FastFerment 7.9 Gallon Conical Fermenter

Tired of using multiple vessels for racking off dying yeast? 

Consider the benefits of this conical style fermenter:

**No racking is needed. Primary and secondary fermentation takes place in the FastFerment™; minimizing potential for oxidation and contamination.

**An integrated thermowell and FastFerment™ thermometer allow you to keep your brew at the ideal temp.

**Additional (OPTIONAL) collection balls enable the brewer to harvest their own yeast.

**Use gravity to fill your bottles right out of the fermenter.  An attachable 1/2" hose barb fitting allows for bottling right from the FastFerment™.

**The 6" opening makes for easier cleaning than the traditional small carboy mouth
The FastFerment™ cuts down on storage of multiple vessels

**FastFerment™ is easily mounted on any wall in your house with just a few screws (hardware included) and a moment of your time.

With these great features it's easy to see why the FastFerment™ will not only save you time and space, but also save you money.
 FastFerment™ comes complete with a 7.9 gallon/27 Liter conical style fermentation chamber, wall mounting brackets and hardware, collection ball, Econo-Lock, 1/2"  hose barb fitting, on and off valve, tubing with shut-off clamp, thermowell and a gasketed lid.

Not impressed
I purchased this about a year ago. I have fermented 3 batches in this. I taped every thread on it but have never been able to get the lid to thread on correctly or tightly. I even used additional tape from another roll on the lid. The second batch blew the top off. Yes, I did have a blow off tube attached. I wanted to harvest the yeast so I kept the bottom closed for the first couple of days. My plan was to discard the bottom weaker yeast and then recover the next couple of days of floculated healthy yeast. But when I opened it, nothing came out. I guess the hole is too small for this method. I eventually got it out but I had to lightly pressurize the fermenter, ie blow in it a couple of times. My third batch, same results. The lid didn't blow off but it leaked all around the threads and ran down the fermenter. Again, the yeast cake is stuck in the bottom and not draining out. I do not recommend this product over any other fermenter.

So glad I put a hole in my carboy
Well, not glad to ruin a 6.5 gal glass carboy, but I would not have bought a Fast Ferment fermenter if I hadn't. I just finished my first batch in it and am amazed how much time and work it saved. No siphoning, no carboys to try and brush clean and no sediment in my keg; perfect. Thank you, I recommend Fast Ferment wholeheartedly.

Great Fermenter
This is a great fermenter. I've been a little leery of plastic. I'd prefer stainless steel. However, the cost is prohibitive. This meets the budget and is engineered very well. Only two criticisms: 1) I'd like to buy it without the thermowell. That is just another thing that can accumulate gunk and is difficult to clean without disassembly. 2) The thermowell was not threaded properly. I had to use a significant amount of tape to get it to seal correctly.

I love the ability to drop my yeast and cleanup is super-easy with the wide mouth lid. I will never go back to carboys. Saving yeast for the next batch is amazingly easy.

I am in love like my first batch of HB, this is such a great product. Cuts down on cleanup and equipment needs substantially. Great product, awesome features! I would recommend this to friends and have lol.

This item alone will make my beer taste even better because of the way this item will handle my primary and even secondaries. I saw their stand at the National Homebrew Con and fell in love!

Easy Peasy!
Just finished my first brewed batch and it turned out great! What's not to like? Harvest your own yeast, no need to transfer for secondary, easy to keg when mounted, and easy to clean. I'm going to brew more frequently now with this!

Terrific Fermenter
I have used the typical fermenters: buckets, plastic carboys, and glass carboys. Although nothing is wrong with using those, I didn’t like how much time it took me to sanitize and clean the equipment before and after use when I transferred to the secondary or to the bottling bucket. With the Fastferment you do not transfer so I saved that time. Changing out the collecting ball is very easy and takes me less than five minutes to remove the ball, clean and sanitize it, and reconnect it. When putting it together, take your time. Read the directions and use the thread tape. Then fill it up with water to make sure you have all the threads tight and that it does not leak. You do not want to find a leak in it when it is filled with wort. I have the stand and thermometer and am happy with both. Even though the fermenter comes with the wall mount, I recommend the stand to use when you are filling it. Adventures in Homebrewing sells all the accessories and extra seals if you need them.

Very easy to setup and put together. Also purchased the stand, was concerned about temp control. Brewed my first batch primary to secondary to keg, what a time saver. Simple and easy. I highly recommend picking up one.
