Found the Fermentasaurus on the KK web site over the weekend so was very interested in the latest YouTube clip. Excited to see an affordable conical come on market. Hard to get an idea of scale from the site information so was interested in how big the opening is at the top. Clearly I'm not getting a hand in there for cleaning. I've never used a carboy but I suppose the same technique and brush will be required. My fermenter fridge uses a STC1000 and a heat pad under my drum fermenter, how do you control heating with this guy?
Hopefully a few more clips coming starring this fermenter, keen to see how you heat and clean it. And because it's clear I am curious to actually see fermentation.
Appreciate the effort with the clips and this site, thanks. Current project - BIAG Smash with Pilsner malt and saaz

Cheers

G'day, I havent tried to clean one yet of course, but I can get my arm in a bit, probably half my forearm, but best way I think is going to be use sodium percarbonate or PBW or similar and soft brush if really needed, but usually the cleaners do a good job. I'll be using my old trusty light bulb to heat indirectly. I do have a reptile heater bulb I'm going to try too. I think people use their heat pad to heat indirectly too although I havent tried. Cheers!

I ordered one of these with the pressure kit, should be here by next weekend (fingers crossed). I have had a look at the latest YouTube information posted by KK but was wondering about the actual fermentation procedure with the pressure kit.

It might be obvious to all but me, but is it designed to use the pressure lid through the whole fermentation period - if so is it the pressure relief valve that acts as the airlock? Or do you swap the lids over when you want to rack the finished beer over into kegs using CO2 :unsure: ?

I havent tried mine yet! I havent even thought about it yet, Id think maybe you change it near the end of ferment? or maybe get a spunding valve? or... ummm lol

Which ever way I dont think you want the float and pick up tube in during the ferment?? but maybe I'm wrong?? I'll flick through the instructions and see if it says anything, have you checked the web page? Not keg kings one the fermentasaurus one?

Yeah, I had a look at the oxe?? site. No obvious answer. I haven't downloaded the instructions though. They talk quite a bit about removing oxygen exposure during fermentation, even dry hopping through the yeast collection bottle, that's what got me thinking.

Hey Gash, got a quick question, was thinking about putting 2 All INN citra wort kits in the fermentersaurus, 30L, Then after ferment, adding the 5L cooled boiled water with priming Dex to each keg and filling, What do you think?
