Brewers can pressurize the vessel up to 35 psi to allow for carbonation and dispensing directly from vessel like a keg. The Snub Nose Fermentasaurus can fit into the Keg Master Series 4 Kegerator meaning once the beer is carbonated it can be dispensed directly from your tap. Simply attach the liquid out post to a draft system or picnic tap. Beer served direct from the fermentor is completely uncompromised by oxygen.
Transferring beer to kegs or other fermentation vessels is simple, sanitary and practically oxygen free when performed under pressure with the ease of the included pressure lid. Simply attach a gas supply disconnect to the ball lock gas post and push the beer out of the vessel with C02 by way of the pressure lid’s floating dip tube. The floating dip tube allows only the bright beer to be picked up and transferred, leaving the sediment at the bottom of the fermenter behind. Transferring in this way requires a ball lock jumper (liquid to liquid transfer disconnect package).

Works well haven't had any problems with it. Make sure to pay attention to which barb is gas and which is liquid. I am an idiot and spent a few hours frustrated when I couldn't get the jumper line to connect.
I've used this three times in the last few months and it works great. I have fermented two lagers under pressure and they turned out very good taking less than a week between brew and serving. Very cool to be able to see the fermentation while happening and to do no oxygen transfers to keg.
The concept/practicality is great. They advertise “pressurized fermentation” but without a spunding valve to dial in the pressure... it becomes problematic. Will give 5 star because it was on sale and spent the $40 on the valve to create a constant pressure and also for oxygen free transfer to the keg.
One of the Fermentasaurus had a nut missing, contacting Midwest about it and they sent me a replacement right away. Awesome service.
Bought this after a broken carboy left 5 gallons of Pilsner on the floor in front of my cooler:-) , and on the recommendation of a fellow brewer. This is the BOMB! I particularly like the ability to do an oxygen free transfer from the fermenter to the keg, and to ferment under pressure. It is light, simple to move, and it has both a volume sticker and a thermometer to judge pitching temp. I liked it so much I
bought a second one to double my capacity.
