this things incredible easy to use tough and im fermenting mango hab galaxy hop mead yum will be getting another
Like the ease of using but struggled with leaking lower seals. After tightening it stopped and made it very easy later to remove trub, harvest yeast, and transfer.
Overall very pleased! Works as described. Love the trub trap they're great! Transferred my beer to a bottling bucket and didn't see any haziness or trub in my the tubing. Downside was both gaskets on the valve assembly were only good for 1 use. I filled the fermenter as soon as I got it and no problems both sides were not over torqued only hand tight. 1 week later I was ready to use and had to over torque to get them to seal. Kinda rushed then though because I was transferring my wort to the fermenter. First time I emptied trap had to over tighten (bottom gasket only) even more to get it to seal. The second time I removed the trap it got even worse. However when I put the clear conical bottling piece on to transfer to the bucket only had to hand tighten it so not sure what's up with that.
Overall as I said very pleased I've already decided to get another and have recommender The Catalyst to some of my homebrewing friends.
Great product. Really simplifies the brewing process. Very easy to clean.
This is taking wine making to next level. So easy to rack wine. It only takes a few minutes. A little pricey but well worth the cost.
