    I held off as I wasnt 100% convinced I want one. Looks like Ive now got until the 18th August to decide. KK must be spewing about all these lost sales to KL and there new version of the Fermentasuarus would want to be good to win customers back again.

    Reckon you are right but then again they seem to have sold a lot of the snub nose units from what I can see. I would love to get a preview of what is coming but they don't seem to be as keen as KL to show stuff that they don't yet have available. The temp control idea is what has me going.

    How many lost sales? From what I have been reading there only seems to be a handful of punters who actually have them. I also think the shoe is on the other foot with all the snub nose fermenters which have been sold, not only here but also USA.

    Ohh ok, I certainly dont know how many KL got shipped in, was it just 50, 100, 300, or up around 1000?? But whatever it was they sold out. I also didnt know that KK were selling lots of the snub nose here and in the USA.

    Especially if it is the same many hundreds of punters who bought the Canular Canning machine, who have been buying the Fermzillas, I don't trust them they are to secretive.:)

    If you want to advertise the fermentasaurus do it the fermentasaurus thread. This is the fermzilla thread.

    OK so went to do a pressure transfer last night but the lid will not seal. I didnt ferment under pressure so didnt realise until last night.
    Air is escaping between the 2 pieces of lid. There is an undamaged o ring in the insert piece and that fits in nce and snug. Ive had it tight and bloody tight but still just gushes out. Any ideas?
    Cheers

    I went and lost an o-ring for one of my carb caps. Any ideas where I can get a replacement?
