My new stainless steel fermenter

The new fermenter arrived. After months of waiting, it finally came in, and it is beautiful, stainless and big. I knew that it was going to be big, but standing next to it, it really hits brought it home. 500 liter doesn't sound so big, but when you think about it in gallons, 132 gallons is a lot of wine.

Fortunately, it is a variable capacity tank, so I don't need to use the entire capacity right away.
Maybe next year.

Congratulations on your new fermenter! And, with the passage of time, how are you liking your bladder press versus the traditional basket press? My husband is agitating to go that way, although I love the look of the basket. Am I being a Luddite?
