FermZilla - NOW WITH STAINLESS HANDLE - 55L
The new and improved Fermentasaurus Gen2 in a whopping 55L brought to you by the critical key minds and engineers behind the original Gen1. But with all the tweaks that make it the most cost effective conical fermenter to date!
We have discontinued selling the Fermentasaurus as the new FermZilla is here. The new FermZilla is a revolution in home brewing allowing home brewers and small micro-breweries a level of control that meets everyones budget. With the FermZilla you have the many of the benefits of a much more expensive stainless conical fermenter but with the additional benefit of being able to see the fermentation process in action and also ferment at pressures up to 2.4bar.
This is an incredible product at an extremly attractive price point and available in FermZilla 27L and FermZilla 55L sizes.
Add the optional pressure kit to your FermZilla 55L and turn your FermZilla into a true uni tank.
Uni tanks are conical fermenters used both for fermentation and for carbonating and serving finished beer.
This extremely inexpensive upgrade will truly show you what the FermZilla was designed for

When using this vessel under pressure. You must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this. Fill your FermZilla up with water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel. Check for leaks around all Cap / Threads.
Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large blow-moulded thin-walled vessels. But dont panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this. This was a necessary implementation into the design so that they can withstand some accidental suction from cold crashing and rough handling in transit without compromising their integrity and ability to endure high pressures. All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns or have damaged the plastic.

We have also made this video here to show you how to get the Dump Valve Together. Some people get a bit confused with the reverse left hand thread so we thought we should make a video explaining this.
Are you interested in fitting a glycol heating or cooling coil for temp control then you might want to check out this product. This coil can fit into the lid of these fermenters and it's a complete kit that includes the duotight bulkhead fittings. To see the Temp Twister Stainless Coil Click Here.
If you want to fit a thermowell to the lid of this fermenter then you should really check out this 60cm Stainless Thermowel that includes the bulkhead fitting so you can mount this into the lid of this Fermenter.

For some really handy tips and tricks you can see a video from Gash. He is a total legend:
We sometimes get asked what is the easiest way to clean the dump valve seal on the FermZilla conical unitank and this is definitely the easiest way. Soak in PBW cleaning solution (for 5 minutes max) then use a high pressure hose to squirt around the seal and this releases any built up hops etc. See video below.
