I got some "GrassyPavers" Tm to widen my driveway.
It's a plastic grid that protects the grass so you can drive on it.

The cool part is that the holes are almost the right size for beer bottles.
I can use about 42 out of 64 holes at the same time.

I'll probably cut them down to hold 30 or so, and use 2 for each brew session.

They're HDPE, so they can go in the dishwasher.
(Try that with plywood or cardboard.)

As far as I know, they're only available from
http://www.grassypavers.com
I checked Lowes, Home Depot, Ace, and my local building/landscaping supply.

I don't know how they'll react to a bunch of orders of 2 each.
If there's a lot of interest, maybe a homebrewer in Mississippi could get a
full pallet and break it up.

The hexagons are 2.125 inches.
2.5 inches would be better, and I'm sure someone in the world makes a honeycomb that size, but I have no idea how to find them.
