Default Brewing uses for a bigass graduated cylinder.

My lovely wife just bought me a very large graduated cylinder because she thought I might be able to use it for my brewing. It is 2000 ml and it appears to be standard glass, (she only paid $14 for it) but for the life of me, I cannot think of any practical uses for it. Ideas anyone???

You could use it for small starters. Boil your wort in a small pot, chill it and use your cylinder for the starter. Make sure you sterilize the cylinder first. Aerate the starter once pitched with a stone/hepa filter/aquarium pump in lieu of a stirplate.

This might be a little too obvious... but you could use it to measure liquids. I also have a 2000 mL graduated cylinder and I use it all the time to measure liquid volumes.

Ditto for starters. 2000ml flasks seem to be the norm for that. Plenty volume for a 5G batch of Ale. Not so much a lager.
