    I enjoy the simplicity and logic of this design. I haven't brewed in years partly because it’s a messy process. And I try to make purchases that can be used for several applications. This can also be repurposed for making wine as well. And I think kambucha if I’m not mistaken. Knowing me, once I get started I’m probably going to get another one or go larger! Customer service is excellent as well! You won’t regret getting one, I assure you.

    Love this Conical

    I love this fermenter. I graduated from carboys to this conical fermenter and couldn’t be happier. Easier to clean, able to dump trub, no more raking to secondary and you can’t beat the price.

    First batch

    I brewed a Belgian pils and it is currently in primary! Great design, just wish the plastic welds were a little cleaner on the lid. I’m going to add a few tri clover pieces to allow for pumping from fermentation vessel to keg . All in all I’m very pleased with the design .

    My first MiniBrew Fermenter

    Haven't used it yet but looks to be of very high quality. Much shorter than I imagined it to be, will probably use on my counter top so I have enough height to transfer to my kegs. No instructions for assembly included, ( mostly common sense ) , but I feel instructions of stand assembly and where and how much if any thread tape is required with the weldless fittings and ball valves. Would like to see an option of a wall mount, which I currently have 2 fast ferments wall mounted. Overall I like the design and quality and am looking forward to using it.
