Bus Tubs HomebrewBus Tubs for Brew Day – A bus tub with a Rubbermaid Commercial High Temp Pitcher and my Brew Day Whisk

7.135 Gallon Bus/Utility Box by Rubbermaid Commercial Products

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Constructed of commercial-grade plastic
  • Rounded corners for easy cleaning
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Reinforced handles for secure lifting
  • Measures 21-1/2″ x 17-1/8″ x 7″
  • Made of durable, commercial grade plastic, with reinforced handles, bottom and ribs for added strength

I use two of these on brew day and I find them invaluable.  I use them to cart around brew gear and ingredients – saving trips back and forth and time.

As brew day starts, I’ll keep a dry/clean bus tub and a wet/needs to be cleaned bus tub.  Having two helps me keep clean things clean.  That means less unnecessary cleaning.

If I’m using my pump, I’ll keep one below that.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.
