I'm seeing the price as $128 for one. If you order two, the price each is $111. How did you arrive at $80?

That's because they were on sale when I posted the link. So that's how my math works.

I unfortunately did not, my wife might have killed me. I already have four 10 gal fermentors mixed in with a bunch of other carboys and buckets.

Please bear with me if this is a stupid question; but when bottling directly from these, how do you add the priming sugar without stirring up the trub? I would like to skip transferring to a bottling bucket if possible.

I dont bottle, but maybe you could use carb tablets instead?

Has anyone seen these or similar stateside? I've seen a few similar vessels to these but all are in Europe. There has to be a company here in the US that makes these or imports them for some other industry. I have one very similar to this that I've had for many years (10+) except it has a green lid and black spigot. I love it but cannot find any replacements.

i bottle directly from my speidel tank and i add the priming sugar right into the top. it might stir up the bottom a bit, hard to tell since it's not see through. i don't worry about a little bit of trub since it packs down with the yeast you have in the bottle anyway. the first couple of times i tilted the tank back on some shims to avoid the trub collecting by the spigot and now i just turn the spigot on full blast for about 3-4 oz of beer, then bottle.
