Ferment like never before! The Grainfather Conical Fermenter gives the brewer professional fermentation control, just like in commercial breweries. Fermentation is clearly the most important step in producing quality beer. A good fermentation environment includes a clean and sterile environment, fermentation temperature control and minimised oxygen exposure.
The Grainfather Conical Fermenter provides the brewer with a modular system to do all this and more!
The Grainfather Conical Fermenter PRO edition includes the base unit + Double Valve Tap + Temperature Controller. This allows you to control the heating of your unit (and cooling with the separately available glycol cooler), remove yeast, take samples and transfer wort via the dual valve design.
Double wall: A stainless steel double wall is filled with a thick layer of polyurethane foam for insulation. This is what keeps the wort at a constant, sandy temperature with minimal influence from outside temperature changes, providing an insulation to the fermenter that a standard cover cannot have.
Integrated gentle heating: In the fermenter cavity, just between the bottom of the body and the bottom of the cone, a 30 watt, 12V heating element is integrated. In the same way as standard heating sources, this heats the liquid. This heat source is designed to heat the environment between the walls of the fermenter, which in turn heats the liquid. It is a system similar to temperature control in a hot room. The fermenter acts as if it were set up in a warm environment, which allows the temperature to be raised gradually and in a controlled manner, which is much better for the yeast.
Integrated cooling sleeve: Between the two stainless steel walls is a cooling sleeve (also made of stainless steel). This cooling sleeve is welded into the fermenter wall and can be connected to the optional Glycol Cooler. The temperature is controlled by the Temperature Controller and as long as the coolant flows through the sleeve, it cools the stainless steel which in turn cools the beer in the fermenter. The cooling sleeve never comes into contact with the beer, it is completely separate, sealed inside the fermenter and never needs cleaning or sterilisation - a real innovation for a fermenter of this size.
Easy access to the inside of the fermenter for hassle-free cleaning: The Grainfather Conical Fermenter has a smooth interior with no extras such as a cooling coil or extra sampling valves, which means it is super simple to clean and minimises the risk of infection.
Golden Angle Cone: The conical fermenter shape is typical of professional breweries. The fermenter has been designed with a "Golden Angle" of 60°. This is the optimal angle for yeast and sediment to fall to the bottom of the cone without getting stuck on the sides, allowing the brewer to transfer to the top of the deposit and obtain a clearer beer. The shape of the cone also allows for better mixing during fermentation due to the convection current paths that occur during fermentation.
