Masontops True Fit Silicone Grommets For Mason Jar Fermentation Airlock Lids, Sauerkraut, Kimchi, Homebrewing, Wine and Beer Making – 16 Pack

More Info
Highlighted Features
  • INCLUDES 16 TRUE FIT GROMMETS - Ideal for mason jar fermentation, standard airlocks, mason jar straws and other accessories, wine making and beer brewing.
  • DESIGNED FOR PLASTIC AND METAL MASON JAR LIDS - It may seem like a simple component, but we have taken the time to get the sizing, flex, and shape just right for a durable, safe grommet that is easy to insert and remove over and over again.
  • BPA-FREE, FOOD-GRADE, REUSABLE AND DISHWASHER-SAFE - True Fit Grommets are made from premium clear silicone. They can be safely reused over and over and are dishwasher-safe
  • DIMENSIONS - Center Hole - 3/8" diameter (9 mm), Center Channel - 1/16" width (1.5 mm), designed to fit 9/16" lid holes (14 mm).
  • EASY TO INSERT AND REMOVE - Simply punch or drill a 9/16" (14 mm) hole in your mason jar lid and insert the grommet edge into the opening so that the grommet groove catches on the edge.

 

Use to add an airlock port to a container of your choosing.  Most of the grommet offerings I see don’t claim to be food grade.  That’s probably not a big deal considering that most of the time this gets little to no contact with your beer.  Having said that, it’s nice to have a food grade option.

PLAATO Airlock V3 – Wireless Hydrometer and Airlock

More Info

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

Gravity measurements without touching the beer!
PLAATO Airlock is a brand-new way of analyzing your ongoing fermentation. This wireless hydrometer and airlock connects to your local WiFi and sends information about your fermentation straight to your phone. You can track specific gravity, fermentation activity, alcohol percentage, and ambient temperature. And you can do so 100% non-invasively, no contact with the wort needed! By knowing the rate of CO2-release, PLAATO Airlock can estimate the Specific gravity and alcohol content of the batch. Best of all you can use it on all types of fermentation; beer, wine, cider, mead, and hard seltzers!

Monitor your batch from anywhere with the PLAATO App!
With the PLAATO App you are able to monitor the fermentation of your batch from anywhere in the world. This gives you time for other things and peace of mind knowing everything is going as it should with your batch. The same app is used to monitor both PLAATO Airlocks and PLAATO Kegs. Track your fermentation and kegerator stock level all in one place.

Features:

Real-time and historical data tracking.
During the fermentation, you have access to the essential parameters in real-time, giving you a unique insight into how different strains of yeast work, how temperature affects the rate of fermentation, and much more.

Fermentation management.
Keep track of all your fermentations in one place. Each airlock has its own dashboard, letting you type in batch-specific data. There is no limit to how many fermentations you can track simultaneously or to how many people can access the data.

Know when your beer is finished.
When the BPM (Bubbles per Minute) reaches zero, you can be absolutely sure that the beer is finished fermenting – the yeast has fully consumed the sugars – and you can with peace in mind continue with dry-hopping or cold-crashing.

Integratable to your favorite brewing software.
Get everything in the same place – and track your fermentation directly from Brewfather or other brewing platforms.

The science behind the PLAATO Airlock.
Understanding the delicate and yet versatile processes behind brewing is key to unlock its amazing potential, and produce great products with high repeatability, quality, and integrity. The release of CO2 is directly proportional to the chemical reaction rate – ie. how fast the yeast works.

By knowing the rate of CO2-release, we also know how fast alcohol is produced.
If we know the total volume of CO2 released, we also know the total amount of ethanol produced and gravity.
PLAATO Airlock measures both the rate and the total amount of CO2 generated, and is, therefore, able to measure and estimate:

Fermentation activity
Specific Gravity
We know what all you hop heads are thinking, but can I dry hop!?!
YES! No worries, you can open your fermenter and dry hop as normal. The small amount of CO2 that escapes when the lid is taken off only affects the measurements marginally.

