Yeah I see that listing in Ontario...that's a long haul for me just to get a drum, though. I mean with traffic I'm looking at 4 hours probably.

Although, they also have food grade plastic barrels for cheap.


Not sure where I'd put a fermenter that big, although maybe I could use a couple for grain storage.

I don't think I have enough liability insurance to be involved in sending him anything that would involve fire or burning.

I thought about doing complete fire baskets too but because of the size I don't know what shipping would run since I would need to buy boxes to be able to fit it and then the cost of shipping too. With all the pieces and parts and the steel pre-cut it would only involve screwing together the two pieces of expanded steel and the using the bailing wire to attach it to the grate.

I would include detailed instructions too and I did think about a step bit too. I might just sell the step bits separately if there was interest in them. I can get drums very easily but I looked into it and shipping them in about $100 and I doubt anyone would want to do that.

I am not really looking to make much money off of this. I just know that most people have trouble finding the expanded steel and the stainless hardware. I could buy everything in bulk and get it fairly cheap on a per unit basis and hopefully make it easier and cheaper on most people.

I do appreciate all the advice though.

I would only use new unlined drums; a piece of mind is worth the twenty extra dollars you will pay!

There is plenty of piece of mind in a burn out and grinding.

It's pretty complex, you probably wouldn't understand. The explanation would likely go over your head....like a Junior High track hurdle.

I have nothing productive to say. I just followed everyone who wandered in here from the Tap Room.

Ah yes, the imminent demise of any thread created by a TR'er.

Most people have a lot of trouble finding a new or even a "new" refurb drum.

And the air control parts. I am not really sure if it would make sense to add in the weber grates though. They are very redily available, I wouldn't be able to get any sort of bulk discount on them and they would increase the shipping costs. People would actually save money and be better off just going to a store and buying them or getting them on Amazon with free shipping. I could do them though if that is what people wanted but it wouldn't end up costing them a little more.

The main things are the expanded steel and the stainless parts. Most people have a lot of trouble finding them and when they do they are pricey. I have looked into it and if you buy in bulk you can save quite a bit, but you have to buy a lot to do it. Would make it much easier and cheaper for most people.

I am actually working on putting together a price sometime today to give people a better idea if they would be interested or not.
