4000L craft beer brewery equipment for conical fermentation tank brewing supplies near me

The conical fermentation tank is the most common type of fermenter we use in brewing beer.Beer fermentation tanks are also called CCT’s (Cylindrical Conical Tanks), FV’s (Fermentation Vessel), conical fermenter,primary fermentor or unitanks as they are used both for fermenting and lagering. Fermenting is the process during which the yeast transforms the wort into beer.Lagerings takes place after fermenting and is the time given to the beer to stabilize and age after fermenting.


The design of conical fermentation tank is based on our vast beer knowledge, especially the fermenter bottom and the fact that we combine fermentation and maturation in the same vessel is very important. When calculating your fermenting and lagering capacity and configuration sufficient time,for fermenting and lagering to produce quality beers must be taken into consideration.

Conical fermentation tank feature

1.A conical fermenter allows for the fermentating and the aging/storing of the brewing process to occur in the same vessel. The cone bottom collects the sediment which is then easily removed by slowly opening a bottom valve until the liquid runs clear, leaving the beer to age.

2.For this reason they are often referred to as “Uni-Tanks” as opposed to their flat-bottom counterparts that require transferring beer to a secondary conditioning tank to separate the sediment.

3.Modern commercial conical fermenters have the advantage of being made from stainless steel which can be reused indefinitely, is impregnable to odors and discoloration, and can be sanitized easily. Most jacketed fermenters sit atop legs and thus allow siphoning to occur through gravity. Additionally, yeast can be drawn off at any point during fermenting, to be washed and reused again.

4.These features yield considerable cost and time savings for commercial breweries, as well as faster turn-over rates for batches. Glycol-jacketed fermenters have the added benefit of an efficient cooling system built right into the tank.
