FastFerment makes all my brews better including kegging and bottling which I do both. The best part I found is dry hopping my IPAs with whole leaf hops (that I grow) because the opening is very accommodating. I did not have trouble with the covers sealing because I removed the flashing from the threads before use. All in all it's a great product. I recommend it to everyone. Lucky for me my local homebrew shop carries supplies for FastFerment now.

I am a homebrewer with the Lawrence Brewers Guild, Lawrence Kansas. I saw
the Fast ferment advertised a few years ago and was intrigued by the concept.
One of our LBG members turned me onto the pre sale promotion. Afterlooking
it up I was able to purchase four. What a neat product. It eliminated
racking and transferring steps and potential avenues for contamination. I
mounted the units in my basement on the wall which freed up table top space.
Having them elevated provided easy keg filling and yeast collection. A down
side is the thermometer port is not the standard 1/2" NPT so I needed to get

We do not cover a lot of homebrewing subjects here, but when a killer looking product and deal like the FastFerment comes across the computer screen, it's too good not to share.

I haven't been this excited about a product in forever! Ordered 2 but thinking we need at least 5. (FR purchase confirmed)

This looks really great to me. I've already ordered one. Looks ideal to me, and at $90, it's hard to go wrong.

We're getting this, the forthcoming batches of homebrewing should be awesome.

"Cleaning was easy. Although this wasn't dirty when it arrived I still did PBW & Star San, cleaning and rinsing were a breeze and already make this worth it. The wide opening at the top makes it real easy to reach inside and clean".

"The FastRack team is at it again, their new one FastFerment is looking like an interesting addition to the conical fermenter category!"

This will be batch number 4 that I've put into the fermentor. I've been fermenting a new batch in the fast fermentor every two weeks since it arrived. Now that I've got the process worked out I love this thing. It's definitely made things faster and easier. I especially like the ability to drop out the trub before pitching yeast and the ease of repitching into the next batch. What would be really sweet is a cap that you could screw onto the top of the ball to completely seal it. The stopper that was included works pretty well, but I had it slip out on me at least once. The first three batches I ran through were all from the same yeast culture (WLP001). I've got 7.5+ gallons of Kolsch in primary right now."
