Description

Carboys are great, but they have some issues: They require funnels to get liquid in, and cleaning brushes to clean up after.  They hold a decent volume, but all are a bit undersized for fermentation, and have no inherent measuring system.  Glass Carboys are breakable, while plastic carboys scratch with the first brush cleaning.  The Fermonster leaves all these problems behind!

These ported versions come with our plastic spigot (FE347), allowing for easy racking and sampling!

These Fermonster Plastic Carboy Fermenters are made from heavy PET plastic, the same used in 2 L soda bottles, which is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration. The huge 4" opening makes filling a breeze, and cleanup is as easy as wiping down the inside. Glass carboys are fragile, and this is nothing like that.  The hefty plastic construction will hold up to brew day abuse.

These fermentors are completely air-tight; the bodies constructed of heavy, oxygen impervious P.E.T. plastic, and the lids sealed tight with an O-Ring.  Additional O-Rings and Lids both with and without holes are available for purchase, see our You Might Also Need items below.

Wanted a wide mouth carboy this size
Randy V on Nov 30, 2019
Easier to handle than glass, and the spigot should mean no siphoning!

Got it for a kombucha continuous brewing system. Might get more to have on hand to make tepache or other concoctions

I like the idea of spigot to eliminate siphoning.

Does it hold exactly 1 gallon of liquid, or is there additional space for the krausen?
David Basham on Nov 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There is ullage above one gallon for krausen. These were fairly successful and economical for doing side-by-side fermentation trials. However 1) the side walls are thin and flimsy like a PET soda bottle, 2) I did have some trouble getting the spigots to seal, so test those before filling them with fermentables, and 3) I saw no action on the fermentation lock: not sure if the stopper made a poor seal with the cap, or if the screw-top lid seals poorly. Not a big deal but an inconvenience.
