LOL

They will spend hundreds of dollars discussing whether to allow a 4 dollar sale. Just like the company I used to work for.

I had one once. I found it hard to keep clean. PBW does a great job but without being able to see inside, it bugged me. Other than that, it fermented just fine as long as the spinny tops were on tight. I think mine held something crazy like 17 gallons or something.

A CIP keg cleaner would work well for this vessel. As well as eliminating any possibility of bacteria harboring scratches.

I might actually look into one of these. Unfortunately I wasn't allowed to take the ones at work bc of liability reason since it contained ethanol.

I've got 4 of these waiting to be used. I picked them up locally, they contained juice previously. I have a few different ideas on how I'm going to use them, just need to dial in my new bigger brew system first.

I know pacs and cubes are always a bit bigger then listed...but 17? Wow, I might need to upgrade to a 20 gal kettle lol
