MacCourt Utility Tub, All Purpose, Series: AT2606, 9 gal Capacity, 26 in Length, 20 in Width, 6 in Height, Polyethylene, Black, For Mixing Mortar and Cement


I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer, they’re also a bit smaller compared to the tubs featured in this post at 7 1/8 Gallons vs 9 gallons] on brew day and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.
