Ancient Brews Rediscovered and Re-Created – now… $10.99 + free prime ship

Ancient Brews: Rediscovered and Re-created by Patrick E. McGovern (Author), Sam Calagione (Foreword)


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

One of Smithsonian Magazine’s Ten Best Books of the Year about Food
A Forbes Best Booze Book of the Year

Interweaving archaeology and science, Patrick E. McGovern tells the enthralling story of the world’s oldest alcoholic beverages and the cultures that created them. Humans invented heady concoctions, experimenting with fruits, honey, cereals, tree resins, botanicals, and more. These “liquid time capsules” carried social, medicinal, and religious significance with far-reaching consequences for our species. McGovern describes nine extreme fermented beverages of our ancestors, including the Midas Touch from Turkey and the 9000-year-old Chateau Jiahu from Neolithic China, the earliest chemically identified alcoholic drink yet discovered. For the adventuresome, homebrew interpretations of the ancient drinks are provided, with matching meal recipes.

6 Universal Poppets by Ferroday [Ball & Pin Lock Kegs] + Tip & Keg Parts Roundup – $6.64 + free prime ship, w/coupon

Poppet Valve,Ferroday 6 Piece Cornelius Type Universal Poppet Valve Draft Beer Parts Fits Ball & Pin Lock Kegs

6 universal keg poppets by Ferroday.  Stainless steel construction, replaceable o-rings.  Fits most ball and pin lock kegs.  Made of 304 food grade stainless steel.

More Info

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

  • Poppit Valve for Ball Lock and Pin Lock Kegs, detailed dimensions on picture No.2, fits most kegs.
  • Fits both In (Gas) and Out (Liquid)
  • Made of 304 stainless steel and food-grade material, more healthier
  • Bright color on surface and corrosion resistance, durable in use
  • Package: 6pcs poppet valves

 

I use universal poppets exclusively when rebuilding kegs.  Tip: Universal poppets fit the vast majority of kegs without issue.  I have had a couple kegs that ended up being a bit too tight with these.  It’s an easy fix.  Use a pair of wire cutters or Nipper Pliers to trim the universal poppet.  I suggest taking off about half of a coil and testing.  You want the QD to slide on easily and for it to reliably hold pressure when the QD is off.  Taking off a half of a coil and testing should help you make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.

ITC-308 Dual Stage, Pre-Wired Digital Temperature Controller with WI-FI by Inkbird

More Info

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

  • [WIFI & APP] WIFI smart controller supports both IOS & Android,WIFI supports 2.4GHz Wi-Fi router, free APP “InkbirdSmart” which is able to monitor temperature at any time.
  • [Dual Relay Output] Dual relay output, which can connect heating and cooling device at the same time.
  • [Alarm for Safe] High/Low temperature limit setting alarm.
  • [Convenient Design] Plug-n-play, easy to use. Support ℃/℉reading and Temperature calibration.
  • [Maximum Output Load] 1100W(110V).

 

This controller can control both a heating and cooling device.  Alternatively, it can control a heating or a cooling device.

In my opinion the original ITC-308 was and is a game changer as far as homebrew temp controllers.  In comparison to available controllers available at the time the ITC-308 was released, it offered loads more features, including dual stage control, for a fraction of the price.  Game changer!  The addition of Wi-Fi control and monitoring to this great controller has made a great temp controller even better.  Check out our Hands on Review of the ITC-308.  That includes a section on the WiFi version.

Ozeri Pronto ZK14 Digital Scale – weigh homebrew hops, grain & more – $9.33… 73% off list

Ozeri ZK14-L Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale

Ozeri ZK14-L Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale

More Info

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

  • Accurate, elegant, easy-to-use digital kitchen scale for your largest and smallest cooking projects – weighs up to 11.24 lbs (5100 grams) with precise graduations of 0.05 oz (1 gram)
  • Automatic Unit Button instantly converts between 5 units of measurements (g, lbs, lbs: oz, oz, ml) and displays results on an easy-to-read LCD screen
  • Precision Tare Button calculates the net weight of your ingredients by automatically subtracting the weight of any bowl or container
  • Features a newly enlarged weighing platform finished in elegant chrome, and 2 large buttons that generate an audible click confirmation. Cleans and stores easily
  • Runs on 2 AAA batteries (included) that automatically power-off after 2-minutes to preserve battery life, and an easy-access battery compartment (no screwdriver needed). Satisfaction Guaranteed

 

What are others saying?  Search this product’s Amazon reviews for “beer” – may include reviews for other sizes or variations

What’s the Tare Function? Tare allows you to subtract the weight of the container you’re using to get a true weight of the contents.  Add your empty container to the scale and press the tare button.  This zeros out the scale.  Now add the thing you’re weighing and the scale displays just the weight of the contents of your container.  In my opinion the tare function is essential for any good homebrewing scale.

Things I like about this scale… It uses easy to find AAA batteries [Search AmazonBasics Batteries]. It has the Tare Feature.  That allows you to essentially zero out your container to get a true picture of the weight of the contents.  Given the specs on this scale (11 lb capacity and 1 gram resolution), it should work for grain, hops, other brewing ingredients and more.
