Description

The new and improved 55L FermZilla brought to you by the critical minds and engineers behind the original Fermentasaurus Gen 1. Although the original Fermentasaurus was revolutionary at the time of its conception, there's always room for improvement. This is partly due to the strong community of Fermentasaurus users who have helped push for an improved conical unitank.

The FermZilla is the perfect option for brewers that want all the advantages of a conical fermenter without the price tag of a full blown stainless steel unit. It allows you to dump trub, harvest yeast, and with the addition of the 55L FermZilla Pressure Kit (now available for pre-order!), you can carbonate and serve – all in one vessel! The clear PET tank allows you to visually monitor fermenation activity and is pressure rated to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi), which means you can ferment under pressure, reducing ester and fusel alcohols in your finished beer. This also gives you the ability to perform pressure transfers. If you prefer to move your finished beer to a keg or other vessel, you can do so with little to no oxygen exposure.
 
New and Improved:
1. Larger Dump Valve - 3" butterfly dump valve is more resistant to clogging from large amounts of trub
2. Larger Opening - 4.75" top port opening allows for easier cleaning
3. Less Headspace - more appropriately sized for 10-gallon batches. Purging the headspace of oxygen is easier and more effective.
 
What's Included:
  • FermZilla 55L Tank with Butterfly Dump Valve
  • Reinforced Stainless Steel Stand
  • Top Lid with PRV (35 psi)
  • 1000 ml Collection Container & Lid
  • 3-Piece Airlock
  • Graduation Sticker
  • Adhesive Thermometer
  • Strap Wrench
  • Spare Seals

Specs:

  • 55 L (13.2 gal) Total Volume
  • Pressure Rated to 2.4 Bar (34.8 psi)
  • Temperature Rated to 122°F (high temp replacement tank coming soon!)
  • Height in Stand - 40.1"
  • Height w/ Airlock - 43.5"
  • Tank Diameter - 13.9"
  • Diameter in Stand - 15.7"
  • Lid & Collection Container Ports - 28 mm PCO 1881 threads

Please note: when using the FermZilla under pressure, you must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this, fill your FermZilla up with water, apply at least 15 psi pressure, and check for leaks around all caps and threads.

Leaking Lid
I have tried several attempts to get the lid not to leak when fermenting under pressure. I purchased another lid but still leaking. I have the Fermentasaurus and no leak problems.

Looks good so far BUT does not come with SS Handle
In the Video on Kegland for this product they show how they were going to have integrated plastic handles, but they found the quality to be lacking and did not want people to drop it so they "went back to the drawing board" to redesign it with SS handles. Even the Instructions shows the SS Handles. The Video they said it made the cost a little more but it was worth it for the quality. Then it comes and says that the SS handles are an accessory. Morebeer does not even have this listed as an accessory Even Kegland has it listed as FermZilla - Replacement 304 Stainless Steel Handle
In Stock
$12.95 Meaning Replacement... Not accessory.
This I found to be very disappointing. I don't blame Morebeer at all. I will be putting this on Keglands page too.
