BrewBuilt® X1 Uni Pro Conical Fermenter

BrewBuilt® X1 Uni Pro Conical Fermenter

Please select from the following option(s) to see pricing and availability.

The most advanced homebrewing fermenter, period. The BrewBuilt X1 Uni Pro features Peltier technology to maintain fermentation temperatures with the highest level of precision. This completely self-contained conical fermenter doesn't require the additional space or expense of a dedicated refrigerator or glycol chiller and is exceedingly simple to configure and operate.

If you plan to purchase a new fridge of glycol chiller to pair with an X1 Uni or Uni+, we highly recommend that you consider the Uni Pro! This unit may have a higher price tag, but you could save in the long run by not needing to buy any expensive appliances to handle temperature control!

Peltier Technology
First discovered by Jean Charles Athanase Peltier in 1834, the "Peltier Effect" occurs when an electric current runs through a circuit of dissimilar conducting metals. This thermoelectric reaction that happens when the current passes from one metal to the other can produce either cold or heat depending on the direction the current is flowing. It wasn't until NASA began using this technology that it started to gain widespread use. Today, Peltier chips are commonly used in a variety of applications such as cooling computers and small refrigerators. BrewBuilt saw how this could be used for brewing applications, and they've been raising their glass to Jean Peltier ever since.

Precision Temperature Control
The X1 Uni Pro maintains fermentation temperatures using localized heating and cooling distribution. Peltier technology provides the cooling near the top of the conical where temperatures are hottest, and a very low watt density heating pad placed inside the neoprene jacket gently warms the unit from the bottom up. Cooling and heating are automatically turned on as needed via a stainless steel control box that can be mounted to your wall or hung from one of our custom-welded stands. Simply program your desired set point on the controller and sleep easy knowing the X1 Pro will keep your fermentation temp on target to within 1 degree of the set point. The X1 Pro's ability to provide both cooling and heating means your fermentation will maintain the perfect temperature from beginning to end, providing cooling during the vigorous active fermentation phase, and providing heat to maintain the set temp when yeast activity ramps down. Note: We employ a very low watt density heater to protect your beer from the off flavors that can be created by heating the settled yeast at the end of fermentation. We will be releasing a stronger heater in Fall 2021 for rapidly changing temperatures.

The custom-sewn jacket features dual-layer insulation, with an inner layer of closed-cell, fiber-free elastomeric thermal insulation and an additional layer of durable neoprene. This allows for exceptional cooling and heating efficiency, enabling the X1 Pro to maintain fermentation temperatures at up to 30°F below ambient temperature. The X1 Pro models will easily maintain ale temperatures in 80°F environment and lager temperatures in a 70°F environment. Note that this is for fermentation temperatures and that the differential you can achieve goes down as the ambient temperature goes down.

Flex Chamber - Trub Separator & Yeast Harvester
The pressurizable Flex Chamber attaches directly to the butterfly dump valve and can be used for removing trub, harvesting yeast, and many other tasks. Since it's made from crystal clear Triton, you'll be able to visually monitor fermentation activity just as you would with a sight glass. Ball lock adapters can be attached to the threaded ports on either side, allowing you to connect oxygenation or carbonation stones, or flush the Flex Chamber with CO2 and use it to inject hops or other ingredients into your conical. Also a great option for storing yeast! Simply attach a 2" T.C. end cap or PRV and store your harvested yeast in the fridge for your next fermentation.

Pressure Pack with Clear Float Technology
Adding pressure capability will allow you to ferment, carbonate, and even serve all in one vessel. The Pressure Pack features our unique Clear Float Technology racking tube that can be used for taking samples, transferring to keg, or serving finished beer. This innovative feature draws beer from the top down, which means you’re always pulling the clearest, most sediment-free beer possible. Using pressure to draw a sample from the floating dip tube will also eliminate the tiny bit of oxygen that would be injected into your beer every time the traditional sample valve is opened.

