love2brew Blends and Equipment on Sale for HBF Readers!

exclusivesale072016

love2brew recently introduced their new Blends series of recipe kits.  The basic idea behind these is… you get two seperate 2.5 gallon beer kits that are designed to be brewed separately.  That gets you two different beers… awesome.  The recipes are also designed to compliment each other should you decide to try your hand at blending them… double awesome.  Blending gives you three different beers.  Both extract and all grain blends are available.

I think this is a brilliant idea.  2.5 gallon batches are super easy to brew [See: Small Batch, All Grain Stove Top Brewing],  These kits give you flexibility and variety.

From love2brew: “Each Blends Beer Recipe Kit contains two 2.5 Gallon Recipes. Each recipe has fresh ingredients individually packaged with complete instructions. Each Blends™ Beer Recipe Kit also contains the following: Our Blends™ Strategy Guide; a detailed guide explaining the objectives and best practices of blending your own beers. A specific blending guide for the Blends™ Beer Recipe Kit you chose that details our tasting observations for each blend, exact blending ratios for our recommended blend suggestions, and notes on how to best enjoy your blended brews. In addition we include our Love2brew Blends™ Tasting Evaluation Sheet so you can experiment with our own ratios and notes, crafting your own perfect concoction! The best part about Love2brew Blends™ is that there is no wrong way to enjoy! Your only limitation is your own creativity!”

New 2.5 Gallon Ball Locks… $75

AIH New Double Rubber Handle 2.5 Gal Keg

Brand new, double rubber handle 2.5 gallon ball lock kegs.  ISO 9001 and NSF Certified via Adventures in Homebrewing.  14.5″ Tall x 8.25″ in diameter.

Double rubber handles are generally preferable to single metal strap handles – you have… two handles vs one that means they are easier to grab and move and they allow the keg to be easily inverted for draining and drying.

2.5 Gallon kegs fit nicely in a 5 gallon bucket full of ice.  They are also nice for splitting 5 gallon batches, serving homebrew on the go and small space kegging.

I have both the 2.5 gallon and the  5 gallon version of this keg (See: Review – AIH 5 Gallon Ball Lock) and like both of them very much.

5/23/16: The 5 gallon version of this keg had also been on sale for $75.  The price on those has gone up to $89.  These 2.5 gallon kegs are still at just $75.  Not sure if a price change is on the horizon, but as of this posting, this is a great deal on a great keg.
