My first post so I'll put it here.
It was fermenting in the cube/jerry that appealed to me and it didn't get any simpler than Birko,BIAB,No Chill,Ferment.The only hassle is wrestling with a hot jerry can trying to get a good seal.So after seven brews I decided the next one was going to be easier.So I made this.

Then I got carried away and made this.

So next brewday it looked like this before the squeeze with a set of wheels.

After the squeeze.

All I had to do was put the top on and wheel it into the garage to cool.All up it cost $6.50 for a length of threaded 3/8" rod, two joiners and two wing nuts.I already had the 20mm tube so it was a quick build and made my brewday less of a pain.

Pretty sure cubes in "real" breweries contain cleaning products only.

(NB: no-chiller)

For the cubists.
I did not realise Braque and Gris were no-chill brewers.

Nice job on the project.
