DuoTight Compatible Plastic Carbonation & Line Cleaning Ball Lock Caps – $5.99 + a Freebie w/Qualifying Orders

Molded Carbonation & Cleaning Cap

Molded Carbonation & Cleaning Cap via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

This molded male ball lock valve coupling cap that fits a 2 liter or smaller plastic soda bottle with a 28mm screw cap lid. This allows the 2 liter bottle to be charged with C02 from any female ball lock gas fitting (like our item D32 or D03 Gas Connector), carbonating the cold beverage in the bottle. Great for serving draft beer away from the keg. Also fits the Brewzilla in and out ports on the lid, and the Brewzilla Collection Jar ports for pressurizing the Brewzilla fermenter. The hose barb on the bottom is also compatible with our DuoTight fitting Z84 and C55 which lets you easily attach a ball lock fitting to an EvaBarrier 8mm or 9mm outer diameter line.

This has a hybrid ball lock post that will accept beer and gas lines.

IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNING: FOR USE ON PLASTIC SODA BOTTLES AND BREWZILLA ONLY, NEVER USE ON GLASS BOTTLES


 

What are these used for?

  • PET Bottles as Growlers: These are generally intended to convert 1L and 2L bottles to growlers.  Fill up a 1L or 2L PET bottle with your favorite homebrew.  Put one of these on (purge the headspace by squeezing if you want to) and then pressurize for transport.  This should help to reduce oxygen pickup and maintain carbonation levels.
  • Fine tune or rapidly carbonate beer: You can also use this cap to rapidly carbonate beer.  Same process as for transport, just set your regulator to the proper pressure and shake or agitate the PET bottle to help introduce CO2.  Or hook it up to CO2 and let it sit in you kegerator.
  • Flushing Carboys, Fermenters and Kegs – As a piece of tubing the barb, hook to your CO2 line and use this to flush receiving vessels wiht CO2 to reduce O2 pickup.
  • Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed two draft line cleaning projects using similar (but different) caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump Conversion

A great deal!

  • As of this posting, William’s Brewing has these for just $5.99.
  • You can use these with DuoTight Fittings if you’d like.  DuoTights are awesome!  Hands on Review
  • Get a Freebie:  Place an order with a subtotal of $50.00 or more and enter web coupon code BEERDANA at checkout and you’ll get a free Beerdana.  No need to add the Beerdana to your cart.  Just put together an order of $50 or more and apply coupon code BEERDANA at checkout and it will be automatically added to your cart.

New Spike Solo Single Vessel eBIAB Systems Available

Spike’s Solo Systems have been wildly popular.  Check out this statement from Spike after the two rounds of pre-sales…


From Spike Brewing:

TWO RECORD-SETTING PRESALES
Based on all of the excitement we saw in the months leading up to the presale of the Spike Solo and Steam Condenser Lid, we anticipated high demand for these new products, but we were completely blown away by the overwhelming response! Both products sold out within 2 hours during their respective presales. Some of the variants sold out within minutes, which is a record for Spike. We will be sending updates on expected shipping dates for presale orders and will be making an announcement about when these will be officially available for purchase, so stay tuned.


As of this posting, these are available to purchase!  In previous posts I told you I’d keep a close eye on these and I have.  As such there has been no official announcement.  So, I have no idea if this is just another limited quantity presale or how many may be available.

SPIKE SOLO SINGLE VESSEL BREWING SYSTEM

Also: Spike Brewing’s Bargain Cave – a rare chance to get a deal on Spike gear.  Quantities and selection can be very limited.  If you see something you like, I suggest purchasing it quickly.

Back in Stock at MoreBeer! – BlowTie Diaphragm Spunding Valve WITH Gauge

BlowTie Diaphragm Spunding Valve with Gauge FE962

BlowTie Diaphragm Spunding Valve with Gauge from MoreBeer

More Info

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

The Blow Tie Spunding Valve is used to release excess pressure on a pressurized fermenter or from a receiving keg during pressure transfers. This diaphragm spunding valve is much more accurate than the spring and poppet style, and works much better at lower pressures.

The BlowTie 2 features an integrated pressure gauge so you can quickly and easily dial in your pressure setting. The gauge is removable and can be swapped out with a gauge of a different pressure range.