Pressure transferring from fermenter to keg is the best way to protect your beer from oxygen when it’s at its most vulnerable state. Kegging could be considered the final hurdle in the brewing process, where limiting oxygen exposure is critical. This could mean the difference between your beer tasting great for months or tasting great for a week. Don’t take any chances. Use the Pressure Pack to keg from the top down and leave sediment behind.

X1 Uni Conical Fermenters
The BrewBuilt X1 Uni was born of thousands of hours of research, contemplation, and development. The engineers and critical minds behind its realization scoured years of feedback from home and professional brewers alike to determine the ideal feature set of a stainless steel conical fermenter. And where standard features fell short, we pushed the boundaries into new territory never before seen on a premium conical fermenter. The end result is a unit purpose-built to advance your fermentation process, improve the quality of your finished beer, and look good doing it. This is the brewing sidekick that you’ll brag to your friends about.

We guarantee that you will love the fit and finish of our X1 Uni Conical. Made entirely of 304 stainless steel, the quality exceeds what has previously been done in brewing applications and approaches the level of pharmaceutical-grade finish. With flawless welds and a dazzling mirror-polish finish inside and out, the X1 Uni is easy to sanitize and even easier on the eyes. You’ll probably wanna snap a pic. #BrewBuilt

Extra Large 2” T.C. Dump Valve
Dry hop to your heart's desire. Try as they might, hopheads will have a hard time clogging this conical. With an oversized 2" bottom port, you’ll have all the clearance you need (and even more than some pro brewers) to drop out your dry hop additions with ease. The slick mirror-polish finish on the inside allows flocculating yeast to collect neatly at the bottom of the cone as they slide right down the smooth interior walls. The butterfly dump valve integrates perfectly with included Flex Chamber Trub Separator and Yeast Harvester.

Reinforced Four-Leg Foundation
There’s a common complaint seen in the feedback for other conicals on the market—the tippiness of three-legged units. Three legs may be fine when the fermenter is sitting still on an even surface, but users are often forced to purchase a bracing shelf for more stability if they add casters or leg extensions. A conical is only as worthy as it’s foundation, so BrewBuilt modeled the X1 after professional-level brewery tanks with a four-leg, reinforced base. This seemingly small design feature is more expensive to produce, but it's what makes the X1 conical exceedingly stable when compared to other models.  When you fill up your fermenter with delicious fresh wort, you want to trust the vessel that’s holding your latest creation. Brewers shouted from the mountaintop that they wanted stronger, sturdier legs right out of the box that don’t require an additional bracing shelf. The four-leg, welded-bar reinforced system is absolutely rock solid. This is an especially critical feature if you plan to add rolling casters so can easily glide the fermenter around your brewery. 

The reinforced four-leg design not only increased the stability and strength of the conical, it also allowed us to extend it upwards, thereby eliminating the need for extensions in almost every situation. An elbow, a sight glass, or the Flex Chamber can be mounted under the unit with room to spare.

Adjustable Feet
The X1 Uni comes standard with thread-in adjustable feet. If your home brewery has uneven flooring, you can quickly and easily level out the fermenter. The feet can be swapped out with our high-quality casters at any time.

Optional Equipment

  • BrewBuilt Kit for Fermetning Under Pressure (Optional Kit is Required to Ferment Under Pressure)
    The Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) that comes with the conical is not sufficient for fermentation as it can become clogged with Krausen. To ferment under pressure the Pressure Fermentation Kit is required. This no-compromises kit includes the same hardware you will find on a commercial unitank, including a dedicated pro level spunding valve, a sealed pressure gauge, and a dedicated commercial PRV. Read more about these key hardware features in the kit copy. Also included is liquid Foam-Axe which helps reduce Krausen. Fermenting under pressure will reduce esters and fusel alcohol production, and enable you to ferment lagers at ale fermentation temperatures. Please read and follow all special instructions that come with the kit as well as your instruction manual. 
  • Hop Bong Oxygen-Free Dry Hopping Device
    The Hop Bong is a versatile pressurizable tri-clamp accessory that is perfect for purging oxygen from your dry hops before dropping them into your fermenter. Load up the Hop Bong, flush it with CO2, purge out oxygen with the handy PRV on top, then simply open the Butterfly Valve to inject your beer with a 6 oz payload of dry hops.

