It's the FOB I'm worried about. The price for the fermentor is good but I think shipping would eat up any savings unless you were able to buy them by the container load. Any idea what shipping would be?

The company said that if we do get at least 10 fermenters he will start lowering the price of the fermenters.. So anybody.. They do come in all sizes for whatever you need.. So your request can be made for whatever size

Nice lookings units, they come fully polished like that? Also do you think these will be able to hold pressure? Thanks.

I'd be worried about quality, and they're return policy. It is china after all. Can they come jacketed?

+1 to this and the FOB. I make my living importing cheap automotive crap from Asia and the Chinese will try just about anything to save a penny.

I would recommend seeing if they have any referrals from US customers. Possibly someone you could hitch a container ride with. Or, hookup with a reputable local importer that could help you with some homework and warranty for little overhead
