Default 15+ gallon plastic fermenters?

I was watching a youtube video a few weeks ago and saw someone with a 15 gallon plastic fermenter with a screw cap and all on it but can't find the video again to ask him where he got it. Does anyone know where I can get such a thing? It just seemed like the perfect item to bulk ferment my all grain beer. I've seen people split their 15 gallon batches in three 5 gallon carboys and the colors were all different and I'm not a fan of that idea.
Thanks for any help.

Nevermind, after more looking for such an item (been looking for a while now) I found a online brewing store that sells them for $18.99.

Ah...just a little medical waste. No worries though, they'll rinse 'em out before shipping.

I seem to remember the guy on the Youtube video I was watching say it was a bulk shipping container for grain... worth asking my LHBS if they get any o them... then I know the history of the container.

Seems to be a bit better. I've got a couple different sizes. Not sure what grade that blue one is you linked, but these are made for wine.

I believe those are the containers that hold bulk Liquid Malt Extract.

Someone is know brews with those, he got them from his lhbs in texas. They also sell them online. He knows that his were used for LME, I would call and ask a supplier before ordering though. He swears by them though

Malt Extract is sold in 15 gallon drums and many of the LBHS stores will sell the empty polypropylene containers. They make great fermenter for 10 gallon batches.
