30 Gallon Food Grade HDPE Tank - Home Brew / Ag - $225 (Navarre)

This tank was purchased new from Indelco Plastics for use as a primary fermenter for brewing hard cider. The stand, tank, and valve assembly cost around $500.00 to set up back in 2016. It has an airlock blow off hole through the top lid for sanitary control. It also has a stand pipe inside the tank so liquid can be cleanly racked off the sediment layer into your finishing or dispensing vessel(s). If you are a home brewer aspiring to go bigger with your wine, beer, or cider this is an affordable next step for the hobby!

I used the 25 gallon mark as my full batch to allow enough head for foam and blow off. Then racked to 5 gallon ball lock kegs and played with the finishing flavors to make unique batches of vanilla, hopped, cinnamon, herbal, etc.

The tank could also be purposed in agriculture or gardening as a water / chem transport or low pressure applicator system.

Would work as a rain barrel too!
