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.
Thanks for your comments, all excellent ideas. Just wanted to explain the lids on the "Cavern". The lid is a screw on lid with an air tight rubber ring, and yes a larger hole could be installed to accommodate a stopper or blow off tube.

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.

These are all good suggestions. We understand there are many different types of connections and fittings, in the near future we will be providing other options. We do appreciate everyone’s feed back.

So will the 5 gallon carboy also have the same 1-1.5 gallon headspace?

Yes..We are going to also offer aluminum bottles and we did have them posted on the site indicating available January 2013. We had to remove them due to customers ordering them and expecting them for Christmas gifts. So we decided to temporarily remove them. We will re post them when they are available.

Most aluminum bottles today are lined with an epoxy sprayed on liner. The company that I am working with has a dedicated spraying line for this. I am not familiar with any epoxy sealer that you could buy non commercially.

Yes.. all of our "Cavern" are designed to provide more than enough room for fermentation.

It would be nice to have larger photos on your products.

I'm hoping Santa brings me a bottle and growler!

Received two of the keg shaped growlers last week- these little guys are awesome! They hold 2l right up to the neck and seem to be constructed very well. I will be using them this week to bottle- I mean keg - a winter ale.
Even though these are a bit more expensive than glass growlers I like that I can transport these without having to worry about them breaking. The ONLY thing i wpuld cjange is that they wont stack properly when the lid is on. Deep Woods also through in extra o-rings. Shipping was fast, I ordered on Sunday, got confirmation and shipping info on Monday and had them in my hands Wednesday.
Nice job Deep Woods, I look forward to buying more.
