Blichmann has done it again! They just released their new Cornical Fermenter based homebrew fermenter. The Cornical is the latest fermentor from Blichmann who has a long history of creating top quality home brewing fermenters. The Cornical is made from two main pieces; the first being a modular home brewing keg with a removable base. The modular design makes cleaning it a snap. The second part of the Cornical is a stainless steel conical bottom that attaches to the keg turning it into a homebrewing fermentor. Unlike most homebrewing fermenter, the Cornical is rated all the way up to 50 psi, allowing a home brewer to carbonate right in the fermenter. When fermentation finished, if desired you can replace the bottom of the keg and serve right from the Cornical. The modular design allows you to use the conical bottom to ferment another batch on a different keg while you drink your first batch! Here are some of the features of the Blichmann Cornical Home Brewing Fermenter:

I would love to get one of these, but I do not think it would fit in my fermentation chamber unfortunately.
