HBF Exclusive – Save On 14 Gallon FastFerment Conical Fermenter!

14 gallon fastferment

14 Gallon FastFerment Conical Fermenter

About, from love2brew: “Conical fermenters offer superior performance for beer & wine making versus traditional carboys and pails. The FastFerment offers similar functionality when compared to stainless steel Conical Fermenters at a fraction of the price.

Conical fermenters remove some of the process out of fermenting your beer. This is beneficial because the it reduces some of potential for contamination and/or oxidation. Conical fermenters allow you to drop the yeast out of the bottom when primary fermentation is finished. Your FastFerment may be used as a primary fermenter and a secondary (after the yeast has been dropped out), you save time by not having to transfer and clean a separate vessel. After additional conditioning you may bottle/keg directly from the FastFerment using the attachable hose barb and attaching your tubing to the barb.

Cleaning the FastFerment is very easy with the wide removable lid. Be sure to use soft sponges and not steel brushes or rough plastics to guarantee the longevity of your FastFerment.

The 14 Gallon FastFerment includes a stand. This unit is not wall mountable like the smaller 7.9 Gallon Fast Ferment.”

love2brew… loves HBF Readers!  As such they are extending you a 10% discount on this conical fermenter use coupon code HBF1017 to get the deal.  This is the first discount I can recall seeing on this newer fermenter.  Shipping is also free to most US addresses.  Check l2b for current availability.
