With the FermZilla Pressure Kit you can ferment under pressure, carbonate, and serve without ever needing to move your beer out of the fermenter. The kit inlcudes two plastic female threaded ball lock fittings with barbs, which thread onto the existing openings atop the FermZilla's lid. For the beverage out, you'll have a silicone dip tube with stainless steel float, allowing you to always draw from the clearest beer at the top of the tank. Pick up the Pressure Kit and turn your FermZilla into a true unitank!

Includes one red and one yellow ball lock cap to help differentiate which one is being used for liquid and which one for gas. Either color can be used for either function.

The silicone dip tube is 31" long. It will work perfectly as is for the 55L FermZilla. For the 27L model we recommend cutting the dip tube shorter to remove unwanted slack.

With the optional Floating Dip Tube Filter, you can prevent hop material and other solids from ever entering the dip tube. Especially handy when you're pulling samples mid-fermentation!

Fermenting Under Pressure:
The pressure kit allows for fermenting under pressure, which will reduce esters and fusel alcohol production. This means you can ferment at warmer temperatures than you normally would, even making lagers at room temperature. Most commerical beer is fermented under pressure simply due to the size of commercial tanks and the pressure that is created by the column of beer. It is one of the distinct differences between homebrewing and brewing on a commercial scale. The FermZilla's lid already comes with a built-in pressure relief valve that will blow at 35 psi; the pressure kit simply allows you to add CO2 through the ball lock fitting. We strongly recommend that you also purchase an adjustable pressure relief valve, or spunding valve, which allows you to set a lower pressure. It's always a good idea to have two relief valves on the FermZilla anytime the unit is under pressure.
Carbonating, Transferring, and Serving:
When you are fermenting under pressure the beer is already carbonated when you are done fermenting. You can control the level of carbonation by using a spunding valve. This means you can eliminate kegging and serve directly from the fermenter. We love this idea but there will probably still be times that you want to keg. Attach a beer line from the FermZilla's bev out to your keg and enjoy the easiest kegging experience ever.  You can also choose to send carbonated beer through a beer filter on the way to your keg.  When applying pressure with a CO2 tank also make sure that you have a functional relief valve on your CO2 regulator.  
Eliminate Oxidation:
Since the beer always has a CO2 blanket through fermentation and during any transfers out, oxidation is eliminated. When you cold crash you won't be sucking air back in through an airlock.
Key Features:
  • Ferment beer under pressure to reduce ester and fusel alcohol production
  • Always draw clear beer with the floating dip tube
  • Keg beer that has already been carbonated
  • Use CO2 to push beer into a keg or through a filter into a keg
  • Eliminate kegging altogether by carbonating and serving directly from the FermZilla

Installation Note: For best performance, ensure there is not an excess amount of slack when the silicone dip tube is installed and shorten it if needed. With the floating dip tube installed on your empty FermZilla, you ideally want the dip tube to hang freely with just enough length for the end of the dup tube to touch the bottom of the tank.

Please note: pressure kit does not include the lid pictured in the example photo. The ball locks and floating dip tube are installed on the FermZilla's existing lid.

The only way to get liquid out of the Fermzilla, should have been included in the original package with the fermentor.

Since the FermZilla didn't work with metal CO2 ball lock fittings, I was hoping the plastic ones would work better. Alas, I can't keep pressure in the FermZilla. All the clamps and fittings show no leakage with Star San spray test. I put 20lbs in (sparkling cider) and it goes down to 5 lbs. in a few days. I repeat the process multiple times after I assume it has been carbonated, and the pressure keeps dropping. I love the look of the FermZilla. Like the floating dip tip filter I added on. The trub drops nicely into the collection container. But I want this to be serving container and it doesn't look like that will be the case. Sigh

Good product
Does what it's supposed to do. You just have to trim the hose down if you have the 7 gallon fermenter.

Great product, but it needs a little work.
The stainless pickup tube tends to stick up out of the beer and draw CO2 instead of beer. After reading the homebrew forums, I found out this is a common problem that can be remedied by adding stainless washers or nuts to the tube before sliding on the silicone tubing. The manufacturer needs to fix this! I'd rate it 5 stars if it worked correctly without modification.

Better than Stainless
Sounds silly, right? But the stainless caps are crazy difficult to disassemble for cleaning, and tend to be more fiddly to seal against leakage.
These are easy to disassemble and clean, work well, and fit both gas and liquid connectors.
I use stainless for gas connection and plastic for the CO2/Liquid connection on my pressure fermenters.
No confusion when taking a pressure reading or connecting a liquid line . . . .
