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.

Control your fermentation temperature accurately, every time!
Temperature control is one of the most crucial elements for producing a good quality beer. It needs to be regulated and stable throughout the whole fermentation process to ensure the yeast doesn't get stressed and ferments correctly to get the right flavour profile.
With the ability to individually power and control the temperature of up to four Grainfather Conical Fermenters, each with their own fermenting schedules, the Grainfather Glycol Chiller is the perfect addition to ensure superior fermenting results.
With a sleek and compact design, that still accommodates our full array of features, the Glycol Chiller maintains the Grainfather's principle of providing quality home brewing equipment, that deliver's craft brewery like results, on a small footprint.
With the addition of the Glycol Chiller, your system is operating at the ultimate level and you are even able to cold crash and lager down to 4°C (39°F). The Glycol Chiller connects to a hidden cooling sleeve, located in between the two stainless steel walls of the Conical Fermenter. Your desired temperature is dialed into the digital temperature controller on the Conical Fermenter, the liquid then travels through this sleeve, cooling the stainless steel which in turn cools the beer in the fermenter. The cooling sleeve never comes into contact with the beer, is completely concealed and does not need cleaning or sanitising - a true innovation for a fermenter on this scale.
Allows you to cold crash 23 L (6 US Gal) of wort to as low as 4-6ºC (39-43°F). Minimum temperature will vary based on external factors such as ambient room temperature, the number of fermenters connected and other environmental conditions.
Cools and powers up to 4 Conical Fermenters at different temperatures and fermenting schedules.
Note: The instructions for the Glycol Chiller will be attached to the outside of the shipping box. It is important that you retain these, do not throw them away and read them carefully before use to ensure no damage occurs to the unit.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: Make sure the chiller has been standing upright for 24 hours before turning it ON. Before using the Glycol Chiller, you must prime the pump by carefully following the instructions included with your purchase or online here.
One of these comes with the purchase of a Glycol Chiller but if a customer has another fermenter, they will need to purchase additional coats separately.
