Heat Resistant Glove for Minding Yeast Starters – $7.49


Highly rated, Commercial Grade Heat Resistant Glove for $7.49.  Ships free with Prime or with a qualifying $35 order.

I use a similar type of glove (Ove Glove) when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.

These are also handy on brew day for handling hot (but not wet) ball valves and such.

Before someone brings this up: These are not waterproof. Along those lines, I wouldn’t suggest that you stick your hand in hot wort with one of these on. Or, without one of these on for that matter. I guess the take away here is… don’t stick your hand in hot wort. :)

72″ Folding Brew Day Work Table – $61.99 Shipped, Record Low

I use a very similar folding table as a brew day work table.  It may be identical as one of the reviews talks about it being manufactured by Samsonite.  It’s very handy for holding gear and supplies on brew day.  It breaks down flat and then folds in the center for easy storage and transport.

This has dropped to a new record low Amazon price of $61.19.  It ships for free.

12 Stainless Portion Cups – $6.65, Record Low, 55 Cents Per Cup


This highly rated pack of (12) 2 1/2 Ounce Stainless Steel Portion Cups has recently sold for as much as $10.86.  They have dropped to $6.65.  This figures to 55 cents per cup and is a record low Amazon price.  

These are very similar to the cups that I use in my Brew Day Box.  I use those to portion out hops and other boil additions.  Others use these type of cups for pH and gravity sample containers.  They are a great size and don’t take a lot of room since they nest together.  The ones I have cost about $1.50 each plus shipping.

      Rubbermaid Commercial Bus Tubs for Brew Day – $11.94, New Record Low

      The price on these Rubbermaid Commercial Products Bus Tubs has fallen to $11.94.  That’s a new record low Amazon price.  They ship free with Prime or with a qualifying $35 order.

      I use two of these on brew day and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.
