Speidel's FD-MKEH Tanks represent the ultimate level of premium wine fermentation: a world-leading stainless steel tank with the organoleptic and stabilizing benefits of oak tank walls.
These tanks use premium quality german oak to produce a tank which provides micro-ox during fermentation, distributes heat effectively across staves, and is less susceptible to fluctuations in ambient temperature. And best of all, this stainless/oak hybrid tank combines all of the benefits of a 100% oak container with easier cleaning and the ability to easily replace staves individually or on the whole as necessary at significantly lower cost than replacing a 100% oak vessel.
The FD-MKEH tank is equally at home being used as a fermenter or a storage tank and can be used with either red or white wines. The oversized top hatch allows for traditional manual pumpovers and punch downs, giving you the ultimate control over fruit handling.
