What about a carboy dryer? It's the same idea, being able to invert the carboy so that it'll dry more easily.

a collapsible or folding 2-3 tier brew stand. made out of something light enough to carry or transport around but sturdy enough to hold a full keggle.

This is not an invention, but if someone could produce NEW 5 gallon ball-lock corny kegs that only cost about $30, that would be amazing! I think they could make a ton of money especially if they made them in the US.

Sorry for hijacking but didn't want to start a new thread for this. Does anyone know if a keg supplier would give better deals than 50 a keg if we did a group buy. Maybe not new kegs for 30 but if we buy enough used maybe they will drop price?

Yes there is a keg supplier down in florida that will ship pallets of used kegs for somewhere around that price. There is a thread on here about it. It would just be nice to not have to spend hours searching for a decent deal on kegs. I miss the days of $20 kegs. I should have bought more back then, if I only knew!

A few years ago, I would have wagered that we'd have seen plastic kegs introduced to the homebrew market with Corny fittings. Still might happen, but there have been some major issues with plastic kegs in commercial operations (kegs that have failed under pressure and killed at least one brewery worker). There's still enough old SS ones floating around where we're probably a few years away from anything coming to market, though.

7.5 gallon fermenting bucket (for 5 gallon batches) with a lid that has a hinged clear plastic flap resting on a silicon gasket.

1. No need for an airlock as it would be hard to have a blowout in a bucket that size unless using C4 instead of yeast.

2. Clear flap allows easy way to get a sample without opening the fermenter, lets CO2 escape and allows viewing to see if mushrooms are growing.

Easy to make and not expensive.

A conical fermenter that doesn't cost your first born child.
