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.

Please allow 1-3 weeks for delivery, as Fermenators ship directly from the manufacturer via FedEx Ground.

Other features include: * 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 * Beaded silicone lid seal * Channel-shaped legs: welded to tank wall exterior, with scratch-preventing pads on the feet * 304 stainless steel * 14 gauge flange; 16 gauge sidewall; 18 gauge cone

think long and hard before buying the standard fitting model Review by clay
If you plan to use this often, opt for the tri clamp model. (Posted on 3/25/15)
Freaking awesome! Review by Scott
I love this thing!. It goes from the stove to the fermentor to the keg. No more siphoning, no more buckets, no more carboys. It is so simple to use. I only wish I had a whole arsenal of these to use. Plus you can harvest the yeast for the next batch. (Posted on 4/29/14)
This Is a Great Conical Fermenter Review by Paul
I had been using a 7-gallon glass carboy for years, but for my 42nd birthday in 2013, I wanted to upgrade to a conical fermenter.

I chose the 7-1/2 gallon Blichmann Fermenator, and I am so glad I did. This fermenter is awesome. It's durable, easy to use, and it is soooooo easy to clean.

I like the the soda-keg trap door, as it makes dropping so easy to do. I just load up my resin bag, open up thee trap door, drop in the hop bag, and close the trap door.

I also like the fact that this is a Primary AND a Secondary fermenter. After the primary is done, I just open up the dump valve, drain the yeast and grub, and boom, secondary fermentation takes place.

And when fermentation is done and I've bottled the beer, it is soooo easy to clean. You can take the top off and wash with soap, water, and a sponge.

I can't give this enough stars. (Posted on 4/17/14)
Standard Fittings Review by Jim
I ordered this by mistake and NB was very helpful in getting me the tri clamp which is what I meant to order. Thank you!!! I'd like to see Blickmann take their design to the next level and add a Clean in place. This is really about the only item I don't like about the conical. If it's on wheels and extensions, good luck getting it cleaned properly. (Posted on 9/2/13)
Blichmann Conical Fermentor Review by Jim
I have two of the 15 gallon fermentors. I bought one without extensions and one with extensions and castors. Within a few weeks I purchased leg extensions and castors. It's worth it. The one thing I think was poorly designed in on the top of the fermentor where they have a small lid similar to a soda keg. There is a locking lid with a swing arm on it which has two plastic end caps. If you are not really careful those caps will break very easily when you lock it down. I think they should come up with something a little sturdier. Other than that these fermentors are fantastic. (Posted on 7/17/13)
fermenter recommendation Review by Phil
I have been brewing out of the standard Fermenator for about 6 years now. The tri-clamp version is relatively new so it wasn't available when I bought my Fermenator. The rig works well for sanitation and ease of use. I gradually opted for the leg extensions when I got into kegging and then the wheels to roll it around. The leg extensions and wheels make a dramatic difference in the ease of use. This rig allows quite a bit of freedom to brew as you need. In my years of usage of it, it still is in brand new condition as stainless steel is quite tough. Spend the money, it is worth not worrying about a glass carboy breaking, hefting the beer around, light intrusion, sampling contamination, yeast collection, removal of trub for secondary fermentation in the same container, accidental fermentation overflows and most importantly sanitation. My next Fermenator will be the tri-clamp version 42 gallon with leg extensions and casters, I am already drooling over one. (Posted on 12/2/12)
