Description 

Our Siphonless Fermenter completely eliminates the need for messy siphoning with its unique invert tube valve, which keeps silty sediment out of the valve during fermentation, and acts like a siphon hose ideally placed just above the yeast sediment when draining. Made entirely of food grade plastics (no BPA), our Siphonless is a rugged and easy to clean fermenter. All parts are easily disassembled for easy cleaning. The 6 gallon (total volume) fermenter holds 5 gallons of beer, with room for foaming. Gallon markers on the side of the Siphonless make it easy to measure half batches, or water to fill a brewing pot. The lid features a removeable silicone food grade O ring for an airtight seal (pictured at right). The valve fits the 4’ of 3/8” tubing included for oxidation-free transfer of the raw beer into our Priming Tank.

Includes invert tube valve, lid, removeable silicone O ring, airlock, 4’ of tubing, and illustrated instructions. 21” high (including airlock height), 13” deep. Withstands temperatures of up to 170° F.

Now by popular demand, a lid sealing O ring is included with our Siphonless!

Super to use after you get the hang if ut
This fermenter is the only one I use for primary since I got it in July.  First batch was a bit cloudy until I went to longer primary fermentation (4 weeks) and learned to transfer more slowly.  I am not nuts about the gasket, but use it anyway.  I am going to buy a kit to install a valve on my older unused fermenter.

Easy to use and clean
Excellent fermentor - super easy to use and can't beat the fact that you don't have to rack before bottling.

Had my fermenter for a full year now.  Very durable and easy to use.  The lid seals well, I have no issues with the red gasket, it works great and allows a good seal to view airlock activity.  Plastic is very smooth, and I never scrub.  To clean, I use hot water in a strong stream to wash the crub off.  Then I use a oxygen cleaner soaked overnight.  Next day, add a TBS of bleach per gallon, and soak.  Rinse like crazy.  Then Starsan to finish off the cleaning sanitizing.  The bucket still looks new on the inside after year and I don't see a reason not to use it for another year.  Ty.

Some good, some bad. Not worth $35
Preface: been homebrewing for 20+ years, love lots of Williams' products, have used glass carboys as fermenters my whole brewing life.

The very 1st thing you should do if you buy this product is, before washing, before reading instructions, even before unpacking everything: throw away the large red o-ring. Throw it in the trash, do not pass go, do not collect $200. Throw it straight away. It poorly fits the lid, makes zero difference in performance, and is only a source of frustration as if falls off the lid and into your fresh wort. Seriously, this would be "over-engineering" if it actually did something. It does not. You can almost hear the guys at Williams laughing about this one. 

Second, the stopcock is cheap and flimsy, and is positioned poorly to either avoid trub or hops. Pre-fitting with a bit of cheesecloth or nylon mesh works to fix this.

The good is that it is easy to wash & sterilize, conveniently doubles as a priming tank, can be even used as a lauter tun if desperate.

Siphonless Fermenter
I've been using the William's siphonless fermenter since I began brewing in 1995.  As someone who aerates by shaking the fermenter, I was very disappointed when I recently replaced a couple of fermenters and discovered that the rubber gasket in the lid has been removed.  Now, when I shake the fermenter, the beer spills out and is quite messy and aggravating.

On the plus side (for William's, anyway), I'm writing this review to get the $5 coupon for my next order, which, predictably, is the oxygen aeration system.  Oh well....
