Conical Fermenters | Glycol-Jacketed

Stainless Steel Fermentation Tanks

Jacketed Fermenters

A conical fermenter allows for the fermentating and the aging/storing of the brewing process to occur in the same vessel. The cone bottom collects the sediment which is then easily removed by slowly opening a bottom valve until the liquid runs clear, leaving the beer to age. For this reason they are often referred to as "Uni-Tanks" as opposed to their flat-bottom counterparts that require transferring beer to a secondary conditioning tank to separate the sediment.

Modern commercial conical fermenters have the advantage of being made from stainless steel which can be reused indefinitely, is impregnable to odors and discoloration, and can be sanitized easily. Most jacketed fermenters sit atop legs and thus allow siphoning to occur through gravity. Additionally, yeast can be drawn off at any point during fermenting, to be washed and reused again. These features yield considerable cost and time savings for commercial breweries, as well as faster turn-over rates for batches. Glycol-jacketed fermenters have the added benefit of an efficient cooling system built right into the tank.

Please see Specifications for additional upgrade options and information.

We also carry non-jacketed conical fermenters.

Stainless steel conical fermenters are available for commercial, industrial and homebrew applications. All fermentation tanks are made from food grade sanitary stainless steel with a 3-4 mm thickness an interior sanitary finish with exterior side walls in a #4 dairy finish. Each fermenter has a dish top with cylindrical body and a 60 degree cone bottom. All stainless steel fermentation tanks are rated for up to 14.7 PSI and tested at 30 PSI, and come standard with 25% head space on top of working volume, a rotating racking arm, and our 1 year warranty. Fermenting tanks are ideal for improving the quality of beer as well as breeding yeast. Each conical fermenter is beautifully designed for the discriminating commercial brewer and loaded with many standard features that provide industrial brewery functionality for all brewers alike.
