I have a Speidel 5.3 gallon fermenter that I use for small Brew in a Bag batches. I'm very happy with the quality and function of this fermenter.
Some Benefits of Speidel Fermentation Tanks:
- High quality, German manufactured.
- Made of High Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
- Heavy duty and much thicker than traditional plastic carboys
- Oversized top opening makes for easy cleaning.
- Integrated spigot
- All connections have o-rings to insure you have no liquid or gas leaks.
- Integrated handles for easily moving these around.
- Unlike traditional carboys, these will not shatter.
- High density construction is highly resistant to oxygen ingress, making these suitable for longer term (up to 12 month) use.
- Up to 31.7 gallons

From the Feedback Page:
Ronnie 6/30/13: These are the best! Having gone from bucket to glass carboy to better bottles to the 15.9 speidel, the speidel tops them all. Easy to clean and cheap!
Facebook Friend Sean 6/26/13: Speidel fermenters are AWESOME!! Thanks for posting those.
Google+ Friend Kyle 5/31/13: Mine is full right now! Love this fermenter, no more differences in flavor because I had to split my batch to ferment. Easy open top makes is a breeze to clean. Should be on every homebrewers wish list.
Muncie 5/31/2013: I have the 30L and it is my "go to" fermenter. Just a great product. No
need for a blow off tube for this 5 and 6 gallon batches.
Anonymous 5/30/2013: I have the 60L and it is awesome. Very high quality and easy to use / clean. The handles are sturdy even completely full, but if you do fill it up all the way, be prepared to get a friend to help you move it.
Tony 3/26/2013: Gotta pipe in on these. I have the 20L and 60L tanks. The quality is high. They come with a bung and airlock made for these larger tanks. They also have spigots and big lids to make cleaning a snap. The spigot on the 20 is about 1 1/2 inches above the bottom of the tank. On the 60 it is closer to 3". This allows for transfers with the spigot without pulling in too much of the yeast cake. I just line up the spigot and pour directly into my keg. No hoses, siphons, funnels, etc. Easy. The handles are great. You can lift the huge 60L one alone, but it's really heavy, even with only 11 gallons... there's lots of room for more, so you could easily make a 12 gallon batch in there too without needing a blowout tube. Headroom is great on these. With the 20L, it has room for the 5.5 gallon batches I make, and I have no issues with blow-outs, even with big IPAs. NOTE: I do use defoamer, which I think helps a lot. On the 60L, there's tons of room above an 11 gallon batch. My current batch of amber ale had only about 2 inches of foam and another 6" of headspace. There are other cheaper options, and you can find nice HDPE tanks on ebay that are similar, but they won't have it all together, purpose built like these.
