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.
Other features include:
Unlike glass carboys, the Fermenator is impervious to heat, won't shatter, and won't admit light.
Unlike plastic buckets or plastic conical fermenters, they won't scratch, discolor, or harbor bacteria.
Large-diameter top means an accessible interior for easy cleaning.
Rotating racking arm makes for simple, sanitary, sediment-free racking—no siphoning.
