13 Gallon Food Safe Drums for Fermenters and Grain Storage

13 Gallon HDPE Food Safe Fermenter Grain Storage

13 gallon food safe containers via eBay. Drill a 1/2″ hole in the lid and add an airlock grommet and you’re up and going with a 13 gallon fermenter. You could also use this as a food safe 13 gallon grain storage container. At an estimated 5 lbs per gallon, these would hold approximately 65 lbs of grain. These are pre-used barrels. They were used to hold pharmeceuticals.

These are selling for $19 + $19 Shipping.  The seller will combine shipping for multiple items (contact the seller for actual USPS charges).  Or… if you live in or around Rancho Cucamonga, California you can arrange for local pickup.

Brewery Organization: Brother PTH100 Labeler – $9.99, Record Low

81SL-vPTP4L._SL1500_

Brother’s PTH100 Handheld Label Printer has recently sold for around $30.  3 month average is $23.65.  It’s down to $9.99.  That constitutes a record low Amazon price.

Label keg lines, kegs, manifolds, storage bins and more.

I’m fond of Brother labeling machines that have the ability to use their “Extra Strength Adhesive” labeling tape.  Those labels have extra strength adhesive that works well in harsh environments including moist places like kegerators.

Lots of TZe Tape styles are available.  I generally use the 1/2″ Black Print on White Tape – StandardExtra Strength.
