Fantastic fermenter, cheaper than the Brewtech alternative with a better design.

Can the barb on the spigot be changed to a smaller size?
Veronica Gann on Dec 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: yes i guess you could if you want to do like closed transfers!
Can I use this for a closed transfer?
Nancy Niland on Jan 31, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I wont recommend to pressurize this bucket. It is not designed for it. Rather than that, it is a great product.
Is there a temperature limit for this? Can boiling water be poured in to sanitize?
Robert Gonzalez on Mar 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Robert - You'll be fine pouring boiling water into this.
Stopper Size?
Bart J. Mink on Oct 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: #7 according to their website.
This says it has LCD thermometer, but it's not pictured nor do I see a thermowell. Is the thermometer integrated into this, or present at all?
Mark Barry on May 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Mark - The description of the product mentions a "Liquid Crystal Thermometer" which is the stick-on thermometer strip. Also, a thermowell is not included with the purchase of the unit.

Anvil 7.5 gallon fermenter, so close to 5 stars.
Excellent fermenter, I withheld one star due to one of the latches being misaligned (it requires a shim under the latch). Other than that it’s great, easy to clean and drains perfectly!

Love it!
I've been using the fermenter as a secondary bucket. It's really nice because the trub and other bi-products cling to the sides and bottom of the stainless. The valve allows for easy dumping straight to a key. Super easy to clean. Not the thickest stainless but, it really doesn't need to be. I'd buy one again in a heartbeat if I had a multiple brews going at a time!

Good product, I own 2.
Very well made, protects wort from any light sources. This make a great secondary fermenter, and great for layering.

This is a great fermenter
This is a great fermenter. I have bought 2. The only issue I have is the volume markings of the fermenter are off by about 1 quart.
On mine if the volume markers indicate 4 3/4 gallons it is in fact a measured 5 gallons. This is not a big deal to me as I use the volume markings on my BrewTech 10 gallon kettle, which are correct.

Great build quality, could be a bit taller.
Item has good build quality but is a little short compared to other SS kettles, this tends to only be an issue with heating wraps/ferm wraps. Just something to keep in mind.
