You want to get a hold of the Bouncer MD Hack Pack with Tenacious Badger Hops! This pack was so much fun to play around with! The guys at Bouncer Beer Filters have come up with a new use of the Bouncer MD, allowing you to randall in new flavors. To help showcase this, they hooked up with Tenacious Badger Hops. I have gone through and done a video review that you can find here. Here are my thoughts about this latest product!
Wait, did you say Bouncer Promo for the readers of this site? YEP!
So I got a great email today from Tim, one of the guys at Bouncer. He stated it was time for you guys to get a deal!
Happy February! Hey how about a BOUNCER promo for your readers? You can let your followers know that, starting today, they can get the following deals at Amazon:
Now, you know I love the Bouncer and Bouncer MD, see the review here, and the Boil Bro helped me save a batch of cider, as I talked about here, so this to me looks like a great deal! You could use the savings to score some extra ingredients for the next brew!
I use my Bouncer and the Mac Daddy every time I brew. It is great that they have decided to offer this out to you guys too!
So the guys at Bouncer Beer Filters have come up with a new idea, the Boil Bro. They sent one off to me to review in a real world brewing situation. I have used on three batches now, and I am quite happy with it. It it even helped me save a batch! So here’s my Boil Bro review, what I think of it, and will it be good for you.
The Boil Bro Setup
The Boil Bro is a good sized mat. The rubber backing allows it to stay in place on a table or counter, with no slipping. Continue reading
So it is that time of year, when you are looking to find some gifts or holiday stocking stuffers for the homebrewers in your life. Here is a list of some great ideas that any homebrewer would like, or wouldn’t care if they got more of!
- Bouncer Inline Filter – I can’t say enough about these. I love them! I have both sizes for my brewing setup. There are different guage screens for more filtering options. I can’t wait to hack out my Mac Daddy to see other way I can push the limits of homebrewing with!
- PBW Cleaner – Cleaning and sanitation are always something that homebrewers need to do. This gift may not be the sexiest and exciting, but this would open up the brewing budget to later get something fun instead of needed!
- Refractometer – The thing of finding out your abv levels of your beer is the fact that you need to waste beer to find out how wasted it could get you (see what I did there?). The refractometer is a great addition that means you need just a few drops to test the levels of your beer rather than a bunch of ounces.
- Spray bottle – This is just a nice little addition that I learned about by reading homebrewfinds.com . I love the handiness of sanitizer for spraying things down in a jiffy. Why waste a bunch of sanitizer with just pouring it out, spraying things down is just as effective. I even use it sometimes when I am running my smoker and using the thermometer on uncooked meat.
- Boil Bro – This is the new product from the guys who brought us the Bouncer. It is awesome. A large placemat to help you organize your brew day, take notes, and even carry a bunch of stuff easily. Take a pic of your notes before you clean it off, and you have a great way to chronicle what happened during your brew day. I have a review of it coming soon.
- Digital Scale – Measuring hops, dextrose, or anything else is a great thing. The more precise you become, the better your beer gets. This will help you replicate your successes!
- Growler – Who doesn’t want a fancy metal growler to bring their homebrew to a buddy’s house? I have a few, since I sometime give them to people to borrow…for some reason they always return empty… I have done some reviews of a few.
There you have it. A few things to help fill out your holiday shopping for your favorite homebrewer!
So over the summer, I moved. It is now a whole new brewing experience at a new brewing location. You don’t realize just how set in your ways you get, till you can’t use those ways any more. It was time to try out the new home brewery location, and try to make a new beer style that I had not tried before. Granite Milkshake is a milkshake IPA that was formulated by yours truly, Brewmaster Jerry. Let’s take a peak at how things went.
So Adventures in Homebrewing Beer has a new sponsor! Bouncer has agreed to sponsor the site. As a result, look for more “trials” of the filter that I reviewed very early on in their product history. I am in the works of a project that will hack the Bouncer MD into a whole new world – keep you eyes open!
Not sure what the Bouncer Inline Beer Filter is? Head over to their website HERE. Looking for what I have said about the Bouncer in the past? Check out my original post here and my review of the new filter.
Since I have begun using my kegerator more, the need to transport growlers of beer has increased. This is especially true with any NEIPA that I brew up. So, I have begun the process of getting more 64 oz growlers. My wife had gotten me a 32 and 64 oz growlers a while back, but I was always chasing after them after lending them out. So I watched Homebrew Finds, and ran into two different 64 oz, vacuum sealed, metal growlers to add to my expanding beer sharing inventory. I got the Zell 64 oz Growler and the Swig Saavy 64 oz Growler on two different deals through Amazon.
So you got yourself the Bouncer MD. Then you think, wait….I need a finer filter for your Bouncer MD? Don’t worry…they have that covered with the new 50 gauge screen replacement! If you haven’t checked out my original review of the Bouncer MD, you can find it here. I didn’t snap any pictures during my first use of the new filter, but I think the video does a good job of showing just how good the new 50 gauge screen does in filtering!
Overall, I think this is a great addition to an already great product! Tim and Doug are right on with the addition of this filter. They also have some pretty cool “hacks” for other ways to use the Bouncer, so check those out on their Facebook page!
So Chris from Homebrewfinds.com is a very ingenuitive builder when it comes to projects for your homebrewing aresenal. I had read about his recirculating draft line cleaner before I got my kegerator from my grandfather. Now that I had draft lines that needed to be cleaned, it was time to get to work. This is something that you definitely NEED if you have a kegerator or keezer at home.

A time comes in a homebrewer’s career that he or she decides to take another step. For me, it was time to do some all-grain brewing. Sometimes, there is a huge outlay in equipment costs to get you to that point, but fortunate for me, I had some great gear already, and just needed to add the mash tun. After some research, I decided to build the AHA Cooler Mash Tun.
For my build, I followed the basic plans that were outlined for the Denny Con Cooler Mash Tun. I got the following items from Amazon to complete my project: Continue reading
