Exactly what I was thinking.

I looked into their beta test program. I couldn't believe they wanted me to pay like $100 for the privledge of doing their testing for them. I told them "You've got to be kidding!".

I'd avoid these things until there's some solid feedback from some of their suckers, um, I mean beta testers...

Regardless of whether or not it works, it's made of plastic and fricking expensive. No thanks.

Couple problems I see. Like buckets, it's plastic and can get scratched and has higher O2 permeability than other fermenters. You also have a gasket between the cone and cylinder (bucket) which depending on how well you clean and sanitize, could be an issue. So really the only benefit is it's easier to dump trub and harvest yeast.

yeah I may have had a bit too much to drink at the NHC... bought one. When it arrived I was scared by how terrible it looks inside and by the pact all the fittings are using picnic taps... I posted a video up on youtube with some close ups of the 'scary' areas. I have had this for about 3 months but have not been brave enough to use it yet.

It's not the pressure that scares me too much (there is a rubber bung in the bottom that should fail before the bucket does) It's the rough edges and seams on the inside in the plastic that worry me the most... also still wondering how I am suppose to get the beer from this to my keg... beer line doesn't stay on a picnic tap that well....

you don't move it to your keg. You serve from it. It is a fermentor 1st and then Keg 2nd.

in that case it's even worse. you can't pressurize it except via fermentation...so once you're out of built up pressure the beer is going to start to go flat... I think this would be an awesome product if they made just the code... in stainless steel and with usuable fittings.

It would be an awesome product if it were 100% stainless. Oh wait, that's just a regular conical and they (not onederbrew) do make them.

heh yeah I have one....but still. The plastic isn't what I take issue with the most...the rough edges in the plastic are... It's like buying a new plastic bucket fermenter...that's comes pre scratched up...

I always like to give someone with entrepreneurial spirit some leeway, but after seeing inside closeups of that plastic fermenter, I have to wonder if the inventor has really ever brewed beer. I have no problem with it being plastic. That's one way to make it less expensive for the "average" homebrewer who is not so fanatical about his equipment. But, I would at least expect the first real production units to be better than that as far as quality control. You normally don't see things like that until demand kicks in and the manufacturer needs to ramp up production while at the same time cutting costs.
