Conicals, Unitanks, Brite Tanks and Accessories

If you have been brewing for quite a long time you may want to upgrade your brewing equipment, if so you may be considering a conical. In brewing a conical is usually referring to a fermenter, however unitanks and brite tanks may also fall under this category. Also called as cylindroconical fermenter, this equipment is a smaller version of what commercial brewers use. As a scaled-down version of a uni-tank, conicals allow primary fermentation as well as conditioning at the same time.

Unlike flat-bottomed fermenters, conical fermenters come with a port at the bottom of the cone that dumps the yeast as well as other sediments at the bottom of the container. It comes with a port found above the cone that allows home brewers to draw samples of the beer so that it can easily be transferred to another container.

The main advantage of a conical fermenter is that it aids in separating the yeast from the beer with ease. This makes cleanup very easy. Most conical fermenters are made from stainless steel. Stainless steel is an inert material that does not influence the flavour and colour of the final product. (more info below)
