Description
 

A fully featured stainless steel conical fermenter at a bargain price! Introducing Ss Brewing Technologies' Chronical Fermenter.

NOTE: Stock level shows how many we have on hand at our NJ location such as for instore pickups but you may still order with zero in stock as we can drop ship them directly from the manufacturer.

The Chronical has a full 60° cone, terminating in a Full Port 1.5” opening, making dumping trub through the included elbow and ball valve a breeze. A Rotating Racking Arm (patent pending design) is set halfway up the cone, allowing for the racking of trub free beer. A weldless thermowell allows for easy temperature monitoring and control with a digital temperature controller.

Full capacity to the rim of fermenter is 14 gallons, and Laser Etched Gallon Markers inside make determining wort volume a snap. Six spring-loaded Lid Clamps hold the gasket-sealed lid in place, and can be pressurized to 5 PSI for easy transfers & filtering.

Sturdy stainless legs keep your beer off the ground, allow for clean and easy access to racking and dump valves.

Please note that the LDC thermometer shown in the picture is NOT included. You will typically use this thermowell port for your refrigerator's temperature controller (such as our Inkbird 308) anyway. What refrigerator? Wait, stop right there. Please do not invest in a conical fermenter if you have not yet figured out the temperature control solution first. In fact, if we're being honest (that's what we do), if you do not currently ferment with both cooling and heat control, THAT is the first investment you should make with the money you may have been about to drop on a conical. We think a controller + fridge + heat wrap + any fermenter is better than just a conical sitting in ambient temps.

Upgrades
While the BME "BrewMaster's Edition" version of this conical includes several fancy upgrades that you may not want or can't afford, the one thing we think is absolutely advantageous is the upgraded butterfly style TC valves. The standard conical has ball valves with a TC on the fermenter side but threads on the other side. Ball valves and threads generally are not considered sanitary. You CAN satisfactorily sanitize these with heat (we recommend opening the valve half way and setting it in 200F water up to where the handle attaches and letting it soak for 10 minutes). However, if you would like a more sanitary solution, we highly recommend upgrading the dump valve to our butterfly TC valve. You can find this in the accessories on the right.
