My engineer BIL and his engineer friend came up with this 3 tier design. It works pretty darn good and takes up very little space when not in use. It is a gravity system so no pumps are needed. There are 2 sculptures in the pictures and they often brew 2 batches side by side. I think they are pretty cool and they should be shared.

I think registering a patent is somewhere around $5K-$10K, but regardless you should design some plans and recoup the cost you got hit with to build the 2...and maybe make some more cash for ingredients etc. I think what you've got is something that lots of brewers could use...not big and bulky like most sculptures, very functional, and easy to store out of the way for an apartment or otherwise small abode...I could definitely see myself brewing on something like this.
