speidel fermenters

Speidel Fermenters via MoreBeer!  About: “If you’re looking for a plastic carboy that’s a step ahead of the traditional varieties, you’ll love MoreBeer’s selection of Speidel plastic fermenters. These heavy duty Speidel tanks from one of the most trusted names in home brewing supplies are equipped with a number of different features that simpler carboys just don’t have. Their oversized top openings make cleaning a breeze, while the integrated handles make for easy transportation, even when full.

All Speidel fermenters are made of high density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic that is much thicker than traditional plastic used on most brewing carboys. They also come in sizes that can accommodate up to 30 gallons of liquid, enabling MoreBeer! shoppers to choose the perfect size plastic fermentation tank for any brew batch. They’re not just made for beer, either; Speidel’s high-density construction is resistant to oxygen ingress, which makes them suitable for aging wines for up to 12 months as well.”

Speidels are great fermenters packed with features.  Heavy Duty HDPE Construction – durable and resistant to oxygen transfer,  Safe – no glass breakage risk, built in handles, large lid opening means easy cleaning, all ports seal with gaskets, includes spigot (no more siphoning) and 2 Piece Speidel airlock.  Designed and manufactured in Germany.  Available in sizes from 3.2 gallons all the way up to 132 gallons.

Reader Tip: 48″ Kettle Whip – Mash Paddle For Larger Batches

Thanks to HBF Reader Nathan for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]Winco 48-Inch Kettle Whip

Winco 48-Inch Kettle Whip by Winco

Nathan Says: “I know that you have had a lot of success with the whisk and I personally purchased it, but for me and just doing 10+ gallon batches it was a pain and would bend and just didn’t really work that well for me. I wanted to send a new product that I have purchased and its larger but sturdier and feel likes it does a better job.”  Related:  Four Easy Upgrades for Brew Day & Hands on Review – 24″ Stainless Whisk
