Yeah the steel non stainless ones he linked in the first post. I make UDS all the time for friends with the freebies. I wish i could find a stainless one.

Ahh, fair play. I've made the same type of mistake in my late night eBay shopping. I've even ended up buying 1 or 2 things that clearly weren't what I thought they were. Anyway, no harm, no foul.

The big giveaway (other than the price) is stainless ones aren't usually painted on the outside or coated on the inside.

That said: if you find stainless ones for 9 bucks each I'll take 10 of them!

Came in to say the same. I really need to make a second one. I screwed up some of the holes in the other one.

Can you imagine the size of the Brutus that you would need!

Be a pain trying to stir the mash tun though!

If anyone lives in upstate new york theses would be nice if you want to try going over the Niagra Falls!

the scrap yard by me (Columbus OH) had 55 gal SS drums in awesome condition a few weeks back. They would cost what the weight of scrap SS is.

Dang my parents are in Columbus, I don't know if I could convince them to go digging through a scrap yard for me though. Where was that scrap yard?

I know of a source for ex-dunkin donuts food-grade plastic 55 gallon drums. Great for grain storage.

It is called ace iron and metal. If you go just ask to go out to the stainless steel area and they were sitting right out in the open, shinning in the sun light.
