I work for a packaging company and when our bubblewrap trucks come in they are lined on the bottom with expensive foil insulated wrap.I have collected about five 72' rolls and used some on my hlt and mlt.Stopping in Cap n Cork tomorrow to pick up some rhizomes and supplies,if you want some free wrap let me know.You guys have given some great advice so I want to pay it forward when I can.

I would like some, I was just thinking of making a pot cozy from that stuff at home depot. I'm in Royal Oak, no where near Rochester or Macomb at the moment, but I mountain bike out at Stony and Addison though, maybe we could work something out.

What, if I may ask, do you/could you specifically do with this insulation? I just started dinking with my keezer's thermister to get it runnin by this weekend and stumbled upon this. The insulation I used around the wooden collar is reflective foam board but its rather cumbersome and not ideal. Would this stuff improve my set up? I'm in East Lansing but plan on potentially traveling to Ann Arbor this weekend.

Should insulate a keezer pretty well.when we started selling it I dug into the info on it and at most you can expect a 5 degree temp loss.I insulated the walls and floor of my bathroom with it as a test and it is the most warm room in my house.

Found a good solution for everyone.Cap n Cork is having a event May 4th for national home brew day.I will be there and I also will pack my car full of bubble lined insulation.That day i will notify everyone of the shirt i will be wearing and you can just come up to me and ask for some wrap.That way it is a win for everyone.
