Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop – $19.54

This combination of two food safe, airtight storage containers along with a scoop is selling for $22.99.  That’s a great deal and just $1.73 off the record low Amazon price of $21.26.  If you look on the product page, you’ll notice a “Clip Coupon” button.  Click that and the price drops 15% to $19.54, below the record low.  Ships free with Prime or a qualifying $35 order.  This price and coupon applies to some, but not all of the available colors.  Click on each color to see what the price is and see if the coupon applies to that offering

As to capacity…. This combo has appeared on HBF in the past. Here is some feedback we’ve received.. “Mine arrived yesterday and I managed to fit a 50lb sack of 2 row in them.”

from HBF Reader Adam: I was able to successfully fit a 50lb Briess bag of Rye into one set of these. I was not able to fit a 55lb bag of 2-row into a set. I may take a few more minutes to shake it to settle the grain and try again, but it is going to be very close. One additional note on these, when you pick these containers up to move around, the lock doubles as a handle, as such, it is very easy to unlock it and potentially spill the grain.

Anonymous… Bought this a few weeks ago. Love it. Much better than a corona mill.

Google+ Friend Kieran… Just used our Cereal Killer for the first time last month on a clone brew recipe. This thing is lights-out! We did not spring for the optional handle, and instead used a power drill.

Google+ Friend Chris… Used mine tonight, great deal, great mill.

24″ Stainless Brewer’s Whisk – Extract, All Grain and Whirlpooling – $12.50 Shipped

This is a great piece of equipment.  Check out my hands on review Here

This whisk is great for: 1.  Stirring in extract.  It easily breaks up clumps, 2.  Stirring the mash and 3.  Starting a whirlpool.  If you’re a homebrewer, I think you should consider owning one of these babies.

HBF Reader Feedback…

Jared: After following your site for quite some time now, and purchasing many items because you let me know about them, I just received the 24″ whisk. I can’t believe how awesome this thing is just by pulling it out of the shipping package! I am so excited about this I might just have to brew this weekend even though I don’t really have the time. Not only would this piece be awesome for the mash, but dissolving LME and DME and keep it off of the bottom. What a great piece of equipment and thanks for sharing it!

Aaron: I have this exact same French Whip and love it, works way better than the old mash paddle I used before. It really cuts through the grain and helps ensure no dough balls etc. Definitely recommend this above any other stirring tools I’ve used!
