Hands on Review: Spike Conical Fermenters + Limited Time Deal

spike conical review

This review is by Homebrew Finds Reader Benji S.  Benji has been brewing for 10 years.  His favorite style is Festbier.  He’s an all grain brewer and member of WIZA (Whidbey Island Zymurgy Association).  Check him out on Instagram at neon_hop

After well over a year of evaluating, I splurged recently and got a Spike Conical (the CF5). I’ve seen quite a few others going through this debate period, so I wanted to provide a hot take to help others in their own decision making process. So far I’ve assembled and prepped it for my first brews, but haven’t actually used it yet. Most of the points here will be about equipment quality/features rather than practice.

For context; I added on the temp control bundle with heater, leg extensions, casters, extended bracing shelf, and a few other nice to haves. So some of these will cover things that aren’t part of the “core” conical package.


Limited Time Deal, Review Continues Below

As of this posting, Spike’s Bargain Cave has the CF5 available.  Bargain Cave selection and availability can change very quickly.  Check the Bargain Cave for current selection and pricing

CF15 SPIKE CONICAL UNITANK

Spike Brewing Equipment has a Bargain gave that featured discounted gear.  Selection can range wildly from new gear to, canceled custom items to commercial scale items.  Availability of items is generally limited.  Many times, only one is available.

As of this posting, The Bargain Cave has just added limited quantities of Flex select Spike Conicals.  These usually get snatched up quickly….  Availability of Bargain Cave gear is volatile.  If you see something you want, my suggestion is to make your purchase quickly.  Update: Flex Fermentors have sold out, some conicals are still available as of this posting.

10 Gallon Spike Brewing v4 Kettle w/2 Vertical Couplers – $185, Save $35 via Bargain Cave

Spike Brewing Equipment has a Bargain gave that featured discounted gear.  Selection can range wildly from new gear to, canceled custom items to commercial scale items.  Availability of items is generally limited.  Many times, only one is available.

The bargain cave has been sparse lately.  According to my notes, I noticed that 0 kettles were available as of 5/13.  Selection continued to get worse as May went on.  Until today.  Lots of new kettles to choose from as well as conicals.

From Spike: “Looking for a discounted kettle or conical? Check out our freshly stocked Bargain Cave. When a product doesn’t uphold the standards of our strict QC team, we add it to our slightly discounted stock. Items are going quickly!”

This makes the pictured 10 gallon v4 kettle just $185 while supplies last… Availability of Bargain Cave gear is volatile.  If you see something you want, my suggestion is to make your purchase quickly.
