u/farptr · 19 pointsr/whatisthisthing

It is an unblown plastic soda bottle preform. They're sold as water tight small containers so this could have been used for anything.

u/jake_kulp · 8 pointsr/whatisthisthing

Definitely looks like a geocache made from a soda bottle preform. would explain the 'fish eye lens' and the soda bottle style cap.

u/MachinatioVitae · 7 pointsr/Survival

Hey, thanks! Yes, that's the one I was thinking of. I just couldn't find it. Idk about better though. They're different for sure, but they're both made from bottle preforms, so the tube strength should be the same.

The pocket reel comes with:

  • 1 pocket reel
  • 4 fishing hooks
  • 4 removable sinkers
  • 2 metal spinner lures
  • 3/4" bobber
  • knot guide with directions
  • 45' spool of fishing line

    The one I linked comes with:

  • 1 Heavy duty plastic tube with screw top lid.
  • 24’ of 20# monfilament fishing line
  • 3 #2 Eagle Claw Hooks
  • 3 #4 Eagle Claw Hooks
  • 4 #3 Split Shot Lead Sinkers
  • 4 #7 Split Shot Lead Sinkers
  • 2 Slip Bobbers
  • 2 Attached Bobbers
  • 2 Various colored Jigs

    So, with the pocket reel, you get 4 hooks instead of 6, 1 bobber instead of 2, 4 sinkers instead of 8, metal spinners instead of jigs, but almost twice as much line and a "knot guide".

    Seems like about a wash to me. I should note that I don't have a horse in this race, I've never used either and am not affiliated with either shop. The kit I posted was one I found a month or so ago while looking for the one you posted.

    Personally, I went with neither and just bought some bottle preforms for about a buck a piece, filled a couple with the fishing gear I already had and used the rest for other camping gear: spices/oil for cooking, match case, pill bottles, tinder case, etc.
u/Pac_management · 7 pointsr/Homebrewing

They are actually made for soda bottle production. You can usually find big packs for cheap.

u/neuromonkey · 6 pointsr/geocaching

They are soda bottle preforms (or "baby soda bottles,) which are uninflated 2 liter soda bottles. Available here and on Amazon, and other places.

I must say that posting a "these just arrived in the mail" without providing a source is a little less helpful that it might be. OP? Your source?

Edit

They are commonly called test tubes, and used as such in an amateur setting. They are also known as this other thing though. The original intended purpose.

u/Davec433 · 5 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use Soda Preforms and freeze by filling half the container with yeast and topping off with a 50/50 solution of starter beer and glycerin.

I then put in an insulated bag with an ice pack to protect from freeze/thaw cycles.


The only thing I’d change would be to MAYBE use 1.5 ounce glass jars. Which you could keep longer and straight up boil to sanitize.

Bottle preforms are great small tubes for keeping things dry

https://www.amazon.com/Soda-Bottle-Preforms-Caps-30/dp/B008MB1QNY

For a while you could buy redbull shots. They were a great small container as well

edit:correcting formatting.
Edit 2: always put rolls of tape in a baggy. When theyre hot they can ooze adhesive and make your kit a mess

u/graaaypes · 4 pointsr/Homebrewing

Personally, i bought some soda bottle preforms (https://www.amazon.com/Soda-Bottle-Preforms-Caps-30/dp/B008MB1QNY) and overbuild starters, save a vial or two, and use that to rebuild starters. Havent bought yeast in a hot minute.

u/philthebrewer · 4 pointsr/Homebrewing

is this a shitpost? or do you just really like soda blanks?

I'm all for whatever reduces WL's cost but doesn't harm me.

u/LegalizeGayPot · 4 pointsr/vaporents

If you don't have a vape yet, get an Arizer, you won't regret it.

As far as containers go, check out bottle preforms. I bough a 100pk of these years ago and still have half

https://www.amazon.com/Soda-Bottle-Preforms-Caps-30/dp/B008MB1QNY

u/Reinheitsgebot43 · 4 pointsr/Homebrewing

If you’re going to do that you might as well freeze it in soda preforms (take up less space) and slowly create a yeast bank.

u/d34thw41k3r · 3 pointsr/trees

For any fam that wants this, Amazon's gotchu!

EDIT: They're actually a bit cheaper at Educational Innovations, its the second link when searching for where to buy unformed soda bottle.

u/vinpaysdoc · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

Soda Bottle Test Tubes is what I use. Mason jars would take up way too much space in my fridge.

u/dev_c0t0d0s0 · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

This is going to sound crazy, but hear me out.

