Default Giveaway/New Product - Grain storage or fermentors

Hey guys and gals,
We were able to source a "new" product that I think there has been a lot of interest in on here in the past. It is a 15 gallon airtight container that are great for storing grain in and can also be used as a fermentor. I am able to source them locally and can buy them until they are gone. They were used to import rice wine in from China to the US so although I cannot say they are foodsafe, well you make your own judgement as to if they are or not. When I get them I clean them out with a hot water rinse but they will still have a wine-ish odor to them. A good soak in bleach water will take that away. I ferment in a few I have had for awhile and I do not notice any off flavors in my brews. I ferment 10 gallon batches in mine. These are, I am almost sure, the same ones Jamil uses.
What I am looking for is if there is any interest and if so, what price point would you be willing to pay?
As another incentive to have someone look at them and give a review, I am going to give away 3 of them to random Facebook friends on January 2nd. You can like our page anytime before that and you will be in for the drawing. I will notify the winners via Facebook. Existing Facebook freinds are eligible as well.
Here is a link with pictures.
Please let me know if you are interested and about how much you would be willing to pay for them.
15 inch diameter X 24" height Will hold a 55+ pound bag of grain with all kinds of room left over!
Thank you!
Jeremy

I won't kick out a price because to be honest Jeremy you are always fair. If you would like someone to test them out, shoot me a price for two shipped a few hours my direction

First week of January I will send over the $$ so I can get my hands on em.

What are the approximate dimensions? Wondering if it will fit in a standard chest freezer.

I would interested if the price was right. Are the handles secure enough to lift 10.50 gallons of wort?

Absolutely. I drag mine around with 11 gallons in it and have not had any issues. Ive lifted them several times as well. Good thing is if the handle failed you could always engineer a stronger handle as it is very beefy at the handle attachment point on each side.
