Growler Filling Tips and Tricks

Place a clean growler in your kegerator with an ounce or two of Star San in the bottom.  After the growler is completely chilled, swish the Star San around to coat the inside and discard.  Now you have a sanitized, cold and wet growler that’s ready to fill.  The cold and wet part will help reduce foaming.  Turn down the pressure on your kegerator (maybe 3 or 4 PSI) and fill using a piece of tubing on your faucet that is long enough to reach the bottom of your growler.  Doing this will keep foaming to a minimum and decrease the introduction of oxygen.  Cap on foam and you’re done.  Related: Growler Fillers

Igloo Breeze 48 Quart Cooler from Wal-Mart for just $15.88.  In store pickup is free.  I don’t think this has a drain, so if you were going to do a mash tun conversion, you’d have to drill a hole or use something like a Brew Bag BIAB Bag –  in the correct size and dump the cooler to drain.  Or, you could use this as an actual cooler and take your homebrew on the go.

At the end of the trip, just open up the rustproof, leak-resistant drain. The tilted channel does all the work for you.

Reader Tip: 60 Quart Igloo Cube Cooler- $24.44 at Wal-Mart

Thanks to HBF Reader Ari for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Igloo 60-Quart Ice Cube Roller Cooler

Walmart has this Igloo 60 Quart Cube Cooler for just $24.44.  In store pickup is free.

Holds up to 90 cans, handle and wheels, handles molded in the sides, recessed drain.

This does have a drain.  I know some models of these types of coolers have recessed drains that make it difficult to install a bulkhead and false bottom or braid for use as a mash tun.  Maybe someone that has this specific model can chime in.  If anything this is a bargain for use as just a cooler.  It would also, probably, work for use with a 2.5 gallon keg.
