The Symbiosis Fermenter (317 Gallon Kombucha Brewing Vessel) - IMPROVE QUALITY, FERMENT FASTER

SKU KF317TRAY-BO

REDUCE ALCOHOL PRODUCTION & FERMENT FASTER*

This is the 317 gallon version of our Symbiosis Fermenter line of kombucha brewing vessels.  This innovated kombucha fermenter features 7 stackable trays, tri-clamp drains and stainless steel butterfly valves. Individual trays provide contact to oxygen, allowing the aerobic bacteria to metabolize ethanol to acetic acid, sugars to lactic acid, and glucose to gluconic acid.  Easier to maintain optimum fermentation temperature.

 

Like our  159 gallon Symbiosis Fermenter, this 317 gallon upgraded kombucha fermenter features a kombucha-specific shape that provides a balanced environment for both the Saccharomyces yeast and the Acetobacter bacteria strains. 


TESTIMONIAL FROM TROY @ HANESTAD KOMBUCHA: “..many people have tried the local kombucha and are shocked at how much better this is.  The profile generated by the symbiosis fermenter is just so much better.”
