Hi there, new to HBT (I debated if I should include this question in the newbies topic or here).
I'm assembling a new kit and I came accross a 40L Milk Transport Can, brand-new made of Aluminium, with an air tight lid, O-ring and clasp lock... Similar to the one on the end of the post.
I started thinking of getting one and converting into a Fermenter.
Here (I'm in Brazil) we do not have easy/affordable access to stainless steel conical fermenters so I'm after alternatives to plastic buckets.
Has anyone seen one of these converted to Fermenters?
My initial idea is:
1) acquire the milk-can
2) drill a whole on top and install an airlock
3) drill a whole on the bottom and install a 1/2" spherical ball-valve and spigot
Voila, I have a new fermenter.
Any ideas/Suggetions/critics/comments etc?
Keep Trying, Keep brewing, Keep Happy.
