Great Deal: Irwin 8 Piece Tool Set – $58.99 Shipped, New Record Low

61cdo+V9tML._SL1500_

I don’t often run just straight up tools on HBF, but this one seems to be a stellar deal and I have all of these tools (type, not exact brand and model) standing by in my brew area.  I suppose that makes this brewing related.

Amazon’s Gold Box deal of the day dropped the price on this Irwin 8 piece plier set by $28.34 from $87.33 to $58.99.  That’s a new record low Amazon price.  They also ship for free.

Great Deal: 35 lb Digital Grain Scale – $19.16

81PWAGgQ4CL._SL1500_

The last time this highly rated digital scale appeared on HBF it was selling for $21.26.  At the time, that was a new record low Amazon price.  As of this posting, it’s selling for $19.16.  That’s just 6 cents off the current record low.  That’s a great deal for a great scale.  It ships free with Prime or a qualifying $35 order.

I own this scale and I can tell you that it makes for a nice grain scale.  A 5 gallon bucket fits on the platform and you can still see the readout.

The manufacturer says that the weighing platform on this scale is 24% larger than most scales.

It has a backlit display (good), auto hold or manual hold (good – I don’t like the auto hold feature for weighing grain), tare feature (required in my book) and AC Adapter included (hey.. that’s good too!).  This scale can also be calibrated using any known weight.  That’s a pretty great feature as some calibration procedures require odd or oversized calibration weights.  For example one digital scale I have requires a…. 30 lbs calibration weight.

From HBF Reader Mike: Ordered one of these a few days ago. Just received it. Initial impression of the scale is that it is good quality with nice features. Weight measurement out of the box was spot on. I compared 1 oz of hops against another scale I own with the new scale.

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.

HBF Reader Feedback:  from Dave… I just got mine last night, and as far as I can tell it looks just about perfect. There are a few minor scuff marks on the lid and sides of the kettle, but aside from that it looks fantastic.

I used The Brew Bag when I recently brewed the all grain version of 1 Hr IPA from Great Fermentations.  Very impressed with the features and quality.  Check out my First Looks Post.
