker and easier, and since the Zymatic® is completely automated, you don’t need to be there to monitor temperatures, open valves, turn on burners, etc.

The Zymatic® also runs on 120 v electricty, and plugs into any standard 3-prong outlet. It is WiFi capable, so you can load your recipes without being right next to your computer. If you have to leave during the brew, you can monitor the whole process from your smartphone!
