55L plastic fermenter
Conical fermenter with pressure ideal for the winery, pilot batches and those intending to do yeast collection and washing.
Available on backorder
It comes with a whopping 55L tank which is ideal for pilot batches in a microbrewery, research laboratories and wineries. It is a cost-effective conical fermenter with a clear body that makes it easier to do observations and scientific experiments. (Please keep it away from UV light.)
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 2.4bar.
It is also used as a continuous brew system by many probiotics fermentery that are doing non-alcoholic beverages.
New and Improved:
1. Larger Dump Valve
2. Larger opening
3. Pressure rating 2.4bar (35psi)
Check the instructions and dimensional drawings before purchasing. Also please be compliant
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-molded thin-walled vessels. But don’t 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.
