Description

Upgrade your home brewery with an innovative, Stainless Steel, 7 Gallon Brew Bucket™ Fermenter!  You will enjoy many of the benefits of a stainless conical fermenter but at a fraction of the cost and you are going to love how easy it is to use!  Made by Ss Brewing Technologies from polished 304 Stainless Steel, the Brew Bucket™ fermentor is not only functional it is downright beautiful. At MoreBeer!  we know brewing equipment and we truly believe this is a piece of equipment you are going to enjoy using every brew day.

We inspected and used the Brew Bucket™ and one of the most unique features that stood out is that the Brew Bucket can be stacked during fermentation, even with an airlock attached. We also like the conical bottom that allows trub to settle out in a concentrated space that minimizes the surface area of the trub that is in contact with your beer.  The included Patent Pending Rotating Racking Valve is also a brilliantly simple design allowing you to rotate the racking arm inside the Brew Bucket down during fermentation to minimize trub, and later up to get clear beer when racking!   Etched Volume Markers on the inside were super handy when filling and display in both Liters and Gallons.

The build quality is really amazing for the price. Welds are clean. The lid is strong and the spring loaded lid hatches are solid.  The lid includes a removable, molded silicone gasket that ensures an airtight seal.  We love an airtight seal so that we can be sure to see the airlock working.  The welded on stainless handles make the BrewBucket fermentor super easy to move. 

Overall: Very functional, easy-to-use, will last a lifetime, and looks amazing. Lets make some beer!

Features:

  • Certified Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel Construction
  • Patent Pending Stainless Rotating Racking Valve
  • 6.95 gal Max Capacity
  • 40° Conical Bottom for Trub Trapping
  • Nests for Storage, Stacks for Ferment!

One of the best buys as a homebrewer
Most home-brew fermenters have some sort of major flaw. Plastic buckets soak up odors and need careful cleaning. Plastic carboys are worse to clean. Glass carboys are only suitable for those who like extensive surgery when they inevitably shatter. Small conicals are nice but super pricey.

Enter the brew bucket. Stainless steel so you can pour boiling water on it, blast it with chemicals or scour it with a scrub pad. The conical base catches all of your trub, and a nice, convenient stainless steel valve with a racking arm lets you transfer by gravity straight into a keg through the dip tube with the appropriate liquid disconnect.

Really what's not to like? If you intend on home brewing with any level of seriousness (I've been brewing for five years) then this will easily pay for itself once you factor in periodic replacement of plastic fermenters and auto siphons.

In short: I'll be buying more

Nice!
Been homebrewing since 1995. I've used plastic 5 gallon buckets, glass carboys and wide mouth fermenters. IMO, nothing, at least so far, beats the SS Brew Bucket for ease of use and cleaning. I did have a problem with fermenting an ale at basement, 60F temps. Fermentation clogged up the airlock. Therefore, when fermenting an ale, use a blow off tube. On the other hand, a lager fermented at 52F had no problem.
Amazing how the trub clings to the outer walls leaving the center clear.
Yes, these are expensive, but they are, if handled properly, a lifetime of use.
Be sure to read the cleaning instructions before first use.
No reason to purchase an drilled stopper as one is included unless another drilled stopper is desired.

Quality Product with Great Features
So I've been brewing about 4 years now, always with glass carboys. Over the past year I've been fermenting in a chamber, but decided to start using that as a keezer. Given my situation, I wanted something that was still compact with temp control capability without a steep price. The brewbucket fit the bill when paired up with the FTSs. I was on the fence about wanting a full conical fermenter, but just do not have that kind of money. So a few concerns I had before buying that you may have too:

- With no dump valve, I still have to transfer to secondary -
So I had this same question, as I had put most of my beers to secondary when I used glass carboys. After spending time with some really good brewers I found out they had been using plastic buckets and almost never secondary their beer. With the conical bottom, the surface area of yeast/trub contacting the wort is minimized. I've made 6 different batches with this, from Stouts to Hefs to Hazy IPAs, none of those really matter for clarity so I went ahead with a SMaSH IPA. As long as you pay attention to the drain valve, you will draw clear clean wort and leave the rest behind. If you have a sour or something that is going to age extremely long, then you may want 2 of these or another vessel to transfer to.

- What about dry hopping? -
I've dry hopped a number of IPAs and never had an issue. If you're concerned though, get some hop bags, or I got a stainless hop tube for those bigger brews.

This thing paired with the FTSs works wonders, I keep a bunch of frozen 2 liter bottles of water and just cycle them each day. I've cold crashed down to about 50 degrees.

So to sum it all up, this thing works great if you're not sure about a conical or dont have the money right now. Being able to drain from the bottom valve is a great feature, I just wish this thing came with a blow off tube, cuz you're gonna need one. Now that I have 1, I'll probably just buy another in the future so I can run multiple batches or use it for long term aging.

Great So far
Just finished my first fermentation in this, very happy so far. Really like how minimal and compact it is. Was able to fit about 6 gallons in, had no problems with krausen in the airlock, but that may depend on the strain. I cleaned with TSP and then PBW before use, but I think they must have eliminated the issues they used to have, it did not have any noticeable odor or oils from manufacturing when I received it. Bottom port made racking easy, gasket sealed nicely.

Excellent Product and Value for Home Brewing
I've purchased my first SS Brewtech Brew bucket about 1 1/2 years ago. I've brewed all styles of beer in it since, and it is an excellent product. The bucket is easy to use and to clean. It is a well thought out product for a home brewer, so much better than plastic buckets or glass carboys. The only issue I personally have is the lack of a second hole in the lid to insert a thermo well, otherwise it is perfect for my brew set up. I've purchased a second one to be able to brew with more frequency, especially when brewing lagers. A great upgrade or addition at a very reasonable price.

Nice, but the pivoting racking arm is almost useless.
The 7gal Brewbucket is very well made (9/7/2016), no sharp edges, beautifully finished. The top and gasket and latches are very well made. In all respects - except the racking arm feature - it seems to be every bit as good as it is advertised to be. Because the racking arm is installed on the 40deg sloped bottom, when it is turned downward it actually points just a tiny bit below horizontal and this leaves a large volume of material in the cone lower than the mounting hole unaccessibe. This will be useless to remove trub or yeast. The adjustable feature is completely useless since the short internal arm points from near-horizontal to straight up (even less useful). They put the valve on the sloped surface so that the buckets can be nested, a bad trade-off in my opinion. If the rotating racking arm with 45deg bend were placed on the sidewall (and were longer) it could point downward, to the bottom of the cone and could be much better, but I think the geometry would not let a tube reaching the bottom pivot. It just isn't well thought out the way it is done. It would be nice if they supplied it with a bottom drain option.

A standard SS racking cane (21") will reach through the airlock hole to the very bottom to allow removal of trub or yeast; use a clothespin or other clamp to hold the cane above the bottom to draw clear fluid.
