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: 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.

We use this one because it is easy and can be moved around without use of any dolly's or pallet jacks. Easy to use and once we found these we have used nothing else.

This will be my 5th one, the size is perfect, and they are easy to handle when cleaning.
Cafe R on Mar 30, 2018
Referred by a mead making friend. Will use for cider and gluten free fermenting.
Larry F on Mar 29, 2018
Because 15 gallons just isn't big enough & if you have one you really need another to be able to rack into.

Just having a few on hand helps make things very easy to whip out an extra batch on demand!

I like the price for such a large fermenter. Getting the large o-ring to remain seated when removing the lid is a bit of a challenge. If your not careful, when you remove the lid it can fall into your fermenting beverage

Speidel Fermenters
Speidel has though of everything you could do with the fermenter and gave you all the parts you need. This is the best fermenter I have ever had, and will be buying more in the future. MoreBeer has great products in its line, good prices, and fast delivery. YES, I wood suggest to anyone if they want to a great product, buy MoreBeer Products and Speidel Fermenters. Thanks !!!

Hate to do so but I usually have nothing but good feedback but my fermentor arrived a bit bent bent so it doesn't give a good seal.

Its big, it holds beer
Using these for our startup micro, holds 1bbl of finished wort with a little headspace. Can hold a little pressure so you can ferment under a few PSI if you want which tames the krausen, also makes it nice for pressure transfers once its finished.

Best option out there!
This is by far the best fermentation option out there for big batches.
Cheapest option to ferment 30 gallons! I've never even had to use a blow-off tube.
Easy to clean.
Lighter than stainless or glass to carry around.
Easy to calibrate (mark outside with a sharpie).
Easy to transfer in/out of through the top or spigot. I run out of my kettle into buckets and then pour them in through the huge top opening.

I have transferred to kegs using CO2 pressure (by attaching a 2nd spigot on the top) and it works fine, but it's easier to just set it on something high enough to pour directly into the kegs.

Only downside is the plastic spigot, it doesn't fit a 3/8" or 1/2" vinyl hose without a lot of effort (and potentially skinned knuckles) spend the money on the chrome spigot.

awesome long term wine storage
I just bought my 6th one! I bulk age my reds in them and manage to get 33.6 gallons topped full. I use wine stix staves for my oak 5-6 months and every bit as good as oak barrels! I use a transfer pump to move my wine from barrel to barrel for racking then clean out super easy indoors in my commercial sink or outside with a hose.

YOU NEED ONE !!!
I have 5 stainless fermenters and 3 of these big guys. These are not as pretty but when it comes to picking them up to take outside to clean, much easier! Use some food safe lube on the lid seal before you use it. Also the stainless spout is worth the extra money. I turned the plastic spout into a blow off and works great! HOPE THIS HELPS!!!
