I have two of these, really dont want to cut them. They are triple rinsed and very clean on the inside, any ideas?

Interesting, where did you get them and what were they used for if you don't mind me asking?

Do they have the brewery name embossed on them? Do they want them back?

Bought them from a guy on CL, he said they hold some chemical for the company he works for. Its been a year or so but I think they get washed with nitric acid and then triple rinsed with something. If you look inside they are spotless and they dont smell like anything.

I think they would make great fermenters. If you find anything else out about them that could help someone else track some down, such as capacity or what they were used for and to store please post it. And keep us updated on what you do with them

Cheers
