Can the Brewcraft 30L fermenter handle hot wort?
 
I know its probably a strange question, but I can't seem to find out what kind of plastic this brewcraft fermenter is made out of: http://www.store.homebrew4less.com/Brewcraft-8-Gallon-Fermenter/productinfo/BC1377-1/

I assumed it was hpde and could handle the heat, but after looking at it today I'm not sure. I have a batch mashing in right now and my plan was to do a no/slow chill method where i transfer the wort into this fermenter, pop it in the cooler and pitch the yeast tomorrow. I'm a little worried now though. Any ideas or thoughts on what this is made out of or if can handle the heat, etc?

Thanks all,
JD

If it doesn't indicate HDPE on the bottom, assume it won't handle higher temps (above 140-150F).

Give HB4L a call, Blaine will tell you if it is stamped with HDPE on teh bottom.
