Ferment and store your craft homebrew all in the same container!
These HDPE Fermentation & Storage Tanks from Speidel are great for fermenting and storing your beer or wine. The built-in handle and large lid opening make these fermenters easy to transport and easy to clean. The heavy duty HDPE construction means they won't shatter if dropped, and they resist oxygen transfer. They feature a spigot for easy transfer of liquids and an oversized 2-piece Speidel airlock. All ports seal with gaskets and the vessel can be fully sealed for long-term storage. Designed and manufactured in Germany by Speidel.
12L: Perfect for storing small lots and experimental batches or taking some of your beer 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 large 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: For fermenting and storing large batches of anything.
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.
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).
