I love my 2 30L's. I've got a blonde just about chilled right now which will be going in one very shortly and the other is 3 days into a ferment now. I'm going to get 2 more. The heck with carboys, tired of them. I'll just use them as special purpose now, mainly cider and scoby ginger beer secondaries.

I have another question on the threaded cap. The ONLY one I could find was on More Beer. Any ideas who else has these? More Beer has them backordered because they said the plastic on the batch they had was faulty...Midwest doesn't carry them and I've checked a few others...

I might have an extra one. Plus I just got two new brehemoths, so i won't use my Spiedel much anymore. IF you're interested.

I'll have to try using the spigot turned upside down next time, what a great idea. For me, what I love most, is the ample head space and the wider opening on top which lends to great "open" fermenting for my English and Belgian ales.

fp, that's weird. I've called them a few times in the last few days, and was told they were having a "porosity problem" with the caps and it would be WEEKS before they got the right ones in. I called today and it turns out they just don't have the thermowells in stock, so the one that are packaged together aren't available, the caps alone are. Bad info on the phone. Anyway, if you happened to have one with a thermowell I'd be glad to buy it. If not, I'll wait a week I guess...thanks for all your great info!

I have a spare cap, but i think i want to keep my thermowell. I used a scrap of 3/8" stainless tubing and a compression cap. Way cheaper than buying one. My ranco probe fits just fine, but my love probe does not........

Well that's a damned clever idea, with the tubing! Very McGuyverish of you... I might try that...
