Would this work as a primary fermenter?
 
Probably going to upsize my batch this fall again. :cross:

Would this work?

You'll probably be fine, but keep in mind that beer/wine/cider is acidic, and water isn't. You're not really supposed to store acids in plastic only made for drinking water. Chances are good that it could safely store alcohol as well, but I'd double-check with the seller or manufacturer first, if it's marketed specifically for drinking water.

I wouldn't keep it in the primary for longer than the fermentation lasts.
