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.

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!

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....

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.