Note: Does not include a stopper. Compatible with rubber stoppers and grommets. NOT recommended for use with small or medium universal stoppers.

Track multiple batches with additional PLAATO Airlocks!

Functions:

Measures Fermentation Activity
Temperature Sensor
Specific Gravity Calculation
Alcohol Content Calculation
100% Non-Invasive
V3 Updates:

Redesigned bubbler. The bubbler is slightly smaller than the previous versions, which allows it to expand in contact with water and remain functional for long fermentations.
Redesigned lid. The lid is flexible, which makes room for the expanding bubbler. It is optimized for extra-long fermentations.
App Features
The free PLAATO app lets you have all your PLAATO Kegs and PLAATO Airlocks in the same place. Each airlock has its own dashboard, letting you type in batch-specific data, including:

OG & FG
Fermentation Activity in BPM (Bubbles per Minute)
Temperature
ABV%
Chart with fermentation rate, gravity, and temp.
Share data with friends
Airlock Specs:

Operational Batch Size: 1-13 US Gallons
WiFi Connectivity
Note: WiFi is only compatible with 2.4Ghz networks and is NOT compatible with routers using WPA & WPA2 Enterprise security.
Free iOS/Android App
Waterproof
USB Powered
3m magnetic USB cable – color may vary (included)
Works with any USB wall charger (not included)

Hands on Review: Kegland BlowTie Spunding Valve – New Updates

BlowTie v2 w/Gauge that has been updated to digital, see below for walk through of that process.

A Spunding Valve allows you to maintain a set pressure. If pressure in the vessel exceeds the set point, it is expelled. It generally consists of an adjustable PRV valve, a tee, a gauge and a way to connect to your keg.

Why a Spunding Valve?

There are loads of homebrew related applications for a Spunding valve ranging from pressurized fermentation to naturally carbonating to fixing over carbonated beers and lots more.  Check out our resource post on the subject.  It’s arguably the go-to resource on the Internet on the subject

BowTie v1 Assembly

BlowTie v1 & v2!

This review covers both the original v1 Kegland v1 BlowTie & v2. Both are DuoTight compatible. The biggest difference is v2 has an integrated gauge, where v1 required an add-on gauge.

BlowTie v1 assembly that has been updated to digital, see below for walk through of that process.

But first, more about DuoTight!

Kegland’s DuoTight Fittings are designed to work with EVABarrier Double Wall Tubing.  They offer quick, reliable connections, easy implementation, a variety of fitting options and feature amazing versatility.  They’re also, generally speaking, very well priced.  DuoTights are push to connect fittings and require no tubing clamps.

Duotight Regulator with Gauge

Duotight Regulator with Gauge via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

This 8mm Duotight compatible regulator with 0-60 PSI gauge fits 8mm outer diameter EvaBarrier tubing. Suitable for gas, all components are food grade. The included gauge is accurate to plus or minus 6 PSI.

Note: This unit comes with a 0-60 PSI gauge that is only ¾” in diameter. If you intend to use this regulator in the 10 to 30 PSI range, you will need to order optional gauge C93, which reads 0-30 PSI. Below 10 psi, this regulator is not very accurate. You will also need EvaBarrier tubing to connect this regulator, either our item number Z91 or Z92.

This is perfect for reducing the pressure of one gas line in a draft system – for example, with a single regulator and C02 bottle, you can set the pressure at the C02 bottle with the larger regulator (not included) and then put this regulator inline to reduce the pressure. Handy for when you want to carbonate one keg at 25 PSI and dispense another at 10 PSI.


 

 

  • This allows you to easily and economically control the pressure of each kegerator line independently.
  • As of this posting, William’s Brewing is offering a quantity discount of 10% off when you buy 4 or more.
  • Check out my in depth hands on review of this great tool
  • Related: Use for portable serving!
  • DuoTight Compatible!  DuoTight Fittings and Accessories along with EVABarrier Tubing are… awesome.  In my opinion, the system is a game-changer for kegerator owners and builders.