These things are insanely strong and I've gotten one to hold over 200psi. And if you lose a cap you can get a replacement at any gas station.

u/bplipschitz · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use either mason jars (grabbing total yeast cake from fermenter) or bottle preforms (remnants of starter).

u/Whittigo · 3 pointsr/Homebrewing

It won't be impossible, it will just mean using a different container. I've been holding onto a ton of the tubes for a while for saving yeast. Also:

if you need more and want to stick with vials.

u/Stinky_Fartface · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I do a similar thing, but these are the tubes I use. I bought two sets of them several years ago and they still work great. I replace the caps every so often. For the rack, I just keep them in six pack holders and put them in the keezer. I fill the unused vials with StarSan solution and store them that way.

I'd also like to add that, after I have racked a new beer into the fermentor, I pour the leftover trub into a mason jar, and then let it sit in the fridge for a day. Usually the trub separates to the bottom leaving a fair bit of usable wort. I give it another quick boil just to make sure its sterile and then make a small starter of something. After pouring off much of the beer, I can usually get about 10 vials of slurry.

u/esseffgee · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Oh wow, I'll have to give these a go. I've been using a few of the Nalgene Travel Bottle Kit bottles for olive oil, hot sauce, etc, and soda bottle pre-forms for batteries and some other stuff. But they're too big for most things like seasoning/spices, and not big enough for stuff like pancake mix.

u/Elk_Man · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Assuming your pints are partially filled with spent wort, you can siphon that off and just fill old White Labs tubes with the yeast. If you don't have any old tubes kicking around you can just grab some of these

u/jamesvreeland · 2 pointsr/Goruck

Are you looking for just the pouch or a complete kit? Bumps and bruises or blowout kit?

I don't run it on the outside of my bag, but my EDC medical setup is a CAT, Israeli bandage, trauma shears, and some everyday meds (IB, benadryl, etc) in a crush-proof tube shoved into an M16 magazine pouch.

u/rainmanak44 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Have you considered bottle blanks? Pretty cheap option and just like what White labs used for years. Bottle Blanks

u/JustPandering · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I built this for about $20 (not including the erlenmeyer and the stir bar).

I got the cigar box a while back at a second hand store.

Here's the USB powered PC fan I used:
http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Mobile-Fan-External-Cooling/dp/B00080G0BK/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1381376532&sr=8-2&keywords=usb+pc+fan

I chose a usb fan so that I could power it with an android usb phone charger and not screw around with splicing wires.

Here's the magnets I used (just needed one though):
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B1M37MY/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i02?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Aside from that it just took a few odd nuts, washers, and a bit of superglue. I had to bore the hole in top of the cigar box because the box turned out to be a bit too thick (sorry Pepin Garcia!) to get enough attraction between the magnet and the stir bar. I think I might have had better luck with stronger magnets or a different stir bar but oh well.

As someone suggested I first glued a washer to the fan so that I could move the magnet around a but to find the sweet spot where it didn't shake too bad then I glued the washer in place.

I used the long bolts/nuts that came with the fan to attach it to the lid (you can see the bolts in the first picture). Between the top of the fan and the lid I had to add washers to keep the fan from rubbing on the cigar box.

That's pretty much it. The fan has a variable speed control but I get a small vortex on the lowest setting, and higher settings throws the bar off the magnet.

Now I just need to wait for my soda preforms to show up so I can start saving a bit more yeast after I use the stir plate!

I use a small Coca Cola bottle they used to sell. 150ml I think. I also know you can buy a 2L bottle in it's pre-inflated state. Soda Bottle Preform

u/mks113 · 2 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

2 litre soda bottles actually are shipped as preforms that can be expanded before they are filled. I guess heating them up without pressure returns them towards their original size?

u/sufferingcubsfan · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

I overbuild my starters by a half liter. I chill for at least a day prior to pitching, then decant before I pitch. I save my White Labs vials (and have a set of soda bottle blanks) which I sanitize and use for storing yeast.

Yes, I have a collection. My wife does not love this fact.

I've heard somewhere somebody suggested soda bottle preforms. I've no experience with them but seems a good idea for making slants.

Something similar to the vials are [soda bottle preforms.] (https://www.amazon.com/Soda-Bottle-Preforms-Caps-30/dp/B008MB1QNY) I heard about them recently, but can't remember the exact context. Might be heavier than necessary.

u/andersonmatt1125 · 1 pointr/Homebrewing

Here's a link to those tubes. They're pretty common, you might be able to find a better price than that.

They're food-grade (obviously) so they supposedly work well. Haven't used them myself though. These should only be used for starters though. After storage you're likely not going to have enough viability in a single vial for a healthy pitch.

u/glitterpumas · 1 pointr/IllegalLifeProTips

they're called soda bottle preforms and he keeps joints in there and instead of the caps he uses corks, keeps the smell locked in

I run a homebrew store and absolutely hate the damn vials. Bags are much easier to keep track of, arrange and take less space.

u/savage4618 · 1 pointr/geocaching

THESE are cheaper and more durable/waterproof. A little bit of spray paint or camo tape and it blends in just as well as the other mentioned containers. In my area we have a lot of waterways and these make GREAT paddle caches.
