I use the 20 and 30 gallon Brutes for my brews. Definitely makes prep and cleanup much easier than multiple vessels.

I just got a 50l keg off of a scrap metal truck. Any tips where to look for info on using it for kegging.

The vittles vault works very well and fits nicely in a chest freezer. This one can do ten gallons:

I used one of these for cider. one thing i learned is you really have to force the lid on for a good seal but other then that its a good fermenter.
