Tips for Use

This fermenter is great if you want to make sours. It does not seal. With the wing nut on top as tight as human hands can get it, there is still a 1/8" gap through both sides of what should be a seal. In other words, you can see light through the fermenter where a seal should be. I've tried using wrenches on the wing nut, electrical tape, and 1/2" binder clips around the "seal". The lack of CO2 through the airlock in an active fermentation and the sour result tells me that it's still not sealing. If you don't want to make sour beers or meads, save your money for something else.

Stout tech support provided a tip to seal the CF-12.
First take off the gasket then rotate the lid on the tank to find the best fit.
Mark the orientation on tank and lid.
Replace gaskets and tighten the hold down wing nut firmly.
No problem with seal after that.
