Description

The guys over at Ss Brewing Technologies took what was already a really cool product and just made it a lot better for just a little more money than the original Brew Bucket. Introducing the Brewmaster Bucket! By popular demand, they've now added a very nice weldless thermowell and LCD thermometer. So now you can get your temp readings right off your Bucket without having to mess around with tacky, temporary thermometers!

What really sets Ss Brewing Technologies Brewmaster Bucket apart from other fermenters is that it has a conical bottom that allows trub to settle out in a concentrated space that minimizes the surface area of the trub that is in contact with your beer.  The included Patent Pending Rotating Racking Valve allows you to rotate the racking arm inside the fermentor down during fermentation to minimize trub, after fermentation is complete, simply rotate the racking arm up to get nothing but crystal clear beer. Etched Volume Markers on the inside come in handy when filling.

As with the Brew Bucket, the build quality is really amazing for the price. The welds are clean. The lid is strong and the spring loaded lid hatches are solid.  The lid includes a removable, molded silicone gasket that ensures an airtight seal.  We love an airtight seal so that we can be sure to see the airlock working.  The welded on stainless handles make the Brewmaster Bucket fermentor easy to move.

Features:

  • Certified Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel Construction
  • Patent Pending Stainless Rotating Racking Valve
  • 6.95 gal Max Capacity
  • LCD temperature gauge / thermometer
  • 40° Conical Bottom for Trub Trapping
  • Nests for Storage, Stacks for Ferment!
  • Molded Silicone Lid Gasket
  • Spring Loaded Lid Clamps for Airtight Lid Seal
  • Offset Airlock Hole includes Silicone Stopper
  • Gallon Markers inside for visual volume assessment
  • Stainless construction resists damage and is easy to clean
  • All other specs same as Brew Bucket

Most features in a brewbucket.
It’s a one stop shop and prevents from potential contamination during a transfer to a carboy. I also got the brewmaster edition which works great for lagering. The fact that these are stackable is great as it reduces the overall footprint. I have purchased 2 of them.

Great product!!
The Brewmaster is a great fermentor, I really utilize thermometer. I would highly recommend. I'm going to purchase my third one, so that I can do 15 gallon batches.

Fantastic fermenter
I have used this item for several batches (4),. I have been attaching a blowoff tube (1/2" silicone tubing) to the opening in the fermenter and running the CO2 into the keg to purge it, and it has been great. Transfers are simple, just hook onto the hose barb and open the valve to drain into the keg...what could be easier.

But really, it has been pretty good. I clean it on a Mark II keg and carboy cleaner and it fits fine. A bit of PBW and hot water and after 20 minutes the thing is sparkling.

The rotatable racking arm is fine, but I don't tend to use it. If the nut is too tight on the fitting then the o-ring can get bound up and cause a major leak. I tend to just leave the racking arm in a single position pointed to the side and that is that.

I harvest the yeast after transferring to a keg by swirling things up and running out the material through the valve into a mason jar (or two). Works just fine, no complaints.

I have used glass carboys, Big Mouth Bubblers, a Fast Ferment Conical (1st gen), and this i by a good margin the best one.

Taking samples is simple with the valve. A few mL and you can get a good refractometer sample out of it.

Easy to carry/move around. The handles and feet seem pretty sturdy so I'm not concerned with that.

The thermowell fits the probe from my STC-1000, but only just. Tight fit, but I guess that isn't a bad thing.

Replaced the inside O-ring
I've had some problems with it leaking from the spigot. I replaced the inside O-ring with a teflon washer and it seems to do the trick. It's a little more difficult to rotate but still functional for re-positioning the racking arm. The OD= 1", ID= 5/8" and thickness 1/16". Bought the teflon washers off EBay for $3.50 a piece.
The 5/8 " ID is a little tight and had to screw it on in order to get the nut started. You could probably use 220 grit or even better 400 grit sandpaper to modify the washer to make it easier to get off and on.
I use a 7/8" deep socket on the inside nut so I don't scratch the fermenter.

7 gallon Brew Bucket
Great product! I am glad I bought the Brewmaster version because I love the thermalwell and included temp indicator. I will probably buy a second one for the occasional 10 gallon batch.

Tricky Gaskets
It works great. I use it as a primary fermenter only.

I didn't appreciate having to clean it with a special cleaner before I could use it. TSP isn't expensive but it is harmful to the environment and I don't like using caustic substances. I have other stainless steel equipment by another manufacturer which didn't require special cleaning.

The o-ring gaskets get displaced if you tighten them too much, I only hand tighten them now. I've used the fermenter several times now and the last time I had no leakage. Because of the type of gasket being used the spigot is not solidly attached to the bucket. It allows for the "feature" of re-positioning the rack arm. I'll be looking to replace them with teflon food grade flat washers and hopefully still be able to rotate the spigot.

The Thermowell, you need it.

I use warm water and my hand to clean the fermenter, that's just how easy it is to clean. You don't have to use a cleaner. I do wipe it out with a soft sponge that has some Dawn dish soap in it and rinse thoroughly.

4 stars only because of having to clean it, otherwise 4.5 stars because of the o-rings.
I really like this fermenter and would recommend it.
It's time to re-purpose your fermenting bucket and start brewing better beer.

Unbelievable product
I haven't had any leak issues other people mentioned. I rotate the spigot all the time. It's steep price wise but an amazing product. ThI bottom isn't too big but I've never had trub that didn't fit inside.

I paired it up with their temperature controller and it is unreal. Again, while $$$$ I've used this with tha temp to lager and to precisely control a temp increase for Belgian beers. This is my favorite brew equipment

Great Product - Second Purchase
My wife bought me a brew bucket for xmas 2016. When I received my bonus from work in March I bought a second one. The only con is the legs could be a little longer (like 4") to make getting a sample easier when the bucket is sitting on the floor and not a ledge of some sort. Otherwise I absolutely love my brew buckets. The sanitary valve on the fermentor reduces oxygen during transfer to a keg if you use a hose with an output post, purge the keg with co2 and open the vent to transfer from the bottom up. Fantastic.
