"Other" uses for White Labs vials
 
I would be surprised if this has never been a topic for discussion, but I can't find anything...

While doing a lot of nothing, I stumbled on this webpage that explains how to make glowsticks...it made me think that White Labs vials would make pretty nice little receptacles for the glowing solution!

Here's the article: White Labs vials


What are some other uses for these things? (besides storing yeast in)

This. Is. Fricking. Brilliant.... I have a bunch of tubes collecting that I was considering saving for the White Labs exchange program, but I like the tap handle idea even better! You could use various color grains based on what's pouring on that tap...

Dont you only need the labels for the exchange program?

Yup.

Yeah, but how the heck do you get those labels off of there?? I've picked my poor little fingernails to death trying to remove them. :(

Steam. That's about the only way I've found that works.

Hey, those tap handles are great! They remind me of those "In case of emergency, break glass" things! :)

I found just soaking them loosens the paper that it peels off. Leaving the adhesive and a layer of paper behind which can be removed with a little WD-40 and a rag/papertowel.
