Nice fermentor, the company made some small changes we requested with out any hesitation, the only issue was there were a few minor weld defects which could have been improved, they are very receptive to the feed back and we are considering them for further work.

I looked at a lot of stills and found that buying a cheap one would be throwing away money. So I checked out professional built and designed stills. I looked on e-bay, Amazon and private companies in the US and found the best deal on Alibaba with Wenzhou Ace Machine. Great to communicate with, patient, respond quickly and professional. It's built as solid as it looks, like a tank. It should last a long time.
