If spiedel treats them like most conical companies treat their products, it may not include the 20% headspace that a batch that size would require, so if a 30L is meant to ferment 30L, then its 36-40L fermenter.

I have used the spigot on my Spiedel 30L to transfer beer from fermenter to keg several times recently. In a nutshell, the spigot is easy to use with a fast clean transfer.

First, I spray the spigot with starsan. Next, I attach sanitized 1/2" ID vinyl tubing to the spigot and let her rip.

It's so fast I overflowed a keg when I turned my back for 1 minute a few days ago. The wife was not pleased.

The transfer grabs a few bursts of yeast when you first start. If you don't jostle the fermenter while transferring, you get clear beer in the tubing after about 1-2 seconds of yeast. When taking the first draft from a keg I still get clean beer after dumping the first half pint.

I see them at BFD is sac so Morebeer isn't the only game. but I haven't seen cheaper than morebeer. I think they are free shipping items as well.

Hmm... Maybe he uses MoreBeer for his wholesale. I know other shops in the sac area have in the past and much of the hardware sold at my current LHBS is fermentap (morebeer's house brand). I needed a carbon filter one weekend (pre-RO) and ran up to an LHBS that I knew carried them. Packaging was identical down to the fulfillment bar codes that MoreBeer uses. MoreBeer price $8, other place price $20.

Breaking mine in today - approx 11 gallons of Porter in a 60L. 
I found a stopper with a lower profile and use the standard airlock.
