Product details

14G 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’s been over a month, and I can’t get the threaded cone to stop leaking. I’m on my third roll of Teflon tape like they tell you. They need to come up with a better solution or better engineering. I’ll do one more round of tape and then maybe I’ll just epoxy the threads.


    No review possible yet . Won’t be using my fermentor until the Fall for hard cider. Pieces all look well made, but have not tested for leaks yet.

    Complete Garbage. Do not waste your money.

    Do not buy this. Contacted company multiple times about it constantly leaking. Multiple parts did not work or broke very easily. Would not give me a refund either. Wanted me to pay for replacement parts which also did not work. Customer service on their end takes forever. 3-4 weeks for them to contact me back.

    Please contact Northern Brewer's customer service as we will get you taken care of right away.

    Works great. Easy to set up.


    Three rolls of teflon tape and gasket lube and the threads still leak. The union fitting threads leak. The top won't thread on. Last of all the ball valve gasket in the union fitting is pinched and won't open or close all the way making it useless. I spent hours over several weeks trying to get this thing to finally hold water with no success. I highly recommend not purchasing this product.

    Thanks for taking time to write a review! There was a production error on a batch of these making it difficult for the unit to seal. It sounds like you may have gotten one. It looks like we got your unit replaced for you. Feel free to contact us with further questions!
