Probably not all 20 of them but I might be interested in some. How much? Do they come with caps?

Where the hell did these come? They almost look hand-blown lol. I'd think if they are not real heavy, they'd break pretty easily. Don't want to waste 18+ gallons of beer man.

Hand blown yes. Although they are thicker and stronger than one would think. They came from Asia so they were rugged enough to come over without breaking. They are just about as thick as a normal 5-6 gallon one... just bigger. Its not like its 100lbs though
I guess i'm the only one that lifts with one hand

If you were to use this i would say to use it in a place where you wouldn't move it. 8.35lbs a gallon (water) x 20 is some weight.

From the picture those look more like 6-7 gallon carboys, not 20 gallon jugs, assuming that those floor tiles are 12" square. Make sure no other faucets are open in the house, take a reading from the water meter, fill it, then see what the water meter says. That is the actual volume. Also considering that 1 gallon of water weighs almost 8lb, 20 gallons of water weighs over 150lb. Beer is also heavier than water. I do like that they're tinted though, as light can have an affect on fermenting beer.
