Item arrived well packaged and in good shape. Nice looking piece of gear. Seamless on the interior. Can't wait to use it to make another batch of Diablo Rojo wine.
This SS fermenter is easy to clean, and the added space at the top cap is a blessing. The spigot leaked at first, as others have noted, but applying more plumbers putty and using wrenches to tighten it stopped the minor leak. It’s a good buy. The 1/2” spigot makes racking a quick job.
This is the second time I've bought one (the first was damaged in a fire). They're a bit thin, but love the design. They're a joy to ferment in and easy to clean. Beats the hell out of glass carboys!
Good Fermenter. Had issues with it leaking at first but sorted that out with some additional plumbers tape. It is rather thin unit but good for what I need it for.
I have used the item twice now with good results. For what I wanted to spend on a stainless steel ferment, it was a good deal. The only concern I have about it is that the valve and the thickness of the fermenter barrel don't seem to match as well as I think it should. The valve is heavy and the thickness of the fermenter barrel itself is relatively thin and should be thicker to effectively support the weight of the shut-off valve. When handling it, I worry about bumping it and creating valve leaks.
