This fermenter does everything it's supposed to do,it works great. Kinda hard to clean. The airlock is very fragile and is slightly different from typical airlock .mine cracked the first time I used it. Going to have to get another airlick.

FERMENTASAURUS, PRESSURIZED.
Bought 3 with pressure kits around Oct. '17; made 6 batches of 7 gallons approx. but initially in Fermonsters and did not really ferment under pressure even with the "Saurus" yet. We want bottles not kegs so far, have so much we can't drink it so will have to wait before further efforts and experiments. 3-400 bottles in freezers @ 34F. My "crowd" not craft beer aficionados; want it clear, bottled, no sediment,lager. My first effort since student days (ughh!), ordered IPS type ale kits; finally learned a simple all-grain american wheat beer. Would have liked much more detailed instructions on pressure aspects. Problems have been not knowing how to use the pressure relief safety valve; All three of mine blow at 9 to 15 psi not at 35 psi so I tried to plug them. My 2 spunding valves only go 0-15 psi and came without instruccions. I guess "everyone knows" how to adjust them (except me). Trial & error, much YouTube; finally got CO2. there weren't even explanations of the little "toilet tank float". Guess if you're intelligent no explanation is required, it's obvious. If you're not, no explanation is possible. These days most tools come with 6 pages telling you not to plug it in while sitting in the bathtub, and 4 lines on use and technique. So many options. Whether to rack to a clean vessel. Can't filter carbonated beer. Bottling carbonated beer. I did fairly well with simple wands but next season will get a bottling gun and a counter-pressure outfit. Oh, I had problems with leaks around blow-off valve and worse with the gas and liquid quick-connects, Again no education that the black and the gray plastic connectors are not the same. I got 3 Brewjacket immersion coolers; worked with Fermonsters but impossible with the crowded pressure head of Fersmentasaurus. Maybe those clever New Zealanders will mold a special adaptor cap with lateral side connectors so I could do everything truly single conical. Meanwhile 7.2 cu. ft. freezers came on sale here at a certain store for $130. Work great with $35 Inkbird controller. Have to build insulated height extenders to pressure ferment etc. with Fermentasaurus under really controlled cold. Actually I plan to put 2 Fermentasaurus pressurized systems in each freezer. Problem? design to enable lifting 9 gallon conical and all its glorious accessories in and out. Even 5 gallons a risky strain for near 81 year old. HF has hydraulic lift table works well up to table height. A special Fermentsaurus harness and mini-forklift anyone? I had no leakage from the cap threads above or the bottle, spigot, seals below. Have nice white food-grade synthetic grease but guess Crisco or mineral oil fine.
