Make no mistake about it, the seven gifts below are sure to delight your favorite beer brewer, including yourself. With so many options, we bet you'll have a tough time choosing just one item.
If you're serious about transporting and storing your beer, the GrowlerWerks Pressurized SS Growler is the ultimate beer brewers' toy. Not only is the uKeg 64 insulated, its pressurized cap keeps the carbonation fresh. And the built-in pressure gauge that goes from 0 to 30, along with the helpful guide included, ensures your PSI for that pilsner doesn't get mixed up with your chocolate stout.
Made of stainless steel, this durable, portable keg is shatterproof and locks with ease. Carbonation shelf life is said to last for up to two weeks, so you can take your time enjoying that tasty batch you brewed last week.
Perfect for beginners, the Four-Gallon Fermenter with lid and spigot is the ideal beer brewers item to stock up on. Because of its compact size and inexpensive price, the Fermenter is a great investment for those who enjoy experimentation with small batches. The plastic beer stein shaped device comes with a lid, volume sticker, airlock, grommet, and spigot but assembly is required.
Every beer brewer needs a Cooler Mash Tun with a thermometer. Because regulating the temperature is important while filtering the wort out of the grain, the Cooler Mash Tun avoids any draining mishaps while keeping the batch fresh.
The custom, weldless ball valve, thermometer fittings, and stainless steel fittings, along with silicone tubing and gaskets, make cleanup a breeze. Lightweight and sturdy, this cooler is easy to take along with you, no matter where you are.
Making delicious homebrewed beer is a fun and rewarding process. Make sure that every batch of beer tastes fresh and free of leftover ingredients with the ultimate draft cleaning kit. Whether you're cleaning your home keg or a larger brewing system, you'll rest easy with our kit.
Comes with a hand pump and four-ounce beer line cleaner for a thorough system cleanse, along with a faucet wrench and brush.
There's a reason they call this product the "King" - because it rules. Keg King Kegerators are top of the line when it comes to stainless steel kegs. Precision digital temperature control (from 26 - 82 Fahrenheit), rolling casters, glass racks, and MKII CO2 regulators are just a few of the bells and whistles the Keg King Kegerator offers.
And did we mention the three, forward-sealing mounted Intertap beer faucets? Talk about convenient! The tower cooling fans are also brilliantly designed to keep foaming issues at bay by blowing old air directly into the tower. This sleekly designed keg is also able to store pint or tulip glasses inside.
Testing the pH of your homebrew is a breeze with the Milwaukee pH Meter with ATC. Considered to be one of the most accurate meters out there (with .01 accuracy), the Milwaukee is the type of tool every beer brewer needs in their arsenal. The separate temperature probe is perfect for fine-tuning readings independent of the submerged electrode.
Because of its portable and lightweight size (it only weighs two pounds), it can easily be handheld or stored away on a shelf or in a cabinet. The battery life lasts 500 hours, and you can't beat the two-year instrument warranty.
Solid construction and efficient design are the top reasons why the Motorized MaltMuncher Pro is a beer brewers' dream. This powerhouse motorized grain mill is built to last, with its bamboo baseboard, sturdy stainless-steel construction, and heavy-duty motor. Not to mention its cold-rolled steel rollers able to power through six pounds of grains a minute with ease.
The included grain bucket with a handle holds up to 25 pounds of grains, plenty to fast-track the brewing process. And with just a five-minute assembly time, seriously what's not to love?
