Description

The Ported 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 6 gallon size is great for most fermentations, and the larger 7 gallon is available for even bigger beers. The punted bottom allows sediment to collect to the sides so that you can siphon liquid from the center.  Because they are made from vigin PET plastic they nearly unbreakable and a lot safer than similar glass carboys. Also notice the conical top which reduces surface area if you plan to store beer or wine long term.  

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.  Fermonsters are easily moved by hand or consider using our Carboy Carrier for even greater ease of use.

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.

  • 4" wide mouth carboy - easy to clean!

Love them
These are so much easier to clean that the competitor's version with all of the dimples. My first Fermonster was great, but the second, with spigot is even better. The lid removal tool is a must.
Love the Fermonsters. Even more with the spigot.

Awesome!
I own 6 Fermonsters. They are pretty much the ideal fermentation vessel in my opinion. I use a #10 breathable silicone airlock.

Clear. Ported. Wide mouth. Lightweight. Safe. Compact. Punted. Low oxygen permeability. Can do pressurized transfers. Seal well. Inexpensive. Designed to minimize headspace. What more could you want?
Want to harvest the yeast cake? Swirl and pour.

Warm PBW soak between batches to clean and remove flavors.

Amazing device. Only issue is you have to tweak the spigot for a bit so you do not get any leaks.

Wall of the fermenter is too thin.
I bought two of these plastic fermenters.

Positives:
The volume is ideal for a 5 gal brew and the large mouth is great for cleaning.

Negatives:
The plastic is very thin and one of the spigots is very difficult to open and close. It may improve once the parts wear.

They were on sale
They are a 6 gallon Carboy. But poorly made. On the side of the container there supposed to be stamped showing a 6 gallon and a 5 gallon level. But were not pressed enough to to show. And the lid gasket is a little too large to fit correctly.
I would suggest they go back to the drawing board and work a lot harder to put out their product.

Hello Ken - On the product page, we offer a great video explaining these gaskets and their installation. I cannot speak for the volume markers. Please give us a call at 1-800-600-0033 or email us at info@moreflavor.com so that we can assist you. We are here to help. Cheers!

The O-ring DOES fit
While the O-ring for the lid is a little difficult to get in, if you watch the video on the product page that demonstrates installing it, the process is much easier and less frustrating. It really will fit, and after that it's an awesome product as a great price. The port really makes racking so much easier and the wide mouth opening makes cleaning a breeze.

Fermonster is a good addition
Like the fermonster. Easier to move than glass, which I'd used exclusively for years. Have yet to utilize the spigot feature - have a brett pale going that's going to take a while until bottling. This one will be a dedicated sour/wild fermenter.
Seems the wide opening will make it simple to clean.
Had a slight issue with the rubber stopper staying in place on the lid, but easily solved with Teflon plumber tape.
Good addition to my supply of fermenters. Will get more.

Great product
The Fermonster was great. I found it easy to indtall the gasket and the spigot. Although the 4 inch opening is wide my arm could not fit to get the spigot in but my wife helped there. The seal was great. The bubler worked great and allowed me to monitor the fermentation process with ease. The entire thing cleaned up nicely after the 2 week fermentation time. I can't wait to get my next batch going.

Good overall fermenting solution.
I purchased 4 of each size of these. They are a good solution to broken glass and are a bit easier to handle with the accessory carrier straps. A must when handling nearly 45lbs of wort. Love the wide mouth for ease of cleaning. Yes , the stopper hole is way oversized (the company must have found a good deal on drill bits?) solution is to buy solid lids and drill to #7 yourself. Solved! Screw on lid can be over tightened, small strap wrench or oil filter wrench agin solves your He-man issue. Friend has Bubbler units w/ old style screw lids, they changed the lid style before I could purchase and these have been a great solution. Love them and would recommend them to anyone interested in a non-glass fermenting solution. Only have 4 stars because of the lid hole size and the O rings can be a booger to get seated.
