Rubbermaid Commercial Bus Tubs [Brew Day and Beyond]

Rubbermaid Commercial Products FG334900GRAY Standard Bus/Utility Box, 4.625 Gal, Gray

Rubbermaid Commercial Products White Bus/Utility Box 4.625 Gallons


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

  • Constructed of heavy-duty commercial-grade plastic
  • Rounded corners
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Reinforced handles and bottom
  • Measures 5″ x 20″ x 15″
  • Made of durable, commercial grade plastic, with reinforced handles, bottom and ribs for added strength
  • Rounded corners for easy cleaning

I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a 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.
