Speidel Tanks - Dimension verification

Postby jtrainer » Sun Nov 23, 2014 11:21 am

I've been on the fence for a speidel tank for a couple of years now. I'm finally going to buy one and I want that big one (60L) to hold my 10G batches... I see B3 lists it as approx 15.75 inches width. My chest freezer is a tight 16 inches.

Are the B3 measurements rounded down?

Aside from my freezer lid not standing 100% straight up, I imagine I'll have to angle it in to the freezer a little and lower with my winch. Can anyone confirm the widths?

Just measured mine and also got 15.75 at the widest portion, which is actually across the lid.
The bottom slopes inward a bit; so including spigot, I got closer to 14.75 at base.
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

Awesome, it should fit then....

My original hopes were to fit the 60L AND a big mouth bubbler PET carboy, but that dimension is 3 inches too short... I'm just wanting to ferment a 10G AND a 5G in the same chest freezer at the same time...
