After years in development, we feel we have the best small batch size stainless steel conical fermentor on the market.  This model is an 8 gallon volume which has plenty of headspace for batches to 6.5 gallons.  All of our fermentors are fully welded and polished internally and externally.

The Features That Make Our Fermentors Unique

  • Our lid design is a simple and easy to use Tri Clover compatible cap.  No lid with a proprietary gasket to deal with, Tri Clover Compatible gaskets are readily available and affordable enough to keep extras on hand.  Our 8 gallon model has a 12" lid for easy cleaning. The lid features a 3" Tri Clover Compatible access port for dry hopping or fining and can mount our 3" Tri Clover Compatible CIP Spray Ball. There are three addtional 1.5" ports for the included thermowell and 3/4" blow-off nipple.
  • Triple Sealed rotating racking arm.  All of the higher end conical fermentors on the market have a rotating racking arm, but most are dependent on just the TC gasket to seal it.  When you loosen the clamp to rotate the arm, you're faced with a tricky balance of loosening it enough to rotate without it leaking.  We've solved that issue by adding 2 additional o-rings ahead of the Tri Clover compatible clamp attachment, eliminating the leaking issue and isolating that joint from your wort.  The o-rings are captured on the arm itself so they are easily removed for cleaning and sanitizing.  The ferrule on the body of the fermentor is a standard 1.5" ferrule with no special machining.

Standard Items Included with our 8 Gallon Stainless Steel Conical Fermentor

  • 1.5" Tri Clover Compatible Butterfly valve for the bottom dump, including a 1.5" sanitary 90 degree elbow and 1.5" Tri Clover Compatible X 1.5" hose barb adapter
  • 1" Tri Clover Compatible Butterfly valve for the rotating racking arm, including a 1/2" hose barb adapter
  • 1.5" Tri Clover Compatible X 16" sanitary thermowell.
  • All of the required clamps and gaskets to be able to use your fermentor when you get it.

Fermenter vs. Fermentor; what's the difference?

For years now, we have seen both terms used interchangeably on web sites and forums. In order to be technically accurate, we did a little research to find out the difference between a fermentor and a fermenter. It turns out that a fermenter is an organism that causes or performs fermentation. A fermentor is the container or apparatus in which fermentation occurs. So your new fermenter is actually a fermentor and yeast is the fermenter! Does that make your wort the fermentee? I think this requires some more research.