Other Features You’ll Love:

  • Downward-facing Blowoff U Barb prevents blow off tubing from kinking and is much easier to remove and clean than a fixed stainless blow off
  • Internally etched volume markers in gallons and liters
  • Stainless steel lid clamp with single-piece molded silicone gasket
  • Optional Heavy-Duty Rolling Casters
  • Optional Pressure Fermentation Kit
X1 Uni Pro Conical Features:
  • 304 stainless steel construction
  • Mirror polish finish
  • Welded tri-clamp ports
  • Single-piece lid clamp
  • Built-in 15 psi PRV (Not sufficient for fermentation - Optional Pressure Fermenation Kit required for pressure ferments)
  • Internally etched volume markers
  • 110V / 15A Circuit Required

Installation Note: The Pressure Pack's Clear Float floating dip tube is sized to fit all models of the BrewBuilt Conical. Depending on the size of your fermenter, you may need to shorten the silicone tube for better performance. When installed on your empty fermenter, you ideally want the dip tube to hang freely with just enough length for the end of the dip tube to touch the bottom of the tank.

Please note: due to the size and weight of the 27-gallon model, this unit is only available for freight shipping.

I currently have a temperature controlled chest freezer as a fermentation chamber. It tends to condensate moisture on the inside, so I'm constanly bleach cleaning it to avoid mold. This upgrade will allow me to 1) set the temp and forget it, which much more accurate fermentation temperature variable 2) produce carbed beer before kegging 3) eliminate siphoning to keg (pressure transfer), and therefore O2 risk 4) harvest my yeast. Plus a lot more. Happy Birthday to me!

Could the 7 gallon heat to 90 degrees for Kveik fermentations? Where is the temp sensor port?
Karl Handelsman on Nov 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The heater on these is designed to warm 25-30 degrees above the ambient temperature. If you knockout at 90 degrees and pitch immediately it should have no problem keeping the heat up.
Can the temp control unit cold crash or only maintain the fermentation temp?
christopher lake on Dec 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The unit can cold crash to a point. The chips are designed to cool up to 30 degrees below ambient temperature. Achieving a full 31 degree cold crash is unlikely, but it can definitely cool enough to carbonate the beer and settle out your yeast and sediment.
How high/low above/below ambient can this unit heat and cool?
Michael Seaman on Jan 4, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This fermenter can heat and cool approximately 30 degrees to either side of the ambient temperature.
What is the recommended CIP ball for this unit?
christopher lake on Dec 31, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 1" or 4" flange CIP
Is the heat wrap incorporated into the insulation jacket rather than taped to the cone?
Steve Carper on Nov 25, 2020

Can you ferment a 5 gal batch in the 14 gal fermenter? I brew 5 gal batches now but looking to upgrade in the future to 10 gal batches.
Mike on Nov 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: It is possible to ferment a five gallon batch inside this fermenter. The only downside is that the thermowell sits right above the 5 gallon mark, a little closer to 6 gallons. This means that a thermometer or temperature controller won't be able to accurately take the temperature of your fermenting wort. We would recommend brewing at least 6 gallons or brewing a stronger, concentrated wort then diluting in the fermenter with distilled water to get to a larger volume.
How high is the thermowell on the 7 gallon version?
William Grant on Dec 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 3" from the top of the cone.
Is there a recommend carb stone?
William Grant on Jan 15, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The flex chamber has ports that will thread to a Ball Lock adapter (KG500) which can couple to the Carb Stone (KEG594). Otherwise we recommend using a TriClamp carb stone (H668) as a replacement for the blow off arm once fermentation is complete.
What is the distance between the legs? I need to know if I can fit on my counter.
California Jones on Sep 17, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I have the 14 gal and they measure 13” outside to outside.
To move into secondary fermentation can I just remove the flex chamber filled with trub then clean the flex chamber and reconnect it? Is that still considered secondary fermentation?
Brandon Barnett on Jan 21, 2024
BEST ANSWER: Short answer, yes. But you may have more trub & yeast. After removing the flex chamber I attach a reducer & tubing that I also use to CIP. The tubing slows the flow. You can slowly open the valve & watch a controlled flow of trub drain. I use a bus tub to catch this. Remove reducer & tubing. Clean that valve with starsan. No need to reconnect flex chamber. If you do, do not open valve & release oxygen into your beer. Also watch for sanitizer climbing the blow off tube. You might need a little co2 in to fix that. Good luck with a clean clear secondary. One last thing, if you drain too much you may end up with the beer below the level of the chiller & limit how cold you can crash.
Will the Peltier system be able to crash cool a batch? how cold will it go assuming relativity normal ambient air temps? Thanks
Chris Dornbach on Apr 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The peltier system can cool up to 30 degrees below ambient temperatures especially with the insulating jacket on the fermenter.

