Default Check out these new fermenters

I got these old milk receiver jars out of an old barn, turned them into really cool fermenters.

Pretty cool! How do you get the beer out?

You could turn this into an instruction guide for other people that may consider doing this.

There is a valve at the bottom, I put some tape on the spout, just in case of leakage. They where in a old milking parlor that my friend owed, and he was selling the farm so I grabbed 3 of these.

Very cool vessels.

They are glass, right? How thick is it? Are they 5 gallons?
That little spout or nipple on the top looks so fragile. Surprised they survived the years.
