Bus Tubs for Brew Day & Beyond – Save Time and Effort When You Homebrew

Bus Tubs HomebrewBus Tubs for Brew Day – A Rubbermaid Commercial Products Bus Tub/Utility Box with a Rubbermaid Commercial High Temp Pitcher and my Brew Day Whisk

I use two commercial bus tubs on brew day and beyond and find them invaluable.  They’re well made, versatile and help me save time and frustration.

  • I use these to cart around gear and ingredients – saving trips back and forth.
  • As brew day starts, I’ll keep a dry/clean bus tub and a wet/needs to be cleaned bus tub.  Having two helps me keep clean things clean.  That means less unnecessary cleaning.
  • If I’m using my pump, I’ll keep one below that.  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.
  • The ridges on the bottom make these a great place to drain and dry just cleaned gear.
  • When these are unused, they stack together to save space and offer a nice place to store brew day items.
  • Another potential use: ice down your favorite beverages for get-togethers.

I use the model linked below (and also the brown version of this same size) but other manufacturers and models may available.  Search Amazon for “Commercial Bus Tubs”

    I love the rubbermaid tubs too. There’s a half-size version available as well, which I like because it easy to carry when full, and its just wide enough to lay down longnecks side-by-side when soaking the labels off.
