FermZilla 55 Liter Conical Fermenter

FermZilla 55 Liter Conical Fermenter

More Info

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

With the 55 Liter FermZilla (13.2 gallons) 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. This is sized for 10 gallon batches. 45″ tall with airlock installed. 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 Stainless Handle
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:
Spunding Valve Kit
Extra Collection Jar

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 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. 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. 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.

Maximum temperature is 130 degrees F., if you pour boiling or near boiling wort into this unit, you will ruin it, and heat damage is not covered by warranty.


 

This is is discounted to just $119.99 via William’s Brewing Winter Clearance Sale.

Shipping is free or reasonably priced flat rate to addresses in the contiguous US depending on your order size for most items.

Convert it to a Keg!  The Fermzilla Molded Pressure Kit Add On, available on the product page, effectively converts this to a ball lock keg.

Hands On Review: German Made Speidel Fermenters

Hands on Review Speidel Fermenters

German Made, Speidel Fermenters are available in a range of sizes 3.2 gallons all the way up to… 132 gallons.  Check out the full lineup including accessories and replacement gaskets.

I’ve owned a 5.3 gallon Speidel fermenter since October of 2011.  I use it for small batch BIAB beers.  I’ve been very impressed with that fermenter.  More recently, I picked up the 7.9 gallon version so that I can ferment full 5 gallon batches with all the same advantages.  This is a hands on review of both fermenters.

Hands on Review: Spike Conical Fermenters + LIMITED Time Deal

spike conical review

This review is by Homebrew Finds Reader Benji S.  Benji has been brewing for 10 years.  His favorite style is Festbier.  He’s an all grain brewer and member of WIZA (Whidbey Island Zymurgy Association).  Check him out on Instagram at neon_hop


Limited Time Deal, Review Continues Below:

As of this posting, Spike has several conical models (including the very popular CF5 and CF10) discounted via their Bargain Cave

Deals on Spike gear are rare and Bargain Cave deals can be particularly limited.  If you’re interested my suggestion would be to act quickly.

Spike Brewing Equipment Bargain Cave


After well over a year of evaluating, I splurged recently and got a Spike Conical (the CF5). I’ve seen quite a few others going through this debate period, so I wanted to provide a hot take to help others in their own decision making process. So far I’ve assembled and prepped it for my first brews, but haven’t actually used it yet. Most of the points here will be about equipment quality/features rather than practice.

For context; I added on the temp control bundle with heater, leg extensions, casters, extended bracing shelf, and a few other nice to haves. So some of these will cover things that aren’t part of the “core” conical package.

Grainfather Conical Pro Edition – On Sale for $556

The Grainfather Conical Fermenter Pro Edition - 7 gal. FE231

The Grainfather Conical Fermenter Pro Edition – 7 gal from MoreBeer

More Info

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

Whether you’re new to their products, or you’re a Grainfather Electric Brewing System diehard, this fermenter is sure to take the quality of your brew to new heights. MoreBeer! is proud to offer the Grainfather Conical Fermenter Pro Edition. But be warned: this is not your Granpappy’s fermenter.

Brewer’s turn to conical shaped fermenters when they desire an easy way to dump and harvest yeast, and Grainfather took that mentality a step further with the purpose built dual-valve bottom tap. Where other dump valves can leave a mess behind, this uniquely designed bottom tap makes yeast harvesting, sampling, and transferring a clean and convenient process.

Temperature control has been well documented as an essential part of the fermentation process, and the Grainfather Pro Edition Conical turns this critical stage into a leisurely enterprise. Not only can you adjust the temperature with the push of a button, the Temperature Controller on the Pro Edition can be programed with up to four unique schedules, so you don’t have to remember to step up the temp on days 3 and 5. Set it, and forget it! For even more control, upgrade with the Cooling Pump Kit (FE234) to manage cooling.

With an 8 gallon maximum capacity, you can ferment even the highest gravity 5-gallon batches without the risk of krausen blowing out the top. And thanks to the double-walled 304 stainless steel body, this unit aims to remain in the family for generations to come.

Features:

Double Walled: A stainless steel double walled skin is filled with a thick layer of polyurethane foam for insulation. This is what keeps the wort at a constant stable temperature with minimal influence from any external environmental temperature changes, providing insulation for your fermentation that a standard jacket cannot achieve.

Integrated Gentle Heating: In the cavity of the fermenter between the outer body and cone sits a 30 Watt, 12V heating element. Unlike standard heating elements/sources that directly heat the liquid, this heat source is designed to heat the environment in between the walls of the fermenter, which in turn heats the liquid. It is similar to controlling the temperature in a temperature controlled room. The fermenter acts as an artificial environment which can be heated, meaning the temperature is raised in an even and controlled manner which is much better for the yeast.

Integrated Cooling Sleeve: In between the two stainless steel walls sits a cooling sleeve (also made of stainless steel). This cooling sleeve is welded onto the inner wall of the fermenter and can be hooked up to the additionally purchased Glycol Chiller. Temperature is dialed into the Temperature Controller and as the cooling liquid travels through this sleeve, it cools the stainless steel which in turn evenly cools the beer in the fermenter. The cooling sleeve never comes into contact with the beer, it is completely concealed, built into the fermenter and never needs cleaning or sanitizing – a true innovation for a fermenter of this scale.

Easy Access to the Interior for Hassle Free Cleaning: The Grainfather Conical Fermenter has a smooth interior with no additions such as cooling coils or additional sampling valves meaning it is easy to clean and minimizes the risk of infection.

Golden Angle Conical: The conical shape of the fermenter is typical for professional breweries. Our conical has been designed with the ‘Golden Angle’ of 60º. This is the optimum angle for yeast and sediment to drop down to the bottom of the cone without getting stuck to the sides, allowing you to transfer from above the sediment line, resulting in clearer beer. The conical shape also allows for better mixing during fermentation due to the path of convection currents that it enables to occur.

Dual Valve Tap: Make the yeast dumping, transferring and sampling process more professional with this innovative all in one valve. Sampling and transferring is done through an inlet above the sediment line, allowing for clear, sediment free beer. Easily collect your yeast from below the sediment line with the same unique valve for recultivating and pitching. The innovative design of the valve allows for this dual functionality and less cleaning for you.

Temperature Control: The Temperature Controller easily snaps on and replaces the standard Temperature Display via magnets and pogo pins. Allowing you to accurately dial in a temperature and even set a temperature schedule/profile (you can set up to 4 profiles each with 5 stages). It can control the heating of the integrated heating element and the cooling (if you have upgrade to the Glycol Chiller).

  • Conical Fermenter
  • Fermenter Lid
