Back In Stock! The SpinCycle Overboard from Brew Hardware – NO DRILL Kettle Whirlpool Return – $15

SPINCYCLE OVERBOARD, NO-DRILL KETTLE WHIRLPOOL RETURN

SpinCycle Overboard NO DRILL Kettle Whirlpool Return  from Brew Hardware

More Info

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

Brewers that use immersion chillers and also own a pump should know that recirculating the wort back into the kettle to whirlpool the wort makes for much faster cooling and will also make a concentrated pile of trub and hop particles in the center of the kettle bottom.

This is our third version of the industry leading whirpooling hardware. The original SpinCycle and SpinCycle Submerge both require a hole to be drilled into your kettle. Some people drill holes without a second thought but this one is for people who can’t or do not want to modify their kettle.

We’ve built this unit one at a time on a customer request basis for years but we’ve finally bulk manufactured them to be able to get them out faster. It starts with a length of 1/2″ OD 304 polished SS tubing that bends up and over the kettle wall, then drops straight down through a heavy duty spring clamp. Finally the bottom is bent 90 degrees to kick the output to your sidewall and make the liquid spin.

You have your choice of how the flow gets in to the unit. The cheap way is to select “open tube on the end” and then just clamp your hose over it. The more realistic option is to select “Silver soldered male Camlock” if you use camlock quick disconnects in your system. Note that in this particular case, the cam is TIG welded at our factory even though the option says “silver soldered”. This is the version shown in the main picture.

The other choice is what the maximum drop is from the top of the pot to the output tube. To be clear, these are the lengths when the tubing is slid as far down in the clamp as possible. You can easily shorten the depth by taking pressure off the spring clamp and sliding the tubing up.

Taprite Brand! Two Pressure Regulator – $96.99 at Brew Hardware

TAPRITE T752HP-02 DUAL PRESSURE TANK MOUNT CO2 REGULATOR MFL OUTPUT

Taprite T752HP-02 Dual Pressure Regulator from Brew Hardware

More Info

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

High quality dual gauge, tank mount, dual pressure regulator with adjustment knobs.
Dual output pressure capability brings your kegging setup to the next level. What’s that? Wheat Beer and Bitter on tap at the same time. Boom. It would be even more important if you want to have a soda or sparkling water on tap at the same time since it requires almost twice the pressure as beer.

Regulator Outlet Type: 1/4″ Male Flare (MFL). Connect a hose to the outputs with swivel FFL barbs. If you want to split each output to several more kegs, you can add hose barb tees or distribution manifolds on the inside of your kegerator.


 

Made in the USA: As of this posting, Taprite’s about page says that.. “Taprite products are proudly made in the USA”.  Check site for current country of origin claims.

Benefits of a two pressure regulator… 1. Serve different beers at different pressures/carbonation levels, 2.  Serve and carbonate at different pressures (one “house” pressure, and another higher pressure for quickly carbonating) and 3.  Use one regulator for a house pressure and the second for utility functions such as purging kegs and carboys and transferring under pressure.

As of this posting Brew Hardware has this quality Taprite brand regulator on sale for $96.99.  Shipping is an additional fee based on your location and order size.

Stainless Steel PRV for Spunding Valves – $11.99 at Brew Hardware, Back in Stock

stainless steel adjustable prv spunding

WELDLESS BULKHEAD WITH PIN LOCK GAS from Brew Hardware

More Info

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

1/4″ NPT threads. 100% stainless with a buna seat.

0-30psi give or take. Spring-based relief valves are not exactly precision so expect a plus or minus of a couple PSI.

Uses? Measuring carbonation level in a keg already carbonated (measure temp, measure constant pressure over an hour, refer to carbonation chart), Vent a keg that is naturally carbonating with priming sugar to avoid overcarbonation, pressure ferment in a corny (the true meaning of spunding).

We include this item in our complete spunding units.

Warning: Be extremely careful with pressurized vessels. This item is not suitable as the only means of pressure relief in a completely sealed tank because the flow rate is relatively low and it may be clogged easily such as in the case of fermentation will inadequate head space. Please consider using a secondary pressure relief method at a slightly higher pressure setting for added safety. In the case of a corny keg for example, the lid has a pressure relief that will blow before the safe pressure rating of the keg.

Note: some customers have expressed confusion or disappointment in how this unit behaves. To be very clear to avoid confusion, this unit does not have reliable visual indicators to help set the unit to vent at a specific pressure. In other words, there is no detent or marking that says “vent at 10 psi”. Spring-based vents are relatively crude devices and as such the exact venting pressure at any given knob position is only reliably gauged by pressurizing with an external source such as compressed air or CO2 and observing the vent pressure with an installed pressure gauge such as how we build our spunding valves.

