More Info

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

  • Lab pack drum comes with a plastic lid and can be used to store, transport, and dispose of small, intact containers of hazardous materials and help contain spills
  • Made of blue HDPE, which weighs less than steel, is resistant to dents, punctures, and certain chemicals, and may be incinerated
  • Metal lever-lock ring can be used to secure the lid to the drum
  • Has 14-gallon storage capacity; weighs 8 lb.; measures approximately 26-1/2″ high and 15″ in diameter
  • Meets DOT regulation 173.12 and UN standards concerning the packaging and shipping of hazardous materials

 

Possible homebrew uses includes: Conversion for use a fermenter, grain storage and water collection

I estimate 5 lbs per gallon for grain storage capacity.  At 14 gallons that would figure to approximately 70 lbs of grain storage capacity.  That’s an estimate.

Tetra Whisper Air Pump [Wort Aeration]… $3.68 + free prime ship

51PhS3RJRSL

Tetra Whisper Air Pump (Non-UL) by Tetra.

Of course this is intended for use with an aquarium.  Homebrewers use similar pumps to aerate wort.  Aeration can help reduce lag times, encourage yeast cell reproduction and produce more vigorous fermentations.

Typically you would use both an aeration stone and an inline filter along with this.

6 Pack of Stir Bars by SEOH – use for yeast starters – $11.95, $1.99 each + free prime ship

SEOH Magnetic Stir Bar Plain PTFE 6 x 25mm (Pack of 6)

6 Pack of Magnetic Stir Bars by SEOH.  PTFE 6 x 25 mm (about an inch).

More Info

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

A general purpose stir bar that provides better mixing than cylindrical stirrers. An Alnico V magnet is encapsulated with a two step process, compression and isostatic encapsulation, to eliminate cracks and porosity. Each stir bar is polished to reduce the potential for contamination. PACK OF 6


 

  • Use along with an Erlenmeyer Flask and Stir Plate to do Stir Plate Yeast Starters.
  • What are others saying?  Search this product’s Amazon reviews for “brew” – may include reviews for other sizes or variations
  • Why a Stir Plate? The constant motion of a stir plate integrates oxygen, puts yeast in constant contact with nutrients, relieves built up CO2 and generally helps yeast to grow more rapidly.  That also means smaller starters.
  • Why get 6?  Generally, you’re going to save money buying in bulk.  Having these on hand allows you to do multiple starters at once and… you’ll have spares if you mistakenly dump your stir bar into your fermenter.
  • I have this stir bar and it works great.The vortex to the right was created with the help of this stir bar.  See: The HBF Stir Plate Mounting-Thingy for more info.

Kegmenter UniVessel Fermentation AND Serving Keg – $159.99 via MoreBeer’s Massive Clearance Event – ferment & transfer under pressure, save time!

Kegmenter Fermentation Keg - 7.6 gal. FE582

Kegmenter Fermentation Kegs from MoreBeer!

More Info

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

Want an easy-to-use, stainless vessel that ferments and carbonates? This 29L/7.6 Gallon keg has been modified to allow you to do both! The top is fitted with a large 4 inch tri-clamp lid with two ball lock posts and a pressure relief valve. You can use this vessel to ferment, carbonate, serve, or push the beer through a filter. The posts are recessed which allows you to stack these kegs up to 4 high. A 4″ T.C. end cap with pre drilled hole is also available (H691), which can be paired with a #3 stopper and airlock.

Depending on how long it will take to consume the finished beer, we recommend using two kegmenters, one for fermentation and one for carbonating and serving. After fermentation, there will be a large trub cake at the bottom of the vessel. Leaving finished beer on the trub for too long (2-3 weeks) may eventually lead to off-flavors. Check out our ball lock jumper line (KEG575) to easily transfer from one kegmenter to the other. Also consider our beer filter kit (FIL40), which will allow you to filter the beer during transfer.

Features:

  • Rated up to 2.5 BAR (36 psi)
  • 4″ T.C. lid with ball lock posts
  • Floating dip tube
  • Stainless steel 1.8 mm thick

Use:

  • As a stainless steel fermenter that is easy to clean
  • Great choice for 5 gallon fermentations
  • Easy to pressurize the kegmenter after fermentation to push through a filter and into another keg
  • Fermenting under pressure, allowing CO2 to exit via the relief valve, reduces esters and fusel alcohol production allowing you to ferment at warmer temperatures

The Tilt Hydrometer & Thermometer was designed specifically for homebrewers to monitor both the specific gravity and temperature of your batch while its fermenting without having to open your fermenter or waster any of your hard brewed beer to messy beer thieves and sample jars.

Designed with a high precision temperature sensor and accelerometer, the Tilt monitors your batch with a fine degree of control. The specific gravity is accurate +/- 0.002 within the Tilt’s 0.990 to 1.120 range. The included thermometer is accurate +/- 1 degree F. The Tilt was also built with efficiency in mind. The reduced power consumption allows to to use you Tilt batch after batch with the same battery. Each Tilt comes calibrated and ready to use with an included battery. Battery life is 12-24 months depending on usage.

Brewing Multiple Batches? No Problem! Grab another colored Tilt Hydrometer to monitor multiple brews at once. The app will not read multiple hydrometers of the same color, so be sure to grab one of the other many colored Tilts!
