Beer In Ads #1348: Cool It With The Friendmaker

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 22:39
Sunday’s ad is for Reading Premium Beer, my hometown beer, from 1969. It’s an interesting package they’re selling, 16 oz. pint size bottles in a six pack, but notice they refer to them as “glass cans.” In the 1950s they adopted my favorite ad slogan of all-time:...

A Love Story: Brewing Yeast & Fruit Flies

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 15:45
There was an interesting story posted on Popular Science, specifically their BeerSci series. They did a great job of spinning the story as a love story, albeit an unusual one between fruit flies and brewer’s yeast, especially since the original title of the study they’re reporting on...

Cornelius Fermenter Lids – $9.99

Homebrew Finds - Sun, 10/19/2014 - 15:11

This Cornelius Keg Fermenter Lid is on sale for $9.99.  It has a 3/4″ Hole that’s designed to accommodate a #3 drilled stopper (included) and airlock (also included).  That allows you use a Cornelius Keg as a fermenter.  Use a 5 gallon keg as a secondary for a 5 gallon batch, use a 5 gallon keg as a primary fermenter for smaller batches or use a 10 gallon Cornelius Keg as a fermenter for 5 gallon+ batches.

I have two 10 gallon kegs that I use as primaries.  This allows you to do quite a few things including, easily transfer under pressure, ferment under pressure, carbonate in the primary fermenter and carbonate and serve from the primary (with a cut off dip tube).

Cornelius Keg Fermenter Lid – $9.99

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...
