(20) 9″ by 6″ Scouring Pads.  The description says these are ideal for…
“glass, stainless steel, porcelain, chrome, copper and ceramic surfaces”..

At 9″ by 6″ you could probably cut these in half and still have a good size scrubby.

Use for cleanup on brew day and beyond

7/23/15 2:37 PM Central: These highly rated pads are selling for just $7.20.  That figures to just 36 cents each or, 18 cents each if you cut them in half.  This is a great deal.  Shipping is free with Prime or a qualifying $35 order.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

1 Gallon Pitchers for Brew Day

Winware Aluminum Measure 4 Quart

1 Gallon Professional Quality Pitcher

4 Quart/1 Gallon Pitcher by Winco.  Professional quality.  Quart markings (each groove represents a quart).  Lip is designed to reduce spillage and dripping.

These sturdy pitchers hold a full gallon.  I have two similar pitchers and use them for vorlaufing/recirculating, topping up water, collecting wort from my mash tun, holding utensils on brew day and more.

Tip: Aluminum does not play well with Star San.  Along those lines, I don’t recommend storing Star San in these pitchers.  Consider this high temp capable pitcher if you’re wanting to do that.

Heat Resistant Glove for Minding Yeast Starters

G & F 1689L Heat Resistant Glove Commercial Grade, Large

Heat Resistant Commercial Grade Glove

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. :)
