Description

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: 15.75in Diameter x 24in Height (w/out airlock in place). The maximum temperature that these plastic fermenters can handle is 140F. Approx. 17in Diameter including handles.

**Please Note - The handles on the Speidel Plastic Fermenters are capable of handling a weight load of 66lbs each, or 132lbs when using both. Therefore, they can be used to move this unit when full.

Will this fit with the airlock in a kegerator?
Martin Anderson on Nov 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Can't answer the question. I don't know the dimensions of a kegerator (don't have one). I can tell you the whole thing barely fits inside a normal size refrigerator.
Do the lines/creases on the fermenter indicate volume at all?
Jacin E Suskin on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. I took a marker and drew lines on the fermenter while manually filling it with a measuring bucket. The three major lines happen to fall at 5.5 gallons, 11.5 gallons and 16 gallons by my measurements.
Anyone else have problems getting the lid closed? The gasket that came with the 60L tank is too large, and doesn't allow the lid to seal.
Rob S on Jan 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The thing I discovered about the gasket is it is designed to fit inside the lid, not on the tank. Inside the lid there is a recess on the outer edge that holds the gasket. To help hold the gasket in place while working with the lid, I coat the gasket with CIP-Film. When you install the lid on the tank, push down on the lid firmly around the perimeter and you should feel it slip into place and hear a slight "pop". When I clean and sanitize this fermenter, it is placed upside down without leaking. I have not had any problems achieving a seal. Hope this helps.

Can you use a vacuum pump to move wine into these vessels?
William Andrews on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes that can be done through the top port in lid by removing airlock or through the turn valve in bottom.
what sized tubing fits the speidel spigot?
Trevor Langrehr on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1/2" ID silicone tubing fits perfect.

60L Speidel Fermenter
I bought this 60L fermenter to go with another 60L one that I already had. This year I will have alot more grapes from my vines than last year and will need the additional capacity for the fermentation. The large top opening makes it easy to transfer the fermented grapes to the press and makes for easy cleaning. Great product.

Speidel Plastic Fermenter - 60L (15.9 gal)
So far it works fine. I don't really care for the lid. It was rather difficult to put on. Plus no information about anything related to the lid was included with the shipment.

The lid design need adjustment because of the gasket comes loos when placing the lid into position. Also the concave of the lid needs to be higher above the rim of the lid. Other then that it's a nice fermentation vessel. I now have 7 of them.
