Hands On: Rubbermaid Commercial Product 1 Gallon Bouncer Pitcher

Review Rubbermaid Commercial Products FG321800CLR 4-Quart Bouncer Measuring Cup

There are several equipment purchases that I look back on and say… I’m really glad I got that, it’s made a big difference.  Sturdy, Food Safe One Gallon pitchers fit that bill.  I went from a mish-mash of too small plastic pitchers, found around the house, that bent under the weight of wort, dripped and leached who knows what into my beer to two commercial quality 1 gallon pitchers.  What a difference.

I started out with pitchers similar to these those work well, but have a couple of drawbacks.  I still use those for some purposes.   A while back, May of 2013, I picked up Rubbermaid Commercial’s 4 Quart Bouncer Pitcher.  Here’s a look at that.

Here’s the Rubbermaid commercial pitchers quart markings.  Clear sides make it easy to see what you’re measuring.

Easy peel off label.  That’s a pet peeve of mine.  This actually comes off clean.Made in USA

Thick, heavy duty plastic.  This pitcher feels sturdy.  My assumption is that these are called Bouncers because you can bounce them off the floor.  Have not tried that on purpose yet, but I do plan to mistakenly drop this at some point.  :)Bus Tubs HomebrewThree of my favorite brew day things – commercial bus tub for carrying gear and ingredients and catching drips, Rubbermaid Commercial Pitcher and my Brew Day Whisk.    Taken while brewing Brain Eater Pale Ale,

High Temps.  This pitcher is designed with commercial kitchen use in mind.  It’s made for both hot and cold use -40 to 212 deg F.

Two Pitchers.  If you are vorlaufing/recirculating, you’re going to want two pitchers and even if you’re not two pitchers are handy.

What I use this pitcher for.  Vorlaufing/recirculating, collecting water, topping up water, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day, as a cleaning vessel for smaller items, mixing up PBW and Star San, general measuring.  I’m sure there’s more.

I can highly recommend this pitcher to you.  I’ve been using it on brew day and beyond for years.  It’s on a short list of my favorite upgrades.

1 Gallon Pitchers for Brew Day

Winware Aluminum Measure 4 Quart

1 Gallon Professional Quality Pitcher

4 Quart/1 Gallon Pitcher by Winco.  Professional quality.  Quart markings (each groove represents a quart).  Lip is designed to reduce spillage and dripping.

These sturdy pitchers hold a full gallon.  I have two similar pitchers and use them for vorlaufing/recirculating, topping up water, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day and more.

Tip: Aluminum does not play well with Star San.  Along those lines, I don’t recommend storing Star San in these pitchers.  Consider this high temp capable pitcher if you’re wanting to do that.
