3 Gallon Fermonster Siphonless Fermenter
The siphonless version of the popular FerMonster™ 3 Gallon Fermenter. Perfect for 2-3 gallon batches of beer, wine, cider, mead and even kombucha! The FerMonster™ 3 Gallon Fermenter provides advantages over narrow mouth carboys. The 4" wide mouth makes the fermenter easy to clean, dry hop or infuse. Made from P.E.T plastic, the ribless design ensures that yeast and sediment fall to the bottom after fermentation. The lid o-ring makes the vessel air-tight to keep out oxygen and reassure that your airlock will bubble away without any unwanted seal leaks.
After 3 batches done I really like the Fermonster. I'm a small batch 2.5 gal kitchen brewer so this is perfect. Pour right into the wide mouth from the kettle couldn't be easier. The material is thin as mentioned and typical for PET so I'm careful with the spigot but makes bottling a breeze. If you gel cold crash like me you will see suck back on the side wall but fear not it will pop right out after. also real easy to clean. happy so far with my purchase, good price and shipped on time.
Granted, I am not the youngest brewer around, but 5/6 gallon glass carboys were getting to be too much to handle when full. This lets me make half batches from 5 gallon recipes, is light, and does not require racking to a bottling bucket. True, it must be handled with a little TLC to prevent scratches, and the plastic is a little thin, but all things considered, my glass carboys are pretty much retired like me.
Great little fermenter, nice for small anb test batches.
This is a christmas gift so I can't rate it. Sorry
Works as promised. However the plastic is too thin. Be careful when you move it while full and support the bottom. Also, be careful when you connect the valve, do not over tighten. It helps to soak the washer spacers in hot water before using. Lid gasket was too big to insert into cap so insert it over fermenter. Where were the instructions?
