Product details

Introducing the Reactor Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter, our next generation of fermenter for the avid homebrewer. Chock full of features, the Reactor will revolutionize your fermentation process from pitching to sampling, packaging, and cleaning. Solid 304 stainless steel construction makes the Reactor durable, light-proof, and incredibly easy to clean.

The conical bottom of the Reactor allows for yeast and excess trub to settle out of the finished beer or wine ensuring only the clearest product remains for packaging, while the adjustable racking arm allows for easy sampling during active fermentation and makes bottling or kegging a breeze. Boasting a large capacity of 8.5 gallons ensures enough headspace for even the most vigorous of fermentations, while the embossed volume markings provide simple volume measurement with a quick glance.

The wide opening and integrated bottom dump valve make cleaning the Reactor a quick and easy job - no need to invert the fermenter to empty the contents, simply open the bottom valve to drain cleaning solution and rinse water. The lid features a removable silicone gasket to ensure an airtight seal while the clamps firmly latch the lid to the body of the fermenter. Comes complete with a stopper for a turnkey fermentation experience.

Reactor Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter Includes:

  • Reactor conical fermenter main body
  • Lid with removable silicone gasket
  • Size 5 drilled rubber stopper
  • Racking arm assembly
  • Bottom dump/cleaning valve
  • Replacement gaskets for racking arm assembly
  • Rubber feet for legs

Good product for a good price

Well constructed, no leaks or any other issues since brew day. Light enough to carry but strong enough I don't have to worry about it denting or breaking like a glass carboy. A great budget option if you're looking to upgrade.

Great albeit one problem

This fermenter works great for the mead and cider I have used it for. The biggest problem I’ve found with it is the seal likes to fall out when putting the lid on. I used some food grade silicone grease to help keep it in but it doesn’t work forever. It was incredibly frustrating to keep having to take the lid back off after the seal slipped out. It even fell into the fermenter with 6 gallons of cider in it so I had to fish it out with my stirrer.

The only other concern I have is I wish they had designed the feet a little larger to disperse the weight out over more surface area. The feet made indents in the plastic table I had it on it’s first fermentation.

Other than these issues it’s worked well and checking gravity, racking and cleaning are incredible easy.
