Fermentasaurus

I wonder when these will be on sale here as they sort out all the issues fastferment has.

I love their rotating rack arm video best - it's no-nonsense Aussie blokes at their best basically saying they're pointless and they don't like them. Class!

2016: 330L brewed (72 gallons, over 8 firkins)
2017: 105L brewed
Drinking: store-bought beer as my bar is dry
Conditioning: choc-coffee oatmeal wheat stout, various ciders, cherry 'brett' brown ale, imperial Pilsner.
Fermenting: Bock (6.5%), IPA (5.5%), Pale Ale (4.5)

the float for top of the keg/fv drawing looks nice and simple and if set at a reasonable price could be a better option than the caskwidge offerings..

just so you know, Malt Miller are now selling these. The basic kit is £100, plus £45 for the pressure kit. I think this is quite a bit more expensive than buying in the home country, but then they've shipped it round the world!

The fastferment valves are pain in ass to clean and they have to be taked apart every brew unless u want infected beer. Is there any chance you might have pic of the fermentasaurus valve ? :notworthy:

Hi, can't get a pic right now, but its a stainless steel butterfly valve (sanitary) all parts accessed by oxi if cleaning. I can't believe how well everything is made and designed for the money, actually. Its basically a giant pop bottle, but its seems pretty solid (not rock solid, just not really thin). I filled it with water to the 30 L line, and its easy to carry on the stand and lift into the fridge (not sure if you should, but it was easy anyway) far easier than lifting 23L in a bucket, by miles. The float / pressure system is really solid, draws from 1" below the surface, right down to the last drop and the valve is really solid at the base.

I may start another thread on my first brew, or add to this one, but could be a couple of weeks yet as I need to finish some brewery upgrades (new pump, fridge etc).

Super sounds the business. Love the way it takes pressure also so you can pressure fill a corny so no oxygenation issues also and everything else.
I'm also trying to finish new build and I have allready hit the spend limit so if I buy this it will be "all picture no sound for me"! Ladies never understand the benefits of these things

Wow I want one..... or 3.
The only problem is keeping them the right temperature. I currently use a water bath.

Yeah, I get 3 and a half fermenters full when I brew. I have one beer fridge already. When I floated the idea of getting more fridges for fermenting my wife hit the roof!
