Gridmann 30″ Commercial Quality, NSF Certified Stainless Sink – essential brewing equipment? – $306.99 + free shipping

61xu57uoc3l-_sl1500_

Stainless Steel Commercial kitchen Prep & Utility Sink by Gridmann

More Info

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

  • NSF Certified
  • Large bowl size
  • Backsplash with faucet mounting holes
  • Adjustable-height feet
  • Includes basket strainer drain

 

For me, a quality utility sink is an important tool when homebrewing.  I’ve done interviews in the past and been asked… what is on your home brewing wish list.  I’ve felt a little silly answering…. a sink!  But, I’ve tried to clean homebrew gear in a regular kitchen sink and I don’t like it.  I much prefer a large, quality utility sink.  Having done it both ways, it makes a big difference come cleanup time.

I landed on pictured Gridmann sink because it is NSF certified, features stainless construction and has a large bowl size.  I really wanted a sturdy sink and wanted to get away from the plastic style utility sinks I had in the past.  In my experience those get scratched up over time.  Not a huge deal as I don’t… ferment in my sink, but still, I wanted to avoid another place for bacteria to hide.

My home-brewery or most of my home-brewery is in my basement.  It’s in a good sized utility room that was drastically underlit for home brewing purposes.  Same story for our last house.  Basement brew area, low light.

I’ve added several similar workshop lights [different model, specs and manufacturer] to the area and it’s made a huge difference.  Instead of what seemed like a cave, I’m now in a well lit space.  Those have made a big improvement, made it easier and more pleasant to work in my brewery.
