Bus Tubs HomebrewI use similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are larger at 7 1/8 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.

Another potential use: ice down your favorite beverages for get-togethers.
