Product Description

FermZilla – 55L Starter Kit

The new and improved FermZilla 55L brought to you by the critical key minds and engineers behind the original Gen1 Fermentasaurus. But with all the tweaks that make it the most cost effective conical fermenter to date!

The FermZilla has primarily been designed as a pressure fermentation, carbonation and dispensing vessel. To convert this vessel into a pressurised uni tank you will need to purchase 1 x – Stainless Steel Pressure Kit or the 1 x Premium Plastic Pressure Kit  FermZilla – 55L

The new FermZilla is a revolution in homebrewing allowing homebrewers a level of control that meets everyone’s budget. With the FermZilla you have many of the benefits of a stainless conical fermenter.

Add the optional pressure kit to your FermZilla 55L and turn your FermZilla into a true unitank. 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.

Please note:

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 don’t 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.

FermZilla – 1000ml Collection Container

This collection container fits all the FermZilla conical fermenters.

The clear body is made of tritan from Eastman Plastics. This heat tolerant plastic is BPA, and plasticise free.

The Lid is made from impact resistant HDPE. Both lid and body can handle boiling wort.

This yeast collection container can fit the FermZilla fermenters and is primarily used for collection and addition of hops and yeast via the butterfly valve.

This collection container can also be used for yeast starters meaning that you can create the yeast starter in this collection container directly then attach to the valve of the FermZilla so you can pitch yeast without needing to open the lid. This collection container has been designed to work with the magnetic stirrer machine.

The ports on the side of this collection container are the same as a standard coke bottle or soft drink bottle. The threads are designed to suit the stainless carbonation caps KL00826 or plastic carbonation caps KL10788. These carbonation caps will enable you to purge oxygen for dry hopping, attach carbonation stone and carbonate liquid in the FermZilla, oxygenate wort and are useful for many other reasons.

The jacket has the added benefit of protecting your fermenting beer from harmful UV light.
