Found this by the dumpster. Stainless dryer drum.

A little less than 2 feet wide and deep
The plastic fins will snap out.

Its got a 15/16 shaft with a 3/4" Keyed flat on the back.
The arm on the back will come off with a few screws as well.

Any ideas? Malting drum? Big giant coffee roaster? Lemon zester.

Cut out the perforated parts in the proper shape and use for a false bottom.

Lemon zester FTW! You can zest a ****load of lemons at once with that thing.

Wow... I have been thinking about making a contraption that will spin wet grains (Like a centerfuge) to aid in drying them for reuse as grain/flour/whatever. I also want to be able to collect the liquid to use for starters. This would be PERFECT for that use.

Guess it would work if I found a vessel slightly larger.

People use miller kegs for urinals... guess you now have a toilet for the brewroom. Maybe spraypaint it in Natty Ice colors.
