Morebeer has the blank caps. You need to call or contact customer service to order them. They aren't listed on the website

Cheers.

Nah, I went back and forth with many emails with Morebeer before they said they didn't have them. They do exist though. Just not in the states.

Awesome, I need to get a couple more of those as well. One came with my fermenter, but they're really handy to have around.

Got extra blank caps, need another lid. It's about 4" in diameter goes under the cap with a gasket and has a hole for the airlock bung.

I too am interested in this question. I current have the 30 L and am considering the 20 L as a secondary for 5-6 gallons.

I did read all 50+ pages of this thread, did somebody reply to this and I just missed it?

Thanks,
Mike

BTW: This is my first post. Chronic lurker.

So I'm thinking of picking one of the 120L ones up for our 20 gal batches, but ... How do y'all move them? Or are we pretty much limited to racking out with co2?

Anyone know of something like a big boy brew hauler, (except rated for 200lbs) That we could use to winch it up to let gravity do the work?

If I'm going to have to drill it out, I'll need to find the right size step drill bit.

I know I can put the lid on loosely and ferment that way, but I think I'd like the option of an air lock.... am I right, wrong, or crazy...?!?
UPDATE: I was able to drill a hole with a bit used to create holes in doors.. just found the right size at my dad's... he has all the cool tools!

Any LHBS worth a grain of salt should have tons of sizes of stoppers..mine has from like #2 all the way up to like #14 or something...no idea who would use a 3 1/2" stopper...but they exist. Because stoppers are cut at an inward angle it means stoppers of various sizes fit multiple hole sizes with no issue.
Good info.. the step bits my dad had were too small... but he had a perfect size door knob maker bit thingee....

Worked like a charm... took about fifteen seconds to finish.

Well, let me give a hand to Speidel... the plastic on these tops is really strong... I actually did try a box cutter on it... it might have worked in a couple of weeks... but more likely I would have lost a finger or cut my wrist badly first!


Pretty sure I'm going to order another of these small ones.. they are perfect for the 2-2.5 gallon batches I like making.

Just got one, looks like you could get 6 gallons in safely if using for a secondary. I would expect that is a little too small to be used as a primary for a 5+ gallon batch. Next to the 30 L bigger brother for size comparison.

Bumping an old (and lengthy) thread, but I just bought one of the 30L ones on the weekend to replace my plastic fermenter that I had a recent infection in.

I'm going to re-brew the batch I got the infection in with the new fermenter. These things feel super sturdy!
