Default What type fermenters are these?

Have a chance to get the pair and some extras for $50. I just don't know their value.

I have see quite a few Australian and European brewers use these. I have no experience with them, but I believe that Revvy posted something on those a while back.

They look like Vittle Vaults. I've heard of them used for grains storage, but not fermenting.

I've used them and they're fine. Looks like those are the smaller ones, around 4.8 gallons if I recall. Makes for a weird size batch. Preferred the 8 gallon one. Ended up getting rid of them and just using carboys. Btw, you can get 2 6 gal better bottles new for under $50 and that's the way I'd go.

These are called Tuff-Tanks. EC Kraus sells them.
