From the offering description, check offering for current description, availability and pricing:

The Fermentasaurus is the world’s first conical PET fermenter that is pressurizable up to 2.4 Bar working pressure. This new model of fermenter has only been possible to manufacture using a highly specialized PET grade and a new type of PET injection/blow molding machine that has been commissioned in Springvale, Victoria, Australia. This Australian made product will change the way home brew is made and greatly simplify the home brewing process.

Home brewers can see the yeast in action as the Fermentasaurus is crystal clear. You can dump yeast from the conical shape and clarify the beer without the need to rack off into another vessel. In the past clarifying beer meant racking from one fermenter to another increasing the risks of infection and oxidation. Don’t waste time and put your beer at risk; now you can ferment, clarify and carbonate in one vessel.

The Fermentasaurus comes with a yeast 500ml harvesting container that is also pressure rated. The yeast harvesting container is ideal so you can save your yeast from one brew and pitch it into the next brew.

The breakthrough in this new design means that customers can finally naturally carbonate their clear conditioned beer in the Fermentasaurus and dispense directly to tap. No need to carbonate beer in the keg or bottle. You can drink directly from the Fermentasaurus saving time and hassle.

The Fermentasaurus has been designed with a sanitary butterfly valve with stainless gate. This butterfly valve has been designed so that no threads are immersed in liquid when the Fermentasaurus is in use. Many fermenters on the market use ball valves which are notoriously difficult to sanitize as the ball valve assemblies have small cavities in them that fill with liquid and are near impossible to clean without disassembly.

With the optional pressure kit (see our eBay store) you can presurize the vessel up to 35psi to allow you to carbonate and dispense directly from vessel like a keg! Alternatively you can transfer under pressure to stainless kegs with practically no exposure to oxygen.

Includes barb for bottle filling from bottom dump that accommodates 3/8″ or 1/2″ tubing

Hands on Review: FerMonster Fermentors

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Fermonster PET Fermentor

With all of the fermentor choices out on the market, there are plenty of good reasons to not be fermenting in that plastic bucket that came with your starter homebrew kit. Most of us make that realization when we can no longer fool ourselves into calling it “white”, and it carries the aroma of all the previous hop varieties it’s seen. PET Plastic fermentors are the logical next step up from the HDPE plastic buckets.

PET Is far less porous than HDPE. Because of that, it makes for a great oxygen barrier. As a material, HDPE passes through 50x the amount of oxygen over a given time than PET. So PET makes for better long ferments like if you’re lagering (or are just the forgetful type). Glass is an even better oxygen barrier, not allowing any oxygen to permeate it. But from a practical perspective, just like Coca-Cola figured out, glass is heavy and creates a nasty mess when you drop it. PET Is also cooler than that plastic bucket because the fermentor is clear, which allows you to view the exciting chemistry going on inside your brew.

The Fermonster comes in different sizes and options. They come as big as 7 gallons or as small as 1 gallon. And also intermediary sizes of 6 gallons and 3 gallons. You can get it without a spigot or with one if you want to do gravity beer transfers instead of using a siphon.
