I used to use 20gal LDPE brutes,but a couple years ago I went to 20gal HDPE open head drums with locking collars.

Definitely if I was using 55 Gallon barrels I would probably do the same as johnT.

Step/pic3: press through a strainer and into the tank.
That's a lot of pvc in your process, surely you don't want to be ingesting all of the toxins, so just send your wine to me, I'll pay the shipping, store it in a safe place (55F and 70%RH), and dispose of it properly over time, LOL!!!!!!

You don't have to be childish. Use whatever you want.

It's not that difficult or any more expensive to spec out use the correct materials.

Rest assured that neither difficulty nor expense are an issue for me. Until I see empirical scientific evidence that wine passing briefly through PVC is contaminated, my opinion will continue to differ from yours about what are "correct" materials for a specific application. I hope you can respect our difference of opinion.

Getting my ducks in a row for fall. Went ahead and made one of these PVC strainers for transferring a primary full of skins, seeds, lees etc. I swear I started with the best intentions and wanted it all nice and uniform but got a little carried away with the "gajillion" holes- almost finished.

Also got my new fermenter delivered from Amazon for a great price. But Needless to say I'm not loving the "USDA Condemned" written across the sides of the can, but whatcha gonna do? I checked before and after the order and is certified to NSF standards This was a very insightful thread for me and I really did learn a bunch (and pictured always help too). Hopefully other people can benefit as well.ImageUploadedByWine Making1502758413.253942.jpg

Do you understand the last sentence in Spanish? Why would you think this is food grade in any way shape or form?

From this in the description of the listing. ImageUploadedByWine Making1502760333.878260.jpg


And this website after I received it
http://www.rubbermaidcommercial.com/rcp/

Maybe I'm wrong. But I was led to believe it is food safe. "Condemned" poultry and beef containers but still in compliance with NSF standards. No?ImageUploadedByWine Making1502760796.519141.jpg
Website copy and paste didn't work I don't think. Here's another screenshot. I thought I was in the clear ImageUploadedByWine Making1502761050.330544.jpg

What markings if any are on the can?

Amazon can make mistakes quite often when one description for an item gets carried over to another "similar" type item.
