I got my 8gallon today. It's pretty cool. I'm going to drill out the lid for an airlock soon here. I'm a little concern about the plastic seam in the bottom. Looks like bacteria heaven with all those little spots. Are your two like that also?

There is a seam, it's relatively smooth. Drilled out for airlock already thinking of putting a spigot too. Going to do a 6.5 gal low gravity brew in it Sat. I'll post here to let you know how it comes out.

I think the spigot is going to go where the date stamp is. I'll be brewing a batch Sunday

I bottle my batch on Sunday. It works. I cracked it open and got a face full of co2. I like the handles. 6 gallon apa with American ale yeast. I just used an airlock no blowoff tube. I will be doing a hefe in mine next.

Very cool I'm bottling my IPA Sat... It's a nice container.... I also just used an airlock on a 6.5 gal recipe... forgot to take airlock off and as I was undoing the buckle thingy it started sucking thru the air lock caught it before it sucked any StarSan in, I've really got to get me some more vodka!!

Get the 13 gal one! why not?!! I was supposed to bottle last week and when I took my last reading and did a taster it tasted like a hopped ale (this was my IPA) , so I dry hopped with about 2 oz of Centennial hops I think I diluted too much.... from the start, now it tastes great!!!!
