$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.

Brewery Organization: Brother PTH100 Labeler

81SL-vPTP4L._SL1500_

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.
