FastFerment 3 Gallon Conical Fermenter
3G FastFerment is your all-in-one fermentation solution.
Eliminate 80% of sanitizing and cleaning with this affordable all-in-one conical fermentor. Conduct all stages of fermentation in this single vessel. Remove the trub from the bottom of the fermentor instead of transferring all your liquid to secondary. No siphons, no secondary fermenting vessel to sanitize, no extra bungs and airlocks.
FastFerment produces dramatically better results. Start each batch by letting debris settle out into the collection ball before pitching your yeast! Remove the debris, and pitch into ultra-clear wort. Plus, FastFerment minimizes the risk of oxidation and contamination by eliminating the need to transfer to a second vessel, preventing off-flavors and infection. Keep your batch safe from external spoiling factors by keeping it in one place.
Perfect for making beer, wine, or cider.

It works wonderful and I am satisfied and I will recommend it with honor.
So far I like it. I currently have a 2 gallon batch of cabernet suavigon. That should be ready in a couple of weeks. This fall I plan to do a 2 gallon batch of muscadine. I just wish a 5 gallon size had been available when I ordered.
If you are a small batch brewer and enjoy spontaneity and diversity then this fermenter is perfect for you. I enjoyed my first one so much that I had to purchase another! Will recommend (at least one) to anyone interested.
I lost a batch because of when I was unscrewing the Mason jar the lower part of the valve also unscrewed and the ball valve dropped out spilling the entire batch all over my garage floor.
Since it is plastic it retains some odor from the previous batches. Need to re-tape the threads periodically.
I have bought 3 SS Brewtech Mini Brew Bucket (cost more x 2.5). They fit easily in my mini-fridge. Stainless steel no problems.
Had to get a neighbor to make a custom shelf for the FF for my mini fridge.
I split up a Mosaic IPA kit from here and made half of it. .2.7 gallons went in to the fermenter and I used a blowoff tube. Good thing I did, because it was an 8.8% ABV and it bubbled a ton! I have the larger one as well and love them both. I wanted this to make small batches of higher abv beers and to experiment with. I used a larger mason jar and had to rig a setup to raise the stand higher. The lid is the same size as the larger one, so adding my dry hop bag is just as easy. Great fermenters for the price and FastFerment's customer service is outstanding.
