The barrel arrived on time and in good condition.
I have just filled it with the brew which should be ready for Christmas.
It is easy to use and clean because of the large cap with the S30 valve.
So far I would recommend.
Used it to make a lovely ginger wine to add to whiskey, great favourl
Arrived on time, good product.
gives a reasonable pint
After just one brew this is now a must have gadget for me. You can see the gravity drop even before any visible signs of fermentation appear so no need to peek inside the fermenter to check if it's started OK. Surprising how quickly the gravity drops - most fermentation over within 48 hrs. Then just slowly wait for the gravity to level out - no need to sample. Works fine inside a fridge which was my biggest concern but I'm using a plastic fermenter. A stainless one might be pushing it but you could perhaps place a repeater inside the fridge. One minor point - requires a micro-USB cable to charge; these are fairly uncommon now so may need to be ordered separately.
