- Product Details
- The Blichmann Engineering Fermenator is the ultimate in home fermentation. This stainless steel conical fermentor features a weld-free interior, a dump valve for removing yeast and sediment, and a rotating racking arm for transferring. After your primary fermentation is complete you can simply remove the yeast from the conical section using the dump valve and go straight into secondary fermentation without transferring. The lid is a removable soda keg-style hatch that is pressure capable, allowing you to easily transfer using co2 to minimize air exposure. The Tri-Clamp model of Fermenator features tri-clamp fittings on the dump and racking valves. Known as "sanitary fittings" in the industry, they have a minimal amount of threads and are easy to disassemble and clean.
Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery, as Fermenators ship directly from the manufacturer via FedEx Ground.For detailed information on sizing and specs, click here. The options above allow you to add on leg extensions, casters, and the tri-clamp blow off assembly.

* Unlike glass carboys, the Fermenator is impervious to heat, won't shatter, and won't admit light.
* Unlike plastic buckets or plastic conical fermenters, they won't scratch, discolor, or harbor bacteria.
* Large-diameter top means an accessible interior for easy cleaning.
* Rotating racking arm makes for simple, sanitary, sediment-free racking—no siphoning.
* Replaceable threaded fittings
* Directional 90° bottom dump
* Stainless 3-piece ball valves
* Folding carry handles

- 4.0 / 5.01 ReviewI give it 4 startsI give it 4 starts only because it came in with a bent clamp and made me miss my brew day, but they company is shipping me a new one. I have one of these already and wouldn't trade it for the world. They are great for hot rack and just keeping brew after brew going.November 19, 2015Response from Northern BrewerThanks for the review.

- Browse 1 question Browse 1 question and 1 answerI'm considering one of the 14 gal. TC units and was wondering if there is a TC fitting welded to the bottom (dump) port or if it is a weldless fitting? Also, what size TC clamps are used, 1.5" or something different?BEST ANSWER: The Tri Clamp fittings are 1". 1" sanitary fittings use the same clamp diameter as 1.5"
they just have a smaller pipe ID. The fittings on the fermentor are weldless
using a clean bulkhead design with no exposed threads to contact your fermentation.
