6 Pack of Stir Bars by SEOH – use for yeast starters – $10.43, $1.74 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.  DIY Stir PlateThe vortex to the right was created with the help of this stir bar.  See: The HBF Stir Plate Mounting-Thingy for more info.

Ends Today: 4 x Pin Lock Kegs – $116, $29 Each AND… Get a FREE $25 Gift Card

pin lock homebrew kegs

4 x Pin Lock Homebrew Kegs via Austin Homebrew Supply

More Info

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

This is a set of four used 5 gallon pin lock kegs. All kegs are pressure tested. Used kegs may have minor dings and scratches along with stickers from previous companies. Kegs will include the o-rings and poppets that were installed when received by AHS. We often change an o-ring or poppet to get the tank to hold pressure. It is a good idea to have a spare set of replacement o-rings always on hand, with some keg o-ring lubricant. Lubricating the o-rings will help to make them last longer, but eventually they will become brittle and have to be replaced.

If you plan to keg your homebrew then you will need kegs and a kegging system. 4 Kegs at such a low price makes it easier to always have a beer in the keg ready to serve, and to have a keg free to use when a batch is ready to go.

The keg requires pin lock attachments for both gas and beer sides.

Dimensions: 23″ tall x 8.6″ diameter (58.5 cm x 22 cm).

Good Keg Maintenance
Between each use, kegs need to cleaned and sanitized. Taking off the posts and cleaning them can help ensure great tasting beer.

Please remember these kegs are not being used in the soda industry any longer. Chances are, they are up to 30 years old. They have been used for Soda and might even come from a small brewery that purchased them from a soda company. They will have soda or beer residue inside which will require cleaning. The post may be sticky and difficult to get off as they have years of soda/beer build up in/on them. Please be prepared for a used product as we do not want to sugar coat this in any way. We are not stating that our used kegs are junk, we are simply stating, “These are used kegs”.


 

Why this is a great deal…

  • On Sale: These are on sale for $116.  That figures to just $29 per keg.
  • And… a FREE $25 Gift Card! Spend $100 or more (on ANYTHING, excluding gift cards) and you’ll get a free $25 gift card.  No coupon code necessary for this it will be automatically added to your cart.

Make Better Beer!

Hand crafting beer is a fun and rewarding hobby. The first rule of making better beer is to keep everything that touches the beer clean and sanitized. The Mark II Keg Washer helps to accomplish this task in an easy, efficient, and effective manner.

Save Time, Labor, Space and have fun!

The most labor-intensive and time-consuming task in brewing is cleanup. The Mark II Keg Washer allows you have all your containers and hoses clean by the time your brewing task is done.

Many home brewers set aside containers ?to be cleaned later.? This discourages getting started on the next batch.

The Mark II Keg Washer should be the first piece of equipment you set up and the last thing you put away on brew day or when you transfer your beer from one container to then next.

When transferring beer from one container to the next, we first use the Mark II Keg Washer to sanitize the container that the beer will be transferred to. Then we clean the container that the beer was transferred from.

Mark’s Keg and Carboy Washer via Austin Homebrew Supply


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

Mark’s Keg and Carboy Washer consists of a 1 gallon basin with a stand mounted in the center that can hold either a carboy or a Cornelius Keg. Positioned below the center of the stand is jet nozzle powered by a submersible 500 gallon per hour pump. The basin is also designed to accommodate brew pails and buckets. The basin is molded as one piece of high density polyethylene for strength and durability. The material of the basin is highly chemically resistant and essentially stain-proof.

Mark’s Keg and Carboy Washer includes 2 tube barbs used for cleaning hoses. There is also a T adapter supplied that fits between the output of the pump and the pipe for the jet nozzle. The T adapter can be used for connecting a hose to a quick-connect that can be attached to the output of a Cornelius Keg. This way, the tube inside the keg can be cleaned without disassembling it.
