Description

The Ported 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 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 thickness 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.

Does the washer on the spigot work best inside or outside the carboy?
Dan Ozenberger on Dec 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I've always used it on the inside and that seems to work best. The washer squeezes against the nut and the walls of the fermenter to stop contact between the beer and anything on the outside of the fermenter. This makes the most sense to me because the outside of the fermenter is likely to be contaminated fairly quickly.
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: 3/8 OD tubing works for the spigot.

Easy racking, racking it slow
Love this thing. Using a brewjacket with them. Racking made easy, easy to clean. Extra headspace is nice for high gravity beers.

easier than a carboy
I love these fermonsters in the 7 gallon size. They're easy to clean because I can fit my arm most of the way in to scrub. The spigotted option is great for moving liquids to a secondary fermenter or bottling and it's off the bottom by enough to leave trub inside.

This thing is perfect, plenty of head space for 5 gal batches. Easy to clean / sanitize. Light enough to move around and of course its nearly impossible to break. priced pretty well too!

Great fermenter for 5-6 gal batches
Safer then glass, lightweight, fits in kegerator for cold crashing, easy to clean, and the spigot makes draining to secondary or keg super easy.

Better than buckets
Good sized fermenter and it doubled as a bottling bucket for me. Worked great, good seals and no leaks at the spigot. Very much recommended, along with the strainer that sits in the top opening. I already bought my second one.

Much better than siphoning
Having the fermenster with a spigot makes transfer of the beer to the bottling bucket so much easier; and less messy. Very happy

ok
For the price point, this is just ok. Just a very basic fermenter with a spigot. Doesn't even come with an airlock. most brewers prolly have an extra bung and airlock that fits (I did)

I have found the Big Mouth to be a little more and a little better. Big mouth has volume gradings and comes with an airlock. Feels a little higher quality
