FermZilla 30L Flat Bottom Fermenter

FermZilla 30, litre Flat Bottom Fermenter with faucet, yeast lock and thermometer

FermZilla Flat Bottom PET fermentation tank with 30 liters capacity. This perfect  fermenter for fermentation for your brew be it beer, cider, wine, kombucha and much more.

PET is a better material than standard plastic fermentation buckets, as this lets much less oxygen through, and the surface is smoother which makes it easier to keep clean + bacteria have more difficulty settling in the plastic. can help to stop your brew, getting infected

This variant of FermZilla is not intended for fermentation under pressure.

Note: Do not fill the tank with liquid hotter than 50°C or the plastic will be deformed. When brewing extract sets, you should dissolve syrup and sugar in boiling water in a saucepan. Put cold water in the fermentation tank before transferring the boiling liquid.

Note: When cleaning with PBW or similar detergent containing Sodium Metasilicate, it is important not to have too long contact time. This applies to all types of PET fermentation vessels. It is therefore recommended never to have the PBW mixture in the tank longer than 20 minutes. Max power of PBW is expected after 10 minutes, and time beyond this will only damage the plastic

    What is a Beer - Brewing - Fermenter?

    Fermenters are a vessel used in the brewing process to brew your beer. During fermentation, yeast is added to the wort (unfermented beer) and begins to consume the sugars, producing alcohol and carbon dioxide as byproducts. The fermenter provides a controlled environment for the yeast to do its work.

    Types of Beer - Fermenters - Equipment

    There are several types of  fermenters available on the market, each with its pros and cons. Here are some of the most common types:

    Plastic Buckets

    Plastic buckets are an affordable and popular choice for homebrewers. They are lightweight, easy to clean, and some come with a lid and airlock. However, they can scratch easily, making them difficult to sterilise

    Glass Carboys

    Glass carboys are another popular choice for homebrewers. They are sturdy, easy to clean, and don't scratch easily. However, they are heavy and can break if dropped.

    Stainless Steel

    Stainless steel fermenters are durable, easy to clean, and don't scratch easily. They are also more expensive than plastic or glass fermenters.

    Conical Fermenter

    Conical fermenter are becoming more popular among homebrewers. They allow for easier yeast harvesting and the cone shape allows for easier separation of trub (the sediment that settles at the bottom of the fermenter). However, they are more expensive than other types of fermenters.

    How to Use a Brew Fermenter

    Using a beer fermenter is a relatively simple process, but there are some key steps to follow to ensure a successful fermentation. Here's a basic overview:

    1. Sterilise the fermenter: Before adding your brew, make sure the fermenter is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to prevent contamination.

    2. Add the wort: Once the fermenter is sterilised, add the wort to the fermenter.

    3. Pitch the yeast: Add the yeast to the fermenter according to the instructions on the package or you can, making starter for the yeast

    4. Seal the fermenter: Seal the fermenter with a lid and airlock to allow carbon dioxide to escape while preventing outside air from getting in.

    5. Ferment the beer: Store the fermenter in a cool, dark place and let the yeast do its work. Check the fermenter periodically to ensure the fermentation process is going smoothly.

    6. Bottle or keg the beer: Once the fermentation process is complete, bottle or keg the beer and enjoy!

    Tips for Using a Brew Fermenter

    Here are some additional tips to help you get the most out of your beer fermenter:

    • Keep the fermenter away from light: Light can negatively affect the flavour of  your brew, so it's important to store the fermenter in a dark place.

    • Monitor the temperature: Yeast is sensitive to temperature, so it's important to keep the fermenter in a cool place. Check the instructions on the yeast package for recommended temperatures.

    • Use a hydrometer: A hydrometer is a tool used to measure the gravity (density) of the beer. This can help you determine when the fermentation process is complete.

    • Consider secondary fermentation: Some brewers opt for a secondary fermentation process, which involves transferring the beer to a second ferment You don't have to limit the use of a fermenter for beer, you can make, cider, Cider Kits and wine just not at the same time, this way you can make full use of the equipment and off set the price, of the equipmentif you don't have the equipemnt to make any brew kits, then a starter kit would be a great place to start, to view the kits please click this link for starter kitCheck in the, description of the product what equipment may be needed for a, quick start to your brewing hobby.