Overall pretty solid with some questionable decisions
I have some issues with this Uni Pro tank:
1) It's not 14 gallons. Max liquid is around 11.6 gallons (see image attached). You can even see on the product video the markers showing this, so I think it is deceptive they claim it's 14 gallons. You might be pressed to actually get full 10 gallon batch after hose loss, yeast, trub, etc.
2) The ball lock post locations leave literally no room to get the disconnects on with the clamp. See image. It's a bad design, and honestly, how I even got them to fit was a miracle.
3) Some of the text etching on the lid/parts is poor and blurry in spots. Not a deal breaker but I'd expect top quality at this price point.
4) Gasket for top was too big, so I had to get morebeer to ship out a second one, which ended up fitting.

I'm pretty bitter about the first point, its not 14 gallons. Even before my purchase morebeer reps via email consistently said it holds 14 gallons of liquid, and at one point said it held 15 gallons. I don't think they ever actually looked at a unit in person or looked at the promo video, they just read off the spec sheet. For a top-end pro fermentation model I'd expect better from morebeer and brew built. I ended up ordering it anyway because the features were basically what I wanted and no one else (to my knowledge) had an all-in-one temperature controlled vessel like this.

Some nice things:
1) Peltier tech does work pretty well, it will go around 20 degrees higher or lower from ambient temperature. I keep mine in the garage so even though the X1 Uni Pro is temperature controlled, I still can't do lagers in the summer where I'm at, but I knew this going in. Just keep that in mind.
2) Quality of welds and sturdiness seems good.
3) I opted for the castor wheels so I can roll it around my garage as needed. I push the liquid out the top of the ball lock port when kegging, but if you aren't going that route, it probably would make more sense to stand it on a table. Just think it through before ordering according to your setup.

So overall, it is very nice. I'm giving it 3 stars because I am quite bitter over the fact that after several emails, the staff never acknowledged the mistake. Even some youtube videos I saw people said the same thing. For one of the nicest and top-end luxury fermenters available for homebrewers it just doesn't seem right. It's expensive! And rightfully so. But spend the extra 10 minutes to measure the volume correctly! Also the ball lock post locations is a really bad design error. They should redesign that cap and send everyone who ordered one a replacement when it gets sorted.
Literally no room for ball lock disconnect with clamp attached.
I have no idea why the image rotated with morebeer website. The volume marker says 44L or 11G

Groundbreaking and Almost Perfect. The Little Things Hold It Back.
This was my first conical from that initial exploratory pre-fab homebrew bucket kit, and wow, what a difference! The X1 Uni Pro is indeed as sturdy as advertised, the four legs really do provide for increased stability, and the whole thing just feels solid from the ground up. The fit and finish are impeccable. The assembly was easy, and this thing really cuts a striking figure. The jacket and foam insulation come already attached to the vessel itself, which strikes me as a difficult thing to do yourself, so that's another convenience you're paying for. The tri-clamp fittings go together very easily, and easy finger tightening gets you an airtight seal in all the areas that matter. Several batches and PBW cycles later, the interior remains stain free and shiny. As far as the actual vessel itself goes, it's the real deal.

