Stainless Steel Fermenters via “The Gourmet Import Shop”. Mark Says: “This place has some large stainless steel carboy-style fermenters for very low prices. They are Italian fustis. The Minox 50-liter for $180 (faucet extra)”
The promo has expired. Also Consider…
Brew Bucket Fermenters are made from food grade 304 stainless steel. They have a rotary racking valve and sport a 6.95 gallon capacity. They also nest for easy storage and stack on top of each other for space efficient fermentation. Silicone lid gasket with a spring loaded lid for an airtight seal and… more.

I’m a little confused on what exactly is NSF certified about these things. They seem to have a welded threaded port, which wouldn’t qualify as sanitary. The valves are not advertised as NSF certified, so they almost certainly aren’t. NSF also has numerous certifications, not all of which would be recommended for cold side use.
Seems like a good deal, but the lack of a sanitary valve option kind of makes in not a viable option for me.
Interested to hear other thoughts.
