TWO Freebies Fermzilla Purchase – FREE Pressure Kit and Bottle Opener

Fermzilla Molded Pressure Kit via William’s Brewing

More Info

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

This kit fits both the 27 and 55 Liter Fermzilla and turns the Fermzilla into a true uni tank, which is a conical fermenter for fermenting, carbonating, and dispensing. Includes two ball lock connectors that will accept either a gas or beer ball lock, a 22″ food grade silicone hose, and a stainless float ball so you always draw the clearest beer first. The plastic threads are safer to use on the plastic Fermzilla lid than stainless threads.

One of the primary uses is to ferment under pressure which reduces ester production and fusel alcohol production. That means that you can ferment warmer than you normally would, even making lagers at room temperature. Most commercial beer is fermented under pressure just due to the size of commercial tanks and the pressure that is created by the column of beer. It is one of the differences between commercial brewing and homebrewing. The Fermzilla lid has a built in relief valve that will blow at 35psi and with this kit you can also attach an external ball lock spundling valve (not included) to fine tune the pressure release.

When you are fermenting under pressure the beer is already carbonated when you are done fermenting. You can control the level of carbonation by using an adjustable pressure relief. The idea is that the FermZilla can eliminate kegging and you can serve directly from the fermenter. This saves a lot of labor and cleaning, but there will probably still be times that you want to keg. With this kit, use a ball lock beer line to connect the FermZilla to your keg and enjoy the easiest kegging experience ever. You can also choose to send carbonated beer through a beer filter on the way to your keg.

Because the beer always has a CO2 blanket through fermentation and during any transfers out, oxidation is eliminated. When you cold crash you won’t be sucking air back in through an airlock.

• Ferment beer under pressure to reduce ester and fusel alcohol production
• Ability to always draw clear beer with the unique, floating draw tube
• Keg already carbonated beer
• Use co2 to push beer into a keg or though a filter into a keg
• Carbonate and serve beer directly from the FermZilla, eliminating kegging all together

Kegco 7 Gallon Wide Mouth Glass Carboy Fermenter + Carrying Straps – $46.45 + free shipping

Kegco 7 Gallon Wide Mouth Glass Carboy Fermenter Homebrew Beer & Wine Making

Kegco 7 Gallon Wide Mouth Glass Carboy Fermenter

More Info

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

  • 7 gallon capacity can brew up to a 6 gallon batch of beer (6 gallon to top line before bottle curves)
  • Plastic lid provides an airtight seal but has a removable cap that can be replaced with an airlock to release pressure during fermentation
  • Smooth glass surface does not scratch easily, making it less likely to harbor bacteria or odors
  • The wide opening allows you to reach inside the jar which makes for easy and thorough cleaning
  • Strong nylon straps allow you to safely move the carboy from place to place

This Kegco 7 Gallon Wide Mouth Glass Carboy is the ideal fermentation vessel, allowing you to brew up to 6 gallons without having to worry about the kraeusen clogging up your airlock on big beers. It features a wide mouth design that makes it easy to reach inside of the jar to add or remove ingredients and to clean every inch of the interior. Because the smooth glass surface does not scratch easily, these jars are easy to sanitize and will not harbor bad odors or flavors. They do not break down like plastic carboys and buckets, and will provide decades of superior performance if handled with care. The plastic lid features a silicone seal that creates an airtight seal on the jar, and you can install an airlock in the recessed area of the lid to release gasses during fermentation. When you install the included breather cap and fill the recessed area with sanitizer, gas will bubble out without allowing oxygen or other contaminants in. This carboy comes with nylon strap handles that helps take the hassle out of transportation.

Tip: Get Food Grade Buckets for Cheap – or free

Satin Ice Rolled Fondant Icing White 20 PoundsPictured: Satin Ice Rolled Fondant Icing White 20 Pounds via eBay – For illustrative purposes, I’m not suggesting that you buy this.  Read the tip below.

For years, I have suggested to homebrewers that bottle – make friends with your local craft beer bartenders.  Especially beer spots that carry heavy glass, refillable German and Belgian types of bottles.  These bottles are beautiful and well made and the labels generally come off very easily.  If you make friends with your local purveyor of quality craft beers you can usually grab these bottles for free or for the cost of bottle deposit.  You’ve saved some beautiful bottles for re-use, helped your homebrew standout by using awesome bottles and saved some money.

How about making friends with your local baker or donut shop?  The reason you may want to do that is, first you could eat a donut and those are pretty tasty.  Second, bakeries and donut shops sometimes purchase icing in 5 or 6 gallon buckets.  Those buckets should be food safe, since they… already have food in them.  The trash to treasure principal applies here.  Bakeries that use these have an abundance of them with no great place to send them other than the trash or possibly recycling.  Make friends with your local baker and you may just score some free or near free food safe buckets for fermenting, grain storage and general around the brewery use.

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.

  2. Larger Opening – 4.75″ top port opening allows for easier cleaning

  • FermZilla 27L Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve
  • Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
  • Top Lid with PRV (35 psi)
  • 1000 ml Collection Container & Lid

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.
