Description

Ss Brewtech’s flagship fermenter: The Chronical.  Designed with the same focus on features, flawless construction, and frugal price tag as the BrewBucket, but stepped up in every way!

The Chronical has a full 60° cone, terminating in a Full Port 1.5” opening, making dumping trub through the included elbow and ball valve a breeze!   Sanitary TIG welded fittings insure years of rustless contamination free brewing!  A Rotating Racking Arm (patent pending) is set halfway up the cone, allowing for the racking of trub free beer, regardless of how high your trub reaches.  

A weldless thermowell allows for easy temperature monitoring and control.  Use a Ranco or Johnson Digital Temperature Controller with the Chronical fermentor to dial your fermenter’s temperature in to the degree.  

Lid is easy to remove, and sealed in place with a molded silicone gasket.  Full capacity to the rim of fermenter is 7 gallons, and with domed lid and a blowoff setup (see You Might Also Need section below), ferments can go cleanly!  Laser Etched Gallon Markers inside denote what volume of brew you are working with.  Six spring-loaded Lid Clamps hold the lid in place, confirming that your Chronical is airtight, and can be pressurized to 5 PSI for easy transfers (see You Might Also Need Section below for our CO2 Adapter with Pressure Gauge).

Sturdy Stainless Legs keep your beer off the ground, and allow for clean and easy access to racking and dump valves.  We mentioned these legs are sturdy, and we meant it.

An expansive features list like this normally carries an equally hefty price tag, but the Chronical fermentor is designed with economics in mind.  At under $400, this piece of fermenting beauty is a steal for the quality and features included.  Look forward to new products and great deals to come from SS BrewTech and MoreBeer!

A Fantastic Fermenter for Future Fun.
There is really not much to say, except that this is money well spent and it does it all, for a very competitive price.
Well done SSBrewtech.

Almost five stars
Just arrived today. Had beer mashing as I was cleaning and putting together. Went back through the box looking for a missing part and it wasn't there. Went back to the instructions and found out the missing part was not included. I would suggest that SS increase the price of this unit by 50 cents and include the barbed hose fitting. I guess they expect you to rack into a bottling bucket and bottle from there. Kind of defeats the purpose of a conical. Racking arm very loose?

With the good comes some...not-as-good
I love my first Chronical so much that I decided to purchase a second one. Overall, these are great- all the conical benefits without the typical conical price. Being the proud owner of two now, I did notice a couple of slight design differences between my older one and this new one that are worth noting.
Awesome: The section of tubing between the tri-clover fitting and the back/fermenter side of each ball valve is now integrated into the valve itself rather than being threaded into the back, effectively removing two hiding places for bugs.
Meh: Unfortunately those sanitary gains are slightly offset by the fact that the thermowell is now weldless. The product description lists this correctly but the photos still show the welded version. It just means a little extra attention there when cleaning and sanitizing. This is obviously far short of a deal breaker.
In any other context these little design tweaks might seem trivial but if you're anything like me, your obsession with sanitation long ago quit being healthy.
Overall it still deserves five stars and I highly recommend it.

Good overall, small flaws
Overall this is a quality product for the price. No signs of rust after a year of use. Comes apart and cleans easily with minimal crevices to worry about.
The rubber under one of the legs arrived damaged but more beer sent a replacement immediately.
My only complaint with the vessel itself so far is that the racking arm O-rings are way too thin and soft and crimp over on each other, roll, etc. They are bad enough I could no longer insert the arm and had to buy new o rings from the local hardware store.
It's nice that the brew bucket lid works on this also if you need it to be lower profile for a lagering fridge/freezer.

Really nice piece
I have put two batches through the Chronical. It's a very nice conical, easy to use and easy to clean. Hooked my Co2 to push beer into my keg, only handled the beer to lift it into the Keezer... This makes brewing so much easier. Quality is good. I wish the racking tub inside as a bit longer as I left more beer in the cone then I wanted.

I'm going to buy one more and park all my carboys for ever.

Ss Brewtech 7 gal Chronical Conical
I have enjoyed weekly batches of been in my stainless conical. Just remember to clean any new equipment with PBW and then sanitize. This will remove any of the manufacturing and shipping oils. Brew like a pro: I would also recommend the FTSS temperature control for this bad boy. There are coil extenders you can purchase that will allow for smaller batches. I am now able to dial in my recopies with accuracy. I have one beer, "The Angry Abbott" that loves to pop the top off my plastic bucket. The locking lid prevents this from happening; additionally, the temp controller prevents the exothermic reaction that causes the lid to pop.

I am almost ready for my next purchase, the larger 1/2 barrel conical. You can stack these for space saving too.

Love It
The design and quality of manufacture are awesome. Lot of attention paid to detail and the price is great!

Great product
I have used this fermenter twice now and really like it. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating was because I wan't able to pressurize it up to 5 psi like it said I could. Air leaks out the lid. I was still able to do a closed transfer but had to lift the fermenter up onto a table and then hold the lid down with my hands. I'm going to look for some clamps to hold the lid down tighter for future tranfers.

Great product at a great price
I was hesitant to make the jump into a conical, but I can say without question, this has made fermentation quicker, cleaner, and easier to replicate. I have seen my airlock activity drop much quicker with this product and clean up is really simple. The thermo-well makes temp control much easier to keep in line without worry about tape or insulation. I highly recommend this to anyone on the fence about a conical.
