Description

We are proud to offer our small Variable Volume Tanks from Speidel - a German manufacturer of premium quality stainless steel tanks for the wine industry. The tank body is fabricated from 304-type stainless steel, while the floating lid is made from 316-type stainless and has an inflatable bladder that pumps up to seal the wine off at any volume level. They can be used for primary fermentation as well as aging.

Built in Germany by Speidel, the world-class traditions of German engineering and craftsmanship are reflected in these tanks. And, after examining tanks built by every major manufacturer worldwide, we can safely say that when it comes to features, quality and price, these tanks represent the very best value available in stainless steel wine storage.

These tanks arrive to you complete and ready to go out of the box after a little assembly. The tanks are fitted with 1/2 inch threaded ports to accomodate the included 1/2 inch stainless steel ball valve and 1/2 inch stainless plug. The plugged port is intended for use with an optional thermometer (MT500).

Speidel Quality Features:

  • Rubber Lid Gaskets: Rubber gaskets are much thicker than the traditional clear vinyl gaskets, which along with their extruded manufacturing process provide a much better seal with the tanks wall. They're seamless and more oxygen resistant than the clear gaskets. That means better protection for your wines!
     
  • Weld Quality - Speidel's robotic-arm laser welders create flawless stainless to stainless junctions that look and feel more like a taped fabric seam than a traditional weld. Ultra high-quality welds leave no chance for residual product to harbor spoilage organisms.
     
  • Interior Finish - Speidel tanks feature an ultra-smooth 2R rated interior surface which effectively resists the build-up of tartarate residues. Clean your tanks with cold water after cold stabilization! Say goodbye to harsh cleaning chemicals and expensive CIP systems!
     
  • Warranty - Speidel-Behaelter, GmbH backs up each and every tank with an industry-leading 25 year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. And, as a 5th generation manufacturer, you can be confident they'll be around to honor that warranty should the need arise.


Tank Dimensions: 440mm D x 765mm H (17.3" D x 30.1" H)

 

Note: Over tightening the airlock / orange bulk head can cause it to crack. Only thread the airlock down until it feels snug. Do not over tighten.  

Shipping Limitation: This item does not qualify for free shipping.

As a home wine maker I prefer smaller tank sizes as they are easier to work with and clean. Based on my research this brand has a good reputation with its products consistently receiving good reviews.

To use the optional thermometer (MT500), do I need to buy a thermowell (e.g. FE619)?

BEST ANSWER: No, you will either use the thermometer or the thermowell. You'd use the thermowell if you wanted to use a temperature controller as opposed to the thermometer.
What is the recommended cooling equipment for this tank?
Carter Page on Jul 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The 0.6 meter cooling snake would be the way to go.

Very nice quality. Could be improved by having the opportunity to completely drain it

could be better
Having owned 2 of these tanks for a couple years now I've started to realize a couple things. 1) The orange "airlock" is terrible. Switch it to one of the white marble airlocks before it costs you a batch of wine. 2) The shape of the lid is wrong. The lid has a curve so that the airlock hole in the middle is the lowest point in the wine. This means that it will leak ALL THE TIME out the airlock if it's sitting on the wine. If there's any kind of CO2 coming out (fermenting, MLF, or just degassing) the CO2 will build up under the lid and not vent since the gas is sitting around the edge of the lid instead of coming out the hole in the center. This means it will pressurize the wine in the tank and push it right out the airlock. I tried adding an airlock riser to it and it does not matter it will overflow. Even without CO2 coming out it will leak out the airlock due to volume changes with temperature fluctuations. Every other VC tank lid I've ever seen is flat. I won't be buying any more Speidel tanks until they change the design.
