Why would you want a Vacuum Sealer for homebrewing?
Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops. You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys. Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

24″ Stainless Brewer’s Whisk – Extract, All Grain and Whirlpooling – $12.50 Shipped

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 09/02/2014 - 20:37

This is a great piece of equipment.  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 - $12.50 + Free Shipping


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!

Blichmann G2… Shipping Update + Shopping Tip

Homebrew Finds - Tue, 09/02/2014 - 12:13

On the 26th of August I ordered a new Blichmann BoilerMaker G2 for my home brewery.  I have two G1 Kettles that I’ve been very pleased with.  I’m excited to put the G2 to work.

The recently announced G2 Kettle is available in 7.510152030 and 55 gallon sizes.  The BoilerMaker G2 is designed and manufactured in the US.  It includes a Site Glass w/Laser Etched Volume Markers, Adjustable Angle BrewMometer Thermometer, Linear Flow Valve (think ball valve only better?) and tool-less dip tube.  The G2 also features a 1.2 height to diameter ratio.

I had a chance to see John Blichmann do a demonstration at NHC and one thing that came through is his passion for homebrewing and homebrewers.  He started building this gear because… he’s a homebrewer.  This translates into a bunch of well thought out features that are designed with the homebrewer in mind… the valve now features a cool touch silicone handle, the finish is not brushed to hide finger prints, the lid can be stored on the kettle, the handle and the valve can now be oriented in any direction and… more.

Shipping Update:  For those of you that have been considering one of these and are wondering about shipping speed.  I ordered my 10 gallon on the afternoon of August 26.  I received an email, today, almost exactly 7 days (to the minute) later saying that it has shipped.  Of course, no guarantees yours will ship in that amount of time, but it does indicate that Blichmann is generally staying on top of orders.

Shopping Tip:  Blichmann gear is generally price controlled.  That means it’s going to be about the same price no matter where you get it.  AIH offers the equivalent of 5% back via their rewards program.  They are also offering free shipping.
