Hands On Review: Winco 4 Ounce Stainless Steel Portion Cups – for Brew Day Measuring & Samples

I’ve long been an advocate of using these sorts of portion cups for homebrew-related tasks.  I’ve kept small (2 to 2.5 ounce) portion cups in my Brew Day Box for years.  See: Hands On Review: Stainless Steel Portion Cups – for Brew Day Measuring & Samples for a review of those.

When I ran across these larger 4 ounce cups at a great price, I picked them up to use around my homebrewery.

These are generally intended for serving condiments and small amounts of food.  Considering their size, materials and efficient design, they are also well suited for use on brew day and around the brewery.

Short On Time? Time Saving Homebrew Tips!

time saving homebrew tips

Time can be a big factor when it comes to homebrewing.  Sure, it may be nice to spend sunrise until sunset carefully hand crafting a batch (or batches) of beer, but the practicalities of life can and do factor in when we’re deciding if we can brew a batch of beer.  For your stage of life, time may not be a factor.  If so, that’s awesome.  For others, time saving tips and techniques could help you brew more often.

With those thoughts in mind, I put the call out to the HBF community [8 Ways to Connect with HBF] to get some time saving tips and tricks.  A selection  of those along with some of my own thoughts follows.  Thanks to all who participated!  A full list of contributors is at the end of this post.

I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer and 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 these to portion out hop additions and other boil additions and for pH and gravity sample containers.  These are a great size and don’t take a lot of room since they nest together.
