Mark II Pump with Steel Head

Let’s face it, pumps aren’t the most exciting piece of homebrew equipment you own. With the exception of the RipTide pump, they don’t have “features” you can impress your friends with. There are a few basic requirements, and once you get those met, you’re just looking for the lowest price. For me, the basic requirements are: 1) Magnetic drive, 2) Ideally a stainless steel head, 3) Temperature & splash protection, and lastly 4) Maximum head.

The MkII’s Magnetic Impeller

Several vendors offer what’s called a “Mark II Pump”. So you need to dig deeper than just the name when comparing pump offerings from different shops. One requirement, which is pretty much standard across beer brewing pumps, is what’s called a magnetic drive. Magnetic drive means you don’t have to worry about grease from shaft bearings getting into your wort. The other advantage is that you can close a valve- partially or completely- on the output side of your pump to reduce flow, and it causes no stress to your pump. Magnetic drive is pretty much standard in beer brewing pumps, but I bring it up because shopping on Amazon or eBay you might get drawn into something that isn’t.

About Pump Features and Specs – What does Pump Head Mean?

Pump heads come in either stainless steel or some kind of plastic/resin. Some resins have a better temperature durability, so after many hours of operation they are less likely to break down and lose pressure/flow capability. Stainless steel doesn’t have this issue, but it also has more durable threads. Most wort pumps come with 1/2″ Male NPT at inlet and outlet so you can screw on hose attachments or ball valves. I’ve had bad luck with stripping threads off a polysulphone pump head even with the most careful attention paid to not cross-threading it.

The next key differentiator between pumps is temperature capability. Some are designed to handle cooler liquids and are maybe only rated to something like 80F or 180F. This simply isn’t good enough for brewing, you want something that can handle boiling wort temperatures (212F or hotter).

7.1 Gallon FermZilla Conical Fermenter + 5 lbs PBW – Save $30

7.1 Gallon FermZilla Conical Fermenter

7.1 Gallon FermZilla Conical Fermenter via Adventures in Homebrewing

More Info

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

FermZilla Conical Fermenter – 7.1 gal. / 27 L

The new and improved FermZilla, a 27 liter conical fermenter brought to you by the critical key minds and engineers behind the original Fermentasaurus Gen 1. Although the original Fermentasaurus was revolutionary at the time of its conception, there are always areas to improve upon. This is partly due to the strong community of Fermentasaurus users who have helped push for an improved conical unitank.

New and Improved:

  1. Larger Dump Valve – 3″ butterfly dump valve is more resistant to clogging from large amounts of trub
  2. Larger Opening – 4.75″ top port opening allows for easier cleaning
  3. Less Headspace – more appropriately sized for 5-gallon batches. Purging the headspace of oxygen is easier and more effective.

What’s Included:

  • FermZilla 27L Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve
  • Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
  • Top Lid with PRV (35 psi)
  • 1000 ml Collection Container & Lid

New Replacement Ball Lock and Pin Lock Keg Lids – $14.50 + free prime ship

Lid for Cornelius or Firestone Kegs, NEW!

New replacement lid for standard ball lock and pin lock kegs.  Includes new PRV (pressure relief valve) and o-ring.

More Info

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

  • Fits all Oval lid ball lock or pin lock kegs
  • Complete with a new manual pressure release Valve
  • O-ring included

This is a new replacement Lid for ball lock or pin lock kegs . Fits all Oval Lid kegs. Comes complete with a new pressure release Valve and a new Lid O-Ring. Replaces old or broken lids. Also great to replace pin lock lids that do not have integrated manual pressure Relief valves.


 

In most cases, Pin lock and ball lock cornelius style keg lids are interchangeable from a size perspective.  That means you can, generally speaking, put a pepsi/ball lock style (manual prv) lid on a coke/pin lock style (no manual prv) keg.  In my book, that’s a solid upgrade.  See: What’s the Difference Between Ball Lock Kegs and Pin Lock Kegs? – Related: Keg Repair Part #s

Limited Quantities: 10 and 15 Gallon Torpedo Ball Lock Kegs! + Hands on Review

 New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

From MoreBeer:

Look out below! The Torpedo Keg Depth Charge series just dropped and they’re set to send blast waves through the homebrew world. Large-scale homebrewers will appreciate the ability to fit their entire batch into a single 10 or 15 gallon ball lock keg, and you can expect the same great features that have made Torpedo Kegs such a hit. Laser welded construction for superior quality, rolled stainless steel handles that will last a lifetime, and stackable design that won’t interfere with your fittings.

To learn more and order your Torpedo Kegs, click here


Thoughts from HBF: This is a great entry into the homebrewing keg market.  Larger 10 and 15 gallon kegs are tough to find and even more difficult to find at a reasonable price.  The current prices, $219 for a 15 gallon keg and $199 for a 10 gallon keg are.. bargains, especially considering that they ship for free to many US addresses.  Beyond kegging larger homebrew batches these can be used as fermenters.

Update:  MoreBeer fully expects to sell out of this first batch relatively soon.  More will be on the way, but, it will take some time.  I’ve you’ve been thinking about picking one or more of these up, my suggestion is to do it sooner rather than later.

Hands on Review!  Check our my in depth Hands on Review of the 10 gallon version of this keg.
