I have made a few batches of EdWorts Apfelwein and have loved every last drop of it. The last batch I did was this weekend (I have been using Motts apple juice for the batches) and just noticed that the containers Motts use are fairly sturdy and made of PTE plastic. These containers also accept common size stoppers etc.

I always need containers to do experiments with, like different yeasts on the same batch, or different spices, or whatever. I am wondering what the community consensus is pertaining to the usage of these containers for fermenting.

it seems this would make a great small batch fermentor!

That could work.


If you want to a slightly larger batch, contact a local bakery.

I just picked up three 2-gallon pails with lids for free. I will make the holes for the stoppers myself.

Tis fun to experiment.

I think the mitts containers would work fine... In fact, brb, need apple juice.
