    Be aware that unless you add some texture to the epoxy it will be extremely slippery when wet.

    over 20 yea...

  • Posted in thread: has anyone used these? (cheap small batch fermenter) on 07-19-2015 at 12:47 PM
    I was asked to brew a porter for a wedding. I bought 4 of these to brew small batches of

    but used a siph...
