stainless steel conical fermenter

Conical fermenters are becoming increasingly popular in the brewing industry due to their many advantages over traditional cylindrical fermentors

Product description


If you have been making beer for a while, you understand the value of buying a conical fermenter. The best conical fermenters are conical near the bottom with an additional valve. This valve makes it easy to handle the yeast. In addition, it allows you to eliminate the yeast and clean the fermenter before recycling it. Depending on the proposed use of the fermenter, we may choose to purchase a stainless steel conical fermenter. The following are essential factors to consider before buying a fermenter

1. Size

Consider the amount of beer you want to brew and purchase the correct size fermenter. If you plan to use it for commercial purposes, consider buying a sizeable conical fermenter, which brews a large batch of beer and saves time. If you are planning to make small beers, then you can choose a micro-mixed conical fermenter which is relatively affordable.

2. Temperature control

The temperature level control dramatically determines the quality of the beer produced. Therefore, by choosing a fermenter that can easily control its temperature, we can be assured of a delicious beer when the temperature is adjusted.

3. Accessory equipment

They are fully assembling the effective conical fermenter. Unassembled conical fermenters require us to purchase the missing parts, which will increase the cost.

4. Storage of brewed beer

Many brewers prefer to store their beer in different tanks. Why? It can age and carbonate slowly. The longer the beer is fermented, the sweeter it becomes. If you want a unit storage tank, you can store the beer in the same storage tank where the beer was fermented.

5. Price

The price of plastic conical fermenters differs from stainless steel conical fermenters in that they are made using different products. The cost of the fermenter is essential in determining which size, type, and highest quality. The quantity depends on the country of production of the fermenter as well as the price of shipping. It is important to note that homemade plastic fermenters are relatively economical compared to commercial fermenters due to the size factor.

6. Valves

If you want to taste the beer without opening the fermenter, this is where our valves come into play. A typical valve is a butterfly valve, which removes yeast and debris. Choose a plug that is easy to clean if you want to use a variety of yeasts. The most efficient conical fermenter is both beneficial and economical. Its ability to collect yeast can recover it, thus helping you to recoup your investment. These are just a few of the essential factors we offer.

Why are fermenters conical?

Our fermenters are known for their conical shape, a question we are always asked by people who are just starting to brew beer. Due to the body itself and the effect of gravity on it, conical fermenters have several advantages. One of the first things we explain to newbies is that putting their beer through a secondary fermentation is the golden ticket to a great-tasting beer. Secondary fermentation allows you to do what you can't do with primary fermentation. But transferring the beer to a separate tank can ruin everything. Conical fermenters are designed to eliminate the need for sharing. With a conical fermenter, you can do both primary and secondary fermentation in the same vessel. The conical shape of the tank encourages sediment and yeast to fall to the bottom. Both can be drained through a valve. This means no more siphoning until you start the secondary fermentation process. One of the side benefits here is the ability to reuse yeast that is still alive. Reusing yeast can be more difficult when you take the beer from the primary fermenter and manually transfer it to another tank.
