IRIS/Remington Airtight Container [42 to 68 lb Capacity Grain Storage] – $17.26 + free prime ship + snag a deal on grain

Remington Airtight Container by IRIS USA

Rated for 25 lbs of pet food.  BPA free.  Airtight.  Clear sides so you can see what’s inside.  Casters to help you move it around.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Perfect for dry dog food, cat food, or bird seed; holds up to 45-lbs of dry pet food
  • Airtight seal keeps contents fresh and pests out
  • Built-in handle and stay-closed latch
  • Includes 4 free-wheeling casters for mobility and wide top access for easy scooping and cleaning
  • Dimensions: 13.6 W x 18.5 D x 20.75 H inches,
  • Made in USA

 

According to specs on the manufacturer’s website model SKU 296002 has a capacity of 55 quarts.  55 quarts = 13,75 gallons.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 68.75 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate based on an assumed size, actual storage capacity will vary.

Wort Heat Exchanger – Copper Counterflow Chiller – $49.99 at Brewer Dude

Wort Heat Exchanger - Copper Counterflow Chiller

Wort Heat Exchanger – Copper Counterflow Chiller from Brewer Dude

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

This copper counter flow chiller is probably one of the fastest ways to chill wort. This unit is similar in efficiency to the Chillout plate chiller, with the added benefit that it is easier to clean. Whereas a plate chiller has small crevasses to trap hop material, the counterflow chiller can be more effectively flushed out after use.

These units are 9″ in diameter and about 7″ high. The input and output are approximately 3/8″ outside diameter (10mm). These can be used with gravity, although a pump is recommended.


 

As of this posting, this is on sale for $49.99.  Shipping is a flat $7.99 on orders of $35 and over to addresses in the contiguous US.  Price, promotions and availability can change quickly.  Please note that product prices and availability are subject to change.

  • Extra Soft Silicone Rubber

HBF Commentary: I’m assuming that the softness of these help to better or more easily seal slightly leaky lids.  The description doesn’t explicitly say that, but I’m wondering if that’s the idea behind these.

Ade Advanced Optics Dual Scale Refractometer – $18.98 + free prime ship, best price

Ade Advanced Optics Beer Wort and Wine Refractometer Double Scale 1.000-1.120 S.G + Brix 0-32%

Ade Advanced Optics Beer Wort and Wine Refractometer Double Scale 1.000-1.120 S.G + Brix 0-32% by Ade Advanced Optics

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Ade Advanced Optics dual range refractometer measures the brix and specific gravity of your wort or wine
  • Measures brix: 0-32 percent and specific gravity: 1.000-1.120
  • Features atc (automatic temperature compensation) for accurate readings
  • Aircraft aluminum body, premium optical lens, rubber eye guard
  • A refractometer is easier and more accurate than a hydrometer for measuring sugars

Ade Advanced Optics 515-B beer wort and wine refractometer is for measuring the sugar content of beer, includes an automatic temperature compensation of 10 – 30 degree Celsius. It can replace your hydrometer for easier and more accurate measurements. Simply use the dropper to take a sample of wort and put it on the prism. Then hold the refractometer up to the light and look through the eyepiece. Due to the dual scale, there is no need to convert to specific gravity as the scale measures both Brix and SG.


 

For me, getting a refractometer was one of those upgrades that made a lot of difference.  With a refractometer you need a sample size of two drops.  I figured that this would pay for itself in beer savings alone.  I also had just broken my hydrometer and came to the realization that hydrometers are made of breakable glass that can break! 🙂

Refractometers can be used to measure gravity throughout the brewing process.  You can also estimate the alcohol content of your beer if you forget to take an OG with the use of a refractometer and a hydrometer.  Check out Sean Terrill’s excellent refractometer calculator.
