Any plans on bigger growlers or some kind of growler tap?

Something in the 8-10 liter ranger would be great for us small batch brewers. 2.5 gallons corny kegs are nice, but having a system designed specifically for homebrew instead of repurposed soda gear is long overdue.

What is the size of the opening for the 7 gallon, and what is the height? Wondering if I'll be able to fit an immersion chiller in there.

The height of the 7 gallon Cavern is 15 1/2" and the opening is 6" Dia.

Thanks,

What's the internal welding situation with these? Any chance of photos of the inside? Wondering how clean it is in there in terms of nooks and crannies. What welds/joins are there inside?

Our Caverns are neatly/cleanly welded and very easy to clean. We take pride in the quality and safety of our products.

Cheers!!!

I can state for a fact they are nice smooth welds and clean easily.. I bought a 7.5 gal and use it as my secondary. It's friggin awesome. As something to condition or lager in long term nothing is better. Also fits into a standard refrigerator with out modifying the door or anything.

If they could make see-tru stainless steel it would be my primary. But I have to watch my Yeast make babies. So I still use a product no one makes anymore. But I find to be an awesome primary. http://www.homebrewtalk.com/reviews/early-mr-beer.html

If my only choices were between, the cavern, a carboy or a bucket.. Hands down it would be the Cavern.

Has anyone tried "no chill" brewing with one of these? Either boiling in the cavern or transferring from the kettle to the cavern, sealing overnight, and then pitching yeast the next day?

If you take the ring off the bottom you can use it as the kettle.. and the seal is pretty nice.

I would say "no chill" wouldn't be a problem.

I have transferred from kettle to it and put it in the lager frig to cool till the next and it worked great.
