SABCO Fermenter – 15.5 Gal.
Things you need to know about ‘conical’ design fermenters . . .
- Multiple studies with professional tastings indicate that off flavors from dead yeast begin to occur only after 5-7 weeks in a fermenter
- Even after 5-7 weeks many tasting judges agree that such flavor changes can actually be beneficial
- Most all brewers move the beer after 2-3 weeks to conditioning and/or serving vessels to return the fermenter to service
- Dumping yeast from a conical does not dump all the yeast, but it does cloud your nice clear beer!
- The use of a racking arm above the settled yeast can easily be employed to remove clear beer without creating yeast haze.
- Conicals can be cumbersome to clean, often top-heavy and may need casters for easier handling.
- If you use large fermenters for small batches, you waste space, energy and gain extra cleanup
- Temperature control most always comes at a higher price.
- Many HB suppliers claim sanitary welds but then use threaded type valves and bulk-head gasketed fittings. Terrible to clean! Compare with SABCO’s all sanitary designs.
