Winegrowers Supplies - Polythene tanks and Glass carbuoys
If these tanks are not full then, to stop oxidation, you need to put a 'blanket layer' of CO2 gas over the contents; CO2 is heavier than air. It's not expensive to hire a CO2 cylinder, contact your local pub to ask where they get theirs from.
