Default You want to brew in WHAT!?!?!?

Ok, so another thread got me thinking we need one of these! The thread about which is better, glass of plastic carboys. Well, some of us got a bit off topic (Read WAY off topic) and it got me thinking, we need a place to post crazy idea and outlandish brewing ideas.

RULES:

This post if for FUN, no serious debates PLEASE. The point of this IS to get way out of hand with our ideas. For instance... "If I weld closed this trash truck... I could brew 876,895,432 gallons of beer in it" etc.

Trash talking? Sure, IN GOOD FUN.

I'll start.

Actually, every morning walking through the halls on the way to class we pass this HUGE super-OMG-way-over-the-top-built-to-go-to-the-bottom-of-the-challenger-deep rolling trash bin. It's made from some seriously reinforced HDPE. It's in the chem building and has a HDPE liner that is maybe .5" thick, an outter layer that is .5" thick of some unknown FRP, and then it is steal frame reinforced. The casters on it are maybe 10". I'm pretty sure this thing if for serious chem spills or something of the such. It has to be 600 gallons. Yes, I did the math and it came up to 598.25743 gallons... Yes I'm that kinda nerd!

Anyway, I told you that story to tell you this story. Every morning when we walk by it...I say DAMN that would hold a lot of beer!

My friends think I have a problem... lol.

I'll try to get a pic next week!

My 50 cubic foot wheel barrow would work. Best part is I wouldn't have to lift it to move my beer around!

I shoulda snagged a 110 gallon overpack drum from my last job before I left. Dang, I would've been 1/6 of the way to your chemical spill tote. Btw, those plastic cubes with a reinforced cage are called totes.

You'll need a few. One to mash in, one to boil in and one to ferment in!

I've been thinking about getting a septic tank installed in the back yard so I could lager 500g at a time year round.

You must be a little more self-aware, because I'm sitting here thinking, "this could work...if we had pictures we could get an idea for the temp control system." Maybe you should add a disclaimer to the thread: if you don't consider the proposals in this thread outlandish, seek help. Trained personnel are standing by on our live hotline 1-800...
