Description

Want an easy-to-use, stainless vessel that ferments and carbonates? This 29L/7.6 Gallon keg has been modified to allow you to do both! The top is fitted with a large 4 inch tri-clamp lid 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.

Depending on how long it will take to consume the finished beer, we recommend using two kegmenters, one for fermentation and one for carbonating and serving. After fermentation, there will be a large trub cake at the bottom of the vessel. Leaving finished beer on the trub for too long (2-3 weeks) may eventually lead to off-flavors. Check out our ball lock jumper line (KEG575) to easily transfer from one kegmenter to the other. Also consider our beer filter kit (FIL40), which will allow you to filter the beer during transfer.

Features:

  • Rated up to 2.5 BAR (36 psi)
  • 4" T.C. lid with ball lock posts
  • Floating dip tube
  • Stainless steel 1.8 mm thick

Use:

  • As a stainless steel fermenter that is easy to clean
  • Great choice for 5 gallon fermentations
  • 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

 

Warning: Always depressurize keg before removing lid.

Does not include spunding valve shown in example photo. Please see FIL42A.

I would like to ferment and carb in the same vessel. I like that it is larger than a 5 gallon keg and the floating diptube is great.

What are the dimensions with/without disconnects?
Matthew Riley on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew - Our database shows dimensions as - H15.75, W15.75, L16.5 the disconnects add approximately 3/4".
What would be the best way to add a thermowell to this?
Seth Clearwater on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I was wondering the same thing, my guess is that the easiest way is to use the alternative end-cap H691 and use a bung with a hole drilled for a thermowell. It would be nice if they offered a regular end-cap with a thermowell already welded; I tend not to trust FV surface temperature measurements and prefer in-wort reading as well.
Is this a full-height (skinny) 1/4 keg or the full-diameter (stubby) "pony keg"?
Skippy on Nov 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Curtis - Our database shows this with a diameter of 15.75.
Is there anything special you have to do to clean the keg before the first use?
T Alex Glaser on Jul 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have 8 of these now. I start by flushing 160F PBW through. On ALL of them. For the first time I get what looks like oil settle on top of the fill. I run the mix for a minute or 2 until no more oil forms on top. I dump the hot cleaner and flush with a light citric acid solution to neutralize. Then I follow with a 160F 10% citric acid mix to passivate for 10-15 min. Dump w/o rinse and allow to air dry fully. Just before use I soak in starsan while brewing, and dump just before pitching.
can the floating dip tube be easily replaced with a solid one? say one from a corny keg, cut to length?
Clint Rock on Mar 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Clint - Yup, that should be relatively simple as long as the replacement dip tube is cut to length and is compatible with ball lock posts.

A good value but welds not as sanitary as other kegs I own.
Seems like a great value for the price as finding these on secondary markets (10 gallon corneys I mean) is not easy.
Subtracting a star for how many welds inside that seem not to be as high quality as other kegs I own.
Also subtracting a star for the float ball appears to be connected to the dip tube with a silver solder connection. Not a sanitary weld. I'm a little disappointed there.
But again overall it's a good value if you can live with those challenges.

awesome
If you like lagers ferment with this under pressure 14 to 16 psi @ 68 to 72 deg cold crash after 5-6 days add geletan transfer under pressure to serving keg conition for 2 days your beer will be clear and carbonated ready to drink @10 to 14 days grain to glass lagers with no off flavors this kegmentor for me has truly been awesome you however need a gauge and a spunding valve i think for the money this is a more durable fermenter than the fermentasauris and it fits in your frige with ease
