Fermenator™ Conical Fermentors
100% Stainless Steel Construction No need to pay extra to upgrade to all stainless. Everything that touches your beer is heavy gauge stainless steel. No need to worry about what options to buy…it’s all standard equipment!
Weld-free Interior The Fermenator™ is the only weld-free interior fermentor on the market! No stress about bacteria hiding in weld cracks or porosity found in all welds. Even so-called sanitary welds. The surfaces of the Fermenator™ where the fittings penetrate are smooth (no weld ripples) so it is a snap to clean and sanitize. Although the weld-free fittings are more expensive than welded fittings, we think it's well worth it for peace of mind and clean, bacteria-free beer.
Guaranteed 100% Leak Free! Stainless retainers hold o-rings firmly in place, eliminating any chance of rolling or leaking. The sealing design is identical to hydraulic systems under thousands of PSI.
Easy to clean Weld-Free fittings All fittings used for the bottom dump and rotating racking arm are stainless steel high quality industrial fittings, not make shift hardware store parts and pipe fittings. And unlike welded fittings, these can be removed for easy sanitizing by chemical, boiling, or autoclaving. Competitor's welded-in fittings can't be replaced if they get accidentally damaged or wear out! Weld-free fittings allow you to orient the dump valve in any position you want.
Rotating Racking Arm is standard equipment Just like commercial conical fermentors. This feature allows you to start your siphon with the racking arm horizontal, and rotate it slowly downward until you just start picking up yeast sediment. Clearly the best and only way to siphon clear beer! And using the racking arm prevents wasting beer or carrying sediment into your kegs, which always happens when using a bottom dump to rack beer.
Patent Pending Lid Hatch Easy sanitary access to your fermenting beer. Hatch minimizes exposure to oxygen and contamination as opposed to removing the entire lid. The generously sized hatch is much better for pitching yeast compared to a small stopper hole.
Patent Pending Bolted Leg System Higher strength and spotless interior. An exclusive welding process is utilized to install fasteners on the tank wall leaving the interior of the tank absolutely flawless and superior to TIG welded designs where weld distortion (rippling) is unavoidable. Legs can be replaced in minutes if they are accidentally damaged.
Pressure Capable Stainless Lid Just like commercial fermentors. Use CO2 pressure to pump your finished beer up to 6ft above your fermenator to your kegs. Eliminates the need for elevating the fermentor above the kegs or bottling bucket. Ideal for use in chest freezers!. Not intended for carbonation.
For Winemakers: The Fermenator™ forms a 100% pressure and vacuum tight seal so no need for a floating lid! The sealing system is far superior to most wine tanks and is completely impervious to oxygen.
Improved Lid Seal Excellent sealing and long life. Exclusive bead molded into the seal profile offers improved sealing on the tank lip further protecting your beer from contamination. Top quality silicone material has improved bond strength and temperature capability for long life, and the softer material conforms better to the irregular tank surface for outstanding sealing capability.
Folding Handles fold neatly away when not in use and stay connected to the unit at all times.
Ultra Low Profile Design The Fermenator™ can easily be placed in a full size refrigerator or freezer for maintaining fermentation temperatures at a fraction of the cost of expensive immersion coolers, which also consume more electricity than most refrigerators.
Leg Pads Plastic feet help protect your floors, counters and refrigerator from scratches.
Optional Bolt-On Leg Extensions to raise the unit for easy siphoning into a bottling bucket or keg.
