Blichmann Engineering has done it again! Their line of Fermenator conical stainless steel fermentors are the pinnacle of form and function for today's homebrewer. This is the 27 gallon tri-clamp model, which comes complete with tri-clamp fittings. These fittings for the bottom dump and racking arm offer unparalleled cleaning and sanitation advantages over its NPT brother. The tri-clamps can be broken down and taken apart with ease, as the seals are made via o-rings, not threaded joints. No need to wrap and rewrap with pipe thread! Blichmann takes pride in using only 304 stainless steel, and the interior all-weldless construction can't be found anywhere else on the market today!
Perfect for: Up to 21 gallon finished batch sizes of beer, wine, cider, or any other fermented beverage!
Minimum interior refrigerator dimensions: 24" x 24" x 35.75" - Note that Blichmann recommends at least 1" clearance on each side, which is not included in these dimensions, and also recommends 4 to 6" of clearance space in an upright freezer or refrigerator for using the lid hatch.
The tri-clamp blow-off assembly from Blichmann Engineering is a must have for those pushing the limits of their Fermenators and using especially vigorously fermenting strains of yeast, such as some Belgian and wheat strains. This assembly is essentially a tri-clamp fitting that connects to the top of the Fermenator lid where an airlock would normally go. An elbow that connects with tri-clamps is included, as well as a 1" barb for use with 1" tubing (tubing not included) that can be led out into a bucket or other vessel to create a blowoff airlock. With 1" of clearance, fermentations are sure to be free of hop and krausen jams that can create pressure buildups in the Fermenator, as these materials pass harmlessly into the overflow vessel. Once high krausen has dropped, a normal airlock and stopper can be fitted into the assembly for the remainder of fermentation. In addition to being a blowoff assembly, a 1" tri-clamp to 1/2" hose barb is included for use in pressuring the fermenter in order to pump beer out and rack into kegs or other containers. The easy way to both control fermentation and seamlessly pressurize the Fermenator for racking!
