Even with 7.9 gallon capacity, you think you'll need a blow off tube for a big beer in summer?

come summertime i'll have to use a blow off tube to fit it in my fridge i think. right now i have a carboy in each fridge and didn't want to pull them out to see how it fits with the airlock on, it looked real close.

Thanks for the impressions, eastoak.

Should you add dead mice to primary or secondary?

eastoak, do you foresee any issues sanitizing the spigot sufficiently after its been fermenting in a musty closet or chamber?

no. the back of the spigot is more accessible than a regular bottling bucket spigot. i'll go take a picture of it.

Why is this so much better than a bucket? You can get spigots on those too? I couldnt justify the price. I'm sure they will hold up better and perhaps better designed.

it's not better than a bucket as far as fermenting, i'm trying to see if it can be used as both a fermenter and a bottling bucket which would eliminate one step when i bottle. this tank cost me $45 and a 7.9 gallon bucket is $15.99 plus $5 for the lid. (northern brewer has the same 7.9 gallon bucket for $22.99 without the lid, who knows what they're thinking)
