Putting Together a “Brew Day Box”

Part of Our Homebrew Tips and Tricks Series.  Check out the complete list – Homebrewing Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts! This is a Top Post! See: All Top Posts


Why a Brew Day Box?

云南快乐十分over the years i’ve homebrewed, i’ve utilized a number of storage and organization strategies.  some could be defined less as strategies and more as “piles”.  these strategies have ranged from, cardboard boxes, to big totes that i threw everything under the sun into to using smaller shoe box size containers and breaking everything out into categories.  the shoe box size organization method has worked well and other than a few large totes for bigger items, it’s what i’ve settled on.  at some point after going to that, i realized that when brew day rolled around, i had to collect items from a number of these containers.  i usually forgot something and had to look around, multiple times per brew day trying to find whatever i needed.  that evolved into putting together a container just for brew days.  i cleverly 🙂 call that my “brew day box”.  this container houses nearly all the small odds and ends that i use when brewing.  i’ve also tried to make sure those things don’t really need removed at other times.  for example i use a refractometer regularly, not just on brew day, so… i bought another refractometer.  everything that’s in my brew day box generally… stay in my brew day box.  this keeps everything in one place and i’m not wasting time trying to find stuff when i should be brewing.

I use two [Note: Mine are a different model, manufacturer and 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.  They’re also handy for catching drips from drying gear and general storage.
