Hen­drix Keg Pres­sur­ized Growler hen­

At press time, the Hen­drix Keg folks had just passed their Kick­starter goal, and that’s one we’re very happy about—the demo units they shared with us were well-built, thought­fully con­sid­ered, and quite ef­fec­tive. The tri­clamp faucet is a great touch, and that fea­ture alone should make coun­ter­pres­sure fill­ing a breeze for home­brew­ers (and en­ter­pris­ing com­mer­cial brew­ers). Ev­ery part on the growler that touches beer is easy to clean, san­i­tize, re­build, or re­place, and the hor­i­zon­tal for­mat is so fridge-friendly that we can’t wait for the larger 128 oz ver­sion on the hori­zon. It’s a fun, well-built, sus­tain­able growler that takes great care of your beer. What more could you ask for? —Jamie Bogner

Ss Brewtech Cor­nelius Keg Wassher ss­­ucts/keg-wassher

Ss Brewtech has built a cot­tage in­dus­try around scal­ing down pro-level brewing gear for home­brew­ers, and their new corny keg washer brings the com­mer­cial ef­fi­ciency of spray­ball CIP (clean-in-place) tech­nol­ogy to the home mar­ket. Just load your 5-gal­lon bucket with clean­ing so­lu­tion, clamp the washer to your keg, at­tach the fit­tings for the beer and gas posts, and let the pump do the hard work for you. No pipe scrub­bers nec­es­sary. If you’re like us and would rather spend more time drink­ing your beer with friends than clean­ing and san­i­tiz­ing kegs, this tool is quite a time saver, and we have a cou­ple of kegs of old mys­tery beer that are just beg­ging for a run with the washer. —Jamie Bogner
