  • FastFerment 7.9 Gallon Conical Fermenting Kit

    FastFerment 7.9 Gallon Conical Fermenting Kit

    FastFerment is your all in one fermentation solution. Eliminate 80% of sanitizing and cleaning with this affordable all in one conical fermentor. Conduct all stages of fermentation in this single vessel. Remove the trub from the bottom of the fermentor instead of transferring all your liquid to secondary. No siphons, no secondary fermenting vessel to sanitize, no extra bungs and airlocks. FastFerment produces dramatically better results. Start each batch by letting debris settle out into the collection ball before pitching your yeast! Remove the debris, and pitch into ultra clear wort. Plus, FastFerment minimizes the risk of oxidation and contamination by eliminating the need to transfer to a second vessel, preventing off flavors and infection. Keep your batch safe from external spoiling factors by keeping it in one place.
    Perfect for making beer, wine, or cider. Features: Easy Cleaning and Batch Stirring with a 6" (15cm) removable screw top lid, Total Capacity 7.9 US Gallons/ 30 Litres Made for 5 Gallon batches with blow offs, Easy Wall Mounting System Mounts to standard 16" (40cm) wall studs, 33% Bigger Valve for Increased Flow Rate 1" (2.5cm) Bottom valve compared vs. 3/4" (2cm), Collection Ball for Yeast Harvesting Save $100's & harvest your Yeast Strains!, Temperature Monitoring Capabilities ThermoWell included Thermometer Available.

  • FastFerment Extra Collection Ball

    FastFerment Extra Collection Ball

    Keep a lineup of your favorite yeast on hand with the extra collection balls for FastFerment Conical Fermenter. Yeast settles into the collection ball during fermentation. All you have to do is unscrew it, cap it, and set it in the refrigerator for later use. A single extra collection ball allows you to harvest one strain of yeast in the refrigerator while continuing to brew and collect trub in a second ball. Several collection balls allow for cost effective brewing and convenience with and endless supply of your favorite yeast. Features:Screws directly onto base of FastFerment. Collects yeast that settles out during fermentation. Allows you to save yeast for repeat brewing. Flat bottom and low profile stores easily in refrigerator. 700mL capacity. Includes ball, union, and stopper.

  • FastFerment Stand

    FastFerment Stand

    This sturdy stand provides a great alternative to wall mounting, and allows for easier access to your batches on the floor or tabletop. Plus, it breaks down for easy storage when not in use. The stand itself is 21" high, and attaching it will bring the height of your FastFerment to 39". There will still be plenty of space underneath for your yeast collection ball, too.
    CA$37.99
     
  • FastFerment Temperature Jacket

    FastFerment Temperature Jacket

    The FastFerment Insulated Jacket allows you to create the ideal temperature for your Brewing & WineMaking in FastFerment.
    It works with the Wall Mounts*** & with the Stand. In hot climates, add 2L bottles of ice to cool it down, switching them out every 2 5 days. In cool climates, simply add a heating pad. Sturdy nylon exterior. Waterproof thermo plastic inside. Dimensions: 20.5" diameter, 34" tall. How Does The Insulated Jacket Work? The Insulated Jacket works great up to a 30 degrees F drop below room temperature! It is easy to control the desired temperature by using frozen 2 liter bottles as follows: One frozen 1 liter bottle will result in a 2.5 degree F drop below room temperature. One frozen 2 liter bottle will result in a 5 degree F drop over below temperature. Two frozen 2 liter bottles will result in a 10 degree F drop below room temperature. Three frozen 2 liter bottles will result in a 15 degree F drop below room temperature. This method is scalable all the way up to around a 30 degree F drop below room temperature! A frozen 2 liter bottle typically does not thaw completely in 24 hours so it is easy to maintain a constant temperature drop. ***FastFerments produced before August of 2015 contain brackets that are not strong enough to hold the additional weight of the insulated jacket and necessary ice. Please see photo and ensure your brackets are compatible with the FastFerment Insulated Jacket.

  • FastFerment Thermometer

    FastFerment Thermometer

    Precise control of your fermentation temperature is one of the most effective ways to improve your homebrew beer or homemade wine. This thermometer fits directly into the thermowell on the side of your FastFerment. Exceptionally useful during the start of fermentation, when the lag between ambient temperature and actual temperature in the fermentor can vary greatly. Keep a thumb on the pulse of your fermentation for perfect, predictable results.

HISTORIC LANDMARKS OF OTTAWA..by Donna DeFalco
Donna is the daughter of our founding father, Dominic DeFalco, who started DeFalco’s Wine Cellars Inc. back in 1962. She was a commercial artist in her early years and she produced a magnificent series of prints which display the feeling of historical beauty of her hometown, Ottawa, Ontario. 
Donna’s artwork was just starting to get itself out there in the early 1980’s through local craft shows, business conferences, school billeting programs and a few gift shops around Ottawa when sadly, in 1984, Dominic passed away and she inherited the family business. With her time now being focused on this new adventure of running DeFalco’s, her artwork was put on hold.  Now that Donna is semi-retired, her team at DeFalco’s has decided it’s time to re-release these fabulous prints and make them more accessible for everyone to appreciate and enjoy. Her artwork is available at all three of our locations as well as at our online store. GREAT GIFT  IDEAS for office events, farwells, out of town guests, stocking stuffers, teachers, birthdays and anniversary gifts, company conventions.
