I just finished a gallon of rice wine vinegar that came in a cool glass jug. Which would be fun to reuse for something. But, I have no ideas.....

Help me out!

I would LOVE one of these! I'd use it for making sun tea, since I drink it by the quart...

I would fill it full of pennies...then put them in coin wraps and deposit them in the bank. Then start the whole process over again.

It's the perfect size for brewing your own kombucha.

That's so funny because I have spent the last couple of months looking everywhere for a glass, gallon jar! I would use it to brew kombucha or tea.

Sun tea, or else I would use it to hold lemonade in the summer.

I save bottles like that to make infusion vodka. Right now I have a big jug of blueberry vodka going right now. Everyone loves it and it makes great Christmas presents.

My dh uses them for storing his homebrew beer. I might have to borrow one for tea!

Send it to me I have a BiPap machine and have to use boiled water in it. I would love a glass jug to store it in in the fridge instead of using the nasty plastic one that I have.

fruit wine is super easy to make with just any kind of fruit, sugar, water, and regular baking yeast

Anyone want a specific recipe, let me know! I'm making pear wine right now

Just a little tip.... DD tried doing this and our credit union doesn't accept coins in wrappers anymore. They have a machine in the lobby and you just dump all your coins in it. It counts them and adds them to your account. No teller and no fees.

So, check with your financial institution first.

I'd use a gallon glass jug for lots of things!!!!! All food related....

Do something food-related. There's plenty of non-reusable for food plastic containers for stuff like storing coins. (Speaking of which, finally a use for that jug!)

I just spent a few months looking for one of those! Finally got some for free from a local restaurant. So glad.

We're going to use ours for storing grains, beans, etc and also for holding raw milk.

Kombucha is a great ideal for it....so probably that too when the time comes.

I need one of those to rack this cider that's fermenting in my closet right now. Where'd you find it? I don't even want the vinegar. Just the jug
