Beer In Ads #1347: An American Product For Lovers Of Quality

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Sat, 10/18/2014 - 22:14
Saturday’s ad is for Rainier Beer, from the Seattle Brewing & Malting Co., from around the turn of the 19th century, plus or minus. I love the pseudo patriotic tagline: “An American Product for Lovers of Quality.” Not to mention the Statue of Liberty holding up a bottle of...

‘Ove Glove (for Minding Yeast Starters) – $6.79 Shipped + StirStarter – $39.99

Homebrew Finds - Sat, 10/18/2014 - 19:03

I use an Ove Glove when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.

These are also handy on brew day for handling hot (but not wet) ball valves and such.

These are not waterproof. Along those lines, I wouldn’t suggest that you stick your hand in hot wort with one of these on. Or, without one of these on for that matter. I guess the take away here is… don’t stick your hand in hot wort.

Ove Glove – $6.79 + Free Shipping

Perlick 650SS w/Flow Control – $47.99

Homebrew Finds - Sat, 10/18/2014 - 08:18

These just came back in stock…

The Perlick 650SS is a redesign of Perlick’s 545PC Flow Control Faucet.

This faucet is forward sealing, made of 304 Stainless Steel (the 545PC was chrome) and includes a flow compensator.  That flow compensator allows you to adjust the resistance your faucet is exerting.  This means less tubing and potentially less foaming and wasted beer. The compensation feature also makes it easier to serve higher carbonation beers as you can set the faucet to provide resistance to offset the increased pressure needed to store these beers.

Ritebrew recently started carrying the 650SS for $47.99.  That’s a great deal.  They have been out of stock, but are available again as of this posting.

Beer In Ads #1346: Busch Extra Dry

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Fri, 10/17/2014 - 22:15
Friday’s ad is for Busch Extra Dry, a ginger ale that Anheuser-Busch produced, presumably during prohibition (though possibly not, there is a bottle of Budweiser inset at the bottom of the ad, but I can’t quite make out the text). With the tagline Chambertin [a French red wine] held...

Lifeline 64 Oz Growler Carrier – $9.99 – Holds 2 Growlers

Homebrew Finds - Fri, 10/17/2014 - 21:23

These sold out directly from Amazon soon after they appeared on HBF a few days ago.  As a result they spiked up to $16.64 via a third party reseller.  They are back in stock now and are back down to $9.99.

This growler carrier holds two Lifeline 64 Oz Growlers.  These double wall, vacuum insulated growlers are available in uncoated stainless and white.  I’m a big fan of these growlers.  The vacuum insulation means they maintain beer temperature for hours and hours without refrigeration.  Check out my Hands on Review.
