Anybody know how deep the trub containment is? I'm looking at the 7.9. Do you waste a lot or suck up junk when transferring?

I've bottled straight out of my 7.9, and haven't had any issues. There may be a little in the nozzle that comes out in the first second or two, but otherwise it's fine.

I'm just waiting for the tax return, too get a pair of these. The 31 gallon ferm would get a little heavy full. LOL

Mine came last week and so far I'm very happy with it. For those of you with the 30L/7.8 gal version, what are you using as a fermentation chamber? I have a nucool minifridge and it just barely fits after hacking off most of the door and using a blowoff tube. Does anyone use a minifridge chamber (maybe with a collar) that clears the stock airlock? Thanks!

I don't know if you saw a post I made earlier but I used a spigot on the top for a low-profile blow off tube set-up.

Like this


I realize you're using a different size, but I imagine this would still work. I've got the 60L in a 5cuft chest freezer. Tight fit, but it does fit.

I did see that - thanks for posting. I'm using that set up now, but I'm having some issues with my nucool (peltier coolers) so I'm contemplating switching to a compressor-type mini-fridge with a collar, and was just wondering if anyone has any recommendation.

I am bottling straight from a speidel 30l FV. When I sanitise the FV I run starsan thru the spigot for a minute or so. When I bottle 2 weeks later I spray starsan all over the spigot and inside too ie spray upwards. That's all that is needed.

I got an email update from MoreBeer on Speidel fermenters:

Quote:
We're writing to provide you with an update on our current order of Speidel plastic fermenters. While our original ETA was December, it looks as though the current shipment from Germany has been delayed, and we'll be receiving these closer to February.

We're certainly happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have, but please note that our customer service team does not have an updated ETA other than early-mid February.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, but ensure you we're working on getting these fermenters in as soon as possible. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Does anyone else have these in stock or are they exclusive through MoreBeer?
