What is this?



Dad was cleaning out his bar and found it. It is from Apollo Brew Supply, which has a local store. None of us are homebrewers, so we think it is was probably given as a gift, but we have no idea what it is.

I have no clue. Hm. Does anything move? Looks like the rod and that bottom piece are 2 separate pieces. What's the weight distribution like? And what is that top ball, anything weird about it?

All I can see is stainless steel, so me not having experience with this contraption, it's hard to tell what it could be. The ball on top reminds me of a spray ball. Does it by chance spin? What does the underneath look like?

The ball on the bottom can slide freely. I thought it might be some type of weight?

Top ball can be unscrewed, but no idea what its function is.

What does the logo at the bottom say? It doesn't look like any piece of homebrew equipment I've seen before.

Also, is that some kind of o-ring at the top underneath the ball?

Part of a hand pump for a keg?

Fancy grape masher for homemade wine. Stainless steel so it isn't affected by the acid in the grapes. Homebrewing encompasses more than just pivo......

Can we get a blurrier picture? Beer drinkers often see things more clearly when in a slight haze.

That's really small to mash grapes, like one at a time. I've been brewing for 17 years and I don't have a clue. I would think it's part of some other piece of hardware.

Agreed on both counts. That is not a "grape masher". I asked about a possible o-ring because I don't think this is a standalone piece of equipment.

I think this is the right answer. It's the push rod from a beer engine.
