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: 13.5in Diameter x 18.5in Height (w/out airlock in place). Note - The maximum temperature that these plastic fermenters can handle is 140F.

Does this unit include a threaded cap that will screw into the opening where the bung and airlock are inserted? I want to make sure I can completely seal fermenter if necessary in order to cold crash.
Douglas F on Feb 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this fermenter will include one locking cap to seal the hole in the lid and/or spigot area.

Nice 9 gal vessel!
Works great! It's advertised as 7.9 gal but that appears to be the volume above the lower spigot. As I was marking out 1/2 gal increments on the side I was able to get about 9 gal into the vessel right at base of the upper threaded section that is integral with the vessel (the section that the large orange thread ring attaches to). Love the extra space for the larger ABV beers that krausen extensively.

It is what it is, but I wished it was not so opaque so as to more clearly see what the beer is doing during fermentation. This is the only negative I see, if you even call it a negative.

Good quality
I have just begun to use this container, so my review is less valuable than others. Having said that, it is exactly what I expected, the containers and components seem durable.

I hope it will work well as a simple inexpensive means of micro-oxygenating red wines.

Great Fermenter!
This is the best frermenter that you can get for the money! It’s solidly constructed, easy to lift and easy to clean. The 30 liter is also the best size for a 5 gallon batch with plenty of head space. I’ve made both wine and beer with it, love this fermenter!

Great fermenter. My first batch with this was a hefe, yes nice and messy as a trial by fire. It cleaned up easily. Skip right to this one as your first fermenter, you won't regret it.

Good System--needs better spigot gasket
Overall system is well made. My only problem was with the spigot cap which leaked no matter how it was attached or tightened. To secure the spigot cap so it would not leak I swapped the gasket from the locking cap, which is a little beefier, for the thinner gasket in the spigot cap.
