Hands On Review: German Made Speidel Fermenters

Hands on Review Speidel Fermenters

German Made, Speidel Fermenters are available in a range of sizes 3.2 gallons all the way up to… 132 gallons.  Check out the full lineup including accessories and replacement gaskets.

I’ve owned a 5.3 gallon Speidel fermenter since October of 2011.  I use it for small batch BIAB beers.  I’ve been very impressed with that fermenter.  More recently, I picked up the 7.9 gallon version so that I can ferment full 5 gallon batches with all the same advantages.  This is a hands on review of both fermenters.

Carboy Bag and Carrier from MoreBeer – $27.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

Carboy Bag/Carrier via MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Use this specially made carboy bag to protect yourself and your beer! Carboys can be slippery, especially when wet. Our strong canvas bag allows you to more safely carry a carboy. If it is accidentally dropped the canvas will help contain the broken glass and reduce personal injury. Your beer also benefits as it is protected from light. UV Light interacts with compounds in hops to create skunky off flavor (editor note… I may not be a smart man but I do know skunky flavors in beer aren’t good).

These are made in the USA from heavy black canvas with strong nylon webbing that is stitched (very strong) to support the carboy when lifting. In the summer, you can help reduce high fermentation temps by placing frozen ice packs in between the canvas and the carboy.

The “Carboy Bumper” from MoreBeer – $13.49, Save $4.50 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability

The Carboy Bumper

The Carboy Bumper from MoreBeer.  Easy to use, protective pads for the bottom of your carboy.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Glass carboys make great fermentors but glass is fragile. Especially when dropped onto the hard ground with 5 gallons of beer in it! The Carboy bumper was designed to preserve the life of your carboy by protecting it where it needs it most. You move your carboy around a lot and everytime it bumps or knocks into the ground. The carboy bumper protects the bottom of your carboy to minimize the risk of damage from the stresses of day to day use.

The Carboy Bumper is made from high performance materials. The shock protection comes from PORON® foam. This foam absorbs shock from hard landings and bumps that overtime can create microfractures in your glass carboy. The adhesive is a specialized 3M adhesive film that is water and chemical resistant. Anti-fungal, Anti-microbial, and Anti-bacterial ensure that the Carboy Bumper will stay on even through repeated use.

These easy to use pads will fit any size glass carboy or demijohn so that you don’t have to worry every time you set your carboy down. These pads are made in the USA and are cheaper than having to buy a new carboy!

FerMonster Ported 3 Gallon Wide Mouth Fermenter – $19.99 + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability + Hands on Review

3 Gallon Ported FerMonster Large Mouth Fermenter from MoreBeer

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The Fermonster is a brand new fermenter designed specifically for fermentation. MoreBeer! 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 punted bottom allows sediment to collect to the sides so that you can siphon liquid from the center. Because they are made from vigin PET plastic, they’re 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.

  • 4″ inner diameter wide mouth carboy – easy to clean!
  • Food grade PET plastic construction is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration
  • No hard to clean dimples or ribs
  • Punted bottom
  • O-Ring and Lid with one hole is included (Fits #10 Stopper)
  • Additional O-Rings and Lids available
  • Weight: 1.5 lbs
  • Temperature Limit: 140° F
  • Height: 14.6 inches
  • Diameter: 9 inches
  • Completely taste and odor free
  • Perfect for Beer, Wine, Cider, Mead, Kombucha or any other fermented beverage!

Carboy Volume Calibration Decals – from $2.25

carboy decals

Vinyl decals for marking volumes on your glass or plastic carboy or bucket fermenter

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Inspired by the calibration numbers for the sight glass kits, these larger numbers allow you to calibrate carboys (including Better Bottles) up the the larger 6.5 gallon size. The full gallon marks from 1 to 6 are a full 1″ tall and 1″ wide including the pointer triangles. Six additional 1/2″ tall triangles are and four 1/4″ tall triangles are included if marking 1/2 and 1/4 gallon increments is desired at the upper limits of the range.

These are premium cut vinyl with clear top masking for easy application. The vinyl has an OUTDOOR rating of at least 7 years with a permanent waterproof adhesive. These will stand up to repeated washing and even occasional soaking in water baths. They can be added to any other hardware order for no additional shipping charge or can be purchased alone for the price of a USPS first class shipping.

These decals are available in white or black vinyl. We’ve found that the white is more appropriate for clear carboys since they are contrasted well on light or dark beer. If you are calibrating HDPE natural buckets, the black version would be better. Although the graphic shows the white vinyl on a black background, there is no black in the white vinyl decal. The pictures below are more representative of what the final install will look like.


 

These are $3 each.  If you buy 4, you’ll automatically receive a 25% discounting making them $2.25 each.  Details on that promotion can be found on the Vinyl Decals landing page.
