Wine Makers… Free Shipping on 100+ Wine Kits AND a FREE $20 Gift Card, MAP, EDLP Workaround

As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing has a selection of 100+ wine kits that are being offered with free shipping to the contiguous US.

EDLP: Some time ago AIH marked most of these kits EDLP.  That means Everyday Low Price and it also means most of these kits no longer work with promos.  My guess is that’s probably related to MAP – Minimum Advertised Price – agreements.  So, beyond free shipping, no discounts can generally be had.  Wait… workaround…

The Barley Crusher Grain Mill… $109.99 + Free $25 Gift Card + Free Shipping

barley_crusher_grain_mill_7_lb_hopper_full

The Barley Crusher Grain Mill via Adventures in Homebrewing.  I’ve used the Barley Crusher for years and years.  I couldn’t find the order confirmation, but I got it sometime in 2010.  It’s a great mill.

Milling your own grain… 1.  Gives you control over the crush of your grain.  That’s a big factor in efficiency.  A mill allows you to fine tune for your equipment and process.  2.  A mill allows you to save money by buying whole bags of grain.  3.  Freshly milled grain = better tasting beer. and… 4.  Mad street cred… 🙂

About the Barley Crusher

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

The Original Barley Crusher MaltMill, the “Home Brewer’s Best Friend” has proven to be just that. A high quality grain mill constructed using materials that will last a lifetime, 1018 Cold Rolled Steel for the rollers, 6061 Aluminum for the mill body and hopper, tool steel for the axles with Oil Impregnated bronze bushings.

Base easily fits a 5 gallon bucket.

Precision machining with Quality Control and a LifeTime Warranty assures the homebrewer that this will be the only grain mill they will ever purchase!

Details:

  • Rollers are adjustable at both ends to keep the gap spacing parallel giving a uniform crush along the entire length of the rollers.
  • The gap default setting is marked and set at .039 at assembly. Adjustment range is from .015 to .070 thousands of an inch.
  • The rollers have a 12 TPI knurl to efficiently pull the grain through the rollers while leaving the hull intact to form an excellent filter bed for sparging.
  • Comes with a solid base with locators to center the Barley Crusher on a 5 gallon plastic pail. (Pail not included)
  • The standard hopper holds an even 7 pounds and the optional large hopper holds 15 pounds. Using a 3/8 drillmotor at 500 RPM gives you a crush rate of 6 pounds a minute making the big grain bills fast and easy.
  • The Barley Crusher is shipped fully assembled. There are no adapters needed to use a 3/8 drill motor.
  • The Barley Crusher is NOT designed for cracking/milling corn

 

  • As of this posting, this is marked down $47 to $109.99  Check product page for current price, description and availability.
  • Free Shipping: This ships for free to addresses in the contiguous US
  • Get a FREE $20 Gift Card: As of this posting, Adventures in Homebrewing is giving away a free $20 gift card, with every single purchase of $100 or more.  EVERYTHING QUALIFIES.  The one exception is gift card.

BrewVision Thermometer by Blichmann Engineering

The mission of the BrewVision is to put temperatures, timers, and recipe information into the palm of your hand and to provide a fully interactive brew day. This interactive digital assistant brewer makes sure you hit your temps, hold your temps, never miss a boil addition, and chill to the perfect temperature. BrewVision makes every brew day a perfect brew day! This cutting edge wireless thermometer and monitoring app gives you access to all your brew day essential info at the tip of your fingers.

Bluetooth sensors: Break the tether to your kettles and put the power of BrewVision in the palm of your hand! Indoor range is 20-30 ft and up to 100 ft line-of-sight. With +/- 0.5F accuracy you’ll be confident you’re hitting your numbers. Long 100+ hour battery life using 2 AAA batteries means you’ll be able to brew about 20 all grain batches and about 40 extract batches on one set of batteries! The patent pending transmitter and sensor features an exclusive sanitary nut that is easy to clean without removal. Installation is simple and secure. While heat shielding the electronic transmitter from excessive heat is necessary for direct fire kettles, we provide simple solutions and recommendations to keep the transmitter cool. We even offer the ability to remote mount the transmitter with our optional high temp USB cable! Check out our manuals and video’s for more information.

Dashboard: View all sensors and global alarm settings on one screen. Allows for easy access to all your brew day information.

Recipes: Have all your recipe information at your fingertips! Download recipes directly from BeerSmith™ cloud or manually enter to sync with your brew day.
