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. 

Each Fast Ferment Includes:

  • 14 Gallon / 53L Capacity Conical Fast Fermenter
  • Six inch removable threaded top for easy cleaning
  • Solid steel stand with assembly screws 
  • 1.5 in bottom valve

  • Half inch PVC tubing and hose clamp
  • Collection Ball

Overall Height from floor to top of airlock: 41.7 inches / 105.9 cm

Would recommend, but with caution.
**Fit and function review only**
Leg extensions are a must. Shouldn’t even be an option but should come standard with every fermenter.
Tubing clamp doesn’t quite seal off and I would prefer it to be sized like all the rest of the home brewing tubing.
Union valve is stiff but so far no leaks in any part of the system.
It’s awkward to move around. I put mine on a furniture dolly so I can wheel it in and out of my fermentation area.
Used as a secondary fermenter for a 10 gallon batch of my Holiday Ale, and now have 10 gallons of IPA in it.
It is by far better than having to use buckets. Just needs a little refinement in my opinion.

I bought 2 of these and couldn't get either of them to stop leaking, so I returned them.

Cheap plastic
Had one for about a year. This last batch the plastic vlave on the bottom stopped sealing when I try to close after primary. Lost a whole 10 gallon batch. Never gets a good deal at the threads from valve to vessel. In fact you not even supposed to use Teflon for plastic on plastic connections. Safe you self the time and money if your going conical and get stainless. Very disappointed

Great Customer Service!!
Had a issue with the first delivery, BUT their service sent me another replacement. Couldn't be happier. I have two now and I will be purchasing two more for my Christmas present. I am a very small startup wine manufacturer and this has made lifting almost none existent.
The shape of the vessel allows the wine to circulate on it's own. Getting rid of the primary lees is a snap, but put a towel underneath to be sure! No clean = less work!

Credibility
Well I have two, my concerns are obvious in any threaded product it there room for improvement there is but as a stand-alone product this works and work well, the convection motion taking place in the unit is amazing, the Co2 gas’s rising creates a rotation of matter that ensures every atom in the wash/beer is touched..... it don’t get any better than this

The product itself? the only thing I could request is a thicker wall at the base valve thread and the thermo well port other that that I have had the unit go super ferment and push wash oh the air check and 7 feet up in the air and nothing leaked from any of the threads....
