Details

The Fermentor from Blichmann Engineering is the only weld-free interior fermentor on the market! Get peace of mine with clean, bacteria-free beer. Everything that touches your beer is heavy-gauge stainless steel or FDA-approved silicone. The Fermentor`s surface where the fittings penetrate are smooth with no weld `ripples` so it`s easy to clean and sanitize. The design is identical to hydraulic systems under thousands of PSI is also gaurenteed to be 100% leak-free.

  • Easy-to-Clean Weld-Free Fittings: All fittings used for the bottom dump and rotating racking arm are stainless steel high-quality industrial fittings not makeshift hardware store parts and pipe fittings. Unlike welded fittings these can be removed for easy cleaning by sanitizer, boiling, or autoclaving. Not least of all, the weld-free fittings allow you to orient the dump valve in any position you want. 
  • Rotating Racking Arm: The rotating racking arm is standard equipment just like the huge conical fermentors used by craft brewers. This lets you start your siphon with the racking arm horizontal and rotate it slowly downward until you start to pick up yeast sediment. This design utilizes stainless flare fittings in which bacteria can`t hide as they do in compression fittings. Plus, the valve handle shows you the position of the racking arm at all times.
  • Lid Hatch: The generously sized lid opening offers you easy, sanitary, access to your fermenting beer. Making it wasier to pitch yeast and minimize exposure of fermentables to oxidation and bacterial contamination when dry-hopping or adding finings as opposed to removing the lid entirely.
  • Bolted Leg System: The channel-shaped legs offer improved strength and appearance. An exclusive welding process is utilized to install fasteners on the tank wall leaving the interior of the tank spotless. Legs can be replaced in minutes if they are accidentlly damaged and most importatnly thy are affixed to the tank, so cleaning is much easier than if the tank simply sat on a stand.  
  • Pressure-Capable Stainless Lid: This eliminates the need to elevate the fermentor from above the kegs or bottling bucket. Ideal for chest freezers but is not intended for carbonation. 
  • Wine-Makers: The sealing system is far superior to wine tanks and completely impervious to oxygen forming a 100% pressure- and vacuum-tight seal so there`s no need for a floating lid. Most stainless wine fermenting tanks have a loose-fitting lid for primary fermentation (to vent gas) and a floating lid for secondary fermentation (to prevent oxygen infiltration). This floating lid has an inflatable seal `tire` with a bicycle pump and must be checked periodically to be sure it hasn`t deflated. It is also a source of bacterial contamination from fermentation material on the walls of the fermentor. During primary (alcoholic) fermentation the CO2 from fermentation blankets and protects the wine from oxidation.  After complete fermentation has been verified simply apply a positive pressure of an inert gas like Nitrogen or Argon with a low pressure regulator to keep oxygen out.  During sampling and dumping the lees the regulator will replace the drained wine and keep oxygen from entering. 
  • Improved Lid Seal: An exclusive bead molded into the seal profile offers improved sealing on the tank lip and further protection of your fermentables from contamination. Its top-quality silicone material has improved bond strength for excellent sealing and temperature capability for long life. Plus the softer material conforms better to the irregular tank surface for outstanding sealing capability far superior to all competitors.
  • Folding Handles: Handles fold neatly away when not in use, how fun!
  • Ultra Low-Profile Design: The Fermenator can easily be placed in a full-size refrigerator or freezer for maintaining fermentation temperatures at a fraction of the cost of immersion coolers. Plus there`s no worry about sanitation!  
  • Leg Pads: Plastic leg pads protect your counters and refrigerator from scratches.
