fermenters on a budget
« on: October 30, 2016, 09:25:12 pm »
Right now I am looking to start a small winery making fruit wine. Right now one of my challenges is finding the right fermenters on a budget. Here are my requirements...

-At least 60 gallons
-Square shaped
-One for primary and one for secondary/clearing and bottling from
-Not too heavy
-I am setting my budget at $400

Not sure if they have small squares but a good site to pickup stainless fittings for a plastic tank.
