Digital Non-Contact Thermometer – $13.90 Shipped via eBay

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 11:26

via eBay.  Etekcity’s DT8380 is selling for $13.90 with free shipping.  For comparison, this same thermometer is selling for $16.98 on Amazon.  It’s worth noting that this is also getting great reviews on Amazon.

Since this is no touch, you can check the temp of yeast washing and yeast rehydration water and your starter wort without the risk of infection.  I find mine particularly useful for rehydrating yeast.

Infrared thermometers should not be considered a direct replacement for your standard thermometer.  A quality IR thermometer will give you a close approximation of surface temperatures.  Note that steam seems to throw off readings.  Uses include: Contained yeast rehydration water, chilled wort or starter temperature, kegerator, fermenter or fermenation area and beer tasting samples.  If you’re looking for a standard thermometer, consider these two Top FindsCDN DTQ450X (review) - ThermoWorks Thermapen (review)

Beer In Ads #1342: Enjoy A Double Diamond Today

Brookston Beer Bulletin - Mon, 10/13/2014 - 22:18
Monday’s ad is another one for Double Diamond, this time from 1949. Part of the Inde Cooper’s “Works Wonders” series, this is a fairly simple, but beautiful looking ad. One think that’s off to me, however, is the color of the green glass. It appears more like that...

Reader Tip: ATC Refractometer – $21.38 Shipped

Homebrew Finds - Mon, 10/13/2014 - 20:51

Thanks to HBF Reader Paul for this tip!

This 0-32 Brix Refractometer is getting great reviews (222 ratings, 4.5/5 Stars).  It is selling for $16.39.  Shipping is $4.99.  That makes it $21.38 Shipped.

Features:

  • Ade Advanced Optics Brix Refractometer
  • 0-32% Brix Scale. Accurate to +/- 0.20% Brix*
  • Sturdy design, made of durable machined Aluminum, not “carbon” plastic
  • Automatic Temperature Compensation (ATC)
  • 1 Year Manufacturer warranty through Ade Advanced Optics

For me, getting a refractometer was one of those upgrades that made a lot of difference.  With a refractometer you need a sample size of two drops.  I figured that this would pay for itself in beer savings alone.  I also had just broken my hydrometer and came to the realization that hydrometers are made of breakable glass that can break!

Refractometers can be used to measure gravity throughout the brewing process.  You can also estimate the alcohol content of your beer if you forget to take an OG with the use of a refractometer and a hydrometer.  Check out Sean Terrill’s excellent refractometer calculator.

Reader Tip: Case Fan – Free After Rebate + Free Shipping

Homebrew Finds - Mon, 10/13/2014 - 12:46

Thanks to HBF Reader Josh for this tip!

Case cooling fan via TigerDirect.  This is selling for $14.99, with a $14.99 Mail in Rebate + Free Shipping (Today 10/13).  Homebrewer’s have used similar fans for kegerator circulation and for putting together DIY Stir Plates.

Josh Says: “This is a 12V device, so you can use an 12v power adapter to power it. I found a 12v power adapter from a phone on eBay for cheap, and just spliced the wires. It does have LEDs that you can hook up as well if you want to light up the inside of a kegerator. This is a somewhat large item fan, but sits nicely atop my kegs to circulate air. I currently do not have a fan grill/finger guard on it, but do have one on order ($5 from Amazon). It has a very nice airflow amount of 110 CFM @ ~700 rpm”
