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 helps you make sure you don’t end up making the poppet too loose.

Hands on Review: BouncerMD Inline Beer Filter

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

BouncerMD “Mac Daddy” Inline Filter

As popular as unfiltered beer is right now, there are still a lot of times in the brewing process when you want to filter your in-process beer to some degree. For me, it’s hop trub when transferring from the kettle to the fermentor. Dry hopping can also get you unwanted debris when transferring into your keg. You’ve got process options like whirlpooling or gear additions like bazooka screens for inside your kettle. The Bouncer filter is another option you can add to your toolbox.

Course filter on the left, Fine filter on the right

The Bouncer filter is like a miniature version of a home water filter. There’s a plastic housing that has inlet and outlet ports, and a clear plastic body that holds the stainless mesh filter screen and screws onto the main housing. The filter screen is made of stainless steel and nylon, and comes in two different mesh sizes. The coarse filter is 20 squares per inch (915 microns), and the fine filter is 50 squares per inch (305 microns).

The Bouncer itself also comes in two sizes- Normal and Mac Daddy. The Normal size comes with barbed fittings to hook up your 3/8” ID transfer hose. The Mac Daddy comes with two sets of fittings- one for 3/8” ID hose and the other 1/2″ ID hose so you can select whatever size matches your siphon or brew kettle valve. The larger Mac Daddy filter also gives you 224% more filter surface area than the base model.

The filter unit is rated for temperatures up to 150F. That means it’s good post-chilling, but not suitable for the hot inlet side into a plate chiller for example. Another creative use of the filter is as a Randall to infuse hops or other ingredient flavors into your beer when serving. More on that in my hands on trial below.

The Top Draw Pick Up Tube – Back in Stock!

The Top Draw Beer Pickup Tube from William’s Brewing!

More Info

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

Do you want to drink the clearest beer possible from your keg as quickly as possible? The Top Draw™ Beer Pick Up Tube fits any ball or pin lock keg, and replaces the rigid stainless dip tube with a stainless float pick up on a 22″ food grade silicone hose. This flexible hose holds a 1″ stainless beer pickup tube which is held 1″ below the surface of the beer by the float.  As the level of the beer in the keg drops, the pick up tube remains 1″ above the surface, always drawing the clearest beer all the way until empty.

Installs in a couple minutes – just unscrew the beer post on your ball lock keg, insert the provided short pick up tube, and attach the silicone tubing to the underside of the tube. Now dangle the hole assembly in the keg and you are done.  For shorter kegs, cut the silicone tube to length.

Includes 22″ of tubing, stainless float with attached pickup tube, and short replacement stainless beer dip tube with seating O ring.

Made from 304 stainless steel, and the silicone hose is made in Texas to our exacting USA food grade standards.

 

I’m a big proponent of the idea behind the Top Draw.  In fact, I’ve used a similar, but very difficult product to find, for years,  See: Cask Widge Floats for Fermenting and Serving Using Corny Kegs? – I’m super excited that William’s Brewing has introduced this product.  It’s a great idea and I’m glad it’s readily available to US homebrewers!!

This has been out of stock for a long time.  Prior to this availability issue, there were availability issues on previous shipments.  As of this posting these are in stock again at $19.99.  I have no idea how many they have in stock, but if you’ve waiting for these, here’s your chance.  Check product page for current price and availability.

Top Draw Beer Pick Up Tube

Free Drinkware!  As of this posting, coupon code 40YEARS gets you a free pair of William’s Brewing Stainless Steel Anniversary Pints.  Those are a $32.98 value!  When you spend $99 or more at William’s Brewing.

Note that you do not need to add the pint glasses to your cart.  Just apply promo code 40YEARS and the free glasses will be added to your order.
