I'll still keep my eye out, but geez. *frown*
Soemtimes it's best not to think about that lol

I have no room for any more. Once my 15G Fermenter from Apex shows up and gets a test batch through it I think I'm going to order 10 or 15 of those and do away with a ton of my 5G pales and BB's.

Greetings all.
I've been trolling this board for months. I love the recipe for apfelwine( 3 - 5 gallon batches so far). So I been reading this topic. From what I understand that anything more that a +3 printed on the bottom of the jug will leech chemicals into my product which will add a off note to it. I'm just making sure this is correct. So if i get anything with 3 an under I'm good to go. I'm just wondering how many times someone can use one of these bottles.

I'm planning on doing some mass production of beer for the summer and don't want to spend 24 per glass carboy. would these also be good for beer as well? Also the only bottles I can buy has this info on the bottom:

Not to be refilled with any other liquids
Aqualite bottle
Return for refill
7
Pc other
Mfb by
Consolidated container company

after reading through this thread I decided to drop by one of the local Wally Worlds. They didn't have anything larger than a gallon, but they did have some 3 quart spring water jugs. No name on the jug itself besides the label, but they had the 1 in the triangle. any reason that anyone can think of not use them for a small primary?

So... I am a new wine maker and I am struggling with choosing between 6.5 and 7.9 gallon primary fermenters. I know that there are some kits out there that require larger fermenters..but what about the kits that only require a 6.5 gallon fermenter. Will it effect the outcome if I use the the larger fermenter?
