Description

Want an easy-to-use, stainless vessel that ferments and carbonates? This 58L/15.3 Gallon keg has been modified to allow you to do both! The top is fitted with a large 4 inch tri-clamp lid with two ball lock posts and a pressure relief valve. You can use this vessel to ferment, carbonate, serve, or push the beer through a filter. The posts are recessed which allows you to stack these kegs up to 4 high. A 4" T.C. end cap with pre drilled hole is also available (H691), which can be paired with a #3 stopper and airlock.

Depending on how long it will take to consume the finished beer, we recommend using two kegmenters, one for fermentation and one for carbonating and serving. After fermentation, there will be a large trub cake at the bottom of the vessel. Leaving finished beer on the trub for too long (2-3 weeks) may eventually lead to off-flavors. Check out our ball lock jumper line (KEG575) to easily transfer from one kegmenter to the other. Also consider our beer filter kit (FIL40), which will allow you to filter the beer during transfer.

Features:

  • Rated up to 2.5 BAR (36 psi)
  • 4" T.C. lid with ball lock posts
  • Floating dip tube
  • Stainless steel 1.8 mm thick

Use:

  • As a stainless steel fermenter that is easy to clean
  • Great choice for 10 gallon fermentations
  • Easy to pressurize the kegmenter after fermentation to push through a filter and into another keg
  • Fermenting under pressure, allowing CO2 to exit via the relief valve, reduces esters and fusel alcohol production allowing you to ferment at warmer temperatures
  • Distillation - with the addition of a T.C. reducer and condenser (H701 / DS120 / DS130)
  • As a cellar keg for topping up barrels

 

Warning: Always depressurize keg before removing lid.

Does not come with spunding valve show in example photo. See FIL42A.

Solid, solid, solid!!!
These things are champion! Build quality is superb and finish is perfect. They are ideal for pressure fermenting ten-gallon batches and very easy to clean. This is what you need when you step up from single batch brewing. Get two. You're going to do it eventually anyway so go ahead and save yourself the frustration. Absolute best value in fermenting.
