The price is incredible considering the closest I've seen is $300. The reviews seem good and with it being $11 to ship to my house and payday tomorrow, I'm thinking a lot about this.

I thought a lot about this on Ebay, too. I decided against it because I enjoy watching what my beer is doing while fermenting. Here is the discussion I posted on it.

Feedback looks good and it is a good price. I'm thinking about one myself.

First, "CYA?" Maybe acronyms change over time.

Second, let us know what you think after it arrives; he may get more.

Well, I'm the anal-retentive guy who text-messages the kids and spells everything out. In my day, CYA meant "cover your ass" but now that you mention it, I have seen it in text messages I've received.

they will be back, and I have heard a lot of bad feedback. Good for the money, and the guy seems to send out a new one when the one you get leaks. It seems that about half the fermenters he sends out leak at badly welded points through out.
