2 months agoOKAY to begin your wine making, butNot good after that first week.... or I'm doing it wrong. Reason is, that you cannot see the wine as it ferments and clears off. For my money, either the clear Big Bubbler or the glass carboy are totally necessary.July 14, 2019Purchased

over 2 years agoThe best fermentor for the price!I used to use the 6-6.5 gallon ale pails and 5 gallon foodsafe buckets from Menards but they are all gathering dust after I bought my first 7.9 gallon fermentor. I prefer to make 5.5 or 6 gallon batches so that I always have at least 5 gallons to keg after trub and yeast loss but I don't like having to use blow off hoses. These fermentors have enough head-space to accommodate all but my highest gravity brews worry free.April 14, 2017Purchased

- Customer Q&A
Browse 5 questions Browse 5 questions and 16 answersCan a blow-off tube be used with this fermentor? If so, will it require additional accessories?BEST ANSWER: Yes, that will work. When I use a blow-off tube I will simply use a standard airlock without the insert and attach my blow off hose to the stem of the airlock.How would you apply heat to this fermentor to maintain temperature in cold climates?BEST ANSWER: Rather than trying to apply heat or cold directly to the plastic I would control the ambient temperature around it. I find that depending on temp needed, I almost always have the right place somewhere in my house. Put glasses of water all over the place and then start taking temps throughout the day. I have a room in my basement that's perfect for lagers 8 months a year, a closet that is low 60's year round and another that's mid 70's as long as the heat is on. I then assume a fermentation free rise of 5-10 degrees and move the fermentor accordingly.Can the gasket inside the lid be purchased separately?Is the lid included?BEST ANSWER: Yes......the lid is included with this particular plastic fermenter. The lid has a drilled hole with rubberized grommet for using with an airlock (an airlock is NOT included).What size Airlock does this require?BEST ANSWER: This would take a standard airlock like the S-bubble or 3-piece.
