Cereal Killer Adjustable 2 Roller Grain Mill – $89.99 Shipped! – Black Friday Sale

HBF Reader Feedback…

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.

Paul Says… “I have this mill and love it.”

Twitter Follower Dan Say “I have this mill.  I love it.”

Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop

IRIS USA, Inc. Airtight Pet Food Container Combo Kit

This combo package gets you two airtight containers (one 25 lb container and one 10 lb container).  You also get a scoop that could act nicely as a grain scoop.  The 25 lb container has casters for easily moving it around.  Both containers are airtight, BPA Free and made from FDA compliant material.

As to capacity…. This combo has appeared on HBF in the past. Here is some feedback we’ve received..

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: “Mine arrived yesterday and I managed to fit a 50lb sack of 2 row in them.”

Stainless, NSF Work Table – Reader Feedback and Photos!

I received a tip on this table from HBF Reader Jeff earlier today.  Come to find out, Jeff just purchased this exact table.  I asked him for some photos and thoughts about it.  He kindly obliged.  Thank you Jeff!

from Jeff: “I’ve been looking for some stainless steel tables for months now, but I was very leery about cheap non-sturdy tables. After receiving my Trinity work table today there is no question in my mind that it is 110% restaurant quality stainless worktable. I couldn’t ask for a more sturdy table. I could easily stand on this table (at 200lbs) and feel secure, however the instructions say not to. To my surprise, as I was putting the table together (super simple) I flipped table over I noticed fantastic reinforcements on the bottom. I’ve attached a picture of both!”

I have been eyeing stainless tables myself for quite some time.  After seeing the pictures and hearing Jeff’s feedback on the quality, I ordered one of these just prior to putting this post up.

Trinity EcoStorage 48″ wide, 35.5″ tall, 24″ Deep NSF Certified table.  All Stainless Steel Construction, adjustable shelves and adjustable feet levelers.

Use for a brew day or brewery area work table.  The built in shelf is handy for brew area storage and organization.  Also, the NSF certified stainless surface can be sanitized.
