Dogfish Head has released a portable, affordable version of their double-barreled Randall “The Enamel Animal” infuser called the Randall Jr. In technical terms, its a “organoleptic hop transducer module”—but in layman’s terms, it’s a filtration unit that can infuse your beer with wondrous and exotic flavors.
The Randall Jr. allows you to infuse your favorite brew with just about whatever ingredients you can think up. Midas Touch with lime and mint? Yes please! World Wide Stout with espresso beans? You betcha! Just place the ingredients in the Randall Jr. and pour the beer right over them. Place in a cold climate such as the fridge for 10 minutes or so and you’ve got an amazing concoction on your hands!
Sure, the Randall Jr. would be easy to build on your own (or you could probably just use a tea infuser) but Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione makes an amusing case for his product in the video after the break.
