MoreBeer’s 7.5 Gallon Temp Controlled Conical, Refurbished… $1,199, Save $500!

9925

7.5 Gallon Heated and Cooled Conical from MoreBeer

More Info

from MoreBeer…

Ferment 5 gallon batches of beer in these beautiful conical fermenters, and control the temperature of your fermenting beer to within 1 degree, any time of the year! The included Dual-Stage Controller will simultaneously control both the cooling unit and the 40-Watt heater. The cooling unit mounts to the outside of the cone with no internal contact with the beer. The cooling is extremely gentle on your yeast, changing wort temperatures at about a degree an hour. It can get to and hold your ale fermentation temperatures of 65-72 Fahrenheit all the way up to ambient temps of 100 Fahrenheit. In addition, it can get to and hold lager fermentation temperatures of 48-52 Fahrenheit all the way up to ambient temperatures of 80 Fahrenheit.

The Leg Extension Option (CONP770) is needed if you wish to gravity feed into a keg. If you would like to use CO2 to push your beer into a keg, you will need the CO2 Adapter Package (CONP775).

Cooling is made to work with 5 to 6 gallon batches.  Please note that when dropping temperature, your fermenting wort will contract and may pull liquid from your blowoff bucket into the fermentor.  This may also occur when dumping trub from the bottom port, or when racking from the racking arm.

Testing Kegerator Temperature Probe Placement

Kegerator Temperature Probe Placement

Where Should I Place My Kegerator Temperature Probe?

After my test on the effects of a recirculating fan on kegerator temperatures (See: Kegerator Beer Line Temperatures & Reducing Foam with a Recirculating Fan), I decided to test the effects of kegerator temperature probe placement.  I went with three configurations: Immersed vs Ambient Non-Immersed vs… Zip Tied to a Beer Can.  Those tests yielded some interesting findings.
