Organizing Your Home Brewery
When I first started home brewing, I sourced several large totes to store and organize my gear and supplies. I quickly learned that these consumed too much shelf space and were inefficient for the kind of things I wanted to organize. Beyond that, it was hard to find things. The sides were not clear and they were big enough that I had to do a lot of searching and digging around.
Next I moved to shoe box sized containers with clear walls. I found these to be much better for organizing my home brewery. They were small enough that I could use dozens of them, labeling each for easy identification. They stacked and the lids were easy to get on and off. I still keep a few larger totes for larger items, but much of my homebrew gear is in shoe box sized containers.
Here’s what I look for in these sorts of containers…
- Clear – I want to be able to see in the container without opening it up.
- 5 to 6.5 quarts or so
- Easy snap on lids – I want lids to go on and come off easily. For this application, I’m not looking for airtight
- Stacking. I want these to stack to save space.
- Nesting. When not in use I want to be able to nest these to save space.
