From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • REUSABLE: Unlike tape or string that can only be used once, Big Bands large rubber bands are reusable many times over, helping you reduce unnecessary waste and costs. When done with them, simply remove and store them for your next project.
  • SECURE TRASH LINERS: These oversized rubber bands are ideal for securing trash can liners so that you can put more into your garbage bin without worrying the bag will slip and cause a mess. Big Bands fit can sizes from 13 qt. to 32 gal. so they’re great for both home and commercial use.
  • FREEZER AND MICROWAVE SAFE: These big rubber bands are freezer and microwave safe, making them ideal for securing lids on food for storing leftovers, or for reheating them the next day. Keep chip or cracker bags tightly closed to seal in freshness.
  • ENDLESS USES: Big elastic bands are a versatile tool that you can use at home, in schools or the office for a variety of purposes to stay organized and tidy.
  • MADE IN THE USA: Big Bands heavy duty rubber bands are made in the USA so you know that you’re receiving a high quality product, fresh stock and fast service.

 

I use these to secure affix my Inkbird temp probe to my fermenter.  The 7″ x 1/8″ are large enough to work with my 7.9 and 5.3 gallon sized Speidel fermenters along with my 7 gallon SS Brewtech Brew Bucket.  I like these vs using something like duct tape because i don’t like the adhesive that’s left behind with tape.  I would guess these will work with many sizes and types of fermenters, but I can’t give you a conclusive list.

Reflectix BP24050 24-Inch-by-50-Foot Bubble Pack Insulation

Reflectix BP24050 24-Inch-by-50-Foot Bubble Pack Insulation


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Reflective insulation for use in a crawl space, attic, wall, metal buildings, and post and frame structures
  • Fiber free, environmentally safe, easy to install, and lightweight
  • Made up of seven layers, two outer layers of aluminum foil reflect most of the heat which hits them
  • Each layer of foil is bonded to a tough layer of polyethylene for strength
  • Two inner layers of bubble pack resist heat flow, while a center layer of polyethylene gives additional strength, 24″ x 50′ roll

Possible homebrew application: Use to insulate to your compatible mash tun or HLT to help maintain temperatures.  Cooler hack… I use this for my coolers (regular ole cooler as a cooler, not mash tun).  I cut a piece to fit the top of each cooler (fitting it to the cooler size as tightly as possible) and place on top of food or ice to provide an additional layer of insulation.
