After mentioning my use of similar portion cups in my Brew Day Box, I received a Reader Tip pointing me to this pack of 12 stainless steel portion cups. So… I picked a set up to give you a closer look at them.
You can use these to portion out hop additions and other boil additions and for pH and gravity sample containers. These are a great size and don’t take a lot of room since they nest together.
The stated capacity on these cups is 2 1/2 ounces. I used my Top Find – Fast Weigh MS-500-BLK Gram Scale – review to weigh the container and subtract that weight using the tare feature. Then I filled the container to the brim with water. The weight of that water came out to 60.3 grams. That translates to 2.039 ounces. From what I can gather, the size on these is overstated by a little bit in the product description. They are still a very usable size.
These reusable cups are handy for portioning out hops [See: 5 Recent Hop Finds] and other ingredients and boil additions on brew day. You can also collect refractometer and pH samples. Since these stack they are space efficient and easy to store.
