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: 13.5in Diameter x 18.5in Height (w/out airlock in place). Note - The maximum temperature that these plastic fermenters can handle is 140F.

After reviewing other plastic fermentors, this seems to be the most trusted brand. Plus, it's german made. I'm a believer in German made products

awesome fermenter
Michael W on Apr 27, 2018
Good reviews and size. Conicals in plastic was desired before this, but reviews on the conical made me purchase this one.
Patrick J on Apr 18, 2018
I already own 2 and bought 2 more. I have over 15 batches in each one without any problems. These things are fantastic. If you have the extra $ make sure you buy the chrome spigot since the one it comes with is plastic and el cheapo.

I brew 5 gallon batchs and based on no bad reviews, this was a no brainer choice for upgrading from bucket fermentors.

Ralph S on Aug 7, 2018
Does this unit include a threaded cap that will screw into the opening where the bung and airlock are inserted? I want to make sure I can completely seal fermenter if necessary in order to cold crash.
Douglas F on Feb 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this fermenter will include one locking cap to seal the hole in the lid and/or spigot area.

I like these because at my age my strength has diminished and with two handles helps me a lot.

Fermenting perfection.
For a fermenter, this thing is built like a tank. Guaranteed to last a very long time. Will be purchasing more in the near future.

pretty nice!
overall pretty happy with this one. i love how sturdy this thing is and the over sized airlock. The couple of things i would change with this fermentor would be to etch some graduation marks and rethink the gasket for the spigot. if you dont get some water in the vessel and mess with the seal, you will surely experience a leak. otherwise, a great value and will get plenty of use!

Heavy Duty Fermenter
I have only used this for 1 batch. It works well and easy to move with the handles. High density plastic vessel, with the attachable parts being sturdy and looks to hold up over time.
For a plastic unit, I haven't seen or used better.
