Seems like the opaque ones would be better since you could see the liquid level. Although, do you really care?

That looks awesome! I have been looking for something like that since I do 10 gallon batches pretty much exclusively anymore.

Anyone that is interested should ask their LHBS if they sell the old LME bulk containers. at www.homebrewhq.com they sell them for 5 bucks.

Amy Winehouse disagrees. I think you could stick her in there head first.

I agree, plus it would add to the problem of cleaning and sanitizing. The 1/2" Auto Siphon is the way to go. I can't wait to rack my Saison after 10 days of fermenting. It's sweet as the temp fluctuates from 85 during the day to 75 at night, just like a French Farmhouse in the summer. Oui Oui!

Too funny!

My local brewery is coming out with a Saison this month. I'm going to give it a try.

I've been fermenting around 77°F lately. Having a beer that likes the higher temps would be nice.
