In 2004, the Fermenator™ revolutionized the homebrew market as the first pressure capable homebrew conical. Blichmann is proud to announce the latest model: the Fermenator™ G4. Reimagined from the ground up, this true unitank leverages their 20+ years of experience in home and pro brewing, and their reputation of innovation. From the welded tri-clamp fittings, the 15 PSI capability, the always-sanitary aseptic racking arm, the external level gauge, and many other purpose-built accessories, you’ll find that the Fermenator™ G4 stands in a league of its own. Most competitors nickel-and-dime you with needed, but not included, accessories like a sampling valve or racking arm! But not the Fermenator™ G4. It includes more standard accessories than the competition at a value no one can beat.
Welded Tri-Clamp Fittings
All fittings are 1.5” tri-clamps and are sanitary welded into the heaviest gauge tank and lid on the market.
Pressure Capable Unitank
With 15 PSI (1 BAR) pressure capability, and the included integral pressure relief valve, you can ferment under pressure for reducing fruity esters in your beers, pressure transfer beer into kegs, or carbonate and use as a serving vessel.
Aseptic Racking Valve
The revolutionary patent pending aseptic racking valve takes the struggle out of keeping your sampling valve sanitary. Similar to pharmaceutical grade sampling valves, the new G4 aseptic valve can be filled with sanitizer between uses so all wetted surfaces always remain sanitized. No spraying. No worrying. No contamination.
Brushed Exterior, Polished Interior
Let’s admit it: our breweries are show-pieces for friends and families. And we work hard to keep them looking new. Like our Pro Brewing equipment, Blichmann has selected a sleek brushed exterior finish that is significantly easier to keep free of stains and fingerprints and gives that true pro-look to your brewery. Lastly, they've put a mirror polish on the interior to improve cleaning and yeast sedimentation.
Positive Seal Racking Arm
Loosening a racking arm clamp can lead to beer leaking from the joint, or worse yet, a clamp popping off and causing the loss of the full batch of beer. Blichmann has included an integral seal to eliminate beer leaks, and a long position indicating pin to allow the fitting to be easily rotated with minimal loosening of the clamp.
Pressure vessels should ALWAYS have a pressure relief valve (PRV) installed during use for safe operation. Unlike some competitors, Blichmann includes the PRV as an integral part of the lid so you never accidentally forget to install it, and don’t have to pay $60+ to buy one.
The included tri-clamp thermometer reads in F and C, and the scale is perfect for fermentation temps.
Fermenator Features Tri-clamp Fittings: By popular request we have developed an optional tri-clamp (sanitary) fitting design for our full line of Fermenator conicals. This new design maintains all the operational features of our standard fittings, but adds that sleek professional look to your brewery.
The Fermenator is a beautifully designed product for the discriminating brewer. Its features provide commercial brewery functionality at a consumer good price. Its easy to use and loaded with standard features.
Blichmann Engineering is committed to continuous product improvement, so design details may change from the photos shown.
Why Buy Conical Stainless Steel?
Stainless steel is extremely durable and the easiest material to sanitize. It is impervious to heat (well, up to 2000 F anyway), won't shatter like glass, and won't scratch, discolor and harbor bacteria like plastic.
The conical "uni-tank" offers many advantages over carboys:
Dumping cold break & trub takes a couple minutes
Collecting wort samples is quick and completely sanitary
Can easily harvest yeast
Pressurizeable for CO2 pumping
Impervious to UV light that causes "skunking" in beer.
Large open top makes scouring and sanitizing the interior a snap
The rotating racking arm allows siphoning completely sediment free beer
