    I'm trying to find the name of this thing that looks like a bucket on a stick. You see it in all of the old brewing icons.

    I used to be able to post images from goolgle, does anyone know if something has changed?

    Still not seeing it.....except via the link. Looks like what you called it, a bucket (or mini barrel) on a stick.
    Maybe @jesskidden will have a clue?

    Actually I found the name of it after finding this picture. It's called a 'beer tumbler'. Was it used just to remove the beer from the kettle?

    Yes, it's exactly what it looks like. You would use it as needed for sampling or mixing or whatever.

    It's in my avatar. Sticking up in the middle.

    Used to pull samples, and ladel out from the wooden vessels. You can see those in German brewing museums.

    Single serving barrel aged beers were common in the Middle Ages. Like a 13% personal pizza with more calories.

    They put them on a pole so you could share them with your bros without losing your spot in line at beer releases.

    I read a scholarly article about it...

    It would be nice to see that trend come back.

    ....and translating it into the lingo du jour as you did is art, or a gift, or something fancy like that. :slight_smile:

    According to Pamela Sambrook’s “Country House Brewing in England, 1500-1900” these were called “jetts” in the English brewing tradition. On English country estates they had giant brew houses that mostly worked by gravity and if you were lucky had a pump to get the wort back up to the “copper” (kettle) from the mash tun and if not you used jetts or buckets to ladle and carry it back up to the top.
