I love the carrying handles and the wide mouth top access for ease of cleaning rite up to my shoulder when scrubbing the bottom of the tank. And not to mention the absence of glass and the scarey potential broken glass situation that represents. All in all a well worth it equipment expense in my case
I love my Speidedels.

I'm usually not pushing it as far as volume is concerned so I haven't had actual krausen get up to the airlock. I don't think it would handle a lot of gunk before it clogged.

Me too and for those wondering about a thermowell, going through the stopper doesn't seem practical. I think I'm gonna get a rubber grommit and go through the lid.

Has anyone tried to ferment as little as 2 1/2 to 3 gallons in the 30L fermenter? I read somewhere that it's ok to do that in these things. Not what I'd do often but I like to make some test batches in small amounts or beers I'm not crazy about (for others) in small amounts and am curious about the extra headspace.

Just got word that Morebeer has the 3.3 gal available so I ordered one. Other sizes all look to still be out of stock.

I use the DIY which also has a spigot. I ferment for 3 weeks then bulk prime it and siter gently wait an hour ( while cleaning sanitzing bottles) then bottle.
It works great.
