Hi, not being a hater but your pricing is way out of line with reality. What you are asking is what morebeer charges for a heated cooled 27 gallon fermenter. 1 BBL jacketed fermenters on eBay made in USA for $1500!

These are really good looking fermenters btw!

While pricey, they are under what is commercially available elsewhere. For example, Glacier Tanks sells a jacketed 27gal for $2925.

Best of luck with the sale.

I admit, they are a little pricey. When compared to Glacier tanks ( a more accurate comparison and insulated tank) they are far below their price. From experience I can tell that Glacier tanks are also made in China too. The story behind these is I wanted two nice aesthetically pleasing tanks for my bar in the basement. Unfortunately it’s really hard to get a reasonable price on tanks if only two are made. So I had seven made with the hopes of selling some in a group buy type scenario. You can use these as bright beer tanks as well and that was my idea....along with fermentation. It’s just a personal opinion of mine but they ebay ones were not what i was looking for. I wanted ones that looked good...part of the decor. With the un-insulated style you will get condensation I dont want that in my basement.....more moisture...more dehumidifying...if not more mold. Also the insulation makes a big difference in efficiency. I tend to be frugal and didn't feel like paying to have them made in the states (you think Glacier is expensive!) . Since I travel abroad for work a lot (Im a merchant mariner) I did a little traveling in China with my home brewing obsession in mind. I found a factory through a local agent, me with them, contracted them, had them made, and shipped to the US. No child labor and no sweatshop. Im happy with what I got and appreciate the feedback! Im open too offers.

Ok, here's a pic of my 40 gallon jacketed fermenter, not pretty so I get your point! Those do look rather awesome! How do you cool/heat yours?

Well the bar is not much to look at now. Ive included pictures of the framing. With a newborn....two weeks...funds have been well....redirected. How I cool the fermentors...and my trunk line for that matter... is through a copper coil, sump (5gal metal bucket) and submersible (harbor freight...12.99) pump that circulates glycol throughout the system. In order to regulate the specific temperatures of the Keggerator...chest freezer...and individual fermentors...I am using PID controls from Auber instriments...http://www.auberins.com/. The Keggerator operates as the mother ship to everything else being the baseline glycol cooler. The PIDs control lawn irrigation solonoid valves that open and close cooling. The PIDs are cheaper than standard chest freezer Johnson controls and they look cool...plus they have all sorts of options for us engineers...muahahaha. Dont let the thermo couple and PID scare you. They come with directions...you can figure it out.
