Growler Filling Tips and Tricks
Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers

Stanley Adventure Cooler, 30 Quart

30 quart stanley

Stanley Adventure Cooler, 30 quart, Green.  Insulated lid locks in cold.  Leak resistant lid gasket seals to to help insulate and keep liquids in place.  Leak-proof drain plug.  Accepts padlock.  Leak free construction, pro-grade,  Extra height accommodates 2 liter bottles and more.  Durable construction – can use the top as a table, step stool or a seat.

This is probably more of a cooler as a cooler vs a cooler-to-be-converted-to-a-mashtun sort of a cooler.  You could use this to keep your homebrew or favorite draft beer (and more) cold.

I have a smaller version of this cooler (16 quart) and it is sweet.  I got it because I wanted a rugged, high quality cooler and didn’t want to fork over an arm and a leg [See: Yeti Coolers].
