I'm looking for a 32 - 48 ounce insulated carafe that will fit and =
safely support an Aeropress.  Anybody know of one?
Apologies to the list if this has been covered...

Hmm... do you mean a vessel to brew into with an AP?   Why would you
want one that large?  I use an AP daily and I figure a single press
produces about 8-12 oz depending on if you dilute after press or not.
Something as large as you've mentioned would take 2-3 presses to
fill...no?   ~carlos

Fit? The funnel that comes with the aeropress should adapt to a wide  
variety of thermos bottles. Note how the hexagonal base of the press  
fits into the funnel.

Yeah, but that's pretty unstable.  I tried pressing into the flip-top
thermos that SM sells and it was pretty precarious...  a wider-mouth thermos
might be better.  I honestly will press into a cup next time, then pour into
the thermos.... YMMV!Bill

Allon,
Ha,Ha,Ha, just laughing at myself. Here all this time making great presses
with the AP I thought that funnel was just to get the grounds into the
press. I have only used it for my big mug which the unit fits perfectly on.
As to adapting to a special, it shouldn't be hard to McGyver something
together for it. I can't jury rig the correct spelling of McGyver but I bet
I could build an adapter.

I have no clue about the aeropress, but sm's nissan thermos should fill 
the bill.  I have one of their 1.5L or whatever size the biggun is and 
love it.  Keeps coffee hot hot HOT all day on the boat, and I basically 
fill it via swissgold over the top ......
anyways it has a fairly wide mouth, you should be able to put your 
aeropress over it and dump into it.

Carlos, yes, I want to press 3 or 4 cups worth of "elixer" into a carafe =
and then dilute to an "americano" style.

It doesn't happen to fit the only insulated carafe that I own at =
present, but most of all I want something rock-solid to exert pressing =
force on.   Hopefully a wide-mouth carafe or "thermos" with a wide base =
that the aeropress would sit directly and solidly on.

Thanks, Aaron, I'll check it out.

Michael,
This probably isn't big enough but I've been using an Avantro travel mug
(LTM40). It only holds 14oz but the aeropress fits very nicely on top and
with the included "removeable docking station", i.e. wide base (gotta love
the PR people), it's very stable for pressing. Also, unscrew the base and it
fits in my car cup holder, is 100% leakproof, keeps the coffee hot long
enough for me and is very easy to clean.
Since this isn't a product carried by SM, I hope I'm not violating the list
rules by mentioning it....

I use the Aeropress on my travel mug  - Model JMQ-400C (from
SweetMarias).   Although the rim of the mug isn't flat, I have no
trouble pressing into it, using the Aeropress funnel.

Yeah, I'm doing a big fat "DOH" slap to my forehead as well. I though it 
was some eccentric design feature...

Marc & Dave, thanks.  I am looking for something larger, to prepare 3 or 4 
12oz cups at a time.  I had in mind something with a wide enough mouth to 
support the AP solidly on the flange, but larger capacity than a typical 
wide-mouth "soup" thermos.
