I was given a bunch of water jugs for a water cooler. Any ideas on what to use them for?
You can store water in them.
They make great fermenters!
Me and OldCootHillbilly think alike on this one although I would say they only make "good" fermenters because they are permeable to some degree:cheers:
Store dry goods, rice, beans and such. Make sure can seal the opening well.
Well its already been stated, but the obvious use is to, well, store water. I keep them around empty because I dont see a way to actually seal them except with wax, but they should come in handy when needed. I got some with the built in handle, cause if it goes down, I'll have to hump water from the nearby (1/4 mi) lake.
Please explain? I got a gallon glass jug that Ive used for fermenting veggies and experimenting with someones (I think Davarm?) bread beer, but I dont think I'd use plastic. What are yall fermenting in em?
Well I was talking about beer/wine/mead Plastic is fine for the primary fermentation, though I much prefer glass carboys or wood barrels, most homebrewers use a pail as a primary fermenter these days.
No they are useless pm me so i can give you my address and I will dispose of them in a ecologically safe manner
so that the earth will be clean and beautiful where you live.
For a very small fee.
This is a limited time offer.
Not availible in any store
Use them for water
If it were me, I would fill the jugs with water and cap them.
I recently scored a free water cooler from craigslist and now would like to score some 5 gallon jugs for water. I have one that my daughter used for coins that I recently cleaned out and filled. I have saran wrap and a rubber band for a temporary. Heavy to move around at 40 pounds, but the cooler (not necessarily used as a cooler, more as a dispenser) will make a nice way to access the 5 gallon jugs. So far I haven't found a decent deal on the jugs, but craigslist has been good to me many times, so I will keep trolling it. I'll keep watching. I am also glad for the link for the caps. Thank you readytogo!
Thanks. To ferment or not??. Hmmmm
Weedy garden if you lived close I would be more than glad to give you some.
The used ones I get for free are never clean enough inside for me to trust them for potable water.
So, I take them back to the store and exchange them for new, filled, and sealed bottles - and they stay sealed.
I'd be happy to take them off your hands...
Thank you! I thought of that, but I have no trips planned going east to be able to pick them up. I am wondering if someone might be heading west between you and me and could bring me some! You never know! I literally live just 2 miles off of I-70 if anyone would possibly be making a westward trip from the east in the future and would be willing to bring some.
I would only use plastic in an emergency as it has a tendency to affect the taste.
I get that from HDPE containers, but not from PET
Hmmm, I live close.
Take about 8 of them, seal the top, strap a piece of plywood to the top and cruise down the Allegheny, Mon or Ohio. You're a month late for the Regatta.
