Announcing: Ghost Town Brewings Nose Goblin Imperial IPA Kits – Direct from the Brewer Recipe

Ghost Town Brewings Nose Goblin Imperial IPA homebrew recipeGhost Town Brewings Nose Goblin Imperial IPA via MoreBeer


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

Description
Nose Goblin from Ghost Town Brewing in Oakland, CA is their infamous West Coast-style Imperial IPA with big honking notes of white grapes, melons, berries, and uncouth levels of dankness. This dangerously smooth double IPA is all about the hops with very little malt character. Almost exclusively comprised of Pilsner with just a dash if acidulated malt, Nose Goblin is a beautiful clear straw color in the glass. Your nose if free to pick up all of the incredible flavor and aroma contributed from ample whirlpool and dry hop additions.

Ghost Town Brewing’s Nose Goblin took Gold at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival, besting 170 other beers submitted in the Imperial IPA category. Although Ghost Town will switch up the hops on every edition of Nose Goblin, this kit is modeled after the same recipe that took 1st at GABF, featuring additions of Nelson, Strata, and Mosaic® CRYO HOPS®

Now Available… Kegland Digital Gauge – Backwards Compatible w/Inline Regulator & BlowTie + Reviews for Both

Kegland Digital Gauge to fit Spunding Valve and Secondary Pressure Regulator

Kegland’s DuoTight system along with their EVABarrier Tubing are amazing. Check out my extensive hands on review for a deep dive into the system.

This is a heads up that Kegland has released a digital regulator option that works with their great inline regulator and BlowTie Spunding Valve.

It appears as though though Kegland will offer both complete digital inline regulators and spunding valves and a regulator only option that will retrofit analog units.

I announced that these would be coming a while back. MoreBeer has just put them in stock!

There’s also a version that’s designed to connect directly to 8mm DuoTight fittings

Announcing: WilliamsWarn BrewBottler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler – $159.99!

WilliamsWarn BrewBottler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler KEG921

WilliamsWarn BrewBottler Counter Pressure Bottle Filler via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

The next generation WilliamsWarn BrewBottler. This counter-pressure bottle filler allows you to bottle from a ball lock homebrew keg without losing any carbonation. The BrewBottler can accommodate bottles up to approximately 330 mm (13″) in height and 150 mm (5.9″) in diameter. This allows a variety of bottle types to be used, including bottle sizes up to 3L (101 oz.).

Filling
Once the gas and beverage hoses are connected via the simple push-lock fittings on top of the valve, you just open the gas side for a few seconds to pressurize the bottle and purge air, close that and then open the beverage side to allow beverage to enter. With back-pressure in place, the beverage fills without foaming issues or carbonation loss. Pressure release and therefore fill flow rate are controlled by how open the variable pressure valve is set.

A 500ml bottle (1 US pint) can be filled in 40 seconds and a full 5-gallon keg can be bottled in roughly 30 minutes. Since your beer was already carbonated before you bottled it, your bottled beer is ready to consume immediately! And thanks to the purging process, your beer will be exposed to less oxygen and will maintain its original flavor profile for longer. Keep some bottles on hand, send them to your next competition, or take them to a party to impress your buddies.


 

MoreBeer has this available on pre-order for $159.99. If you’re familiar with WilliamsWarn you’ll recognize that this is very well priced for anything with their name on it.

Delivery is currently estimated in early May

Announcing: Color Coded Post O-Rings in Gray and Black to Match QDs

If you’ve read Homebrew Finds for long you’ve no doubt seen Valuebrew’s Blue and Green Custom Color O-Rings in food grade silicone. These are featured in our very popular keg rebuild step by step.

Valuebrew has just introduced Gray and Black o-rings. As the picture indicates these are designed to match standard gray and black keg QDs.  These have become standard colors on ball lock, pin lock (usually the bottom portion of the QD) and even recently released Kegland QDs (center portion).

The gray and black are also made from food grade silicone and also available in bulk quantities.

Valuebrew has generally struggled to keep things in stock, however, I have no specification indication that availability will be an issue on these.

Reader Feedback!

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.
