I gather back in the 70's-80's there might have been aluminum ones for awhile, but they are pretty rare now-days. Ones you see now are almost certainly stainless steel.

Some are plutonium, still others are made from earwax. Beware.

There was a guy that posted the other day that he had one with a plastic lid. I thought he was crazy, until about a half dozen others chimed in and told me the plastic lids were common from the actual Cornelious company in the 80s.

Primary #2 - Florida Weiss
Primary #3 - Kane-DOH APA (Honey Citra APA)
Secondary #1 - Downtown Flanders Brown (brewed August 2012)

Keg #3 - NONE!
Bottled - NONE!

There are some newer plastic ones, and some older ones that are aluminum (both are different shapes than standard sankes), but for the most part, a standard looking metal sanke is stainless.
I can't be arsed to keep up this list of what's in the fermenters, but hey, check out the cool brewery I own! .. ..
