No Chill cubes - what do people use?

Post by clarets7 » Thu Aug 29, 2019 11:55 am

I've been reading the 'Choosing Hops" thread which went off topic a bit into how to get more hop flavour with no chill cubes, interesting. I have an immersion chiller but dread using all that water, so I'm thinking about no chill again and trying that method out. However, I only brew 19/20L at a time, and also my setup means I don't have to move a 20L bucket full of wort. Are there any 10L cubes that people use? I'd rather not be shifting even 20L around anymore...

So nothing special then, just ordinary containers like this:-

I use 25L ones similar to these for water as I can get them for free from work, but they are to big for what I want. If those are ok I'll get a couple - does it matter about the colour, I quite like the yellow!

From the Yorkshire Water website~

Charges explained for customers with a meter
Water - Yorkshire (excluding York waterworks)
Standing charge per year £24.07
Volumetric charge per cubic metre used 134.80p:

That's 1000 litres.

I don't worry about it especially as I use the water for cleaning anyway.

25L HDPE tubs of any description are fine.
Murphys are about to stop charging deposits so we’re about to have a surplus of these.
Anyone near south brum wants some in a couple months give me a shout!
