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 large 7 gallon size was designed to provide ample space for fermentation and you'll find the molded in volume markers super handy for accurate filling. 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 thicknes 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.  The 7 gallon volume is a monster of a fermenter, reducing blowoff issues seen with standard 5 and 6 gallon carboys. 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.

Moving away from glass, but want to see fermentation, transfer easily via spigot, clean easily via wide mouth, solid cap also available. No down side.

Just broke a 6 gal glass carboy. I have one 7 gallon fermonster and it is perfect. Ordering 2 more 7 gallon for future brews. O ring is funky, so I threw it away. Seals well for brew.

It is transparent allowing brewer to watch fermentation has spout for easy beer tranfer and large capacity to avoid blow offs and fill keg with ease.

Has anyone had to use a blow off tube and if so what OD?
Michael Cundiff on Feb 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Michael,
I've had this fermenter for over a year fermenting 5.5 and 6 gal batches. With aggressive yeast I'll attach a blow off tube. Simply insert a 1/2 OD tube into the size #10 stopper that is a recommended purchase from Morebeer. It creates an airtight fi!
Rich
What size tubing will fit the spigot?
Ray Pirc on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Small, like 1/4 ID if you stretch it, 3/8-5/16 fits easily

FerMonster
Carboy is light and the wide mouth makes it easy to put my arm inside. Lid seems to have a good seal and is easy to screw on. The only issue I would have at this time are the volume marking, 5, 6 and 7 gallon, are on the opposite side of the spigot and I consider the spigot side the front.

The wide mouth on the Fermonster makes it easy to pour into, punch the cap, stir, take samples, and clean.

Worth buying but need to fix gasket problem
The product was good and worked fine for wine! The only down side is the rubber gasket that goes under the lid s***s and also falls out when taking of the lid. The Spicket was helpful in bottling and transfering to another Carboy

Excellent!
Fantastic! The spigot makes transferring to a secondary fermenter way easier than a siphon or transfer pump. Wish I had started with this!

Few dents but no scrapes. Good to ferment! My current batch of holiday ale fermented with giga yeast overflowed the top with foam, was a small mess, but still cooking!

Huge QoL Improvement without the Big Pricetag
Before this i had solely fermented in glass carboys, but bought this on a whim for a spigot. It probably improved every aspect, from the weight, racking, and cleaning. Everything is better. Hopefully it lasts just as long. Looks like it got a little deformed on the top during shipping, but it still works perfectly!

Perfect fermenter
I purchased this to replace an HDPE opaque fermenter that I've used for 15 years. This Fermonster is very light weight, easy to watch activity in and super easy to clean. You may want to purchase the carboy carrier for it as it is somewhat slick when wet and sudsy. It does have a lip on the top but it requires a bit of finger strength to lift when full. Overall great product.
