I know mine works. picture is supposed to show up here
I bet the rope hauler does too.
I have started a tome describing how I made mine and plan to post it some time.

Reason: no pictures?

Yeah, I did a bit of research and milk crates were mentioned. Honestly, I haven't seen a real milk crate that was for sale or otherwise in over 10 years. They are like keggles, you aren't really supposed to have them, right? I like the ropes because I can move it without bending over to much.

I got inspired on this blog:http://stormdrane.blogspot.com/ He's got tons of sweet paracord knots and holders and stuff.

I think what I have is a 6.5 acid carboy, then again, it has the date 1976 on the bottom.

I've got this fermenter in my garage now with the top open, I'm going for a tap water lambic.

I poked around on flickr a little. Perhaps this helps?

Your rope carrier looks good. By the way, are those homegrown hops in the carboy? Do they stay out of the siphon when racking, or do you have a filter or something?

Looks like you've got some background in S&M to me....

Hey thanks Quaffer. That does look better than my attempt. Those are indeed homegrown hops picked a couple days earlier. No problem with them when racking. I didn't use anything special to filter them just the plastic job at the end of the racking cane. When they are whole they behave themselves nicely.

And, Um, no S&M background just some mountaineering.

One square knot, 12 bowlines, and two double fisherman knots, some cord and tubing for handles. Or you can check office supply stores for imitation milk crates.

You can also get 'real' milk crates at the container store.

So, I'm no boy scout but would like to make something similar. I'm familiar with square knots and bowlines but could anyone post a tutorial?

I've also thought of trying to clone the Brew Hauler using webbing. I know it's cheap to purchase at a fabric store, but I don't have a sewing machine.
