If you want simple and reliable, use yeast.
By all means use yeast if you like headaches, heartburn, indigestion, hicups, hangovers, aftertaste, liquor smell on your breath, and a funky tasting liquor, to each his own :D

I've had one for years that I use for drinking water when on camping trips but mine holds 10 gallon. I'd say they could be used for a cooker and are heavy enough to weld on also. I have a facet welded at the bottom of mine.

They have a fitting at the top opening that's easy to connect a SS adaptor to without any welding for one reason.
