Default cheap 10 gallon fermenter?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/10-GALLON-Fresh-Water-Tank-Cargo-Trailer-Concession-Camper-Gal-FDA-Approved-z-/271365213231?pt=Motors_RV_Trailer_Camper_Parts_Acc essories&hash=item3f2ea08c2f&vxp=mtr

10 gallon and food safe, just looking into 10 gallon fermenters that are not going to break the bank. Any other ideas or suggestions would be welcome.

Check around, some LHBS places get LME in these and are willing to pass them on when empty...

not dissing your post at all as that would prolly work, but some other options

Brute trash cans (5gallons and up)


12 gallon bucket (usually in the wine sections of the homebrew shops)


of course a keg (usually $45-50 around here)

Unless you're trying to fit this into a ferm chamber, why not just use 2x6.5g ale pales or 3x5g home depot buckets?

Im trying to fit in the ferm chamber. I want something with lots of room for 5/6 gallon batches my 6.5 bucket cant handle big beer fermentations even with a blow off tube.

if you're trying to fit something into a chamber of sorts. Vittles vaults come in different sizes as well, i didn't think i could find one to do 10 gallon batches (if i ever did) but they have one that will just squeeze into my ferm chamber
