Grainfather Conical Fermenter Advanced Cooling Edition

  • Reviews


Fulfil the awesome potential of the new Grainfather Conical Fermenter by pairing it with the dedicated Grainfather Glycol Chiller, achieving craft brewery precision at home with a small footprint. As any good brewer knows, temperature control is essential to proper fermentation. To this end the conical has an integrated heating element in the body cavity, whilst the chiller unit can pump cold propylene glycol through a cooling sleeve built into the fermenter's walls, cooling wort as low as 4°C - and both are controlled through the magnetised digital controller on the fermenter's face. You can programme up to five temperature steps for each fermenter, and the glycol unit can service up to four separate conical fermenters, each with their own different fermentation schedules!

This bundle includes both the Grainfather Conical Fermenter Pro Edition and Glycol Chiller unit, at a great value discounted price.

Bundle contents:

  • Grainfather Conical Fermenter Pro Edition
  • Grainfather Glycol Chiller (glycol not included)

Conical Fermenter Features:

  • Double-walled stainless steel body with an insulating polyurethane layer, keeping wort at a stable temperature with minimal influence from the outside
  • Integrated 12V heating element built into the body cavity, which heats the walls of the fermenter rather than the wort directly for gentle temperature control
  • Integrated stainless steel cooling sleeve built into the walls of the unit, which can be hooked up to a cold water source and pump, or a dedicated glycol cooling unit
  • Smooth interior walls with no projecting coils or excess valves, plus easy access for thorough cleaning and sanitation
  • Golden angle of 60º for the sloping conical bottom, the optimum angle for yeast and sediment to drop to the bottom without sticking to sides
  • Dual valve tap allowing you to sample and transfer from above the sediment line, and harvest yeast from below
  • Temperature control unit where you can dial in a fermentation temperature and schedule up to 5 stages, controlling the built-in heating element and cooling unit (if separate cooling unit has been attached)
