Description

The Ported Fermonster is a brand new fermenter designed specifically for fermentation. We gave product feedback for over 2 years of development and we think they nailed the design. The large lid allows for easy filling and makes hop or oak additions a breeze. The smooth sides are fantastic for sanitization - no ribs or texture to collect yeast or bacteria.  The 6 gallon size is great for most fermentations, and the larger 7 gallon is available for even bigger beers. The punted bottom allows sediment to collect to the sides so that you can siphon liquid from the center.  Because they are made from virgin PET plastic they nearly unbreakable and a lot safer than similar glass carboys. Also notice the conical top which reduces surface area if you plan to store beer or wine long term.  

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

Made from heavy PET plastic, the same material used in 2 L soda bottles, which is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration.  Due to the thickness of the material and the overall geometry the Fermonster does not require ribs or dimples for stability.  That results in a super smooth interior surface that reduces yeast and sediment buildup making it the easiest to clean, most sanitary PET carboy on the market.  The huge 4" opening makes filling a breeze, and cleanup is as easy as wiping down the inside.  Fermonsters are easily moved by hand or consider using our Carboy Carrier for even greater ease of use.

These fermentors are completely air-tight 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.

Features:

  • 4" wide mouth carboy - easy to clean!
  • Ported version inlcudes spigot for easy racking
  • Food grade PET plastic construction is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration
  • No hard to clean dimples or ribs
  • Volume Markers at 5 and 6 Gallons

Great Fermenter
Works great for long term sours. Seems to be one of the better options out there for "non-glass" carboys.

good deal for price
So far great experience with this carboy. Easy to clean. Advantage of glass is that you can easily transport it when you have 5+ gallons of beer in it

Works well
I have the competition's version of this also so here's what I'll say. The lid is a definitive improvement but the competition's lid was never as big of a problem for me as others have indicated. The smooth texture is slitely easier to clean and finally the plastic walls seem a little thicker just judging by the way it feels while handling it both full and empty. Speaking from experience, if your considering a large opening fermenter, they are the way to go and much easier to clean.

Great fermenter for the money. Beginners to advanced brews, this fermenter is all you need.

Makes cleanup easy
Better than using a bucket with a spigot because you can see how fermentation is proceeding.

Not as great as the glass fermenters but they're light easy to clean and don't break if you accidentally drop them..

Don't Like It
I got this as part of a kit. Even though I got the gasket installed easily and properly the lid still leaks. Made out of very thin cheap plastic. I would choose the old conventional bucket over this. I purchased a better fermenter. The FE715 Speidel 7.9 gallon which I am very happy with.

Love them
These are so much easier to clean that the competitor's version with all of the dimples. My first Fermonster was great, but the second, with spigot is even better. The lid removal tool is a must.
Love the Fermonsters. Even more with the spigot.

Awesome!
I own 6 Fermonsters. They are pretty much the ideal fermentation vessel in my opinion. I use a #10 breathable silicone airlock.

Clear. Ported. Wide mouth. Lightweight. Safe. Compact. Punted. Low oxygen permeability. Can do pressurized transfers. Seal well. Inexpensive. Designed to minimize headspace. What more could you want?
Want to harvest the yeast cake? Swirl and pour.

Warm PBW soak between batches to clean and remove flavors.
