Absolutely love it

Everything about my experience dealing with spike has been top notch. I love everything about both my cf5s. I have zero complaints. I’ve read reviews about people having trouble with the lid gaskets. In my experience, if ya follow spikes instructions, the gasket stays in and won’t bleed pressure. Definitely take advantage of some the spike accessories to optimize this bad boy. Carb stone and racking arm make it easy to carbonate and transfer clear beer beer to your keg. With cold crashing and dumbing trub, I’ve had zero issues with clogs, even during closed transfers. I could go on for days, if ya got the money and are still on the fence about purchasing, I’d highly recommend taking the plunge!

This conical was my introduction to homebrewing along with the Spike Solo. I had been looking around for a while and finally took the plunge - something not terrible from COVID. I really don't think it could have turned out any better. I did purchase a few extras which likely helped - condenser lid to save my basement from humidity, TC-100 (to keep a consistent temperature during fermentation -heater - and then drop the temperature for the cold crash), carb stone (less than a day to carbonate) and the pressure transfer kit (kegging was simple). In the end my first batch was highly drinkable American Ale and gone too soon. Batch #2 is already 3 days in! Thanks for getting me up and running.

First purchase

The equipment is great, installation easy, and for the most part everything is perfect. There's a minor imperfection (a dent in the fermenter) but otherwise is perfect. Not enough to get mad. Looking forward to using it now.

I was really hesitant to purchase this just because this is a higer priced fermenter. but once I pulled the trigger and it showed up, I knew I made the right choice. The craftsmanship is top notch, every piece is solid and heavy, and it's gorgeous to look at. Its awesome you can add onto it to make it suit your needs (I may have already) and it just feels great to use something like this in your homebrew set up. Oh, and everyone that sees it is going to ask about it.
