The Affordable Conical by minibrew is designed for five gallon recipes. It holds a full 6.5us Gallons (5.4 uk gallons). The tank and stand is 32" tall and 12" wide. Included with the fermnenter is a 3/4 inch nickel plated bottom ball valve, stand, lid, air lock, and 1/2" nickel plated racking port valve. Also included is a 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch nipple for fastening the valves to the fermenter. The Model f6.5 fermenter does not have thermometer mounting thread. The Affordable Conical ships ready to brew.

Easy to Clean and Sterilize All popular cleaning and/or sterilizing agents can be used on our plastic (HDPE) fermenters. They will not harm the inert plastic material. Water at 180 F degrees is an excellent sterilizing agent; pour it down the sides of the fermenter. The heat will sink into the plastic and all the parts, killing bacteria. This procedure works with stainless also. The large top makes it easy to get inside and scrub dried trub with a Teflon scouring pad. The melting point of plastic is 250 F degrees.

No Scratches Worries One need not worry about tiny scratches in plastic or stainless. There are two answers to the problem and both are easy. The first is to do nothing. Sterilize with hot water. The second is to remove the scratch by cutting down the sides with a dull knife. Draw the blade toward you, scraping away the plastic. Grinding and buffing scratches in stainless steel is more complicated.

No Secondary Transfers No need to transfer wort or wine to a secondary fermentation vessel. It is safer and less work to transfer the lees and dead yeast cells from the bottom while you leave the fermenting process above untouched.

Fermenter Design and Shape The precise shape of the 60 degree cone and top cylinder (one unit wide by one unit high+) are fermenter design perfections developed over the years by dedicated brewers looking to improve taste, consistency and ease of use. The shape positions the yeast and convection does the rest. The mixing motion of the currents assures complete yeast wort contact. The yeast near the cool sides will sink and, upon hitting the conical bottom, is forced into the center where it is warmer. Active yeast tends to give off heat. The hard working warmer cells rise to the top and spread to the sides to complete the cycle. Dead yeast cells will drop to the bottom and are removed quickly and easily (about 30% are alive) for disposal or reuse.

Valves included The 1/2" racking port threads are located on the side cone just above the settled yeast level. The port valve is for sampling, specific gravity reading and, of course, racking to bottles and kegs. The valve at the apex of the cone is for filling the fermenter and draining dead yeast. The thickest of yeast will flow through this large valve.

ALL THIS without lifting a carboy, siphoning risk or breaking glass. Now small batch brewing is easy and professional. Carboys, plastic buckets, converted kegs and stainless are history. They just do not provide the benefits, flexibility, ease of use and low cost.
