I only recall seeing the big ones. These were used in the pharma industry and had empty capsules or something in them. He was advertising them as home brew fermenters when I originally bought mine.

I have seen 2g I believe, and 8g. Might be better off with a better bottle for the size you want.

Both 60l fermenters were shipped today. I'm a happy camper!

I emailed morebeer. I got the 7-10 days replay. Hopefully it'll get shipped soon. I can't wait to try these puppies out!

I ordered October of last year (2012) and mine showed up today (2/12/13)! This looks to be a solid fermenter. I filled it up with water and it didn't leak at all, even upside down. It's very heavy when full, but that is to be expected. I'll be brewing up 10 gallons to put in it this week, for sure.

I love my Speidels. I highly recommend them.

Woo hoo! 28 minutes after receiving a response to my order inquiry, I received the email that my 11/26 order had shipped! Coincidence? Perhaps.

It's here! How quickly I'm willing to forgive. These are very nice.

The lid seems to have a bit of fiddling needed to open, but really well-built. I'll have to buy a standard bung so I can use a shorter airlock. Otherwise it won't fit in my temperature control freezer. But the bung and oversized airlock that's included is great. Just wont work for me at this time of year for me on something so big.
I just finished scaling up an IPA recipe to 10.2 gallons. I just need to find some time to brew it!

I've posted this a couple of times in this thread but maybe you haven't seen it. This is what I'm doing so that it will fit in a small chest freezer.
