I can´t believe that it´s so hard to get this fermenters, for once living in Europe it´s a good thing. There is other very similar fermenters from Mr Malt in Italy don´t know if you can get this in the States:
28 liters

and 50 liters

In the interim you could always get these 13 gal "barrels" off of eBay. They're $20 + 16 shipping, but you can combine shipping on two. My first batch seems to have fermented fine.

Sure as heck not the same quality as speidel, but it'll get you to 10 gal while you wait.

Received my little 1.2L Speidel today. It holds 3.5 gal right up to rim and if you let it drain out it leaves 1 qt which should be just about right to keep the left over yeast and trub out.

Concerns I have, the top lid has scratches on the inside and don't know if it will hold any nasties.

The handle is in the way if I were to put an air lock on top. I'd have to remove the air lock before moving the fermenter around. I'm thinking maybe not even use an air lock and just loosen the top a bit? In theory the co2 blanket should keep it safe right?

I have one of my two 60l rockin' with 10 gallons of my house IPA. It just fits in my fermenter and it does bug me a bit that I can't see in like with my better bottles but with a single yeast pitch and the ability to rack directly to a keg is awesome.

I modified the stock cap to take a thermowell and a standard airlock. So far so good.
