I think it weights about 15 pounds... 11 gallons in there - roughly 88 pounds = 103 pounds. Hey... I work out... just don't have to on brew day!

Yeah I know... I don't want to think about cleaning up all that glass, or how my foot would feel with 100+ pounds dropped on it.

That looks EXACTLY like our dog food containers purchased from Petco, PetSmart or similar. Now I see the US Plastic link has been provided.

Reason: US Plastic link.

I use these

Not sure where in California you are but I get these for free from a local dairy farmer, they come with sanitizer in them. They are looking for people to take them so they dont have to pay to get rid of them.

+1

I've been using these. My LHBS sells them for cheap. The malt extract they receive frequently arrives in these, so they have them available frequently.
