How heavy are these when they have fermenting beer? Which size of vaults do you use?

I use the ones for 50lbs of dog food. It will hold a bit over 13g. They work nice for my 11g batches. It probably weighs close to a 100lbs with that much beer in it, but I just put them on the wagon and wheel them around to various parts of the house to maintain temperatures. They also fit in my converted mini-fridge fermentation cabinet when that doesn't work. They make a 20lbs version that will fit 6g. The biggest downside is the cost, I think they run $50+.

The lids are the same screw in gamma seal lids that you can buy from US
plastics for regular buckets.
