  • How about tray that has a 54 bottle (or so) capacity to making bottling day easier?
  • The pictured tray – Thunder Group ALSP1826 – is actually a full size sheet pan that’s about 18″ x 26″.  As you can see it easily hold 54 bottles.  Those are Anchor Steam bottles which are a little wider than standard beer bottles.  You can probably get a few more long neck style bottles on a full size sheet pan.  This is large enough to hold enough bottles for a full 5 gallon batch.  If you leave 1/2 gallon of trub behind, you would use right around 48 (12) ounce bottles.  These are estimates.
  • This tray catches those in-between bottle drips, helps keep your bottling area clean and generally speeds up bottling and cleanup.’
  • +BBQ…. When you’re done you have one tray to rinse off.  This also pulls double duty for me come time to BBQ.  I use this tray for preparing and transporting ribs.  Note that this is actually too large to fit in my standard size oven.  I like that because it means it stays out of the oven and I don’t have to worry about odds and ends getting baked on to it.
