Normally I only like to post items on my blog that I actually get to use or to test, but this one I am making an exception for. I took a look at this product and thought based on the price and it’s uses it may come in handy for those brewers using carboys. Unfortunately, I don’t have carboys to purchase and test this out on and I don’t want to purchase carboys simply for testing. The FermentArmor is more than just a carboy carrier, it’s also a light shield, and a temperature insulator from ambient swings. But take a look below at the information provided by the creator and their kickstarter page. I will also mention that I am not being compensated for posting this, this is honestly just something I thought many of you would find useful, and it’s nice to get on the front side of a kickstarter sometimes.
Anyone who brews naturally has a creative side. It shows up not only in the unique recipes they create, but also in the equipment they use. But the one thing every brewer has in common is that they’ll do anything they can to keep light away from their beer, but they don’t always do it effectively. I myself used cardboard boxes for a long time, which just wasn’t that great to look at and didn’t keep my brew in total darkness.
So I created the FermentArmour Brewing Sleeve, a product now being sold on Kickstarter. FermentArmour will protect your carboy from harmful light in a way that makes you look more like a professional brewmaster than a mad scientist. It’s made of the same quality fabric as wetsuits, and its two short handles make it easy to carry around when needed. It also looks damn sexy — well, as sexy as a glass carboy can get. The fabric itself helps regulate the temperature of your beer, making sure that it never gets too hot or too cold as the temperature of the room changes.
