I would be interested to see if anyone has actually talked to one of the "breweries" that sell wort in these cubes to see if they are doing anything special on them. I am growing to like the idea, but it still seems like it is a lot of supposition on what you can and can't do with anecdotal evidence that nobody has gotten sick or ruined beer yet.

Which ones? There have been a few different US Plastics HDPE units posted within this thread.

These are the ones without caps. There is a "shipping lid", but not threaded.

Ummm, my Winpak came with a cap. It shipped separately, almost a week apart from the container It was threaded.

That is the EXACT same one I bought.

Call them, it comes with a cap, as seen in the photo. They have a new software program in thier warehouse, and the caps ship separate. Like a WEEK separate. I know this, call them.

I mean in the ad it even sayes it comes with a liquid tight cap.

No no, call them... trust me. It comes with the advertised liquid tight screw on cap. You will get it next week.

Well, I thought I would be able to find a container that would work somewhere in town, I mean how hard could it be to find a 5 gallon HDPE sealable container? Apparently quite difficult..... So i will be ordering a couple from US Plastics and trying this out at a later date. I promise I will update this thread when I get around to it

Those are 7 gallons, and If I am sealing wort up to store, I do not want all that headspace. I could brew a 7 gallon batch just to fill it, but I don't have a carboy that size, and even if I did, 7 gallons won't fit in a 5 gallon cornie keg....

I did think about those for a long while today when I started to realize that I couldn't find what I was looking for...

I did find some 5 and 6 gallon HDPE cans, but like the picture I posted earlier, they have a plug type vent on them that I would not trust to remain sealed. If they were screw cap that would be one thing, but I have yet to find one of those at any camping/general store I have visited. I would have thought they would be common and easy to find, but you live and learn...
