Klean Kanteen Vacuum Insulated Growler… $31.93 Shipped!

Klean Kanteen 64-Ounce Insulated Growler With Swinglok Cap

Klean Kanteen 64-Ounce Insulated Growler With Swinglok Cap by Klean Kanteen

64 Ounce Stainless Steel Growler with large (1.75″) opening.  Flip top lid.  Vacuum insulation means that your beer will stay cold for a long time.  Since it’s made from Stainless Steel, there’s no worrying about broken glass.  That makes it great for the park, beach or pool.

I have the Dark Amber version of this growler and it is… beautiful.  It’s really well made and it just looks great.

2/9/16 3 PM Central: This highly rated growler is down to just $31.93.  Shipping is also free.  That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found.  This has recently sold for as much as $59.95.  For comparison… check out the price on the dark amber version.  Another point of comparison… the smaller 32 ounce version is also selling for more than the 64 ounce size.  This is a great deal on a great growler.  Prices can change quickly.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Klean Kanteen Brushed Stainless Classic Vacuum Insulated Growler Storage with Swing Lok Cap, 64-Ounce

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

About: “WLP675 Malolactic Bacteria: Malolactic Fermentation is the conversion of malic acid to lactic acid by bacteria from the lactic acid bacteria family. Lactic acid is less acidic than malic acid which in turn decreases acidity and helps to soften and/or round out some of the flavors in wine. These liquid cultures are available in vials to inoculate 6 gallons or 1 liter sizes to inoculate 60 gallons.”
