Honestly, i don't because the stainless steel he used was from scraps. It's really thick stuff though, the whole tank with stand weighs near 70lbs. Good thing is that stainless plates ~20ga don't cost too much, maybe in 150 in parts. How would aluminum fermenter tanks fare?
As for the top, i'm just going to be drilling a hole small enough to fit a blowoff tube, maybe in the future i can drill two more and run copper lines down it to cool it.
