Winco 24″ Stainless Steel Whisk [Extract and All Grain Brewers] – $11.97 + free prime ship

Winco FN-24 Stainless Steel French Whip, 24-Inch, 1,

Winco 24″ Stainless Steel French Whip

More Info

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

  • Stainless steel construction
  • Measures 24″ in length
  • Ideal for mixing eggs, sauces and batter
  • Heavy gauge wire loops
  • Dishwasher safe

 

This looks similar to my 24″ Stainless Whisk.  That whisk is an easy upgrade that I generally recommend for all but small batch only brewers.  Check out my Hands on Review of that great tool.

Use this on brew day in your mash tun and brew kettle.  In the mash tun… a whisk like this makes quick work of breaking up up doughballs.  In the brew kettle… Use to incorporate extract, stir the brew kettle or start a kettle whirlpool.

1 Gallon Heavy Duty Pitcher for Brew Day – $15.59 + free shipping

Thunder Group 4.0 Quart Liquid Aluminum Measure Cup

There are several equipment purchases that I look back on and say… I’m really glad I got that, it’s made a big difference.  This pitcher, is one of those.  I went from a mish-mash of too small plastic pitchers, found around the house, that bent under the weight of wort, dripped and leached who knows what into my beer to two of these babies!  What a difference.

These sturdy pitchers hold a full gallon and are food safe at high temps.  The lip around the top minimizes drips.

I use these for vorlaufing/recirculating, topping up and transferring water, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day and more.

Features: 4 Quart/1 Gallon Capacity, Heavy Duty Construction, Riveted Easy Grip Handle,  Internal and External Volume Markings,

I use a similar type of glove (Ove Glove) when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.

These type of gloves are also handy on brew day for handling warm, (but not wet) ball valves and such.

These are not waterproof.  Safety Note: Always use caution when handling hot items or ingredients and always read and follow manufacturer directions.
