Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops [See: 5 Recent Hop Finds].  I’ve also used mine for storing specialty grains, base grains and other beer ingredients.

1737

Brand new, 20 lb, aluminum CO2 tank.  Aluminum will not rust.  Tank is shipped empty.

Tip: Get a big CO2 tank.  At my supplier, it costs around $20 to swap out an empty 5 lb tank.  It costs around $25 to swap out an empty 20 lb tank.  It’s more than 3 times the cost to refill the smaller tank!  This will pay for itself quickly both in time and money.

Stanley Classic Vacuum Insulated Growler, 64 oz

Growler Filling Tips and Tricks

Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers
