Default New Primary Fermenters

Hello everyone,

Today our new fermenters came in today. I bought some 7.8 gallon ones a year or so ago and they are just not working on some of our fruit wines we are making. Just not enough space for everything.

So I found 10 gallon Brute Rubbermaid trash cans on eBay. Got them all washed up and ready.

I am super excited!

don't you worry that there may be a bleeding of elastomers (or whatever they are called) into your brew?

We got the white ones, they are food grade, we put paper cups between them when we stack them so a little air can get in between then when they are not in us. You had to wash them because they were used to do what? or were they new and unused? We like to use the drill mounted stirrer, you can really crank it all the way up in a Brute. Good buy! WVMJ

Nope they are food grade.

I have never heard of a 'food grade' trash can.

They don't, they make a food storage container that is commonly used for trash...feel better about that?

Then you've never heard of a Rubbermaid brute.

How do you keep the lid on during fermentation?
