Description

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: 15.75in Diameter x 24in Height (w/out airlock in place). The maximum temperature that these plastic fermenters can handle is 140F. Approx. 17in Diameter including handles.

**Please Note - The handles on the Speidel Plastic Fermenters are capable of handling a weight load of 66lbs each, or 132lbs when using both. Therefore, they can be used to move this unit when full.

Good option in plastic fermenters.
Moving up to 10 gallon batches and want to be able to pitch into a single container. Affordable and I love plastic fermenters after shattering a glass carboy that slipped when I was cleaning it. Plastic is so much lighter and easier on the back.

Do the lines/creases on the fermenter indicate volume at all?
Jacin E Suskin on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. I took a marker and drew lines on the fermenter while manually filling it with a measuring bucket. The three major lines happen to fall at 5.5 gallons, 11.5 gallons and 16 gallons by my measurements.
Anyone else have problems getting the lid closed? The gasket that came with the 60L tank is too large, and doesn't allow the lid to seal.
WILLIAM SCHNEIDER on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The thing I discovered about the gasket is it is designed to fit inside the lid, not on the tank. Inside the lid there is a recess on the outer edge that holds the gasket. To help hold the gasket in place while working with the lid, I coat the gasket with CIP-Film. When you install the lid on the tank, push down on the lid firmly around the perimeter and you should feel it slip into place and hear a slight "pop". When I clean and sanitize this fermenter, it is placed upside down without leaking. I have not had any problems achieving a seal. Hope this helps.

Can you use a vacuum pump to move wine into these vessels?
William Andrews on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes that can be done through the top port in lid by removing airlock or through the turn valve in bottom.

Love my fermenter
60 litre is just the right size for my 10 gallon batches. I like to rack with my cane and the indentations on the bottom keep the cane off the bottom.

Great fermenter!!!
Overall I like it a lot. It's super light and easy to clean. Only flaw is the lid and strap to seal it.
It requires a lot of strength and patience to fit the lid on it and then to pull the latch to seal it tightly.
Would purchase it again, but probably would go with the rectangle version as it doesn't take away as much space as the round version in my fermentation chamber

Good fermenter but needs one little feature
Got my first batch in this fermenter today and it seems to be a good product. I thought it was a little pricey for a plastic tub with a drain valve and plastic top but I think it will do the job.

The only thing I think it needs and would make it as good as my smaller plastic conical is a thermometer well. I use a plastic foil heater to keep my IPAs at 68 degrees in my garage which has an ambient temp between 50 and 65 most of the year. I just tape the foil to the fermenter with metal foil tape..But without a thermowell built into the fermenter I have to tape my contoller temp probe to the outside of the fermenter which isn't really the same as the wort temp inside.

A Perfect Fermenter
This is an ideal product; it's sturdy and holds its' shape regardless of how full it is, the handles are strong, the lid seals really well, it has a spigot for a drain if you want it (otherwise it has a nice cap), and it's easy to clean. I'm not sure it could be better. I just wish they also had a smaller version that still had a large (full-size) lid. I have used this for two years, and it is simply a wonderful fermenter.

Setting up to do a Lager which takes some time in the frementer about 6 to 8 weeks and plan for 10 to 15 gal to make it worth while! Love the size!

Speidel Fermentor 60L
Great product. Very solid construction. Was worried about the plastic handles but they proved equally solid. Lid clamps on securely and large open top makes is easy to clean. Only issue I had that prevented 5 stars was there is a thick rubber seal that goes into a channel on the lid. My seal falls out fairly easy making it tough to put the lid on because when you flip the lid, half the seal rolls out onto the tank.

First Use of Speidel Fermenter
So far, I've used my fermenter once to make 5 gallons of pigeon plum wine. Handles are strong. Easy to clean. The lid/strap design is problematic, but there's a youtuber who shows how to fix that with zip ties I believe. The MoreFlavor folks did a good job shipping, btw.

I need interior filtration, so I'm guessing the starting point for adding something would be this:

https://www.morebeer.com/products/stainless-12-coupling-speidel-plastic-fermenters.html

Is this correct MoreFlavor folks?

Anyway, this is a very good barrel that is all kinds of useful.
February 25, 2018
Response from MoreFlavor
Correct, that product will allow you to attach something that has 1/2 in. MPT on the inside of the fermenter. Just be careful not to clog the screen/product you attach on the inside. If you have to many large particles in the fermenter it can clog the screen/product easily. Cheers!
