Thanks!

no. i've had star san in mine for months.

I love mine. These guys are easy to work with and easy to clean. I would never consider anything else at this point, not to way oversell it or anything, but I really like my 60L tanks.

I love mine; I just realized you can cap these suckers like a conical during cooling (as long as you're not still fermenting, I guess). I've had a British pale ale sitting at 40 for about 10 days with it all buttoned up, which is really nice

What's the max you can fit in the 60l?

Could you get 15 gallons in it?

I've got two of these, 30l sizes. In another thread, someone commented on having to much head space would result in oxidation after he saw a picture of mine with 6 gallons of beer in it. Is this something to consider when using these tanks?

It'll fit over 15 gallons of liquid, but if you're talking about fermenting 15 might be pushing it unless you've got a big-bore blow off tube.

I use an extra spigot on the lid as a blow-off tube (that can be closed) but the opening is small and if krausen and leaf hops reached that it would plug up very easily. I don't use the lid strap specifically to give it a place to blow if that ever happens.
