Default Found a cheap but good White Labs yeast viles holder

I wanted to pass this along. I saw this when I was ordering some stuff for work. They sell preforms as test tubes for kids. They have a big test tube rack for them for $5. I bought one and it came in 3 days. It is very strong plastic that is not brittle.

It is going into my kegorator, where I keep my yeast, to hold my yeast.

I always wondered if someone would have one the right size. Cool! I'll have to save that one. Looks like it'd fit on the fridge door shelf pretty well.

Excellent find, THANK you for sharing!! ...rig a little pouch in the front for some dry yeast as well, and you're set! I get so tired of yeast vials and packets rolling around and getting stuck under my beers and etc.

EDIT: AGH!! Shipping is ten bucks!! nevermind.... I'll look for one in the stores, maybe toysRus sells them? ... actually, I think I'll build my own from old plastic model sprues or something...thanks for the idea!

Yep, I noticed that. But, I added it to the order that I had made for work so I owed work the cost plus $1 for increased shipping.

Ask your LHBS to save the foam inserts they get from White Labs- those work perfectly.
