Postby iOnaBender » Mon Jun 14, 2021 4:29 pm

Hi AD's

After running FSD Mac 5 SSG I have quickley found my storage is inadecquate/rapidly bieng filled, what are y'all storing your hearts or feints in other than 5ltr demijohn's?

Thanks in advance

I use the 3 litre storage jars $5:00 at the reject shop mate.
You just need to be careful of the seal that comes with it as I don’t think it is alcohol safe

I was lucky enough to see a huge box of 2 litre port bottles at the bottle dept and offered $10 for the box, the final price was $18 which worked out to $1 a bottle and got 18 of them. After a good washing to remove the labels etc I did see the lids had a seal which wouldn't be any good so I just cut some silicon sheet to fit inside the lids and after screwing down the silicon stays in the lid. So these 2 litre bottles make for excellent storage and some are now used for ageing some of the brandies I made.

Lol
That’s the Stig we know more power lol.
Go large or go home.
I must admit the bigger kegs make storing low wines so much easier. I have been lucky to get a couple of 30 litre stainless kegs which has made storage far more practical

Also use these, replace the seals with 3" alcohol safe triclamps and your good to go, or alternatively wrap them with teflon tape

Any glass or ss thing with a suitable lid, that costs less than $1 per litre of capacity is my yardstick

Hard to beat a 50l keg $$ wise if you get it for $30-40

5l demis come up cheap from beer/wine/cider brewers... keep looking on gummy and market place, imho any more than $8 for a sh one is too much. More often you look the better chance you snag that bargain, Got 5 for $20 about 4 months ago. :cool:
