These kind of games are exactly why I quit with "preorders". If they decided to keep your money, you're out of the window to dispute the transaction.

It's a tool the business does to put in a no risk bulk order. You as a customer assume all the risk. People seem happy to do the preorder games with homebrew vendors for some reason. But this is just another example of many recent problems with preorders from various retailers people have posted.

I was bumped 3 times since my 10/11/12 order... I was shipped a 20L in December (I ordered a 60 & 20) .... That was dissapointment in the making... Saw the ship notice, thought I was getting the big one, got home and saw the box. Thought, how can they get such a big thing in a little box... Just didn't click until I opended the box and saw the small one. Now I know how my kids feel when I buy the wrong Lego set.

Sent an email over the weekend asking on status. Was told I was to get mine shipped out this week. A little bit later I got a ship email.... So, it looks like I'll be making a 10 gallon batch soon!
Woot! Woot!

I've been interested in ordering one of these for at least a year but every time I go to the site, they are out of stock. Are these things ordered by the container load...or just a bulk shipment? This has probably already been asked and answered, but why do we only have one vendor for these in the US?

So, about 2 yrs ago, I found these on ebay. They are 8-9 gal and HDPE. I have three and I added valves to two and left the other without a valve. I'm going to find that seller and ask if he still has access to these. I thought I posted these in this thread, but it must have been a different Speidel thread.

Being that you ordered a day before me and it's on the way, is encouraging. I dropped them an email. I guess I'll have to see if I'm as lucky as you were.

MoreBeer orders them by the container.

Apparently they load them on an old-timey wooden ship, come across the Atlantic and down around the Southern tip of South America, up the coast to finally reach the San Francisco Bay.

Who knows why they are the only vendor in the US... they seem to be a pretty limited production operation, so that may be it.

Just got a reply back from them that they have received their most recent shipment and orders are being shipped out within the next 7-10 business days.
That said, they didn't specifically state that MINE was the one to go out in a week but I'll wait another 2 weeks and if nothing, I'll cancel and ask for a refund.
I'm thinking that since I asked about mine and they replied with what looked to be an uncanned reply, that I'm good.

I wish they'd sell them on the East Coast. I live near Baltimore and it sucks to have them shipped to California and then shipped back east to me.

Yeah, the whole Germany to California thing does not make sense. Maybe someone will strike an east coast distributor deal.

BTW, the guy who sells the ones that I posted in post 254 still has these things. He sells them for $20 plus shipping. To me in the Atlanta area, shipping is $13. He ships them w/o a box with a label stuck to the container. A little soak in OxyClean usually cleans them up nicely and they are safe to use. I don't remember what comes in them, but it was safe...at least the last time I bought them.

Does he have smaller sizes? I'm looking for a 3-4 gal for 2.5 gal batches.
