Please read the instructions thoroughly before use. The current version can be found in the 'instructions' tab above. We will not be held liable for misuse or mishandling of the unit contrary to the instructions.
Keeping the units out of direct sunlight is a must for all PET fermenters. Sunlight degrades PET.
Do not expose to temperatures exceeding 35°C and pressure ferment past 5psi at these temperatures.
When using this vessel under pressure. You must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof before you fill the fermenter every time. To do this. Fill your FermZilla up with some water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel. Check for leaks around all Cap / Threads by tipping it upside down, in all directions where there are risks of leakage.
Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large blow-moulded thin-walled vessels. But don't panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this. This was a necessary implementation into the design so that they can withstand some accidental suction from cold crashing and rough handling in transit without compromising their integrity and ability to endure high pressures. All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns or have damaged the plastic.
