Description

The Fermonster is a brand new fermenter designed specifically for fermentation. MoreBeer! gave product feedback for over 2 years of development and we think they nailed the design. The large lid allows for easy filling and makes hop or oak additions a breeze. The smooth sides are fantastic for sanitization - no ribs or texture to collect yeast or bacteria. The punted bottom allows sediment to collect to the sides so that you can siphon liquid from the center.  Because they are made from virgin PET plastic they nearly unbreakable and a lot safer than similar glass carboys.

These ported versions come with our plastic spigot (FE347), allowing for easy racking and sampling!

Made from heavy PET plastic, the same material used in 2 L soda bottles, which is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration.  Due to the thickness of the material and the overall geometry the Fermonster does not require ribs or dimples for stability.  That results in a super smooth interior surface that reduces yeast and sediment buildup making it the easiest to clean, most sanitary PET carboy on the market.  The huge 4" opening makes filling a breeze, and cleanup is as easy as wiping down the inside.

These fermentors are completely air-tight and the lids sealed tight with an O-Ring.  Additional O-Rings and Lids both with and without holes are available for purchase, see our You Might Also Need items below.

Wanted a wide mouth carboy this size

Easier to handle than glass, and the spigot should mean no siphoning!

Got it for a kombucha continuous brewing system. Might get more to have on hand to make tepache or other concoctions

I like the idea of spigot to eliminate siphoning.

Does it hold exactly 1 gallon of liquid, or is there additional space for the krausen?
David Basham on Nov 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There is ullage above one gallon for krausen. These were fairly successful and economical for doing side-by-side fermentation trials. However 1) the side walls are thin and flimsy like a PET soda bottle, 2) I did have some trouble getting the spigots to seal, so test those before filling them with fermentables, and 3) I saw no action on the fermentation lock: not sure if the stopper made a poor seal with the cap, or if the screw-top lid seals poorly. Not a big deal but an inconvenience.
