  • NSF Certified
    Certifies that ThermoPop 2 conforms to the requirements of NSF/ANSI 2 – Food Equipment.

Thoughts From HBF…

The ThermoPop 2 offers 1/10th digit display which is a massive improvement over the ThermoPop 1. It also features an auto-rotating backlit display and super fast 2-3 second response times and… it’s rated IP67 waterproof.

I would say that this bridges the gap between the Classic Thermapen and the Thermapen ONEReview. In some ways it clearly exceeds the capabilities of the Classic Thermapen and at a much lower price.

If you’re looking for a super high quality thermometer backed by ThermoWorks and the Thermapen ONE is out of your price range, this is a great option.

Announcing: BrewBuilt X2 UNI Conicals!

From MoreBeer:

We guarantee you will love the fit and finish of the BrewBuilt X2 Uni Conical. Born of thousands of hours of research, contemplation, and development; the engineers and critical minds behind its realization scoured years of feedback from home and professional brewers alike to determine the ideal feature set of a stainless steel conical fermenter. Made entirely of 304 stainless steel with a mirror-polish finish inside and out, this unit is purpose-built to advance your fermentation process, improve the quality of your finished beer, and look good doing it. Available in three models: the X2 Uni, Uni+ and Jacketed Uni. No matter which path you choose, you’ll be well on your way to making higher-quality beer for years to come.

X2 Uni

The base model Uni offers the most affordable entry to fermenting with a BrewBuilt X2 Conical. Pick up the fermenter now and add upgrades at your own pace. You will love the premium feature set this conical has to offer right out of the box. Extra-large 2” bottom port and stainless butterfly valve makes dumping yeast and hop trub a cinch. The welded-bar reinforced four-leg base gives this unit an extremely sturdy, and there’s no need to add a bracing shelf if you choose to upgrade with rolling casters. The handles feature a molded silicone grip and stop half-way when they swing out so you won’t pinch your fingers when you pick up the fermenter. Other features you’ll love include etched internal volume markers, adjustable feet, sample valve, thermowell, and the unique Blowoff U Barb. With a host of premium upgrades and accessories available, you have plenty of options for improving and customizing the X2 Uni to best suit your needs and brewing style.

X2 Jacket Uni

When it comes to temperature control for a homebrew conical fermenter, in-solution cooling coils have long been the answer. It’s a simple, relatively inexpensive apparatus that can offer adequate performance in most scenarios, especially for fermenters in the home-level size range. But nothing compares to the performance you get with a jacketed tank. Once again, BrewBuilt looked to professional-level conicals for inspiration and decided it was long overdue for jacketed conicals to be readily available for homebrewers. Circulating cooling solution through the jacket provides your fermenting beer with added insulation from ambient temperatures, allowing for increased cooling capacity in warmer environments and cold crashing after fermentation is complete. The X2 Jacketed Uni also comes standard with the Flex Chamber, Pressure Pack, and neoprene jacket.

As of this positing, MoreBeer has a limited number of refurbished X1 UNI Conical Fermenters. Availability is limited, check link below to see if you can get in on this batch.

Announcing: Thiolized Beer Kit Series – featuring Phantasm & Omega Thiolized Yeasts!

Thiols are compounds found abundantly in malt and hops, that give off huge tropical notes of grapefruit, passion fruit, and guava. The problem is that these thiols are locked away; inaccessible to homebrewers using traditional ingredients. Now, thanks to science and the geniuses at Omega Yeast, those huge tropical notes can now burst forward in your homebrew creations. Using a mix of malt, certain hop varieties, Phantasm Thiol Powder, and Thiolized® yeast from Omega, you can amp up the juiciness of just about any beer you can think of!

Phantasm and Tholized® yeasts are relatively new, so we worked with the team at Omega and Phantasm to come up with three beer kits, specifically formulated to get the most out of these thiol boosting ingredients. Try them out today, and get that juicy homebrew you’ve been looking for!
