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 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.


  • 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).

Sidney H on Sep 27, 2022
Is there headroom beyond the stated amount in the product size like the stainless Speidel fermenters? Their larger conicals are compensated for the batch size with the extra headroom needed.
Michael Sharpe on Apr 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: these do appear to have about 1/8th additional headroom above the stated capacities, from my rudimentary math/investigations.
What do you use to control the temperature in the 120L Speidel fermenter?
Susan Hatton on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They fit perfectly into most standing freezers.
Does this fermenter have volume measurements?
Ryan Cutsforth on Jul 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Ryan - The Speidel FE725 does not come with volume markings.
Does anyone know how much pressure these tanks/lids can hold? I want to seal the tank as fermentation starts to wind down and am curious how many PSI these tanks are rated for. Thanks in advance!
Joey McMonagle on Nov 24, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I've used these at around 5 psi for transfers and not had many issues. You will definitely see the lid start to swell and bulge a bit from the pressure, but it shouldn't pop off if you're using under 5-7 psi or so.
