Description

The Fast Ferment is an affordable conical fermenter that allows a brewer or winemaker to collect sediment in the included collection ball for easy removal. Easy to use and more affordable than stainless steel conicals. 

During fermentation the bottom valve is left open so that sediment will fall into the collection ball. After fermentation is over the valve is shut and the collection ball can be removed without introducing oxygen into the fermenter. Typically with most small conical fermenters if you let trub dump out the bottom air has to come into to replace that volume.  After dumping sediment or trub the collection ball can be reattached and the valve opened again to allow clean yeast to settle into the ball. That yeast can then be used to ferment your next batch of beer. 

If you are a brewer who likes to do a primary and secondary fermenter having a conical that allows you to avoid that transfer is going to save time and reduce oxidation. Made from HDPE plastic care should be taken when cleaning. Only use a chemical cleaner like PBW and do not use an abrasive cleaning pad that could scratch the interior.

  • 14 Gallon / 53L Capacity Conical Fast Fermenter

Needs better fit/finish. Great idea, poor execution.
Two full rolls of Teflon tape and the main valve still leaked around the threads. Next the Seals in the valve itself failed and prevented open/closing. Finally I Installed the tasting valve which leaked from the top (around handle).

Great concept and design. Quality control and fit/finish needs some improvement.

Believe the other posts. The threads on the bottom have the mold lines running down both sides and they are untrimmed. I wrapped the threads with at least 15 wraps of teflon tape. Once I threaded on the valve and added water it leaks. I ended up calling Morewine to let them know I was going to put a pipe wrench on the fitting to tighten it even tighter. They said if it did not stop leaking to send it back. I have tightened with the wrench and there is still a slight leak. Very frustrating. Save the money and headache.
