Got a stuck lid on your Fermonster? Get it open much easier with this specially designed lid opener. It easily slides onto the lid and gives you comfortable hand grips to open a stuck lid.

Note: We do not recommend using this tool to tighten the lid because the seal is made by the o-ring and not the pressure between the lid and neck.

Because I found out it can be a struggle to remove the ring from a FerMonster lid.

Because taking lids off without it is a pain...and I have a strong grip.

After a week or two of fermentation the lids are sometimes stuck pretty well!

Jeffery S. R on May 19, 2021
Can this key be used for fermentassaurus?
BEST ANSWER: The grooves in the lid opener are designed to match up specifically with the grooves of the Fermonster lid, and will not work with the fermentasaurus lid.
Will this work on a fermzilla lid?
Corby Hawkins on Mar 7, 2021
BEST ANSWER: no it uses a different style lid

The first few batches with the fermentor, I was struggling to open the wort-fused lid for cleaning. This opener made opening a cinch. Much appreciated.

Without the lid opener, getting the kids off can be a challenge. This opener makes it easy.

Pretty much a must have to get your lid off when dry hopping etc, or have a big pair of pliers handy

Glad I have it
This may not seem important but if you use Fermonster carboys then eventually you'll screw a lid on too tight and this will come in handy.

I wish I was burly enough to open the FerMonster without this guy, but it does the job perfectly. Very happy I went ahead and grabbed one.

Not required, but definitely helps!
For a couple extra bucks, I decided to buy this when I got my 3 gallon ported Fermonster. I was not sure if it'd be worth it. But it turned out to be very helpful.

The indents in this opener fit in the grooves on the Fermonster lid, making it very easy to open the Fermonster even after fermenting. I'm guessing the pressure changes during fermentation which can create a bit of a vacuum and make it difficult to take off the lid. This solves it.

It's cheap and helpful. Good buy in my book.
