Was looking at these on MoreBeer yesterday, and just finally decided to pull the trigger. Seems like overnight they went up from $65 to $89. A 37% increase overnight? WTF?

Yeah, it seems like my 30L was $49.99 a few months ago, but maybe I'm imagining that. Now, they are $59.99. But at least they are staying in stock now.

Damn, I'm pretty happy I picked up 2 60L before they went up $25, but now kinda upset I didn't get 4 of them.

Been using plastic buckets, but after reading about these I just pulled the trigger on a 30L. In stock and free shipping.It will be nice to be able to bypass having to use a blowoff tube.Plus these will be easier to shake up after adding O2. Kind of like having the best of both worlds between a bucket and carboy, but without the negatives.

You will be very happy with your decision.

Sucks the price has gone up so much but these things are nice. I've had 2 60Ls for over a year and I can't imagine using anything else. racking to kegs has been much faster and easier. Used to be paranoid about the spigot but hasn't been a problem for me.

I paid $48 for a 30L on 06/24/2013, would have bought another if I knew they were going up.

Bought a yeast starter kit with it so I got free shipping. Just looked at that too, paid 17.95, now it's up to 22.95.