Pressure Fermentation

Pressure fermentation is becoming more and more popular at the homebrew level, but in order to do it safely and accurately you need a way to release excess pressure. You’ll pressurize your vessel to your desired psi, but once fermentation begins and those hungry, active yeast start creating CO2, the pressure inside the vessel will increase. Attach a spunding valve and set it to your desired pressure, and it will blow off when the pressure gets too high and close up again when it’s back to your desired psi.

Pressure Transfers
Even if you don’t have a pressurizable fermenter, you may have done pressure transfers from keg to keg during filtering or after fining. During pressure transfers, it’s a good idea to have a bit of head pressure in the receiving keg, especially if you’re transferring beer that is already carbonated. Having a spunding valve in place will allow you to consistently control the head pressure and give you more consistent results, without losing carbonation in the process.

Diaphragm vs. Poppet
With the poppet style spunding valve, a spring pushes against a poppet to keep the valve closed. When the poppet lifts up to open, the surface area the gas pushes against becomes larger, and the spring has to work harder to push the poppet down and reseal the valve. This can lead to more gas being released than intended, and the remaining pressure in your vessel may be at a lower psi than your spunding valve’s set psi.

Instead of a poppet, the spring inside the BlowTie pushes against a diaphragm, which has an immensely larger surface area. This means the surface area that the gas pushes against while the diaphragm is closed is significantly closer to the surface area it pushes against when the diaphragm is open. This leads to higher accuracy, and the remaining pressure after excess gas is released will be much closer to your set blow off pressure.

Set Up
The BlowTie spunding valve comes with 8 mm Duotight fittings on the inlet and outlet, and we recommend using it with EVABarrier 8 mm OD tubing (D1717 or D1718). You’ll also need the flare Duotight fitting (DUO106) in order to attach it to a ball lock or pin lock disconnect. Dialing in your desired pressure is even easier with the BlowTie 2, thanks to the integrated pressure gauge. Simply start with the adjustment knob fully closed, then slowly open it until the gauge reading matches your desired pressure setting.

Specifications:

  • Made from food grade acetal
  • Stainless screws
  • Easily disassembles for cleaning
  • 8mm (5/16″) Duotight fittings at both ends
  • Interchangeable pressure gauge
  • Gauge reads from 0-23 psi

WARNING: Do not exceed gauge pressure. Exceeding the pressure range will damage the gauge.


 

  • DuoTight Fittings and Accessories along with EVABarrier Tubing are… awesome.  In my opinion, the system is a game-changer for kegerator owners and builders.
  • The BlowTie is part of that lineup.
  • This is v2.  The big innovation is that v2 includes and integrated gauge.  Check out my Hands on Review of the v1 BlowTie Valve
  • This has been sold out for quite a  while.  As of this posting, it’s available again.  Check the product page to see if you can still order this.
  • Get Free Shipping: This ships for free with a qualify order as part of MoreBeer’s Free Shipping Program.  Under that promo most orders over $59 ship for free.
  • Easy Filler Item….  If you’re looking for a filler item to help you qualify for free shipping, consider grabbing some PBW

Meet Me in Munich: A Beer Lover’s Guide to Oktoberfest Kindle Edition – FREE

Vienna Lager Kindle Edition

Vienna Lager Kindle Edition by Andreas Krennmair

More Info

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

Vienna Lager is an outstanding example of a revolution in beer brewing that started in the 1830s. When Austrian brewer Anton Dreher travelled to England and Scotland, he learned about British brewing technology that was mostly unknown in Continental Europe at the time.

With this knowledge and a lager yeast sample from his friend and travel companion Gabriel Sedlmayr from Munich, he founded a brewing empire that started a revolution of pale, cold-fermented beer across Europe and the world. Thanks to Vienna Lager’s popularity in the United States during the 19th and 20th century, it survived even when it had fallen out of fashion in its country of origin and became a classic style that is still brewed and reinterpreted by brewers around the world.

The book not only tells the story of this beer type in great detail and dispels many myths around it, it also explains – based on historic sources – which ingredients were used to brew the beer, what the brewing process was like, and what the beer looked and tasted like. The book also comes with a number of recipes that explain how home-brewers can recreate both authentic, historic examples and modern versions of Vienna Lager at home.


 

Kindle Edition books can be viewed on your Kindle Device or on free reader applications available for your iPhone, Android or Windows smart phone – and  for your web browser via Amazon’s Cloud Reader.  This dynamic link will take you to the appropriate reader for your current platform.
