About this Product: (TT090) Our 14-gallon tuff tank vessel provides an easy and convenient way to handle any type of fermentation. This vessel comes with an air lock, which can be sealed up airtight. This makes it effective as both a primary or secondary fermenter. The Tuff-Tank Vessel also has a faucet, which can be used for both racking and bottling your wine. The faucet has been strategically elevated away from the very bottom so that you can easily transfer your wine or beer without transferring the sediment. Our 3/8” vinyl hose will fit over this faucet as well.

Space-Saving Shape: The unique square shape of this rugged container makes this vessel a great space saver. This vessel is ideal when floor space is in short supply. With the Tuff-Tank Vessel you can store many gallons in a little area.

Details: This vessel holds up to 14 gallons and can be used for making both wine and beer. The Tuff-Tank is made of food-grade, high-impact polymers and is completely food safe. This vessel is 20” high, 14” wide and 14” deep. An air lock is included so it can be used as either a primary or secondary fermenter and comes with a faucet for mess-free transferring or bottling.

Patented Design: These specially designed tanks have a patented, gliding-thread lid design, which also includes a gasket. This makes opening and closing the Tuff-Tank an insignificant task - No snapping, yanking or prying like some other containers require. Just a quick spin of the lid and rest assured your Tuff-Tank is sealed up airtight and ready for fermentation.

Price includes free shipping to the 48 states and is shipped immediately from our stock.

"Works Great, time after time!" Review by Stultimus (Posted on 11/27/15)

I have used this for years, and not one spoiled batch. Practically idiot proof.

"Just what I needed" Review by Capt. Skid (Posted on 2/12/15)

This is exactly what i wanted.. i make double batches (12 gals) and this is the right size. Well made just as advertised and the screw lid is a big plus. Very nice glad I got it.

"Not good" Review by DavefromJersey (Posted on 10/15/14)

Purchased two of these fermenters after seeing them online and reading reviews. Although modifications can be made to save them, I would not recommend. First, the port hole at the top should be at the very top of the lid. I drilled a new one and plugged the old one. Second, there are two gaskets on the top assembly - one for the screw in lid and another for the piece the lid screws into as it attaches to the body. this gasket leaks! I have calked this peice and permanantly attached to the body. This also allws me to make a tighter seal for the cap which also leaked. Almost lost a 10 gallon batch of Weizenbach but racked it out as soon as primary fermentation slowed down. A bad design to say the least.

"They are not airtight" Review by Tommy10Gauge (Posted on 10/8/14)

I have 6 of the tanks and at least 4 of them are not airtight. They leak air around where the thread part is fitted onto the tank. I have to wrap the tank lid with plastic wrap to keep air out. I gave this information to the customer service folks and they acted no one else had ever reported this problem. And yes gunk from fermentation gets behind the thread part and it is very hard to remove. Is it safe to seal this space with silicon calk?

"Good with caveats" Review by Bob (Posted on 2/22/14)

The tank is a nice size for a 10-gal batches so long as you don't need to move it. Unfortunately it will have some cleaning issues primarily with the lid and how it screws on. Lots of "ribs", for a lack of a better term, on the underside of the lid. The thread part of the tank is securely attached somehow to the tank but it leaves a gap on the inside that's very thin and may be a real issue to keep clean and sanitized. Mine is fermenting now with it's first batch. Once it's done I intend to attempt to seal that gap with something appropriate like 100% silicone or marine epoxy.

"14 Gallon Tuff-Tank Vessel" Review by Ty (Posted on 11/12/13)

Great Product! Works really well, E.C. Kraus was the only place I could find a fermenter of this size, and when I looked on their online site they have one even bigger. Durable and rugged, gets the job done. Planning on buying 2 more.

"I love this thing" Review by beerza (Posted on 9/15/13)

I use it for making beer. You can make a 12 gallon batch. Will recommend

"Most Excellant" Review by Swoop (Posted on 5/2/13)

Very nice. Be careful of the valve on the bottom. Would be easy to damage. That's the only weakness. Wouldn't be as good without it though

"Perfect For 2 Wine Kits" Review by Capt Nemo (Posted on 2/21/13)

This tank is the perfect for fermenting 2 wine kits at the same time. The threads on the lid seal it up tight. Faucet on the bottom is nice to have to. Will buy this again when ready to expand my operation :-)
