Uses for Ice Packs
  • The first and most obvious use for these… use them in your cooler to keep your homebrew, favorite craft beer and more cold.  I went to ice packs instead of ice after watching a segment on packing your cooler properly on “Good Eats”.  Thanks to Alton Brown I have been ice free since and haven’t looked back.
  • Traveling someplace to brew – put your yeast and hops in a small cooler with an ice pack.
  • I like to keep an ice pack next to yeast in my fridge to help temp stabilize it.
  • If you’re using an ice bath to help keep fermentation temperatures down, use ice packs instead of ice.  This method saves you needing to drain water from the bath like you would have if you had added more ice, adding more gel packs doesn’t add any additional water to the mix.  If you’re in the practice of purchasing bags of ice for this, this method will also save you money in the long run.
  • If you have warm ground water temps, set up your system with a pre-chiller and use ice packs to help chill down your ground water.
