The Fermentator is Blichmann Engineering's state-of-the-art line of stainless steel conical fermentors. The Fermenator is a brewery quality piece of equipment, but made with the homebrewer in mind. This 14.5 gallon total capacity NPT-fitted Fermenator is built from 304 stainless steel, and features standardized 1/2" NPT threads, which are very versatile and will accept any 1/2" NPT fitting.
A main selling point of the Blichmann Fermenators versus other brand stainless steel conicals, is their weldless interior fittings. In fact, Blichmann Fermenators are the only interior weld-free fermentors on the market today! These weldless fittings are free of welding ripples which can harbor bacteria and wild yeast, lending to unsurpassed sanitation and ultimately, better beer!
Perfect for up to 11 gallon finished batch sizes of beer, or 12 gallons of wine, cider, or any other fermented beverage!
