Just curious what others are using out there to contain those vigorous batches that like to spew foam out of the airlocks and spill. Also for your beer storage areas to make sure no bottles crack open etc. I keep mine in a wardrobe and used a heat gun to better conform a weathertech cargo liner to the shape. Not perfect but it works. What do you use?

Looks like you also have a couple of spirit orbs in that pic too. I still keep mine on the fermenter stand with a blow off rig. No worries then.

Blowoff tube in the bathtub. Doubles as a cheap swamp cooler when needed, too.
