FastFerment Conical Fermenter Setup and Overview

Published by:

For Christmas, I got the FastFerment Conical Fermenter as well as a few of the accessories.  So I decided to do a quick setup and overview of it as my first video done for the website.  I will do a full review of it after I use it on an upcoming brew.

A few things to note:

  1.  I needed another quarter turn of the main valve assembly, and I found this out during my water test.
  2.  I forgot the carrying strap that I got as well.
  3. I need to boost my audio next time  (sorry)
  4. I should put away the kids’ games before videoing…..I got excited and blasted ahead without cleaning.
