V-Vessel conical fermenter


Recommended Posts


The V-Vessel was developed for BrewShops in Canada.

The cost is reasonable and it allows for primary, secondary and bottling without any transfers. It is plastic and costs from $150 to $170. There is one on eBay for $100.

Does anyone have experience? Are there any opinions?

I have certainly seen large stainless steel conical fermenters in brewpubs and the like. It seems very efficient, but I wonder how easy they are to clean.

You should try pos

ting this question at hbd.org, or any of the other popular brewing discussion groups. I'm sure you'd get lots of response. As for me, I would switch from a simple bucket. If you use plastic you want to replace every now again, and >100 does not promote replacing it. I dispense from my secondary, so there's really no advantage here for me. Lastly, it appears to me that if you're filling the fermenter in a different location than you're fermenting it (like I am) that it could be a gigantic pita.

      It seems that the legendary traditional appearance and accoutrements of witches may have actually risen because they were conjuring up beer rather than malign entities from beyond.

      Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.

      Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.
      My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).
      It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
