"Exactly. I use a 30L stock pot as my FV and the lack of a seal is not an issue. If you can raise the FVs slightly, you can avoid the need to use CO2 pressure to push the beer from the FV to your kegs. Alternatively, if you're dead set on…"

"Unless you're planning on cold crashing them for quite some time you don't really need to seal them up as with all the CO2 pumping out it'll be under a slight pressure all the time anyway. All you really need is something to stop crap…"

Barry replied to bazza's discussion Large fermenters
"If you're gonna go to the trouble of making 200l of beer, and all that entails - yeast, hops, energy for brewing, cooling that much wort, finished beer storage, etc, no way would I ferment in anything other than stainless steel. I don't…"

I've looked at the plastic conical induction tanks available in the states http://www.tank-depot.com/product.aspx?id=854but shipping is about 3 times the price of the tank. any bright ideas about what could be avaiable in nz. I've looked at the 200ltr barrels on trademe but they are all second hand. See More

"how do the 090 go for you. on my first batch it went hard and got the job done. the  4 re-pitches since takes off fast, goes hard to 2 - 3 days then slows right down taking 6 -8 days to get through the last from points to final gravity. I pitch…"
