24″ Stainless Brewer’s Whisk – Extract, All Grain and Whirlpooling… $7.03!

Homebrew Finds - Thu, 10/02/2014 - 18:18

This highly rated 24″ Stainless Whisk has recently sold for $16.70.  Two price drops have brought it down to a record low Amazon price of $7.03.  This is a great deal on a great homebrewing tool!

Check out my hands on review Here

This whisk is great for: 1.  Stirring in extract.  It easily breaks up clumps, 2.  Stirring the mash and 3.  Starting a whirlpool.  If you’re a homebrewer, I think you should consider owning one of these babies.

Update International FW-24 Stainless Steel French Whip, 24-Inch - $7.03 + Free Shipping with $35 order

HBF Reader Feedback…

Jared: After following your site for quite some time now, and purchasing many items because you let me know about them, I just received the 24″ whisk. I can’t believe how awesome this thing is just by pulling it out of the shipping package! I am so excited about this I might just have to brew this weekend even though I don’t really have the time. Not only would this piece be awesome for the mash, but dissolving LME and DME and keep it off of the bottom. What a great piece of equipment and thanks for sharing it!

Aaron: I have this exact same French Whip and love it, works way better than the old mash paddle I used before. It really cuts through the grain and helps ensure no dough balls etc. Definitely recommend this above any other stirring tools I’ve used!
