Gamma Seal Lids – $7.50

Gamma Seal Lids for Grain Storage

I store most of my grain in 5 or 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seal Lids.  For recipe kits, I’ll store the whole kit (minus yeast and hops) in it’s own bucket.  Gamma Lids come with two parts.  An outer ring that installs semi-permanently on the bucket and an inner portion that spins off for quick and easy access.  That also means no prying off hard to remove lids.  The whole thing is airtight.

A 5 gallon bucket can hold about 25 lbs.  So two 5 gallon buckets equals about a bag of grain.  Two size gallon buckets have an approximate capacity of 60 lbs.

Emergency Essentials – beprepared.com – has Gamma Seals marked down from $10 to $7.50.  Gamma Seals + 6 Gallon Buckets are also on sale.

Emergency Essentials has tiered flat rate shipping – up to $60 ships for $60, $60.01 to $120 ships for $9 and $120 + ships for $12.

$20 Off 4 FoodSaver Bags or Rolls + Save $40 on FoodSaver V2470

Discount FoodSaver Bags and Rolls

FoodSaver has a several deals going on in preparation for the holidays.

One deal is $20 off any four bags or rolls.  Pint Size are one of the best sizes, in my opinion, for breaking down lbs of hops.  Those are already marked down from $13.99 to $9.99.  Buy four and you get $20 off.  That equates to just over 50% off sale price or 64% off vs regular price.  Check it out – Here

Also FoodSaver’s model V2470 Vacuum Sealer System (V2470 + a Selection of Bags and Rolls) is marked down from $159.99 to $79.99.  No coupon or promo code is needed.

Why would you want a FoodSaver for homebrewing?
Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops.  You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys.  Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  You can also store specialty grains in vacuum bags or using the mason jar attachment.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

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.
