They are a little more from Amazon, but at least you don't have to go inside a WalMart to get them.

+1 for this thread. I've been using these crates for months and love them. Figured it was worth a bump to say thanks for the idea.

I found almost the same crates at Wegmans (grocery Store) for 5.99 and they work great. All my cardboard boxes were falling apart. I can fit 30 bottles in a crate. Didn't even think to use them as a drying rack.

Works for me, so I bought 3 and maybe a few more soon.
I bought two of these this morning. They definitely come in handy during the whole drying phase.

Hey, new member here, haven't brewed my first batch yet, and this thread was a lifesaver. I was hoping to find good storage and drying racks, but these do both, AND are dirt cheap. I assume for back to school, they were under $4 each when I looked today.