Now, bear in mind, this thing's gonna run you approximately one 1995 Honda Civic's worth of cashola. Keeping that in mind, the nerve of MoreBeer to ask for 65 bucks for the absolutely necessary caster wheels feels like a slap in the face. Pro tip: any set of casters with a 3/8'' fitting will work here; I paid $17 with free prime shipping on Amazon for casters that fit perfectly, and you WILL need them if you're a hobbyist who doesn't plan to permanently install this somewhere. Having the wheels on is a godsend, and enables me to roll the thing out of my garage onto my patio and immediately hose it down after racking my batch to a keg, making cleanup a complete breeze.

Speaking of things that aren't included, but should be: if you want to pressure transfer or carbonate in the vessel, you've got to unscrew the blowoff u-barb at the top and replace it with a provided tri-clamp end cap. This is once again completely unnecessarily complicated and once again, completely fixable by throwing more money at it. I installed a 1.5'' locking ball valve ($27 on Amazon with Prime) on that fitting and put the u-barb on top of it, making closing that opening as easy as turning a lever an inch or two. There's really no reason either of these things shouldn't already be there for what you're paying.

Now, for what you DO get for your money, the pressure pack and flex chamber. The pressure pack is a near flawless piece of engineering, and the floating ball racking tube combination really does what it's supposed to do and draws only from the top so that all of the sediment is left behind. My final product has never been more clear and sediment free, so hats off to MoreBeer for that really nice piece of kit. The flex chamber is also an excellent accessory, but it does come with the caveat that you will find it almost impossible to remove from the bottom of the unit without spilling a bit of beer sludge out of the top. It simply does not fit through the opening between the conical and its legs straight up and down as it should. It's a shame, because the flex chamber works beautifully. The trub, sediment, and spent yeast stays in the flex chamber and is easily disposed of. It would be completely perfect if it weren't for that small little spill that is guaranteed to happen. Hopefully the next revision of this product fixes that.

What sets this apart from other stainless conicals is, of course, the temperature control, and I'm pleased to say that it works very, very well. The cooler on my unit frequently forms ice on the heat sink because it gets so cold. My basement has been around 75 degrees or so in summer, for reference. It is definitely capable of cold crashing my beer... or it would be, if I hadn't ignored MoreBeer's warnings about how high up on the unit the cooler sits. If you only plan on brewing 5-7 gal batches, then you really need to stick with the 7gal unit. This is explicit on the store page and in the Q and A, but, like a fool, I just couldn't see only getting the 7gal unit when the 14gal was only $100 more. The Peltier unit is great for cold transfer when it makes contact with the liquid in the vessel, but if you haven't gotten that much in it, the best it can do is slowly but steadily condition the inside air of the unit, which it does well.

One thing needs to be said, and that's that like another reviewer, my first fermenter arrived with both defective cooling and heating units. This would have been heartbreaking, but the MoreBeer customer service team not only shipped me out a new one, but allowed me to hang onto the old one to finish out my batch until the new one arrived. MoreBeer gets an absolute A+ in customer service for me.

So, in short: If you're serious about brewing, and tired of messing about with fridges and freezers, immersion chillers, and bucket heaters, this is the convenience you're looking for, and is well worth the money. If you don't have a bunch of money to blow and you want to make sure you're getting a Lamborghini for a Lamborghini price tag, you may want to consider waiting until the next revision of this design. I love mine and that's all that matters.
The whole setup. Gotta say, the X1 looks pretty sharp.

Temp control stopped working during first fermentation
I was excited to get this fermenter. A big part of the excitement was the built-in temperature control, which supposedly maintains a temperature within 1 degree of the set point. I brewed my first batch for this fermenter on March 27. The temp control worked beautifully for the first week and a half, maintaining a temperature within 1 degree of my set point of 63, but then the temperature started rising well above that, reaching 10 degrees above the set point on the day I was planning to cold crash. I gave the machine a rest overnight and then turned it back on and set the temperature to 33, but the temp never got back down anywhere close to 63, much less the cold crash temperature I had hoped for. I ended up transferring to a keg last night and tossing the keg in a kegerator to cold crash.

