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.

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.

Why would you want a Vacuum Sealer for homebrewing?
Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops. You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys. Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

Thanks to Twitter Follower @zip100473 for these photos and feedback! Connect with HBF on Twitter - Here
 
Zip picked up a couple of these brand new kegs from RiteBrew.  He said they are “Beautiful” and tweeted me a few pictures.  
 
These Brand New, NSF Approved, 5 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs are selling for $84.99.  That’s the second lowest price we’ve seen on Homebrew Finds for a brand new ball lock keg.  Probably the lowest price ever on an NSF Approved Keg.  This is a great deal for a brand new keg.

Update – Reader Tip: DIY Hop Screen

 
 

Thanks to HBF Reader Scott for this tip and picture!

From Scott: After looking at more expensive versions I made some of my own with window screen as a test. They worked but tended to collapse and were difficult to clean.  Then I found this on Amazon.  After working a hole in it large enough to push the drain tube through bingo. It’s stiff, large enough around that it won’t clog easily and it comes apart for cleaning.  Here is a photo of it installed in a 10 gal. kettle…
