Top Content Countdown… Our 6th Most Popular Resource Post of 2021… Build a Recirculating Draft Line Cleaning Pump

The directions on most line cleaners call for recirculating the cleaner for some period of time.  Most affordable cleaning setups that are out there include a hand pump.  Operating one of those for 15 to 30 minutes, for each faucet, doesn’t sound fun.

To really clean your draft lines, you need to keep solution flowing for a length of time, not just fill and wait.  Initially I tried to clean my system by pushing line cleaner out of a keg.  This was a waste of CO2.  I also found it tough to keep solution running slowly enough to get the required amount of contact time.  It’s easy to quickly push a cleaning or sanitizing solution through your system under CO2 pressure, but I found it to be a pain to try to do so slowly.  This also requires quite a bit of cleaning solution versus a recirculating pump.

I decided to put together a recirculating draft line cleaning pump setup.

More Info

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

You likely want to monitor the temperature of your wort as it moves from the chiller to the fermenter, and now you can do just that with this In-Line Thermometer. This high quality thermometer features stainless steel quick disconnects for easy installation in line with the rest of your brewing system, and many users install it on the “out” side of their convoluted heat exchangers and counterflow chillers.

As the wort runs through the body of the in-line thermometer it runs across the 2-inch thermometer probe, giving an instant and incredibly accurate reading of its exact temperature. Ryan Barto, our Fulfillment Operations Manager and also the thermometer’s inventor, says that this handy device will help you to keep better control of your mash temperatures, and makes it easier to transfer your wort to your conical through the counterflow chiller.

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

Get pumped with the Pumpzilla Brewing Pump, only available at Great Fermentations. The Pumpzilla is a great addition to your brewing setup, and is designed to make your brew day easier. The Pumpzilla is perfect for recirculating, whirlpooling, or simply moving wort from one vessel to another. It can handle liquids up to 100C / 212F degrees which makes it perfect to use on all steps of the brewing process.

The Pumpzilla features a stainless steel head which is the best material to use for brewing. A lot of brewing pumps in this price range have polysulfone (plastic) heads. The majority of the fittings you attach to your pump are stainless steel, and overtime those polysulfone threads will wear down from the constant screwing and unscrewing of stainless steel fittings. That’s why we use a stainless steel head with the Pumpzilla.

  • Stainless Steel head
  • Can be set on a flat surface by itself without tipping over
  • Quiet Operation
  • Center inlet design makes it easy to prime this pump as the head is easily flooded with wort
  • Inlet and outlet fittings are 1/2 in. female NPT so they will work with any of your standard homebrew fittings

The Super Sucker Transfer Pump – $50.99 + free ship eligible via 12 Deals of Christmas Sale

Super Sucker Transfer PumpSuper Sucker Transfer Pump via MoreBeer

More Info

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

  • Transfer beer or wine between vessels without the hassle of starting a siphon
  • Place your receiving vessel side-by-side or even above the transferring vessel
  • Perfect for transferring between primary and secondary fermenter, or from fermenter to bottling bucket or keg
  • Eliminate excess oxygen exposure caused by hand-pumping or blowing into a carboy hood to start a siphon

The Super Sucker transfer pump is the quickest, most hassle-free solution to moving beer or wine between vessels. Rack from primary fermenter to secondary or from carboy to keg without the excess oxygen exposure that results from hand-pumping a siphon or blowing into a carboy hood. Simply run transfer tubing from a racking cane to the pump and then to your receiving vessel, flip the switch, and let the Super Sucker do the work while you kick back and enjoy a cold beverage.

With the Super Sucker you don’t need gravity or CO2 pressure to move liquid around. Thanks to the pump’s considerable max lift height, you can leave your heavy, full fermenter on the ground and place the receiving keg or carboy side-by-side or even above the fermenter on a countertop.

The 10 mm barbed inlet and outlet are perfect for use with 3/8″ ID tubing. We recommend using our Racking Cane Siphon Kit plus 5 ft. of 3/8″ vinyl tubing. Secure pump connections with butterfly hose clamps for easy set up and break down.

Features:

  • Self-Priming
  • 10 mm Barbed Inlet/Outlet
  • On/Off Switch
  • Max Flow: 1.12 Gal/min
