If the dad in your life is a brewer or beer fan, then these beer-centric gift suggestions are sure-fire hits come this Father’s Day.
Ss Brewtech Glycol Chiller (3/8 hp)
There’s a reason all the pros chill fermentation tanks with glycol—it just works. Enjoy that same efficiency and ease-of-use at home with Ss Brewtech’s updated and improved Ss Glycol Chiller. The vertical design saves space, and the unit is designed to chill up to six fermentors at a time.
Nothing looks more classic than the copper finish on the GrowlerWerks uKeg 64. Keep your beer carbonated for two weeks using the CO2 regulator in the cap, while the double wall vacuum-insulated stainless-steel body keeps your beer cold and fresh. Pour in style from the built-in tap and know exactly how much beer is left with the handy sight gauge. There’s no better gift for the beer geek or brewer in your life.
Anvil 7.5 Gallon Stainless Bucket Fermentor
7.5-gallon Anvil bucket fermentors are built from 304 steel and feature coned bottoms for settling out yeast and trub, a rotating racking arm, embossed level markings inside the vessel, sturdy handles, and a liquid crystal thermometer for keeping an eye on fermentation temps. It’s durable, easy to use, and easy to clean.
Waiting for beer to carb is about as fun (and fast) as watching paint dry. You’ve racked it and now you want to drink it (without wait- ing)—what’s a brewer to do? Hook your corny up to the Blichmann QuickCarb, let it run for an hour or so, and voilà—fully carbonated beer. Once you use it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Five Star Chemicals
From the squeaky-clean folks at Five Star Chemicals come PBW and B.S. Remover, two formidable products brewers shouldn’t be without. PBW does the work of a cleaning crew, working off caked-on ick and grunge with an alkaline formula, and B.S. Remover uses an acid-based formula to remove organic deposits that alkaline cleaners can’t break down. Together, they’ll clean anything!
Hops, Direct From the Farm
Buy hops straight from the farm with Hops Direct from Puterbaugh Farms. Dual-purpose Centennial available now with nice clean lemon, citrus, and pineapple notes (alpha acid 9.5%–11.5%). Available in 1 lb, 5 lb, 11 lb, and 44 lb units. Check out their wholesale pricing on their website.
Temperature control is one of the best upgrades you can invest in for your home brewery. The BrewJacket Immersion Pro gives you the flexibility to chill and heat in most fermentation vessels (from plastic and glass carboys to popular stainless- steel vessels and more), with precise control. With a wide temperature range—it cools or heats up to 35°F (20°C) from the ambient air temperature—you’ll never have to worry about your fermenting beer again.
Blichmann RipTide™ Brewing Pump
Pumps make your brew day flow so much easier, and this first pump designed specifically for homebrewing makes priming and cleanup a breeze. From the built-in valve to the stainless-steel removable tri-clamp pump head, every detail was considered. It’s the new gold standard!
Ss Brewtech Unitank
One tank to Rule Them All! Homebrewers can now ferment, condition, and even serve beer by getting in on the same stainless-steel unitank equipment from SS Brewtech that was formerly only available to pros... at the perfect 10-gallon homebrew size. Beautifully designed and constructed. You’re certain to find more uses for these than you ever imagined!
