Default Cheap 15G Fermenter

Found this at US Plastics Website.. it doesnt say the material though, however it does say FDA and USDA approved and its 38 bucks plus shipping. For a poor man like myself would this be a viable option to ferment my 10g AG batches, or do you think there would be a problem?

Is there a DIY out there that converts a sanke to a conical? If not how about a way to get an air tight seal after you cut it open to put the ball valve in?

Check these ferementors that SuperiorBrew uses. Look at post #4 and then #10. It might be another alternative.

Sorry Guys!

I guess paying that price for bins in a commercial kitchen makes sense, especially if they last forever. No way I can come up with that sort of jack for residential use though. (I wish I could they look nice).

There is a mircobrew pub near me that ferments in 55 gal food grade barrels. He drops in a food grade liner and away he goes. No clean up either, just drop in a new liner and you're good to go again.
