24″ Stainless Steel Whisk [Extract and All Grain Brewers] – $10.80 + free prime ship & what are other’s saying?

Winco 24″ Stainless Steel French Whip


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.

4 Quart/1 Gallon Professional Grade Measuring Pitchers by Crestware.  4 Quart/1 Gallon capacity.

More Info

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

  • Professional grade
  • Commercial use
  • Durable, aluminum
  • Economical, Liquid Measure
  • High quality

 

Note: In my experience, aluminum doesn’t play well with acidic solutions like Star San.  Along those lines, I recommend keeping Star San away from all aluminum items.

I recommend using quality, food grade pitchers on brew day.  I use two high temp capable, one gallon pitchers [ Different model, manufacturer and specs… Rubbermaid Bouncer | Review]  for brew day and a lot more.  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. Those pitchers are on of those purchases.  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 high quality pitchers! What a difference.  I use mine for vorlaufing/recirculating my mash, collecting water for topping up, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day, general measuring and more.
