Conical Fermenters are a great addition for your brewery, because they allow you to do both your primary and secondary fermentations in the same vessel. The problem is that conicals can sometimes cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Enter the FastFerment! The "cone" shape design of the fermenter allows yeast and sediment to collect in the bottom of the fermenter. When fermentation is done, simply close the bottom valve and remove the collection ball from the vessel and voila – you have started secondary fermentation! Now you can clean the collection ball and put it back on to finish off your secondary, or you can store it with the yeast in the fridge to use again. Easy as pie.

Great fermenter!
Quality construction, very easy to use! I can't wait to get multiple brews going. I will be adding a third fermenter soon also and It will be another fastferment!

What a great concept but a very bad execution. Product quality is very low. The lid barely would screw down the threads because of the molding ridges. After a half an hour of cleaning off bits of plastic I finally got the lid to bottom out. After my first brew I had to transfer my beer to a carboy because the lid would not seal. The rim of the fermenter was nowhere close to flat. I spent another hour sanding down the rim so the lid would seal. I will need to buy a thicker gasket to get a tight seal. Finally after a lot of fuss and more money I have a great fermenter. I would suggest to FastFerment that they increase the quality of their next batch of fermenters and offer some kind of fix to those who have already purchased one. They might just have a lot more happy customers.

Owner Response: Michael - Bryan here from Great Fermentations. Thanks for the feedback! The issue you are referring to has been fixed! There was a batch of FastFerments that had this problem, and we thought we caught them all before they went out; looks like we missed one though! I'm glad you were able to get it working yourself (as a homebrewer does!), but if something like this comes up in the future, just let us know and we can get you squared away with minimal work! Cheers! Bryan
fermentor is great stand needs work
Love this product but the stand is not tall enough. -when the siphoning tube is connected it is too close to the ground it bends and does not allow proper flow. -when siphoning it sits so low you can't keg or bottle. I'm building a secondary stand. To raise this stand. Stand shi I ld be made taller. I still love the fastfermenter its a great inexpensive tool!

Working Great
I have four and they save me hours of time in labor and fermentation time. They shave at least a week of fermentation time, with higher incubation temperature. I added oak directly to the batch like you would a secondary fermenter. The oak got caught behind the ball valve (union valve) stopping me from completely closing the valve. The Fastbrew Crew replaced it free of charge, which speaks to their product commitment. If you're adding solid flavoring agents I suggest you use a strainer ball or the like.
