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.For detailed information on sizing and specs, click here.

- This Is a Great Conical Fermenter Review by Paul
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)
