Description

Want an easy to use stainless vessel that ferments and carbonates? This 50L/13.2 Gallon keg has been modified to allow you to do both! The top is fitted with a large 4 inch tri clamp opening with two ball lock posts and a pressure relief valve. You can use this vessel to ferment, carbonate, serve, or push the beer through a filter. The posts are recessed which allows you to stack these kegs up to 4 high. A 4" T.C. end cap with pre drilled hole is also available (H691), which can be paired with a #3 stopper and airlock. 

Features:

  • Rated up to 3.5 BAR (50 psi)
  • Never use the Kegmenter without the pressure relief valve in place
  • 4 in Triclamp lid
  • Ball lock posts built into lid
  • Pressure Relief Valve
  • Stainless steel 1.8 mm thick

Use:

  • As a stainless steel fermenter that is easy to clean
  • Great choice for 10 gallon ferments
  • Easy to pressurize the kegmenter after fermentation to push through a filter and into another keg
  • Fermenting under pressure, allowing co2 to exit via the relief valve, reduces esters and fusel alcohol production allowing you to ferment at warmer temperatures
  • Distillation - with the addition of a T.C. reducer and condenser (H701 / DS120 / DS130)
  • As a cellar keg for topping up barrels
  • For holding and dispensing chemicals for carpet cleaning and other industrial applications

Moving from 5 gal to 10 gal batches and wanting to start pressure fermentation.

No more glass! I can also now easily approach pressurised fermentations and other new techniques.

I brew 10 gallon batches. This will fit nicely in my deep freeze, clean up nicely and allow me to transfer under C02 pressure.
Mitch H on Apr 12, 2019
I already ferment under pressure in a 5 gallon keg, but 5 gallons in a 5 gallon keg is tight. the extra space will be nice plus it's the same price as the 7.6 gallon

I picked this up to dip my toe in fermenting under pressure. The idea of serving from the fermentation vessel is also appealing.

Can this system be used to bottle wine?
Jeremy Cusimano on Apr 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I agree with the nitrogen, but if didn't have nitrogen would just push with CO2. The flexibility of this container allows for, if you want other fittings for the lid, just buy another 4" disk online and fabricate to meet your needs. The beverage out pickup tube is about .5" off of bottom of keg.
Does this kegmenter have a floating dip tube like the 15gal version?
daniel on Dec 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the dip tub is solid. Approximately 19 5/8" in length.
The bottom of the dip tube does reside in a divot in the center of the keg leaving virtually no liquid behind.
I had purchased an additional dip tube that I cut approximately 1" short to push my beer with co2 to a purged clean and sanitized keg for secodary to get the beer off of the trub after primary.
This worked quite well.
Is there a way to pair temperature control devices with this fermenter? A modified (closed end dip tube) or a custom lid with a Thermowell would be awesome.
Tim Otten on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: ou can go to spike brewing site and get a coil for a cf5 fits perfect same size tc. I just driled a 1/4 hole pressure relase valve and anither for a thermowell works perfect hocked up with a pump and glycol chiller and inkbird to mantain temp.
Is the 15 gal version available?
Viktor Vitishko on Sep 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Viktor - Currently we only offer a 50L.
What are the dimensions?
Gabriel Adler on Sep 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The keg is 21.5 inches tall and 16 inches accross
How do you adjust the adjustable pressure relief valve?
ANTHONY FONTES on Feb 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You need an additional valve called a spunding valve that can be attached to the gas post.
Can this be used for Alcobase Extreme 23% without using pressure relief valve?
Jim Riffe on Feb 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Possibly, this keg is rated for up to 50 psi.
how does

How do you adjust the adjustable pressure relief valve? I did not get a manual or any literature with my order.
ANTHONY FONTES on Feb 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item will need the adjustable pressure valve to be able to adjust the pressure.

kegasaurus!
This is the second kegmentor i purchased its fantastic ferments lagers at ale temps with no off flavors use with a spunding valve and a good healthy yeast pitch you ferment under pressure@15 to 25 PSI AFTER 1 week beer is carbonated yeast is usually attenuated and you can cold crash add gelatin and bring pressure up to 30 PSI let condition for 7 more days done! i gave a 4 star because you need the stainless float and silicone tube!! but you can buy that extra. 7.5 gal it comes with it

Low budget, higher volume option that fits into my stand up freezer.
Excellent craftsmanship and great looking welds. Holds pressure great. I tighten down the clamp by hand and experience no leaks. I installed a float style silicone beer line from my old fermentsaurus and it works mint. Marked the ball lock posts with a sharpie so as not to get those mixed up. No option for adding dry hops without introducing oxygen though.

Not bad
Only complaint I have is gaskets that came with it was stained for some reason. The other issue is the tri clamp fitting needs to be one super tight other wise it leaks at the jointed end. You will need a screwdriver or other leverage device to tighten it enough. Just be sure to test it with about 20-30 psi and tighten it until you hear it stop leaking. Then vent off to the psi you want.

Haven't used yet. Quality welds on 4" TC disk. I should enjoy using for many years. Good investment. Can be Primary, brite tank, and/or serving vessel. Very flexible accessory to add to home brewing setup.
