Promo Code: BEERDEAL

Coupon Description:  MoreBeer.com currently has a coupon code for a $30.95 Home Brewing Whirlpooling Arm.  This stainless steel homebrewing whirlpool arm is designed for installation underneath the handle of your homebrew kettle. this piece of stainless steel home brewing equipment will allow you to achieve a perfect whirlpool in your Boil Kettle. Simply pump your wort from your ball valve, into this piece, which will jet around the inside of the kettle, forming a strong whirlpool. The advantages to a whirlpool are many. It will settle Trub in the center of your kettle, making it easy to pull clear wort from your ball valve. The whirlpool will result in a much higher chilling efficiency if using an immersion chiller, due to the increased turbulation of wort. On top of this, the increased flow will result in higher extraction of hop oils and flavor during flameout additions! This homebrewing spigot is made of stainless steel, ensuring it will be used in your brewing for years to come. It features a 1/2″ Full Port ball valve and a 1/2″ barb. The inner barbed elbow is 3/8″. The bulkhead is a specifically engineered piece of stainless, made for brewing! It features a 1/2″ MPT outlet for hooking up your ball valve directly, along with FPT on the inside for connection of any brewing accessory you might want.

Stainless Steel Homebrewing Quick Disconnects

 

I have compiled a list of some of the best prices I could find on homebrewing quick connects and homebrewing quick disconnects. Many of these deals include free shipping offers. I like to use stainless steel quick disconnects because they shorten my homebrewing day by making my hose connects and disconnects (which I have many of) quicker. With conventional threaded fittings, moving around your tubing can be time consuming, troublesome and even dangerous when working with hot liquids.  Quick disconnects allow you to more quickly and easily move your home brewing tubing. They save time and decrease ware on fittings and hoses. I highly recommend them as an addition to your home brewery. Here are some of the best deals that I have been able to find on home brewing quick connects and homebrewing quick disconnects.

Retrofitting a 7 Gallon Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter to fit in a Chest Freezer

Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter ANIMATION

Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter ANIMATION

 

Recently I had purchase a 7 gallon stainless steel conical fermenter and was in heaven until I realized that it did not fit in my converted chest freezer / fermentation chamber! So you know what that means; time to grab the cut saw and go all A-Team on the conical fermenter.

 

Stainless Steel Conical Homebrewing Fermenters

Stainless Steel Conical Homebrewing Fermenters

 

In the above photo, the stainless steel conical fermenter on the right is the 7 gallon unit that I am converting to fit into the chest freezer.  I am adding a temperature control unit to the stainless steel conical fermenter on the left and will cover that project in a future blog.  So to start, I had to replace the lid on fermenter with the lid from one of my stainless steel brew buckets.  Because the stainless steel brew bucket lid is flat, it saved me a few inches and let me connect a stainless steel elbow pipe fitting so that I can use a blow-off tube as opposed to an airlock which save me another couple of inches.  With those simple modifications, I was just about there.  Next I measured the clearance space from the lower valve to the floor and I had approximately 4 inches of clearance.  So I trimmed each leg down approximately 3 inches as you can see in the photo at the top of the page.

 

The modifications to my stainless conical fermenter worked perfectly and now it easily fits in my chest freezer and I am once again a happy man. You can see the photo below. If all goes well, I will brew my first batch with this fermenter this weekend and will let you guys know how it goes, but so far I have been very happy with the quality. I gave it a good cleaning and there were no leaks, all of the welds are perfect and the valves and fittings are all very high quality.

 

If you are looking to purchase one, they are currently available for just $395!

New Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter!

I upgraded my homebrewing fermentation equipment last week and purchased a new 14 gallon stainless steel conical fermenter.  The model that I decided to go with was the SS BrewTech conical, because it was high quality, had a ton of upgrade options and frankly was the best price out there for a stainless steel conical fermenter.

 

The Conical Fermenter is Available for purchase here

 

In addition to purchasing the base model, I also purchased a temperature control kit. You can get a basic idea how it look by viewing the following image.  Basically, the temperature is monitored via a probe in a thermowell, once the temperature reaches a certain point it pumps either hot or cold water through the stainless steel coin that is in contact with the fermenting beer.

I ended up also changing out the stainless steel racking arm, which was the only item on the conical fermenter that I was not 100% satisfied with.  It was not bad, but I felt that the one that MoreBeer offers on their line of homebrewing stainless steel conical fermenters was superior.  In addition to that I also purchased a stainless steel yeast harvester for my homebrew conical fermenter.
