They can be what ever shap you want as long as they are food grade and no chemicals have been stored in them that could permiate the plastic and then leech into your wine.

Yup, I used to use square buckets kitty litter came in for gallon batches that were the same plastic as the round fermenters. No issue at all.

Just as long as you got to the kitty litter before the cat did.:)

The only problem with square buckets is that when you're done you will have to find square bottles.:p

All those little yeasties get used to the corners, and they will get tired out if you put them on a circle track.:d:d:D

Hey Mike, I live with three cats and they resent that. You outta see the way they look at me when the wine is making all those funky smells. At least for now they blame each other!!!

Troy... what kind of yeast are you using? I know Montrachet is notorious for it's elephant farts if you don't use enough nutrient.
