Cut up your Mr. Beer LBK and ...
 
BrewDemon is really getting aggressive! If you cut out a piece of your LBK and send it to them with a $15 check for shipping and handling they will send you one of their Conical Fermenters!

Very interesting marketing!

It says $13 for shipping and handling. I may have to look into this just because it looks cool

Not really. Everything else you buy off their site has $8 flat rate shipping. Not sure why they are charging $13 shipping for this trade offer.

My LBM has sentimental value. It would break my SWMBOs heart if I cut it up.

Looks like they are trying to "cut" Mr. Beer out of the market ;)

I have 2 LBKs (I use one to batch prime)/have additional small batches in the rotation, so I'd be mildly interested in trying this out. But from a functional standpoint it doesnt seem like it would make a huge difference overall. I could be wrong, but it seems like it may be more of the neat factor of having the conical shape. Nice thing about the LBK is that its footprint fits perfectly on the hump of my chest freezer fermentation chamber.

Hmmm. Got a dusty ol' Mr.Beer in the closet, doing nothing. Wonder if this is worth the thirteen bones for a small-batch/mead/yeast-washing vessel and how much effing around would be needed to fit this creature with a proper dump valve.

The hostile marketing is cute though.

I was thinking the samething. I have one of these already and I don't think it would take much. I think I might pick up a second one to try modifing it!
