Winco 24″ Stainless Steel Whisk [Extract and All Grain Brewers] – $10.80 + free prime ship

Winco FN-24 Stainless Steel French Whip, 24-Inch, 1,

Winco 24″ Stainless Steel French Whip

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

  • Stainless steel construction
  • Measures 24″ in length
  • Ideal for mixing eggs, sauces and batter

This looks similar to my 24″ Stainless Whisk.  That whisk is an easy upgrade that I generally recommend for all but small batch only brewers.  Check out my Hands on Review of that great tool.

Use this on brew day in your mash tun and brew kettle.  In the mash tun… a whisk like this makes quick work of breaking up up doughballs.  In the brew kettle… Use to incorporate extract, stir the brew kettle or start a kettle whirlpool.

Bus tables more efficiently with the Carlisle N4401003 bus/utility box. The reinforced rims minimize bending, bowing and breaking protecting your tableware reducing labor costs by allowing more to be safely carried in one trip. The molded in comfort curve handles ensure a comfortable grip for secure transporting. Integrated stacking lugs allow for efficient, Jam-Free storage when not in use. Unique contour lid design (sold separately) allows for easy box-on-box stacking. This box is compatible with the Carlisle N44012 universal bus box lid.

I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer and have different specs] 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.

I use a similar type of glove (Ove Glove) when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.

These type of gloves are also handy on brew day for handling warm, (but not wet) ball valves and such.

These are not waterproof.  Safety Note: Always use caution when handling hot items or ingredients and always read and follow manufacturer directions.
