The future is here today, and the future is HDPE Fermentation & Storage Tanks from Speidel.

Are you tired of carboys? Hate siphoning to transfer? Wish you could ferment larger batches in a single container? Sick of lifting 50lbs by a small metal handle? Done with worrying about shattered glass, injury and lost product? Well then have we got the solution for you!

These heavy duty plastic tanks offer a fantastic fermentation & storage solution at a great price.

Key Features:

  • Heavy duty HDPE construction is durable and resists oxygen transfer. None of the risks of working with glass.
  • Small footprint makes them easy to store - take better advantage of the space you have to dedicate to wine & beer making.
  • Built-in handles make these tanks easy to move, even when full.
  • Large lid opening makes them easy to clean by hand - say goodbye to your carboy brush!
  • All ports seal with gaskets and the vessel can be fully sealed for long-term storage.
  • Includes a spigot and oversized 2-piece Speidel airlock.
  • Designed and manufactured in Germany by Speidel, the makers of our legendary commercial wine tanks

Suggested Applications:

  • 12L: Perfect for storing small lots, making experimental batches and taking some of your beer or wine along with you to your next party.
  • 20L: Ideal for secondary fermentation and storage of 5 gallon batches.
  • 30L: The vessel for fermenting wine kits and 5 gallon batches of beer with plenty of headspace and no need for a blowoff tube.
  • 60L: Perfect for fermenting larger batches of wine or 10 gallon batches of beer in a single container! Only 4" larger in diameter than a 6.5 gallon carboy!
  • 120L: Ferment & Store large batches of anything - your creativity is the only limit!

Approximate Dimensions: 20in Diameter x 33in Height (w/out airlock in place). The maximum temperature that these plastic fermenters can handle is 140F.

**Please Note - The handles on the Speidel Plastic Fermenters are capable of handling a weight load of 66lbs each, or 132lbs when using both. They should not be used to move this unit when full.

Is there headroom beyond the stated amount in the product size like the stainless Speidel fermenters? Their larger conicals are compensated for the batch size with the extra headroom needed.
Michael Sharpe on Apr 8, 2019
What do you use to control the temperature in the 120L Speidel fermenter?
Susan Hatton on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They fit perfectly into most standing freezers.
Does this fermenter have volume measurements?
Ryan Cutsforth on Jul 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ryan - The Speidel FE725 does not come with volume markings.

Gasket could be better
I like everything except the gasket for the lid. It falls off most of the time as soon as you turn the lid over to put it on the fermenter.

Great price. Easy to clean.

Works great!
We have brewed 3 or 4 batches (20g.) and they are just as clean and tasty as our old 27g. SS fermenter. Foam never reaches the lid so clean up is easier. Lid is huge and comes on and off easily for cleaning and dry hopping and pitching. Light and easy to handle but very sturdy

My Third 120-Liter Speidel!
A great line of fermenters with interchangeable pieces and parts. We currently have 8 Speidel fermenters/tanks in various sizes to make both beer and wine. The larger units (120 liter, 100-liter (rectangular), and 60 liter) are excellent for storing wine during Malolactic fermentation and before transferring over to a barrel. They also get called into service when it's time to blend and bottle our wine. Yeah, stainless steel is s**y and high-end, Speidel is economical and practical. One more 120-liter model and we'll be set!
