Details:

The Fermentasaurus is the world’s first conical PET fermenter that is pressurisable up to 2.4 Bar working pressure. This new model of fermenter has only been possible to manufacture using a highly specialized PET grade and a new type of PET injection/blow moulding machine that has been commissioned in Springvale, Victoria, Australia. This Australian made product will change the way home brew is made and greatly simplify the home brewing process.

Home brewers can see the yeast in action as the Fermentasaurus is crystal clear. You can dump yeast from the conical shape and clarify the beer without the need to rack off into another vessel. In the past clarifying beer meant racking from one fermenter to another increasing the risks of infection and oxidation. Don’t waste time and put your beer at risk; now you can ferment, clarify and carbonate in one vessel.

The Fermentasaurus comes with a yeast 500ml harvesting container that is also pressure rated. The yeast harvesting container is ideal so you can save your yeast from one brew and pitch it into the next brew.

The breakthrough in this new design means that customers can finally naturally carbonate their clear conditioned beer in the Fermentasaurus and dispense directly to tap. No need to carbonate beer in the keg or bottle. You can drink directly from the Fermentasaurus saving time and hassle.

The Fermentasaurus has been designed with a sanitary butterfly valve with stainless gate. This butterfly valve has been designed so that no threads are immersed in liquid when the Fermentasaurus is in use. Many fermenters on the market use ball valves which are notoriously difficult to sanitise as the ball valve assemblies have small cavities in them that fill with liquid and are near impossible to clean without disassembly.

With the optional pressure kit you can pressurise the vessel up to 35psi to allow you to carbonate and dispense direclty from vessel like a keg! Alternatively you can transfer under pressure to stainless kegs with practically no exposure to oxygen.

    By far the best fermenter I’ve ever owned
    Review by gary@garycrossley.co.ukon 23/10/2017
    I've been waiting for this to come into the UK since they were launched in Australia almost a year ago, and it's been well worth the wait.

    The Fermentasaurus is well made and easy to put together, light, and easy to carry even when full thanks to the carrying handles.

    It is pretty tall though, so if you like to ferment in a fridge you’ll need a tall larder fridge (mine are 145cm tall, which is the minimum height you need).
    It’s great to be able to observe your fermentation as it progresses, and it works brilliantly under airlock and pressure. It's a joy to have so much headspace to play with, allowing you to brew bigger than usual batches should you wish, though for me it means I can indulge in dry-hopping the **** out of my DIPAs and compensate for the loss to absorption so I still achieve a final batch size of 23L (19 for a keg, the rest for bottles). Or more! Plenty of room for monster stout krausens too.

    Although it's a brilliant FV under airlock, to deny yourself the pressure kit means missing out on the key advantages of this FV.

    One of these key advantages for me is the ability to ferment and transfer with minimal (or zero) exposure to oxygen. And no more racking cane! Another is the ability to take samples for tasting or gravity testing with a picnic tap, and another is the ability to carb and serve from the FV, should you feel the need. Yet another is that fact that when you come to transfer to keg (or, indeed, bottle), your beer is already carbonated! No more force carbonating required.

    But as said above, the really big game changer for me is being able to ferment and transfer with minimal to no exposure to oxygen and no messing about with a racking cane. The Fermentasaurus remains in situ in the fridge, and after cold crashing I simply connect my transfer tubing to the liquid out and in posts on the FV and (purged) keg, and as long as you maintain a slightly higher pressure in the FV than the keg, it works beautifully. Takes a little longer, but that’s not an issue for me.

    Things I don’t like?

    Not much. I’m not a fan of dropping trub and harvesting yeast, so don’t use the collection vessel. (I’d much rather overbuild a starter than harvest, and if I ever felt the need to drop any trub, I'd simply place a saucepan or something underneath and dump it into that.)

    It can be used for dry hopping, but the manufacturers recommend only adding 30g at a time. As I regularly dry hop with anything from 150 – 500g, that’s a no-no. Much better to release the pressure, spin the lid off and add dry hops the traditional way, from the top. Screw the lid back on and purge with CO2 a few times, repressurise, and job done. Takes mere seconds. That seems to me to be more sensible than having oxygen bubbling up through the beer via the collection vessel method, which I feel is the Achilles heel of all the current crop of conical plastic fermenters with collection vessels.

    Overall though, I’m absolutely delighted with it. Brilliant fun, and by far the best fermenter I’ve ever owned.
