Beer antlers (bottle drainer)

Beer antler helps drain bottles.

Nine 22oz bottles fit in a 5 gallon pail and I got tired of draining them one at a time.  With the antler you just plug the full bottle into the receptacle and go get the next full bottle.  All made from 1 inch pvc pipe and fittings.

 Parts:
  • 10 feet of 1" pvc 450 psi tubing
  • 1 x 45 degree fitting
  • 5 x cross
  • 11 X  elbow 90 degree
  • PVC one step hot glue
Tubing cuts:
  • 11 x 2 inch
  • 9 x 2 1/4 inch - cut with cross slot
  • 2 x 18 inch
  • 2 x 10 inch
  • 2 x 6 inch
Seal one end of the 18 inch tube.  Put a beer cap down inside and seal with silicone.  Just place the cap on the floor and pound the tube down onto it.

Drill some drain holes on the 10 inch pieces.  Keeps the sealed ends from popping when assembled.

Hot glue only the connectors on the main strut.  Or do what ever you want.
