FastFerment 7.9 Gallon Conical Fermenter
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.

This cone shaped piece of food grade plastic has transformed my brew day by helping to vastly reduce any oxygen into my wort as well as eliminating the need for transferring to a secondary fermentation vessel. I have had no leaks and am using the mason jar attachment to easily see what’s going on. In short I love this system. I do think they should give you a longer hose as well as include the tasting port and thermometer as part of the basic kit. Also the stand and strap. So raise the price 30 bucks to include all that and you’re still making money so c’mon guys at Fastferment get it together on that score. Great product and highly recommend. Just follow instructions and put plenty of thread tape on and you are good to go.
I usually don’t submit reviews to denigrate a product, but in this case I have to speak out. I have been a home brewer for several years and used fermenting buckets and carboys for my brews and know what the process looks like and what happens in various stages. When my first brew in this fermenter stopped out-gasing after 5 days, I suspected something was wrong. Turns out that the top seal is leaking and won’t hold enoughh pressure to push the CO2 out the airlock. Problem is a poor surface on the top of the fermenter body and a sealing tube (lid gasket) that is too stiff to fill the gaps. Although I have contacted NB about the problem, they aren’t being very responsive and trying to blame anything but the fermenter. Bad form NB. I guess I just have to find a solution for myself.
It will be useful for yeast harvesting and trube removal
Excellent small fermenter. Will not be disappointed. I would change the temp gauge from its current position. Being on the underside of the drip curve makes it hard to read in the stand
So far so good. Ordered a pump as it’s hard to hang on brackets when full!
