Affordable Stainless Steel Home Brewing Fermenters
Brew Bucket Stainless Steel Home Brewing Fermenter
For a long time stainless steel homebrew gear was either not available or priced so high that it made more sense to go with cheaper plastic of glass alternatives for items like fermenters. Over the last couple of years, new manufactures have entered the market place and with this increased competition, prices on stainless steel fermenters and home brewing equipment have dropped. One great example of this came about a year ago with the release of the Brew Bucket stainless steel fermenter!
The Brew Bucket is an excellent home brewing fermenter that has a very reasonable price tag attached to it. If you act now, it is even on sale at one of the big homebrew supply companies and you can pick it up for only $195 Stainless Homebrew Fermenter. The Stainless Steel Brew Bucket is an excellent fermenter for small beer batches. It has a capacity of 7 gallons so it is ideal for 5 to 6 gallon home brewing sessions and if you brew larger batches than that as I do, it may make sense to pick up a couple of them so that you can try out special fermentations on portions of your beer such as an alternate yeast strain, dry hopping with different hops, adding fruit and so on.
