Agreed it would need to be pumped out. It looks wider then taller so I am betting it won't fit in my chest freezer. I was stoked when I saw the speidel 15 gallon fermenters but its just too big (15.75 radius and my chest freezer is only 15 ). Just by looking at this one it probably will not fit either.

We will add the weight and dimensions to the descriptions on the website. Until then - the 10 gal is 15 inch diameter by 16 inch high and the 7 gal is 15 x ~14 1/2. The 10 gal is about 8#

I know its a long shot but has anyone purchased and used the 2L growlers? They look like they would be pretty awesome for weekend camping trips. Just want to know others opinions if there are any before putting down the coinage.

He came up to our homebrew club meeting last week and demoed his stuff for us. The mini 'sanke' like growers were pretty cool. He said they are stackable too.

Those sanke growlers look awesome!

EDIT: I just ordered 2 of those growlers. Once received I will post an update and review of product/service. I'm really looking forward to getting these

Nice looking products! I agree the growlers look awesome. Those will be on my xmas list.

Regarding the stainless carboys, how does the lid seal? Does it screw in? And would you be able to offer options like a larger hole in the lid to accomodate a stopper or blowoff tube?

To echo what someone said earlier, with the 10gal one I'd like some way to push/pump the beer out. This isn't something you want to be lifting out of your fridge or chest freezer to rack the beer off. I suppose if you install the ball valve, you could push beer out with CO2 through the hole in the lid (assuming the lid can hold a few psi).

One other concern is that at 15" in diameter, they won't fit in many mini fridges and will be a tight squeeze in smaller freezers. I do kind of wish they were taller and more narrow.

Just my $0.02. Great to see more fermenter options becoming available.

I think it would also be a good thing if the lids were fitted with 2" TC ferrules/fittings. That way we could use other things in them (not just a simple airlock like you do on buckets).

It would also be good to know if ones with TC ferrules (if that ever happens) have a safe pressure limit. Such as 20psi, or something above 0.