Although I have the fermenter in my garage and would expect the hotter temperatures in the summer to reduce the ability of the Peltier technology to cool the wort/beer, the temperatures in my garage have not gone above about 75.

I don't know if the temp control issue is a flaw in my specific fermenter or an overall design flaw that will affect all of these fermenters. I contacted Morebeer but have not heard back from them.

In addition to the temp control issue, there are a few other issues, albeit more minor: (1) the flex chamber is a great idea but not well thought out for this design. Because of the cross bars at the bottom of the legs, it is impossible to remove the chamber without tipping it at a sharp angle and, thus, spilling lots of trub juice all over the place. I'm sure I could figure out a workaround for this issue, but I wish they had thought this through better to make it more convenient to use. (2) the floating dip tube used for pressure transferring to a keg leaves a significant amount of beer behind. I did not measure the volume, but it was much more than I would prefer to leave in the fermenter.

Response from MoreFlavor
Sorry for the issues, we test every machine after manufacturing so your unit must have experienced some damage in shipment. As always we are here to fix and or replace the unit as needed! I am not sure what size fermenter you have but on the 7 gallon the fit to remove the Flex Chamber is tight and you might have to place a drip tray under the conical when removing the Flex Chamber. We are taking that into consideration on future models. We would like to hear more about the floating dip tube not taking out as much beer as you like. Both the floating racking ball and more traditional rotating racking arm do leave some beer behind. If you want to remove maximum beer from the conical one method you can use with the Brewbuilt is to remove all the trub via the Flex Chamber and then to draw the beer out via the bottom butterfly valve.

Response from MoreFlavor
Alternatively, if you would like to try a traditional rotating racking arm, we also sell item CONP320 - Racking Arm For Conical (With Sample Valve) and it fits perfectly in the 1.5" ferrule that is located in the cone. Thank you again for your feedback.

Awesome product
My first impressions of my 7 gal Brewbuilt Uni Pro was WOW. This fermenter looks amazing! The quality is on point with fantastic welds and a mirror shine finnish. I haven’t done a fermentation with it yet but its coming in a few weeks. I have done a few test on it, to see how well it operates. First test was a pressure check. I was able to get it to 15.5 psi before the PRV opened and after it closed it held 15 PSI. So pressure test went as advertised. Next test was the cooling test. I set the ambient temperature in the room to 67 deg. I then set the fermenter controller to 37 deg and let it do its thing. After 48 hr it only got as low as 44.5 deg. Not to bad but not exactly the 30 deg drop that was advertised. Still plenty cold enough for what I need to do. On to the next test, heating. Ambient room temp the same and I was able to get it up to 77.4 deg in a 48 hr test. So all in all test went well and I will be able to ferment allot of different style beers. I wish it would get hotter so I could use some Kveik yeast. I’m sure when the time comes I will be able to figure something out to make that happen.

So the only issue I had when setting it up right out of the box was the 2” butterfly dump valve. When I installed it the handle would hit the legs and cross bar. I contacted MoreBeer and they 2 day FedEx me a new valve out that works perfect. Other than that, no issues.

I did add two 1.5” butterfly valves, one on the blow off port and one were the sample valve goes. I just think it will make it more versatile. Also put on the caster wheels, which was a must for me to help move it around in the brewery.

All in all I am very happy with my purchase and cant wait to put some wart in it.

First batch in the X1!
After a bit of a delay as we waited for a hold-out neoprene jacket, the conical is now filled and the little yeasties are doing their temperature controlled business to make some magic. Form and fit look great and I'll be back to update after a little time with X1. As of right now I'm super excited with my newest addition!

A little small
While making a 12 gallon back of beer I discovered that the conical only holds 11G. I was told by MB that the 14 G is with the lid completely filled. This leaves very little head space for fermentation. I had to dump a couple gallons of beer. If you are making a DDH IPA you want a 12G base due to absorption by the hops.
Other than that, it has all the parts to create flexible configs. The temp control is keeping the beer at a steady temp. I am looking forward to see how well it cold crashes.
