Description

The future is here today, and the future is HDPE Fermentation & Storage Tanks from Speidel. Made in Germany from nothing but undyed and food-safe plastic, these tanks are produced with particularly thick walls which preserves the aroma and the alcohol for a markedly long time. The stable carrying handles have been tried and tested for decades and are extremely durable.

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 and rectangular shape 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
  • 26"L x 18"W x 26"H, 11 lbs

FAQ:

  • Can filled containers be carried by the handles?
    • Depending on the weight—barrels up to 30L are no problem—60L is the limit and should not be carried when completely full. The handles have a weight capacity of 30kg (66 lbs).
  • Is there an upper limit on the alcohol content of the stored liquid?
    • In principle, there is not. However, it should be noted that the higher the alcohol content, the faster the seals and, to a lesser extent, the tank itself will wear out.
  • Up to what temperature can the containers be used?
    • For short periods of time the containers can withstand temperatures of up to 80°C (176°F). This temperature should not be exceeded. For longer periods of time the containers can be used at temperatures up to 60°C (140°F).

Is this any good for primary fermentation?
Jeffrey Lees on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I bought it as both a primary fermenter and a storage tank as my needs dictate. The lid has an O-ring seal and it has an airlock. When using as a storage vessel, the airlock is replaced with a sealed cap.
I noticed everybody is using this for wine. Is there any reason that this should not be used for beer?
Bobby Chastain on Dec 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You can absolutely use these for beer. In theory the difference in geometry of the fermenters will change the yeast character by a tiny amount as the surface area of the wort on the yeast and the way the yeast will circulate will be slightly different from a standard round or conical fermenter. Though most yeast manufacturers will tell you that difference is practically imperceptible.

Great container, but Morewine's specs are off...
This is a great container for fermenting or storing wine. Unlike the older, round Speidel containers, the cover is sloped so that no air gets trapped inside. However, I intially hesitated to buy this tank for a very long time because MoreWine states the weight to be 75lbs which is way too heavy to easily work with. The tank actually weighs about 10lbs (maybe there's a decimal point missing...). In addition, the volume of the "100L" I purchased was actually 110L, which caused me to scramble the first time I filled it up.

I would highly recommend these!
I purchased several of the 100 liters these this fall and now have 5 total in use. Light weight, really easy to clean, extremely functional. Being rectangular, not circular, they take up so much less room! Also, the 100 liter can be delivered by the Fed Ex, UPS, or USPS and the rate is dirt cheap!
Seems like Speidel is right on the mark with the design of these!
