Why don't you just fab up a 8"-12" pup piece of pipe with two caps like you have the top piece? Just add a door, also like the top piece. In other words, just make a mini version of the top chamber, get a couple weld O-lets, a few union, nipples ect..

Have you thought of using an old water heater?

keep me posted, i'm still working to improve mine. Maybe with the help of the Brethren we can have two fine tuned machines that allow for more drinking and sleeping than wood stuffing.
Good Luck
