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 ?
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).
