The new FermZilla Gen2 in a whopping 55L, brought to you by the critical key minds and engineers behind the original Gen1, but with all the tweaks that make it the most cost effective conical fermenter to date!
The new FermZilla is a revolution in home brewing allowing home brewers and small micro-breweries a level of control that meets everyones budget. With the FermZilla you have the many of the benefits of a much more expensive stainless conical fermenter but with the additional benefit of being able to see the fermentation process in action and also ferment at pressures up to 2.4bar (35psi).
This is an incredible product at an extremely attractive price point and available in FermZilla 27L, and the 55L size.
Add the optional pressure kit to your FermZilla 55L and turn your FermZilla into a true uni tank. Uni tanks are conical fermenters used both for fermentation and for carbonating and serving finished beer. This extremely inexpensive upgrade will truly show you what the FermZilla was designed for.
These units were designed for use with CO2.
New and Improved:
1. Larger Dump Valve
2. Larger opening
3. Lower profile to fit into smaller fermentation spaces
4. Larger yeast collection container
Includes stainless steel handle.
Collection container lid is not pressure rated*. Handle in video not included.
When using this vessel under pressure. You must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this. Fill your FermZilla up with water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel. Check for leaks around all Cap / Threads.
Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large blow-moulded thin-walled vessels. But don't panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this. This was a necessary implementation into the design so that they can withstand some accidental suction from cold crashing and rough handling in transit without compromising their integrity and ability to endure high pressures. All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns or have damaged the plastic.