Another way to say it as a practical example, if you want to set it to vent at 10 psi, you would tighten up the knob, apply about 20 psi into the system and then rotate the knob counterclockwise until it begins to vent. Watch the gauge and see where it stops venting. That is now the current vent pressure setting. If it’s higher than desired, rotate the knob a little more counterclockwise until venting starts and then stops at the correct pressure. Once you think you have it right, add more pressure to the system and make sure it vents down to the pressure once again.


 

This could be used as part of a Spuding Valve assembly.  A Spunding Valve [See: Spunding Valve Resource Post] allows you to ferment under pressure, naturally and precisely carbonate in the keg, fix over-carbonated beers and lots more.

  • As of this posting, Brew Hardware has it for $11.99.
  • These sold out quickly after I last posted them.  As of this posting they’re available again.  Check product page for current availability

Back in Stock… Brew Hardware 10 Gallon Cooler to Mash Tun Conversion Kit – $68 + Hands on Review

cooler conversion kit

This Brew Hardware Mash Tun Conversion Kit includes everything you need to convert a 10 gallon Igloo or Home Depot Rubbermaid Cooler to a Mash Tun.  Note that it does not includes a cooler.

This kit includes:

  • 12″ stainless steel domed false bottom with upgraded large ID connection elbow
  • One piece (Brew Hardware custom designed) machined bulkhead with interior barb
  • 2 piece stainless ball valve – can be upgraded to 3 piece
  • Required length of high temp silicone tubing
  • Does not include cooler or barb/camlock.  Barb and camlock fitting options are available under accessories on the right side of the screen.

from Brew Hardware: “What makes our kit different than the competition? Ugh, now we have to brag just a little. The bulkhead we include in this kit is custom machined out of hex bar stock to our exact specifications making it extremely simple to install and leak free from day one. It’s not a bunch of off the shelf parts made with half a roll of teflon tape. We also use a high flow elbow connector at the false bottom which also features a custom made smooth bore retainer. Long story short, we’ve held off on offering cooler false bottom kits for a long time until we had all the high end components described here.” [full product description]

Options are available both for an Igloo 10 gallon cooler and for Home Depot’s 10 gallon cooler.   A complete converted option is also available.  That includes the cooler along with your choice of connection fittings.  In my experience it’s cheaper to grab the conversion kit from Brew Hardware and source the cooler separately.  See some links to compatible coolers below.

This is the conversion kit I use and it’s… awesome.   tn_img_0322-300x225Check out my Hands on Review.

  • This has been sold out for quite some time.
  • As of this posting a limited number are back in stock at $68.
  • Pricing and, especially, availability can vary.  Check Brew Hardware for current, description, price and availability.

Brew Hardware FFL to Male Beer Thread Adapter – homebrew kegs on commercial system – $5.99

Female Flare Adapter to Beer Thread via Brew Hardware.  This adapts ball lock QDs to beer thread.  These fittings allow you to easily serve homebrew kegs on a commercial kegerator.

More Info

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

Woah, what’s that? A game changer? Yes!

Picture this. You use homebrew corny kegs for you beer but you want to bring a keg over to your buddy’s house for a party. The problem is that he has a commercial kegerator and no, he won’t let you cut the hoses to attach your ball lock QDs. How about trying to serve from a corny keg at a commercial facility, such as for a wedding? There’s no way you’re going to get them to modify the lines.

Thread these fittings on your MFL equipped ball lock beer and gas quick disconnects and now you can thread on any hoses that are part of a Sanke keg dispensing system.

The picture shows the adapter threaded on to a black QD and there are other pieces shown as well. This item and price is for ONE fitting with 1/4″ FFL threads on one side and 7/8″ Male Beer thread. It does not include anything else in the picture. Beer thread is what is typically found on the back of a faucet shank. Therefore it is compatible with all of our tailpieces and beer nuts. You will need TWO of these fittings to convert a SANKE/commercial kegerator to ball lock soda keg connection, one ball lock liquid QD and one ball lock gas QD.

The tailpieces that are attached to your kegerator hoses SHOULD have black gaskets as shown in the picture. You may as well pick up some replacements while you’re buying these fittings. One last thing… if your gas tailpiece has a small bump out on its face (compare it to the liquid one to see), you’ll be thrilled to know that the latest version of these fittings has a counterbore on the face to accept this odd tailpiece.


 

As of this posting, Brew Hardware has this on sale for $5.99.  Check product page for up to the minute price and availability.
