FermZilla Conical Fermenter – 7.1 gal. / 27 L

The new and improved FermZilla, a 27 liter conical fermenter brought to you by the critical key minds and engineers behind the original Fermentasaurus Gen 1. Although the original Fermentasaurus was revolutionary at the time of its conception, there are always areas to improve upon. This is partly due to the strong community of Fermentasaurus users who have helped push for an improved conical unitank.

New and Improved:

  1. Larger Dump Valve – 3″ butterfly dump valve is more resistant to clogging from large amounts of trub
  2. Larger Opening – 4.75″ top port opening allows for easier cleaning
  3. Less Headspace – more appropriately sized for 5-gallon batches. Purging the headspace of oxygen is easier and more effective.

What’s Included:

  • FermZilla 27L Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve
  • Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
  • Top Lid with PRV (35 psi)
  • 1000 ml Collection Container & Lid
  • 3-Piece Airlock
  • Graduation Sticker
  • Adhesive Thermometer
  • Strap Wrench
  • Spare Seals

Specs:

  • 27 L (7.1 gal) Total Volume
  • Pressure Rated to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi)
  • Temperature Rated to 122°F (high temp replacement tank coming soon!)
  • Height in Stand – 28.3″
  • Height w/ Airlock – 32.7″
  • Tank Diameter – 13.9″
  • Diameter in Stand – 15.7″

Limited Quantities: 10 and 15 Gallon Torpedo Ball Lock Kegs! + Hands on Review

 New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

New 10 & 15 Gal. Torpedo Kegs!

From MoreBeer:

Look out below! The Torpedo Keg Depth Charge series just dropped and they’re set to send blast waves through the homebrew world. Large-scale homebrewers will appreciate the ability to fit their entire batch into a single 10 or 15 gallon ball lock keg, and you can expect the same great features that have made Torpedo Kegs such a hit. Laser welded construction for superior quality, rolled stainless steel handles that will last a lifetime, and stackable design that won’t interfere with your fittings.

To learn more and order your Torpedo Kegs, click here


Thoughts from HBF: This is a great entry into the homebrewing keg market.  Larger 10 and 15 gallon kegs are tough to find and even more difficult to find at a reasonable price.  The current prices, $219 for a 15 gallon keg and $199 for a 10 gallon keg are.. bargains, especially considering that they ship for free to many US addresses.  Beyond kegging larger homebrew batches these can be used as fermenters.

Update:  MoreBeer fully expects to sell out of this first batch relatively soon.  More will be on the way, but, it will take some time.  I’ve you’ve been thinking about picking one or more of these up, my suggestion is to do it sooner rather than later.

Hands on Review!  Check our my in depth Hands on Review of the 10 gallon version of this keg.

13.2 Gallon Kegland Kegmenter Stainless Fermentor – $209.99 via William’s Brewing Anniversary Sale

Kegmenter

13.2 Gallon Stainless Steel Kegmenter via William’s Brewing.  Ferment and transfer under pressure or ferment and serve directly from the Kegmenter.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

The Kegmenter is a 13.2 gallon 304 stainless keg with a 4” diameter tri clover lid on the top. Ball lock fittings with dip tubes are built into the lid so you can use this as either a large ball lock keg or a 10 gallon fermenter. The beer dip tube features a silicone hose and floating pick up ball, to collect the clearest beer from the top of the keg.

The Kegmenter features a 50 PSI rating (with relief valve) so it can be used as a keg or as a pressurized fermenter if desired. The 4” diameter lid makes it easy to clean out, and adds the ability to add dry hops and other additives either during a ferment or after kegging.

The ability to hold up to 50 PSI also means the Kegmenter can be used with an adjustable pressure relief valve (see item P84 below) to naturally carbonate in the keg, or to push beer out when the ferment is done with C02, either into smaller kegs, a filter, or even dispense from the fermenter if desired. 23” tall, 17” wide.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • 💫Easy Operation💫 You can instantly monitor the humidity and the temperature with our hygrometer, the data of indoor and outdoor will display on the LCD at the same time. The temperature measurement range of the thermometer is -58~257°F, and the humidity measurement range is 10~95%.
  • 💫Elegant Design💫The stylish hygrometer is equipped with a large backlight LCD and it has a clip on it’s back, you can place it at anywhere steadily, or you can also fix it on the wall as the receiver has a hole on the back surface.
  • 💫Instant Read💫The transmission distance of the digital hygrometer is up to 300 feet, and the data will update in 10 seconds, you can monitor the humidity and the temperature instantly without checking the transmitter constantly and get ready for the changes in the weather.
  • 💫External Probe💫Our probe can be put into most kinds of liquid to measure the temperature, you can use it in a pool or in a brewhouse. As the probe is fine, you can also use it in narrow places or relatively closed environment.

 

Thoughts from HBF… So, this has two wireless sensors along with an ambient thermometer that’s built into the main unit.  It also records minimum and maximum temps for each sensor.  You could use one sensor in your fermentation chamber and one sensor in your kegerator to monitor temperatures.  Or, you could use the wireless probe for your kegerator or fermentation chamber and the base unit to track ambient temps.  The min and max feature would also give you a great idea about how things are working.  As a bonus you also get all the same info for the ambient temp where the base is located.  Note that the sensors need to be within the stated range of this unit (or closer).

FREE Pressure Transfer Kit with FermZilla Conical Fermenter Purchase – stacks with Anniversary Sale

FermZilla 27 Liter Conical Fermenter

FermZilla 27 Liter Conical Fermenter via William’s Brewing

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

With the FermZilla you have the many of the benefits of a much more expensive stainless conical fermenter but with the additional benefit of being able to see the fermentation process in action and also ferment at pressures up to 30 PSI. See the videos and the instructions below for more details.

Included In The Box:
1 x Fermzilla Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve Parts (Pre-Assembled & Attached)
1 x Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
1 x Top Lid with Red PRV (35psi) [2 x Male Cap Threads] [Up to 4 drill ports for accessories] 1 x Top Lid Screw Cap 1 x 1000mL Collection Container & Lid* [2 x Male Cap Threads] 1 x KegLand Adjustable Easy Opening Tool
1 x Premium 3 Piece Airlock
1 x Approximate Graduations Sticker
1 x Strip Stick On Thermometer
1 x Grommet Bottle Cap (Airlock Port)
1 x Bag Spare Seals

Available options include:
Pressure Kit
Spunding Valve Kit
Zippered Insulated Jacket
Extra Collection Jar

Please note: When using this vessel under pressure. You must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this. Fill your FermZilla up with water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel. Check for leaks around all Cap / Threads. Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large blow-moulded thin-walled vessels. But dont panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this. This was a necessary implementation into the design so that they can withstand some accidental suction from cold crashing and rough handling in transit without compromising their integrity and ability to endure high pressures. All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns or have damaged the plastic.
