I just found the Italian website for these Mr Malt fermenters and sent them an email asking if they would ship to the US and the pricing. I let them know that there would be many people interested if they do. I will keep you guys posted!

Thanks for the info on these!

Question for those that own this type of fermentor.

Is it possible to use a fermawatt wrap on these tanks.

I just pre-ordered mine today when they opened at 9am. The guy I spoke to today said within 2 hours they had 80 on pre-order. Good news. is that the items ship free. He also said that these should arrive and ready to ship by Nov 15th

I got an email today saying they were in stock. My 30 L is arriving next week. I guess maybe they gave preference to people in order of their registering for a notification. Can't wait to use it.

I pre-ordered two 30L. Supposed to arrive in November. Honestly, the thing that I look forward to is the handles. In Phoenix, I have to use my kegerator for fermenting pretty regularly, so the handles will make it easier to get in and out of the kegerator.

Would the 7.9 gal one be to big (to much head space) for doing 5.5 gal
batches , thinking of topping it off with C02 ?

Is not too big, if you are concernd for oxidation in a longer period, after primary has finish you can always remove airlock and put the little "screw plug" and move it to some place a little warmer that will move residual co2 from the beer and fill the headspace with co2. At least that´s what I do and had 0 problems so far

No, CO2 is heavier than air so most of the air gets forced out the airlock during Primary.
The 8G size is awesome - You can put a huge beer in there and just walk away and not worry about blowoff.
