I'm interested. Seems like you'd have to get the 3-pack for the price to be even close to worth it. I'm curious about reviews though.
Primary 1: Vanilla Stout (+1gal of coffee vanilla stout)
Primary 2: empty
Bottled: Al's Elixir IPA
Drinking:True Brew Pale Ale

It seems like a really good product. I just use beer cases with a small towel at the bottom, when I bottle.

Judging by the title, I was totally hoping this thread was going to go in a different direction.

The main problem I see is nothing to catch the drainage from bottles that have been washed or sanitized.

Seems like I've seen this same kind of thing on here made with a small tote with holes cut in the lid...

Nice design. I thought about making one of them tote things, but my wife and kids bought be a tree.

Frankly, these would be easier to store away when not in use I think.

Looks like they've updated their product since this thread was originally posted and added a drip tray. I was just sent some of these racks (and drip tray) from FastRack to give an unbiased review -and overall I think they are amazing. No more awkward bottle stacking for me! Definetly worth checking out- they are starting to appear at LHS too (@ least in VA).

You can check out the entire FastRack review here:

The bottle tree is about 10 years old... have been looking at the bottle rack. Looks like it would save space and make it easier to organize things.
