Gurin Wireless Dehumidifier for Kegerator Condensation… $12.95

DHMD-100 Renewable Wireless Humidifier by Gurin

This is similar in function to the Eva Dry E-500 – Hands on Review.  It contains desiccant material that absorbs moisture (in places like your kegerator).  The desiccant beads change colors as this takes place to let you know when the unit needs to be recharged.  Plugging in the unit activates the built in heater and drives off accumulated moisture.

Features:

  • Works in a 500 cubic feet area
  • No batteries or cords required
  • 100% renewable — works up to 10 years
  • Compact and silent
  • Spill and mess free, non toxic – child and pet safe

Reader Tip: 68+ lb Capacity Airtight Grain Storage… $23.99 + Reader Feedback

Thanks to HBF Reader Geoffrey for this tip!  There are 8 Ways to Connect with HBF

Iris Airtight Storage Container
 

67 Quart Airtight Storage Container from IRIS.  Wide opening for easy access.  Clear sides to see contents.  4 Casters for easily moving this around.

67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  10 Gallons holds about 50 lbs of grain so 67 quarts should hold about 82.75 lbs of grain.

The product description does say this holds up to 55 lbs of pet food.  My rule of thumb on pet food to grain conversion is based on the Vittles Vault II containers.  Those hold 40 lbs of pet food, but generally hold 50 lbs of grain.  That’s 1.25 lbs of grain per lb of pet food.  Using that conversion this should hold around 68.75 lbs of grain.

So… this either stores 82.75 lbs of grain or 68.75 lbs of grain.

Airtight lid, wide opening for easy access and on casters for easy transport.

Twitter Friend – connect with HBF on Twitter – Frank has one and says… “Perfect for grain storage. Great seal, sturdy.”

Update: Hands On – Spiegelau IPA Glasses

Here’s a Hands on Look at Spiegelau’s IPA glasses.  These glasses have a 19 ounce capacity, they are dishwasher safe and they are designed specifically for the enjoyment of IPA style beers.

Front of the boxSide of the box: “In collaboration with two of the leading IPA brewers in the United States, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head and Ken Grossman of Sierra Nevada, Spiegelau has created the new standard for IPA beer glassware. Achieved through a series of design and tasting workshops in which hundreds of possible designs were considered, the brewers ultimately and unanimously chose, by secret vote, one glass – ‘number 6’ – from a final lineup of eight custom-made prototypes. Designed to showcase the complex and alluring aromatic profiles of American “hop-forward” IPA beers, preserve a frothy head, enhance taste and mouthfeel, and present a comfortably wide opening for the drinker to savor each beer, Spiegelau’s latest design is the go-to vessel for enjoying IPA. Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada champion US hop farming. The breweries and donating their portion of the proceeds from this collaboration to benefit advances in hop research.”

Other side of the box: Durable, Lightweight, Brilliant with Max. Dishwasher Safety.

Spiegelau logo on the bottom of the glass.  When these first came out there was some discussion about where they laser etched nucleation point was at in these glasses.  I spoke with Spiegelau reps at NHC in 2014 and was told…. it’s the dot in the center of each glass.  This feature aid in slowly releases CO2 bubbles to enhance flavor and aroma.Looking great filled with More Beer’s Pliny the Elder

I’m really happy with these glasses.  They feel really well made and I like the way they look.  These have been my go to IPA glasses since receiving them.

Spiegelau IPA glasses reviewUpdate: 5/2015 – I have used these glasses for close to two years now.  The original two glasses that I purchased continue to look and function great.  They are typically my go-to glass for IPA beers.
