My crazy idea.

I was just goofing around when i came up with this idea. what if you made a watertight picture frame, with a tap and airlock. you'd even be able to see all the yeast working. in my picture I didn't label this, but there will be hidden head-space at the top behind the frame. same at the bottom for the yeast cake. this is more drinkable wall art than a practicable fermenter.

Like an aquarium built into the wall but without the shame and guilt of consuming the inhabitants later on!!!

Shame and guilt? The only feeling I get is feeling full.

"You know you are addicted to brewing when...."

You make a "fermentation wall" in your living room?

Very creative. Show us pics of progress!

What sort of volume? Would be awesome made out of some oak. Don't worry about an airlock, just open ferment. And definatly attach a bar tap to is so when it slows down you can drink you art!

Subbed. If you build it, we will comment.

what about light exposure?

Wait...I just realized this has been done before.

love the sea monkey thing. I'm not too worried about light exposure. I'm fine with cloudy cider. Matt- my design already has a tap on the side just above were the yeast cake would approximately settle. also, probably about 40 inches tall and 30 sideways and an inch thick. not sure how that math would add up. also, this would be strictly cider because racking to secondary would be difficult.

I hope this gets built.
