Brand New ITALIAN MADE Keg Lids… $14.20 with stacking deals + flat rate eligible

replacement homebrew keg lids

New Italian Lid for Cornelius or Firestone Kegs via Keg Connection

More Info

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

Cornelius Style Lid manufactured in Italy by AEB

This is the highest quality lid on the market. It features a metal pressure relief valve and is constructed of Stainless Steel. Most lids are now made in China, but this one is made in Italy! This lid will fit all standard Ball Lock and Pin Lock kegs (except “Racetrack Style Kegs which have straight sides vs oval holes for the lids)


 

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?

  • These are on sale for just $14.95
  • HBF Reader Coupon!  As of this posting, coupon code HBF5OFF takes an additional 5% off

Homend Stainless Steel 304 Rotary Spray Ball NPT Female CIP Tank Cleaning Ball 360° Spray Pattern (1/2″ NPT Threaded)

More Info

CIP (Clean in Place) Spray Balls are generally used for vessels that are too large to move.  Since they’re too large to move you… clean them in place.  If you have a larger setup, you could incorporate these into your system or routine to help clean your vessels more easily.

Other possible homebrew applications: A CIP ball could be as part of a recirculating or sparging setup or as part of a keg or carboy cleaning setup.  I use this rotary spray ball with my Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner.  See: Mark II Keg and Carboy Washer Mod – SS CIP Spray Ball. Make sure the components you use are compatible and rated for your intended application.  Contact manufacturer with questions about suitability or a specific application.  Always read and follow manufacturer directions.

My home-brewery or most of my home-brewery is in my basement.  It’s in a good sized utility room that was drastically underlit for home brewing purposes.  Same story for our last house.  Basement brew area, low light.

I’ve added several similar workshop lights [different model, specs and manufacturer – here] to the area and it’s made a huge difference.  Instead of what seemed like a cave, I’m now in a well lit space.  Those have made a big improvement, made it easier and more pleasant to work in my brewery.
