The FermTank - 8 Gallon Fermenter

The FermTank is a versatile 8-gallon stainless steel fermenter with a welded drain valve for easy cleaning and rinsing. It also features a thermowell for precise temperature control, a domed lid for pressure transfers, and a blowoff hose barb.

8 Gallon Stainless Steel Fermenter With Welded Bottom Drain

The FermTank is the first in our line of stainless steel fermenters. With an 8-gallon capacity, it is ideal for those 5.5/6 gallon batches.

Made out of 304 stainless steel, the FermTank features a welded drain valve at the bottom. Intended to allow for easy cleaning and rinsing. It is also possible to dump yeast through the drain valve, depending on the beer you are brewing.

It includes a thermowell as standard along with a domed lid that can allow for pressure transfers and has a blow off hose barb. The domed lid also has an extra 9/16" hole drilled with plug and o-ring. This port can take a ball-lock gas post and is intended for an easy way to attach a pressure relief valve if needed. The legs are height adjustable when empty.
