Fermenters (Non Jacketed)

Fermenter Checklist

Here are some critical items to consider when purchasing a home brew fermenter: 

  1. Is it easy to clean? Can you reach inside it?
  2. Can you easily inspect it for cleanliness?
  3. Can you see the welds inside the fermenter?
  4. Do you need to remove a lot of parts to clean it?
  5. Are there threaded parts with nooks and crannies that need to be disassembled to ensure cleanliness?
  6. Are the welds generally smooth, without pits?
  7. Can valves be disassembled for cleaning? (this doesn't apply to butterfly valves due to their sanitary design)
  8. Are there non-stainless metal parts, such as legs, that will rust with time and use?
  9. Is it made of 304 or 316 stainless steel?
  10. Does it include all necessary valves and hose barbs, etc.? 

No other fermenter can compete with a Stout Tanks and Kettles fermenter when it comes to these important features and overall value.
