    My Malbec kit came out great!

    After all the tinkering and Teflon taping and worrying about the sampling port installation on the FastFerment, I loaded it up with Cellar Craft Argentine Malbec.

    Replacement for Fast Fermenter 14 gal valve?

    I'm being gifted a FF 14 gallon conical fermenter, but without the union valve. It seems they don't have replacement valves available yet, any suggestions on a compatible part solution? Was looking at union valves online but unsure whether any plastic options are food safe.

I am trying to figure out the best way...

    Small Batch Yield

    I just brewed my first 2.5 gallon batch to put into my FastFerment 3 gallon conical. I'm kind of disappointed, because I brewed a Session IPA and used a hop "basket" (, and still ended up with a bunch of trub in my...
