In my opinion the original ITC-308 was and is a game changer as far as homebrew temp controllers.  In comparison to available controllers available at the time the ITC-308 was released, it offered loads more features, including dual stage control, for a fraction of the price.  Game changer!  The addition of Wi-Fi control and monitoring to this great controller has made a great temp controller even better.  Check out our Hands on Review of the ITC-308.  That includes a section on the WiFi version.

64 oz Stainless Steel, Double Wall Growler by Grocery Art AND Neoprene Carrier – $27.99 + free shipping


64 oz stainless steel growler with extra wide mouth.  Double wall, vacuum insulation.  Made of 304 stainless steel.

More Info

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

  • This Growler Won’t Leak. The growler for beer comes with new-designed lid and gaskets, which provide improved anti-leakage protection. Due to improved lid and protective neoprene growler carrier, it is convenient for carrying everywhere you go.
  •  Double Walled Vacuum Insulation. No matter how you’ll use it: like growler or thermos water bottle – it designed to keep your favorite beverage cold for up to 36 hours or hot for up to 12 hours.
  • High Capacity. Beer growler 64oz (1/2 gallon) carries over 5 bottles of beer; if use it like water bottles (insulated) – this volume is enough for your daily hydration. WIDE MOUTH – for easy filling.
  • Safe Materials. We use high-quality materials: insulated growler or water bottle is made of grade #304 stainless steel – BPA free and absolutely safe: no leaching of chemicals into your drink.
  • Dark blue, soft-touch coating has a matte finish which makes growler bottle very effective; in couple with protective beer growler carrier (bottle pouch) it becomes the perfect gift for your loved ones.

 

Thoughts from HBF:

  • Double wall vacuum insulation is awesome.  It means contents are kept cold for a long time and reduces or eliminates sweating.
  • Stainless steel construction means this won’t break like glass.  It also makes it at home at the pool, beach or park
  • Includes soft neoprene insulation pouch with carrying strap.  That provides more insulation and additional protection for the growler.

Eva Dry E-500 Dehumidifier [Fix Kegerator Condensation] – $19.97, near best price + free prime ship

eva dry e500 kegerator condensation

Like many homebrewers and craft beer lovers, I use a chest freezer for chilling and serving kegs. Eva Dry Kegerator Condensation The big downside I’ve experienced is with that is… condensation.  Not just beads of water on the sides, I had pooling water in the bottom.  Not a good thing.  This varies by how often I’m in it and the weather, but the fact is, a chest freezer just isn’t designed to deal with condensation like a refrigerator is.

Enter the Eva-Dry E-500.  The Eva-Dry E-500 contains desiccant beads  that absorb moisture.  As this material absorbs moisture it also changes color.  Dark blue means it’s dry and pink means it’s becoming saturated.  The great thing about the Eva-Dry E-500 is that the desiccant material is reusable.  The unit contains a built in heater that drives off built up moisture.  When it becomes saturated, plug it in overnight and it’s ready to go again the next day.  I also use on of these in my fermentation chamber.
