Ends Soon: Kegland’s Bucket Buddy Stainless Steel Fermenter – $130.48 w/Stacking Deals

kegland bucket buddy

Bucket Buddy Electric Fermenter – 35L/9.25G (110V) via MoreBeer

More Info

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

If you’ve been looking to step up from fermenting in plastic buckets or carboys, this is an excellent choice for your next fermenter. Stainless steel is a much better option than glass or plastic, as it is extremely easy to clean and virtually lasts forever. There’s also much less chance of contamination as stainless doesn’t scratch like plastic. Over time, you’ll get scratches in plastic fermenters from normal wear and tear, creating microscopic havens for bacteria. Meanwhile, glass carboys are always at risk of breaking which is something you will never have to worry about with stainless steel.

The Bucket Buddy represents a great value for a stainless fermenter in this size. Another advantage over carboys and plastic buckets is the domed base inside the fermenter which is great for yeast flocculation when fermentation is complete. The included racking arm will make it easy to transfer out every last drop of beer while leaving the yeast cake undisturbed. The entire racking arm and ball valve assembly is weldless, which means you can remove the assembly to clean and sanitize it between batches. You can even boil the assembly for added assurance that it’s been sterilized.

Also available with built-in heating element for fermenting in colder environments. You can also use a heat wrap or heat belt on the outside of this unit. To help maintain a steady temperature, the Bucket Buddy pairs well with either the BrewZilla Neoprene Jacket or the FermZilla Insulating Jacket. For cooling, you can place the fermenter in a dedicated refrigerator or drill into the lid to install a Temp Twister Cooling Coil. A temperature controller probe can then be inserted into the thermowell to control your heating and cooling sources.

This unit comes standard with silicone tubing to transfer from the ball valve to your bottles or cans, as well as a stopper and airlock for the domed lid.

Specifications:

304 stainless steel construction
9 gallon total capacity
Digital thermometer (Temp reads in °C)
Weldless thermowell
Stainless steel outlet valve with rotating racking arm
Stopper & airlock included
External Dimensions: 28″ H x 15″ W (including handles)
Internal Dimensions: 22″ H x 11.75″ W
KegLand Part Number: KL15103

Stainless Carbonation & Cleaning Cap – on sale for $7.99 at William’s Brewing + Freebie Offer

Stainless Carbonation & Cleaning Cap

Stainless Carbonation and Cleaning Cap from William’s Brewing

More Info

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

An all stainless 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.

You can also fill this with sanitizing or line cleaning solution, put some ¼” tubing on the barb, and use it with a 2 liter PET bottle as a line cleaner for kegs and draft systems. To do this, fill the PET bottle 1/3 full of cleaning solution, screw on the cap with tubing affixed, and inject with C02 to pressurize. Then use a beer ball lock fitting with a ¼” hose attached and use this to rinse your beer faucet nozzle first, or use a piece of hose with two beer ball lock barbed fittings, and make a jumper to clean the beer side of kegs.

This has a integral hybrid ball lock post that will accept beer and gas lines. A tradeoff of this design means when you use a grey ball lock gas fitting to charge your bottle, the grey fitting will leak if you leave it on. This is designed to quickly charge with gas and then remove the gas ball lock fitting, it is not designed to have a gas line attached for any length of time. This works for its intended use, which is a quick charge with gas and then having the ability to attach a beer dispensing line with a black beer ball lock fitting. You can affix 1/4″ interior diameter beer tubing to the interior gas post which will serve as a beer pick up dip tube during dispensing if desired (order a foot or so of our item S31, 1/4″ beer tubing if you want to do this).

You can also purchase our P53 Gas Post for Corny Keg if you want a gas post on this fitting that will not leak gas when attached for a longer period, although this eliminates the ability to also attach a black beer side ball lock fitting.

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


Applications:

  • 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.
  • Draft Line Cleaning Projects:  I have developed three draft line cleaning projects using similar SS Caps – Build A Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump | Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner Draft Line Cleaning Pump ConversionBuilding a Simple Ball Lock Draft Line Flushing Setup

Bulk Grain Deal

Grain by the lb can generally be had for a good price.  The same is true for sacks of grain.  The real issue comes when you add on shipping.  50 or 55 lbs of grain is… heavy.  Shipping charges can add up.

If you choose 5 lb bags of select malts, you’ll qualify for MoreBeer’s “Malt 6 Pack” deal. That gets you a volume discount when you buy 6 or more 5 lb sacks of the same grain.

  • MoreBeer has 5 lbs of Briess 2 Row for $8.29.
  • The price drops to $7.47 when you buy 6 or more.
  • Buy 21 x 5 lb bags of Briess 2 Row, apply coupon code SAVEMORE. Your total will be $136.87 or $1.37 per lb.
  • And… shipping will be free to many US addresses.

Yes, free shipping works… FREE Shipping DOES Work. I periodically get questions/concerns when I post this workaround, please read… Although bags of grain do not ship under MoreBeer’s free shipping program… buying smaller quantities that DO qualify for free shipping is a loophole of sorts.
