Just ordered 2 30L fermenters myself. Looking forward to the ease of use.

I can't for the life of me find the dimensions of a fully assembled 30L version - with air lock. MoreBeer says 18.5" height without it, but I know that airlock is huge and can't find the dimensions for it alone. Could one of you with a 30L take a measurement for me?

Hey 241,

I just measured one of the airlocks, and it looks like it add's about 5.5" to the 30L fermenter. That puts it at ~26" total with the airlock in.

Hope this helps!

Glad I could help 241! Just keep in mind that 1" is cutting it pretty close! But, I'm like you. If there were 4" of clearance I'd feel like I'm wasting precious space

Good luck, and let us know how that fits / works out for you!

Cheers.

For the record, MoreBeer is by far my fav homebrew supplier. Placed my order at 9:30 am, shipping notification at 4 pm - can't wait to get my Speidel

They are still in stock, just purchased mine. I was going to wait till next week for budget reasons plus so I can get some ingredients to brew right away. After reading this thread I decided to get it now! Would rather wait another week with the 30L fermenter before I begin brewing, than another 6-8 months without it lol...

Hey All,

These should all be in stock now, so if you've been waiting on them now's your chance! We're hoping that our latest shipment will stay in stock for awhile, but can't guarantee anything!

Cheers,
Matt

Hey everyone,

I was wondering: would leaving sanitizer (Starsan) in the Speidel fermenter hurt the plastic?

I just kegged a batch and dumped the sanitizer into the fermenter when I was done with it. I plan on brewing tomorrow so the sanitizer would only be in there for about 24 hours. Any problems with that?

Thanks!
