We are proud to present our line of premium quality stainless steel tanks. Built in Germany by Speidel, the world-class traditions of German engineering and craftsmanship are reflected in these tanks. And, after examining tanks built by every major manufacturer worldwide, we can safely say that when it comes to features, quality and price, these tanks represent the very best value available in stainless steel wine storage.

Note: These stock tanks are outfitted with a single male threaded fitting which will accept either a Speidel Sample Valve or a Thermometer/Thermowell Combo. This fitting comes with a stainless steel cap. Either Sample Valve or the Thermometer can be added at the time of ordering or ordered separately at any point in the future. Speidel tanks can be ordered with a variety of custom features when they are ordered as part of our annual PreSeason Sale.

Speidel Quality Features:

  • Interior Finish - Speidel tanks feature an ultra-smooth 2R rated interior surface which effectively resists the build-up of tartrate residues. Clean your tanks with cold water after cold stabilization! Say goodbye to harsh cleaning chemicals and expensive CIP systems!
  • Weld Quality - Speidel's robotic-arm laser welders create flawless stainless to stainless junctions that look and feel more like a taped fabric seam than a traditional weld. Ultra high-quality welds leave no chance for residual product to harbor spoilage organisms.
  • Thickness - Speidel tanks are designed to be the correct thickness for the tank's total volume.
  • Complete Drainage Bottoms - All Speidel tanks are outfitted with conical, pocketed bottoms for total drainage, which maximizes product yield at rackings and makes cleaning a snap. *Please note that smaller, flat-bottomed tanks do not feature total drainage bottoms.
  • Tri-Clamp Valve Ferrules - All Speidel tanks come configured for use with Tri-Clamp (TC) style valves and fittings. Tanks up to 1600L capacity are outfitted for use with 1.5in TC. Other sizes and custom configurations are available at additional cost upon request. **Please Note: TC valves not included. Please inquire with your sales associate for pricing on TC valves and fittings.
  • Rubber Lid Gaskets - Rubber gaskets are much thicker than the traditional clear vinyl gaskets, which along with their extruded manufacturing process provide a much better seal with the tanks wall. They're seamless and more oxygen resistant than the clear gaskets. That means better protection for your wines!
  • Warranty - Speidel-Behaelter, GMBH backs up each and every tank with an industry-leading 25 year warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. And, as a 5th generation manufacturer, you can be confident they'll be around to honor that warranty should the need arise.

Tank Dimensions - 820mm D x 1328mm H (32.2" D x 52.2" H)

Note: Over tightening the airlock / orange bulk head can cause it to crack. Only thread the airlock down until it feels snug. Do not over tighten.

Does the tank come with the lid? if so does it also come with a gasket? Just confirming that this tank is good for fermenting and then longer term storage.
Guy F Talarico on Sep 11, 2022
BEST ANSWER: It does come with a lid and gasket. It works well but be mindful to check the pressure gage often to make sure the lid is airtight
Does this tank come with a stand? If not can I order one and what is the part number?
Bridgette Bennett on Feb 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Bridgette - This tank does not come with a stand nor do we sell a stand that can hold this large of a tank.
Is there a racking cane fitting that can be used with this tank to facilitate getting a gravity racking post MLF from this tank vs. the much more $$ tanks with multiple/higher ports?
Brian Kearney on May 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Brian - Unfortunately, we do not carry a racking cane that will be compatible with the referenced application.

Works perfectly for me but difficult for one person to tip and clean and handle.
