Availability Update… Food Grade EPDM Keg LID O-Rings

Keg Lid O-Rings - FDA Rated EPDM

Valuebrew offers a lineup of food grade keg replacement o-rings in bulk quantities.  Most offerings are silicone with one Buna-N option.  Everything they carry is food grade, more info below.  They have some unique offerings like bulk pin lock size post o-rings, replacement universal poppet o-rings, bulk internal QD o-rings and Custom Color Coded Post O-rings – available in two colors schemes, gray & black (matches QD colors) and blue & green (blue for beer, green for gas),

Some of these offerings are detailed on our recently released Keg Rebuild How-To

I’m seeing this on the product page…

“Our wholesale cost on these has sky rocketed and we have struggled to source these at a reasonable price. We’re continuing to look for a supplier that can source high quality FDA rated food safe materials at anything close to a reasonable price. At this point, when our current stock is sold out, we’re anticipating and extended sell out.”

They are not on sale but they’re available. We may see an extended period of unavailability.

StirStarter Stir Plate – $41.50 + Free Shipping & Hands on Review

StirStarter Stir Plate

StirStarter Stir Plate via Valuebrew.  Includes Stir Plate, Stir Bar and “keeper magnet” (helps you retrieve stir bar after use).

More Info

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

Take your fermentations to the next level with the StirStarter!

Includes StirStarter Stir Plate, Stir Bar and Keeper Magnet.

Ships free to US addresses.

This unit has two powerful NdFeB button magnets in the 12 VDC stir motor, which is controlled by a precision voltage regulator for easy speed adjustment. The RPMs of the drive motor are limited, so the motor will not “throw” the stir bar, yet it provides enough to get a good vortex going. A low voltage, plug-in wall transformer provides power to the unit. The black plastic case dimensions are 6″ x 4″ x 2″, large enough to accomodate a 2000 mL flask as shown. A Teflon coated 1″ x 5/16″ stir bar is included. A “keeper” magnet is also supplied to lock the stir bar in place while the yeast is pitched, so the stir bar won’t end up in your fermenter!


 

Includes a lifetime repair or replace warranty.

I’ve used the StirStarter for years and it has worked very well for me.  I can wholeheartedly recommend it to you.  Check out our in depth Hands on Review!

As of this posting, this great stir plate is on sale for just $41.50  Expedited shipping is free to US addresses.  Check the offering description for current price and availability.

Low Stock… Stainless Steel Ball Lock Jumpers – Works with Liquid AND Gas

Stainless Steel Ball Lock Jumper via Valuebrew

More Info

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

A Valuebrew Exclusive! Stainless Steel Ball Lock Jumper with our Food Safe Silicone O-Rings.

Use to connect multiple Ball Lock keg lines without disassembling. This allows you to clean more quickly and easily and allows you to clean QDs along with draft lines.

Works with BOTH liquid and gas posts. This allows you to jump from liquid to gas to do things like purging a keg from top to bottom using the liquid out post.

Note that o-ring color may vary, but you’ll always receive our food grade, silicone ball lock o-rings. Most likely, you’ll receive the pictured custom blue o-rings but we may substitute if we run out of stock. For gas QD connections, we recommend only short term connections as we cannot guarantee a leak free connection. Pictured QDs are not included.

These also feature Valuebrew’s Food Grade Silicone Post O-Rings. Blue are pictured, but color can vary.

Valuebrew has generally struggled keeping things in stock and they’ve… specifically struggled to keep these in stock. As of this posting, these are in stock and on sale. Beyond the discounted price, you can add a second jumper on for even less.

Looking at the product page, they are currently showing low stock. If they’ve sold out… we keep a close eye on these – connect with HBF – and I’ll let you know if they come back in stock.

Valuebrew Swing Top Caps and Adapter – Convert Standard Growlers to Swing-Top Growlers – from $6

Swing Top Growler Cap & Adapter

Swing Top Growler Cap & Adapter from Valuebrew

These convert standard standard screw top growlers to a swing top closure. They are easy enough to install and uninstall that you can move them from growler to growler

These are an easy upgrade to standard growlers that generally seal better and look better. Very nice for when you’re locked into using a certain growler for a refill or to dress up cheap glass growlers.

Check out my Hands on Review!

This is really a re-announcement. These were available a few years back under the ToteGlass brand. They were very popular. They typically sold out in short order each time I posted that a batch was available. They became unavailable months ago. According to the product page, Valuebrew has worked with the manufacturer to re-introduce them!

Quantity discounts are available. Buy 5 and they’re just $6 each. Valuebrew also offers replacement gaskets.

This has experienced multiple sellouts over the past few weeks. As of this posting, all options are back in stock. If they’ve sold out again, stay tuned, we’re keeping a close eye on this item as it’s been super popular. If you missed out on this shipment, connect with us and we’ll let know if and when they return.

More about food safe materials:

For whatever reason, it’s difficult to find food safe keg o-rings.  Maybe some of the o-rings that are available are food safe, but very few are actually labeled as such.

The fact is we’re putting beer (food) in our kegs and we should be using food safe materials whenever we can.  More Info: Food Safe Replacement Keg O-Rings

  • Valuebrew has struggled with availability on some of their options.  This has been particularly true of their keg lid o-rings.
  • As of this posting, EPDM lid o-rings are back in stock.

I’m seeing this on the product page… “Our price on these had sky rocketed and we have struggled to source these are a reasonable price. That had lead to our recent sellout. We’re happy to announce that we have found a limited supply at a reasonable price. For the time being, we will maintain our existing sale price, dependent upon availability.”
