BTW.. a little off topic.. but still in the realm of 5 Gallon equipment.

I started brewing with the little 6.5 Gallon fermenter in my avatar.

I haven't seen the like of it anywhere.. I was told it was from an older Mr. Brew or maybe Mr. Beer kit. I can't find any info on it anywhere online, no pictures, nothing. Anyone know where it came from..?

Anyway, I like it as it fits nicely into my kitchen sink and no where near as cumbersome as a carboy, and yet better than a bucket as I can see through it, etc..

Just curious about it more than anything else.. Is it a common piece ? I would like to get another one.

Early Mr Beer I believe. I've seen others write about them. I've never seen on (except in pictures). I don't think you can buy them anymore.

If it is a Mr. Beer, wonder why they went from this marvelously engineered piece of equipment..

To that gimicky little brown keg..?

Had been using a Corny but Better Bottle looks good.
