The cover seems well made, is very sturdy, and provides a better way to lift or carry a full fermentor. That being said, in it's current form I am not a fan. Although it does have a viewing window which is covered by a velcro flap, you are still looking into a black space. Using a flashlight helps there.
Also, you cannot see below the view port. This means you cannot see the trub level. You also cannot tell when you go to drain the trub if you have gotten all of it, some of it, or how badly you stirred it up when you opened the valve.
Also, when the fermentor is in use (full) there is no way to remove this cover. As the lower opening of the cover fits the fermentor neck and is smaller than the attached valve, the cover cannot be removed during use.
Whoever designed this clearly did not think through all the steps or use it during a fermenting process.
With some design improvements I think it could be a very nice cover. In the current form it is problematic.

Great fitting Cover!
Fits this unit perfectly and makes lifting the unit much easier and safer. I am very glad I paid that extra for this unit.

Does its job, but a tight fit
This makes it easier to carry the catalyst tank and stand. Maybe I didn't install it correctly, but it's a bit of a tight fit and doesn't cover the entire tank, as it leaves a little bit of the top part exposed. I did remove it to clean the tank after my most recent brewing, so I will take a closer look at how it fits this time. I like it a lot!

So Easy to Use, View, and Carry!
This was a snap to put on and use. Next test will be to see how easy it is to carry the full fermenter to my fermentation fridge and then out again. Time will tell. Love the view window.

Could be better
I like the catalyst but i think the cover could use some improvements. It has a window to view your fermentation but I'd like to be able to see whats going on in the bottom cone as well. Also I'd like a future version with some pockets for icepacks as the unit is to big for a standard size refridgerator.

A must have for the Catalyst System.
Very strong and durable. I was worried about it tearing or being cheap but its not and well made just like the Catalyst system. The Velcro window is nice too. It also has Velcro straps to lift the base up with it as you carry it. A must have!

Very nice accessory
It goes on real easy and has convenient carrying straps. Make sure you put it on so that the Velcro door is above the gallon marks.

BEST ANSWER: These products are not compatable, a heat wrap should never be covered.
Ccan you cold crash in this unit?
james y on Jun 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: My answer is yes. I think James' question should read 'Can you cold break in this unit?. Cold break is the proteins that coagulate and fall out of solution when the wort is cooled. I filter the wort into the " Catalist fermenter" and when the proteins also called trub settle into the mason jar you can turn the valve off and empty it and put it back on and open the valve again.This eliminates the need for a secondary fermenter. I like it a lot!!

I know that it's designed to keep the light out but will it also help with raising the wort temp a degree or two?
Brian D on Mar 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Brian,

The Catalyst Fermenter tank cover provides an an added layer of insulation and contributes toward maintaining a more consistent temperature during fermentation. Expect the temperature to rise a couple degrees with the use of the cover.
Does the cover attach securely to the base or do I need another set of hands for relocation?
A shopper on Feb 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The cover passes through the base, so if you are relocating the whole system and using the stand to do so, there is no need for extra hands.
Lifting by the carrying straps of the cover will not move the base.
Where do you get spare parts? I've somehow lost the piston in the sedimentation removal system.
