Can anyone using them for primary comment on the height of the spigot as far as transferring off of the trub is concerned?
Anybody try the "Cavern" from Deep Woods Brew? Stainless steel drum fermenters they refer to as being carboy style. Way pricier but I imagine quite a bit more durable.
They're essentially selling olive oil futsi with a hole drilled in the top for a heck of a mark up. Here is an example of another store selling the same thing (essentially) for $50 less http://thevintnervault.com/product/2881/Fusti-30-liter.html
At the price DWB is charging, you can buy a brand new keg and ferment in that and still spend less. Their business model makes no sense to me.
As for the Speidel, I ordered a few yesterday when they went up on sale. If you happen to get a shipping notification from MoreBeer, please speak up. I'd love to know when they start to roll out.
