I have been brewing for quite a while now and over the years I have purchased a lot of home beer brewing equipment. This 7 gallon stainless steel conical fermenter may be my best home brew purchase. Initially when I started out home brewing, I was fermenting in 6 gallon glass carboys. I would use two of them, one for primary fermentation and the other for secondary fermentation. They were heavy, took up a lot of space, were difficult to move around, did not shield my homebrew from light, were a pain in the ass to clean and I had broken at least 2 of them over the years when they either cracked or the top sheared off when coming in contact with the ground. Worst of all was knowing that if I had dropped one while relocating it that I was probably in for a trip to the hospital because those broken fragments of glass are sharper than knives.This 7 Gallon Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter on the other hand is honestly the perfect fermentation vessel for home beer brewing in my opinion. It holds 7 gallons of fermenting beer, wine or cider; which is the perfect size for a 5 gallon batch. It allows you to both dump trub and harvest yeast via its large 1.5″ valve at the conical base. One upgrade that I made to my stainless steel conical fermenter was adding this More Beer rotating racking arm, which I upgraded to MoreBeer’s ultimate racking arm. That is an upgrade that I would highly recommend.
Some additional benefits of this stainless conical fermenter over traditional glass and plastic carboys is that it does not allow light to come in contact with your home brew, you can conduct CO2 transfers to eliminate any contact with oxygen, comes with a thermowell for temperature regulation, fits in most chest freezers (if you reduce the leg size) and is incredible easy to clean. In addition to that it is inexpensive for a high end piece of stainless steel home brewing equipment. MoreBeer currently has them on sale for just $399 and they ship for free! If you are looking to buy a stainless steel conical fermenter, they can be purchased here.
I have been using mine for I think right about 2 1/2 years now and it has been worth every penny that I paid for it. It is high quality and the handles on the side are welded strong, so I never need to worry about one busting off, even when it is fully loaded!

Coupon Description: MoreBeer.com currently has a coupon code that will get you 25% Off a Deluxe MoreBeer 27 Gallon Stainless Steel Conical Fermenter. These home brewing stainless conical fermenters are perhaps the best homebrewing fermenters available. Best of all, they are built right here in the United States and fabricated in the MoreBeer metal shop. These conicals are built from 304 stainless steel and with the ability to hold up to 5 psi of pressure. More Beer conical fermenters are the standard by which other conical fermentors are measured and feature professional quality tri-clamp sanitary home brewing fittings that are welded in place for a lifetime of use and all the hardware is brewery quality.
The More Beer rotating racking arm allows you to adjust where you are drawing beer from on the inside of the fermentor, a key feature when you have different amounts of trub from batch to batch. This is the same racking arm that I use on my SS Brew Tech stainless steel conical fermenters. The 3″ tri-clamp opening on top allows you to easily add hops, oak, fruit, or whatever. We have a great selection of options including let extensions, casters, CO2 pressure gauges, blow-off and thermowell packages.

These stainless steel conical fermenters are loaded with features and I personally have two of them, a 7 gallon and a 14 gallon. I also have 2 of their 7 gallon brew bucket stainless steel fermenters which are also great. In my opinion they are the best fermenters out there for the money. I would recommend upgrading the racking arm on the unit to the MoreBeer Racking Arm system which you can find here for $75 and is shown in the above image on my fermenter.
I cut down the legs in this 7 gallon conical fermenter so that it could fit in my fermentation chamber / chest freezer. My 14 gallon conical fermenter has an internal temperature control system. The 14 gallon unit is currently on sale for $495 and is available here.
