Med en Grainfather Conical Fermenter har du full kontroll på temperaturen under gjæringsforløpet.
I pakken følger det med selve gjæringskaret, en Dual Valve Tap og en digital temperatur kontroller
Temperaturkontroll er en av - om ikke DET viktigste - ved brygging av øl. Gjæringen er eksotermisk, dvs at det utvikles varme, og for hjemmebryggere er det ofte vanskelig å sikre rett temperatur i vørteren i gjæringskaret, selv om gjæringskaret er plassert i for eksempel kjøleskap eller eller fryser med temperaturkontroll. Med Grainfather Conical Fermenter får du en svært nøyaktig styring, og du kan gi ølet ditt den ønskede smaksprofilen, gang på gang.
Når du har en Grainfather Conical Fermenter trenger du også noe å kjøle den ned med. Du kan da enten velge den rimelige Grainfather Pumpe kit løsningen (du trenger en pr Grainfather Conical Fermenter), eller så kan du velge den dyrere Grainfahter Glycol Chiller'en som kan styre opp til 4 Grainfather Conical Fermentere samtidig. Merk: det følger med ett slangesett når du kjøper en Grainfather Clycol Chiller, og du vil trenge ett slangesett til Grainfather Conical Fermetner du ønsker å koble til.
Med Dual Valve Tap løsningn kan du også tappe av gjæren som bunnfeller, evt tappe av vørter/øl for måling eller smaking.

Ferment like never before! The Grainfather Conical Fermenter give the brewer professional fermentation control, just like the commercial breweries. Fermentation is arguably the most important part of producing a good quality beer. A good fermentation environment starts with a clean and sterile fermenter, has a consistent controlled temperature base and exposure to oxygen is minimised. The Grainfather Conical Fermenter provides you with a modular system for all of this and more!
The Grainfather Conical Fermenter Pro Edition includes the basic unit plus the Dual Valve Tap and Temperature Controller. Allowing you to control the heating of your unit (and cooling with the Glycol Chiller available separately - availability TBC), dump yeast, take samples and transfer your wort via our innovative dual function valve design.
Double Walled: A stainless steel double walled skin is filled with a thick layer of polyurethane foam for insulation. This is what keeps the wort at a constant stable temperature with minimal influence from any external environmental temperature changes, providing insulation for your fermentation that a standard jacket cannot achieve.
Integrated Gentle Heating: In the cavity of the fermenter between the outer body and cone sits a 30 Watt, 12V heating element. Unlike standard heating elements/sources that directly heat the liquid, this heat source is designed to heat the environment in between the walls of the fermenter, which in turn heats the liquid. It is similar to controlling the temperature in a temperature controlled room. The fermenter acts as an artificial environment which can be heated, meaning the temperature is raised in an even and controlled manner which is much better for the yeast.
Integrated Cooling Sleeve: In between the two stainless steel walls sits a cooling sleeve (also made of stainless steel). This cooling sleeve is welded onto the inner wall of the fermenter and can be hooked up to the additionally purchased Glycol Chiller. Temperature is dialed into the Temperature Controller and as the cooling liquid travels through this sleeve, it cools the stainless steel which in turn evenly cools the beer in the fermenter. The cooling sleeve never comes into contact with the beer, it is completely concealed, built into the fermenter and never needs cleaning or sanitising - a true innovation for a fermenter of this scale.
Easy Access to the Interior for Hassle Free Cleaning: The Grainfather Conical Fermenter has a smooth interior with no additions such as cooling coils or additional sampling valves meaning it is easy to clean and minimises the risk of infection.
Golden Angle Conical: The conical shape of the fermenter is typical for professional breweries. Our conical has been designed with the 'Golden Angle' of 60º. This is the optimum angle for yeast and sediment to drop down to the bottom of the cone without getting stuck to the sides, allowing you to transfer from above the sediment line, resulting in clearer beer. The conical shape also allows for better mixing during fermentation due to the path of convention currents that it enables to occur.
Dual Valve Tap: Make the yeast dumping, transferring and sampling process more professional with this innovative all in one valve. Sampling and transferring is done through an inlet above the sediment line, allowing for clear, sediment free beer. Easily collect your yeast from below the sediment line with the same unique valve for recultivating and pitching. The innovative design of the valve allows for this dual functionality and less cleaning for you.
Temperature Control: The Temperature Controller easily snaps on and replaces the standard Temperature Display via magnets and pogo pins. Allowing you to accurately dial in a temperature and even set a temperature schedule/profile (you can set up to 4 profiles each with 5 stages). It can control the heating of the integrated heating element and the cooling (if you have upgrade to the Glycol Chiller).
