6 Pint Polypropylene Lab Jars and Closures – $20.92, New Record Low

71EYeJGecoL._SL1500_

This 6 pack of polypropylene lab containers and lids has sold for up to $40.27 in the last month.  In that time it has averaged $36.06.  Several price drops have brought it down to a new record low Amazon price of $20.92.  That figures to $3.49 each.  These can be used up to autoclave temps.

Uses include: Yeast rehydration, yeast washing and slurry storage. Also an easy vessel for making and storing sanitized water.  I use similar containers to rehydrate yeast.  Check out Tip 1 on our Tips Page for more info on that.

packets_2up_left_600px

My deal is finding things.  In an attempt to find things :)… I stumbled across a new set of offerings on Ritebrew’s website.  Omega Yeast Lab’s Line of Homebrew Strains.  The entire company was news to me.  Doing some digging it seems Omega includes 150 Billion Cells per pack and they have some pretty cool sounding strains, including Sasionsonstein’s Monster and OYL-052 DIPA Ale – “isolated from a famous double IPA brewed in Vermont”… I take that to mean… Heady Topper.

EDIT: The DIPA Strain went out of stock not too long after this post went up.  I notice as of this edit (9/10/14 8 PM Central) that it’s back in stock again.

Ends Soon: StirStarter Stir Plate – $42 Shipped

I’ve used the StirStarter Stir Plate for years.  I ordered mine back in June of… 2009.  It’s worked very well for me.  The constant motion of a stir plate integrates oxygen, puts yeast in constant contact with nutrients, relieves built up CO2 and generally helps yeast to grow more rapidly.  That also means smaller starters.

Nikobrew has these in stock for $42 and they ship for free.  That’s the best delivered price that I’m know of.  I got word from Niko that a price increase is imminent his costs have increased on these and that will soon be reflected in the purchase price.
