7 Gallon - Blichmann Fermenator G4
In 2004, the introduction of the Fermenator changed the homebrew market as the first pressure-capable homebrew conical. We are proud to announce Blichmann's latest model: the Fermenator™ G4. This has been reimagined from the ground up. This true unitank leverages their 20+ years of experience in pro and home brewing, and their reputation of innovation. With welded tri-clamp fittings, a 15 PSI capability, the sanitary aseptic racking arm, an external level gauge, and many other accessories, you’ll find that the Fermenator G4 is in a league of its own. Other companies nickel-and-dime you with needed, but not included, accessories like a racking arm or sampling valve, but not the Fermenator G4. It includes more standard accessories than the competition at a value that can't be beat.Welded Tri-Clamp Fittings
All fittings are 1.5” tri-clamps and are sanitary welded into the heaviest gauge tank and lid on the market.Pressure Capable Unitank
With 15 PSI (1 BAR) pressure capability, and the included integral pressure relief valve, you can ferment under pressure for reducing fruity esters in your beers, pressure transfer beer into kegs, or carbonate and use as a serving vessel.Integral PRV
Pressure vessels should ALWAYS have a pressure relief valve (PRV) installed during use for safe operation. Unlike some competitors, Blichmann includes the PRV as an integral part of the lid so you never accidentally forget to install it, and don’t have to pay $60+ to buy one.Aseptic Racking Valve
The revolutionary patent pending aseptic racking valve takes the struggle out of keeping your sampling valve sanitary. Similar to pharmaceutical grade sampling valves, the new G4 aseptic valve can be filled with sanitizer between uses so all wetted surfaces always remain sanitized. No spraying. No worrying. No contamination.
Positive Seal Racking Arm
Loosening a racking arm clamp can lead to beer leaking from the joint, or worse yet, a clamp popping off and causing the loss of the full batch of beer. Blichmann has included an integral seal to eliminate beer leaks, and a long position indicating pin to allow the fitting to be easily rotated with minimal loosening of the clamp.Brushed Exterior, Polished Interior
Let’s face it: our breweries are show-pieces for friends and families. And we work hard to keep them looking new. Like our Pro Brewing equipment, Blichmann has selected a sleek brushed exterior finish that is significantly easier to keep free of stains and fingerprints and gives that true pro-look to your brewery. Lastly, they've put a mirror polish on the interior to improve cleaning and yeast sedimentation.Dial Thermometer
The included tri-clamp thermometer reads in F and C, and the scale is perfect for fermentation temps.
This Fermenator is 100% stainless steel. Everything that touches your beer is heavy gauge stainless steel. The interior is weld-free. There is no need to worry about bacteria hiding in weld cracks or in porosity found in all welds, even so-called sanitary welds.
- Dumping cold break and trub takes only a couple minutes.
- Collecting wort samples is quick and completely sanitary.
- Allows for easy harvesting of yeast.
- Impervious to UV light that causes "skunking" in beer.
- Large open top makes scouring and sanitizing the interior easy and painless.
Optional bolt-on leg extensions are available to elevate the Fermenator to make draining directly into a Cornelius keg easier. With the leg extensions, the bottom dump valve will be 23" (58cm) above the floor. See options above to add.
Another Fermenator option is the heavy duty industrial grade casters, making moving it much easier.
