    Could I get some advice on bottling directly from FermZilla using a CP filler?

    I could use some advice from y'all regarding using a counter pressure filler (CPF) going from a FermZilla to bottles. (I'm still saving $ to build a keezer and switch entirely to kegging.) I have a FermZilla 30L All Rounder and plan to pressure ferment at 60-65F, and I can't refrigerate the...

    Venting pressure in Fermzilla leading to massive foaming

    Last night I pitched a massive starter in to my well oxygenated wort. Second time using my Fermzilla under pressure. I thought I backed the wingnut out on the spunding valve enough but woke up this morning to Fermzilla at 20 psi. I vented the Fermzilla couple times to get pressure down to 8psi...

    Naturally carbonated Fermzilla at room temp.

    Hello everyone, I recently purchased a Fermzilla and I'm in the process of getting CO2 equipment (pressure kit, gas, lines, connectors, spunding valve, counterpressure bottle filler).

    Bottling from 55L fermzilla

    Hi everyone, I had a question regarding the fermzilla that I cant seem to find an answer to. I was wondering if it was possible to add the priming sugar to the fermzilla the same way one would dry hop and then proceed to use pressure and a bottling wand to move the beer into bottles. I don’t...

    FermZilla with Partial Mash

    I’ve started a partial mash brew in a FermIlla and wondering how much loss I’ll have after the 2nd step - I’m not sure if there is sufficient space in the collection container to be able to properly “filter” the beer without having to filter it. Does anyone have any experience brewing partial...

    FermZilla Trub Not Going In Collection Jar

    This is my first time using the FermZilla. The collection jar is open and some trub went into it, but now there's a buildup at the bottom of the cone and then a space of fermenting beer sandwiched between the trub layers. Does anyone know if this is normal for these kinds of fermenters? Should I...
