Home beer brewing fermenters, stainless steel brewing fermenters and stainless homebrewing buckets!
Back when home brewing first started out, you were pretty limited on choices when it came to fermenters. Back then it was basically a plastic bucket or if you were fancy, a glass carboy. But now, you have a variety of options. There is everything from cost effective stainless steel brewing buckets all the way up to stainless steel conical fermenters with digital temperature controllers. I have compiled a list of some the best choices when it comes to stainless steel home brewing fermenters. Simply click the image for more details on the fermenter you like.
Estimated Retail: $1,799 This 14 Gallon Stainless Steel Temperature Controlled Conical Fermenter is designed to be the fastest cooling conical fermenter around. There are two cooling blocks on the outside of the cone with no internal contact with the beer. This stainless steel conical fermenter can hold your ale fermentation temperatures of 65-72 Fahrenheit at ambient temperatures of up to 120 Fahrenheit. In can also hold lager fermentation temperatures of 45-50 Fahrenheit all the way up to ambient temperatures of 100 F. The special domed lid has it’s own cover, made from our heavy-duty foam insulation, for better temperature control.
Estimated Retail: $499 This staineless steel conical fermenter has a full cone, terminating in a Full Port 1.5″ opening. This makes dumping trub or harvesting yeast through the included valve very easy! Sanitary TIG welded fittings insure years of rustless contamination free brewing! A Rotating Racking Arm is set halfway up the cone, allowing for the racking of trub free beer, regardless of how high your trub reaches. A weldless thermowell allows for easy temperature monitoring and control. Click the link or image to order one.
Estimated Retail: $225 A stainless steel home brewing brew bucket fermenter is a quick and inexpensive way to upgrade your home brewery. A Brew Bucket fermenter is similar in many ways to the larger conical fermenters, but at a fraction of the cost. This Stainless Steel BrewBucket is made out of 304 Stainless Steel. In some ways these small batch stainless steel Brew Buckets are better than large conical fermentors. For instance, the Brew Bucket can be stacked during fermentation, even with an airlock attached. You can also split batches into multiple fermentors more cost effectively in the case where you want to add different types of fruits to different batches or use different yeast strains.
Estimated Retail: $511 This 14 gallon stainless steel conical fermentor features a weld-free interior and a dump valve for removing yeast and sediment. It also includes a swingable racking arm for transferring your fermented beer. Prior to bottling or kegging, you can dump your yeast and trub out of the bottom, making for a very clean transfer. The lid has a removable hatch that is pressure capable which allows you to transfer using CO2 pressure to minimize oxydization.
Estimated Retail: $799 This half barrel fermenter is perfect for large scale home brewing! The lid is easy to remove and is sealed in place with a molded silicone gasket. Full capacity to the rim of fermenter is 17 gallons, and with domed lid and a blowoff setup (see You Might Also Need section below), ferments can go cleanly! Laser Etched Gallon Markers inside denote what volume of brew you are working with. Eight spring-loaded Lid Clamps hold the lid in place insuring that your fermenter is airtight, and can be pressurized for easy transfers.
