FermZilla Conical Fermenter - 13.2 Gallon

  • Sale
  • Regular price $159.99


The new and improved 13.2 gallon (55L) FermZilla is brought to you by the critical key minds and engineers behind the original Fermentasaurus Gen 1. Although the original Fermentasaurus was revolutionary at the time of its conception, areas of improvement had been identified since. This is partly due to the strong community of Fermentasaurus users who have helped push for an improved conical unitank.
 
The new FermZilla is a revolution in home brewing allowing home brewers a level of control that meets everyone's budget.  With the FermZilla 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.
Add the optional pressure kit and turn your FermZilla into a true uni tank. 
Uni tanks are conical fermenters used both for fermentation and for carbonating and serving finished beer.
New and Improved:
  • Larger Dump Valve - 3" butterfly dump valve is more resistant to clogging from large amounts of trub
  • Larger Opening - 4.75" top port opening allows for easier cleaning

Care Instructions
Normal wear and tear may lead to stress marks or other potential points of failure when the tank is used under pressure. It is recommend to visually inspect the unit for signs of wear every 6-12 months, and conducting a hydro test every 2 years. The  hydro test process is simple:

  • Fill the tank to the brim with water
  • Replace the Red PRV with a PRV rated to 4.5 BAR or higher
  • Pressurize the tank to 4 BAR (58 psi)
  • Check for leaks, then replace the Red PRV when finished

If leaks or potential points of failure are found, replace the tank before you continue using pressure with your FermZilla.

Note: In general,  it is not recommend leaving products like PBW or StarSan soaking in the tank for more than an hour. Extended soaks have the potential to degrade the PET material and shorten the lifespan of the tank.
