The FastFerment 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 of the FastFerment 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 FastFerment. 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.

Is the value assembly available for replacement? The handle popped of the current one and the valve is very difficult to operate.
Thank you!

Better options out there
Couldn’t get it to seal. Tried the whole screw it on and off 10X, used pvc tape, still leaks.

Kind of a let down
Brewed 2 batches so far and here’s my take: if you take your time and wrap the threads with a couple of wraps and tighten carefully, this won’t leak. The top could use some “wings” to help when tightening and loosening. My biggest complaint is the valve. Right when I got this, I read how the valve could be a problem with sticking so, I took it apart and liberally lubed it with keg lube. It was fine for the first batch but did get stuck on the second one. Also, the opening on the valve is so small that it gets clogged too easily. I took a suggestion from another reviewer and bought a brass rod to help ‘clean’ the valve when dumping trub. I’ll keep it but won’t be getting another.

Poor thread connecting points allowed leaks.
Each connection leaked even after applying second application of Teflon tape . Had to tighten to a point of almost stripping to seal.

Not worth it. Sad to say.
Would like to take a moment to tell you about my experience with your fermentation container. I have bought it about a month and half ago. After my first batch was done. I put in the second. Turned the valve and the handle broke off. Then once I had my new beer I brewed. I saw it was leaking on the seam of the container. It wasn't around the threading it was actual container. I had to do a emergency transfer into my glass container. I have just had nothing but a head ache and not a worry free time. I Have to keep my eyes on it. I feel it wasn't worth the money. And I'm very unsatisfied with this product.

No fuss makes up for some minor problems
This fermenter is super easy to use and clean. I'm on my fifth batch now using the FastFerment 8 gallon with the accessory stand and I can say that I've seen both sides of this product.
Plus: very light and easy to handle when empty, which makes cleanup a breeze. The large lid lets me scrub the inside clear to the bottom with nowhere for the crud to hide. No need to transfer beer into a 2ndary fermenter, just drain the ball; just like the ad says.
Minus: The lid seal is terrible. I've taken to duct taping the lid to prevent gas from escaping and oxygen/wild bugs from getting in. Also the ball valve is *very hard* to operate, stopped using the included handle and now operate the valve with a box-end wrench. No amount of keg lube has helped; it's just not a good valve. Thinking about replacing with one from the local plumbing supply...

The Best Non-Stainless Fermenter On The Market
With all the available add-ons, this unit is a real pleasure to brew with. The trub collector really lends to a smooth result & eliminates the need for a secondary fermenter transfer! Just all the way around a perfect system for any beginner in the home brewing game.

Best plastic conical! Great customer service.l!
Not only is this a great product, the customer service is wonderful. I purchased this conical fermenter and about a year in the ball valve was malfunctioning. I emailed the company directly and within a week I had a brand new ball valve kit on my doorstep! So awesome! I highly recommend this for an inexpensive east to use fermenter.
Love my fast ferment 7.9 gal conical fermenter!

It is working very well for me!
Just completed my first brew on this system! It is bottle aging now, but the process of getting it from ingredients to fermenter, from fermenter to bottles was "a hell of a lot easier"!

Reading other reviews, I was very concerned about the top lid seal. Nothing to worry about! I had gas escaping from the airlock within 6 hours after yeast inoculation! Second fastest detectible
yeast activity I have ever had!

I spent 2 weeks giving this unit a good shake down as the manufacture suggests testing for leaks. (Honestly, I was nervous about trying it!) This is the cost trade off! Labor to make a careful product inspection & test against the impulse to just "go for it!"

On my own, I darkened the measuring lines on the outside so they contrast against the body to make them more easily readable.

I installed the sampling port & it drips through the spigot about 1 drop every 5-6 hours. A keg lube fix!

The stand, thermometer & carry strap are perfect. The thermal jacket is not easy to install using the stand. Going to rest mine in a potted plant stand so I can move it between the kitchen & cellar. I will have more room to install / remove the thermal jacket in the kitchen.

I hope the next 200 brews off this are as good as the first!
