Use this product for hard cider brewing and typical brew days for beer
This is so much easier than using multiple five gallon containers. Filling is easy too
I've been brewing for a few years when I found the Catalyst. Since racking the beer (siphoning) between buckets and carboys always drove me a little nuts, I would put off doing it. (I think it was the sanitizing the siphon that got me.) But with the Catalyst, it's quick and easy to pull the trub away from the beer (instead of siphoning the beer off the trub).
Love this product, it's incredibly easy to sanitize and use. The design makes single vessel brewing easy, no need to rack your brew. The look is fantastic, great conversation piece.
For the beginning to the end the ease of use and clean up is MUCH easier than the conventional models.
I used this catalyst for brewing any kind of ale beer. feit perfect in my apartment. easy to use.
easy to clean and fun to use. haven't made a bad beer out of it yet.
This whole set up was perfect for me to start brewing beer and finding a new hobby i thoroughly enjoy
I began brewing with this equipment and I am glad I didn't do it with 5 gallon buckets. It's amazing to watch the process with the clear plastic fermenter. The trub settles easily to the bottom and makes for easy bottling and even easier clean up. I've already asked my wife for a second one for Christmas :)
This was my very first attempt for a home brew. I followed the instructions and now I enjoy a great beer. Very easy to do.
