I have 4 of the 30gal ECO Maturation tanks, usually I rack from one to another, but in the photos above you can see I racked one tank and filled two 54L demijohns. I purchased the first tank in 2010 after my previous two 30gal barrels went neutral, my experience with the tanks so far has been good, I think a barrel is still the gold standard, but the tanks have certain advantages with respect to ease of cleaning, controlled oxygen permeability, new oak of your choice for each batch, and light weight (approx 22lbs). The tanks can be moved full using a dolly, I often shift them around or move them short distances manually by tilting and rolling on the edge, but for the most part I don't have a need to move them long distances when full.
