Finding DuoTight Compatible Locking Clips

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.

DuoTights are… awesome.  Check out my extensive Hands on Review

Keg Dip Tube O-Rings – Food Safe Silicone

Complete Lineup: Bulk Food Safe Keg O-Rings

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

Finally a food safe option!  Valuebrew has a selection of silicone food grade o-rings.  They also have replacement universal poppet o-rings and internal QD o-rings, also food grade.

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.

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.

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.
