I have used several Speidel fermenters, and when I decided to ferment 10 gallon batches I opted for this style which had a similar lid to my 30 liter units, rather than the large top 60 liter unit.

Joe Keesling on May 7, 2020
What is the differnce between this and the 60 liter fermenter?
Louis Volpintesta Jr on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a storage container, you can do your ml fermentation in it but I would not do your initial fermentation in it because you can not do a good punch down. Hope this helps
if I want to store wine but cant fill it all the way, what should I do?
Mark A Coenen on Sep 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: While CO2 can work for blanketing some head space, Nitrogen or Argon is more ideal gas. CO2 can dissolve into the wine which would cause it to carbonate which is why we recommend Nitrogen or Argon. As mentioned, glass marbles will also do the trick of displacing the volume to reduce the head space.
Can someone please confirm the exterior dimensions as 22"L x 16"W x 22" H for this 60 L rectangular version? It seems this works out to be much larger than 60 L. I've got limited space and need to know the exact measurements before purchasing.
Derick Weis on May 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Dimensions as pictured in question:
22”L includes spigot
27”H includes airlock installed
15” W handle to handle
Great fermenter - extra space, easy to clean, strong and well-made

Great Fermenter
This is my 3rd Speidel fermenter and i absolutely love them. I had the round 60L and then purchased the new style 30L. I loved the large screw off lid so much I bought the new 60L to replace my old one with the huge clamp on lid. They are all fantastic though. Very heavy duty and very easy to clean.

Lightweight and Non-Breakable
Excellent storage and fermentation container. Perfect for MLF before moving to oak barrels for aging or just add oak cubes/staves to this container during aging. Easy to work with and clean. Lightweight with large opening for fast cleaning and sterilization.

The spout does not seal off completely so a small drip develops every couple of days.

Just right size with big improvements
I have barrel, flextanks and spiedels. This is the best overall design; twist on cap and shape lends itself for cleaning and storing wine.

Love it. But plastic spout leaks; so I just fixed this issue by purchasing a new solid cap and drilling it out and adding a brew tech stainless steel.

I use it to store mi RO/ DI water after treatment and before brewing. The tank is well built and comes with everything you need to ferment, if that is what you are using it for. I would but this over the big mouth bubbler.

Great Product
Used it three times now and it's a great product. Definitely recommend. I find that MoreBeer is a good company to deal with too.
