Update International 24″ Stainless Steel Whisk [Extract, All Grain & Whirlpooling]

Update International (FW-24) 24" French Whip

24″ Stainless Steel French Whip.  Made of 18/8 stainless steel.

I own this whisk and it’s awesome.  It’s my opinion that every full batch (5 gallon+ extract or all grain) home brewer should own one of these.  Check out my hands on review of this whisk.

This whisk is great for: 1.  Stirring in extract.  It easily breaks up clumps, 2.  Stirring the mash (either traditional or BIAB) and 3.  Starting a whirlpool.

Oversize Keg Lid O-Ring – for leaky lids

Oversize Keg Lid O-Ring from William’s Brewing.

About, from William’s: “Unlike standard lid O rings which have a .280″ cross section, our exclusive Oversize O Ring has a slightly larger (.310″) diameter, and is molded from softer rubber, for a more positive seal at low dispensing pressures. An ideal fix for an older keg with a leaky lid, or for any keg that needs to be pressurized before filling to achieve an airtight seal. Fits all brands of kegs, pin-lock or ball-lock, with a 3 by 3.5” clamp down oval lid. ”

As of this posting, this is selling for $3.99.  Check William’s Brewing for up to the minute price and availability.

From HBF Reader David Says: “I have some of these for some Pin lock kegs that I used ball lock lids on that wouldn’t seal up. They are now some of my tightest lids and are great.”

Facebook Friend [Connect with HBF on Facebook] Gus Says: “These things are awesome. Fixed a keg that was headed for the scrap pile. All my kegs rock these.”
