Description

Simply the best, safest way to transfer your barrel aged beer! Pushing your beer out of the barrel with inert gas like CO2 eliminates the possible points of oxidation or infection that could come from using a pump. 
 
After using similar tools available on the market, we took what we liked and disliked and made our own. Obviously we're proud of the price, but perhaps more impressive are the polished finish and the excellent quality welds. 
 
Many brewers like to use this with an attached sight gauge. We found that it's much easier to clean the tool when the sight gauge is detachable, so we offer it as an accessory instead of having it welded onto the wand (sight-gauge H664, clamp H652, gasket h656).
 
Quality Features
  • Stainless lock down mechanism to adjust height
  • Polished stainless tube
  • Compression Bung to form airtight seal with barrel
  • Adjustable lees pin
  • Made from 304 stainless steel
Specifications
  • 1.5" Tri-Clover Outlet
  • 1/4" Stainless Steel Ball Valve with FPT inlet for inert gas
  • 31" height from lees pin to pictured stopper

is this height adjustable to fit any size barrel? I have several 5 and 10 gallon barrels i need it for. HELP!
Francisco Ramos on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, not only does it have an adjustable lees pin at the bottom but the whole valve and bung assembly can be adjusted along the whole length of the racking cane to accommodate various size barrels.
I have several stainless kegs (old firestones) that take a #10 stopper. Any idea if the stopper will fit this sized keg?
Mark Parker on Mar 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure what a #10 stopper dimensions are. The small end of this one is 1.75 inches. At the top its closer to 2.25 inches. It expands to seal the bung hole when you turn the lower screw handle right above the rubber stopper. I would say if the hole in your keg is about 2 inches this will work.
How do you clean the assembly? I cannot locate an instruction manual.
T I on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I run PBW through it for 20 minutes or so: put PBW + water in the boil kettle, hook the BK outlet to the outlet of the cane and put the whole thing in the BK so the solution flows through the cane, out of the BK, back into the top of the cane and out of the bottom again.
What is the recommended CO2 pressure? Looks like it has a PRV.
T I on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We tend not to exceed 10psi when transferring out of barrels. There is always a chance of blowing the head out of the barrel if pressures get too high. I don’t think the prv has ever kicked on.
Does this tool pressurize the tank being transferred from the top or the bottom? I’m concerned about disturbing the lees at the bottom of the tank during transfer if the gas comes out the bottom of the tool.
Shawn wichman on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use one of these in my home winery. It pressurizes from the top (where the rubber seal is) and presses liquid up from the bottom. You have to set the little screw in the bottom to lift the liquid pipe off the bottom of barrel so you don't push up lees that are on the bottom. Works great.

The transfer tool works great. I made the mistake of adjusting the depth without unscrewing the nut and moving the o ring independently, which destroyed the o ring. Replaced the o ring and it worked flawlessly. I would recommend including a back up o ring with the unit. I will definitely recommend this to others.

Decent tool
I liked the tool and it does the job. The gasket tended to work up in between the nut and the spin nut due to the gap being a little too large but overall the tool worked fine.

Very disappointed - appears to be a used item.
Just got this to the brewery and it appears to be a used item. There are barrel contact marks, scuffs on the bung stopper and there is a bunch of black, tar-like buildup on the set screw and threaded plate on the bottom the the racking cane. I can only assume this is schmutz from the bottom of someone else's barrel. We had to have this delivered to our US mailing address and import it into Canada so attempting to return this would be a logistical nightmare which would probably approach the cost of purchase.

I guess we'll have to treat this as a worst case scenario and assume that it came into contact with wild yeast / bacteria.

That being said, the construction and quality seem very good. We have not actually put it into service yet but if the stopper grips and seals well it looks like it will do the intended job.

Seems well made, won't fit smaller barrels
I'm glad I got this, but we get barrels from a variety of sources and some of them have openings that are smaller than the compression bung, which makes this a lot less useful to us than I was hoping it would be.
