Fermentation Equipment

Welcome to the Fermentation Equipment page! When it comes to primary fermentation, most of us will use a standard food grade plastic bucket. They’re simple, cheap, easy to clean, and they work great. Some folks like to ferment in a 6.5 gallon glass carboy, so you can watch your beer ferment like you’re at the aquarium on 2-for-1 day. For a secondary vessel, you’ll need a carboy that is the same volume as your batch so as to eliminate head space and oxidation. There is also great debate about glass vs. plastic. Plastic is much lighter, doesn’t shatter, and has a larger opening at the mouth. The major drawback of plastic is that it will scratch and score if you use a brush to clean it. Glass does not have this concern, but it is very heavy and prone to shattering. Both work well and, as far as your beer is concerned, there is no difference between them. To make your fermentation the best it can be, be sure to take a look at our stoppers and airlocks, conical fermenters, tubing and siphoning, aeration equipment, and temperature control devices.

    Better Bottle™ carboys are not like other plastic carboys for homebrewing beer and wine, they’re better! Ideal for home wine making and homebrewing beer, they are lightweight and easy to move around.

    The special PET, used to make Better Bottle™ carboys, is non-absorbing, non-porous, and non-wetting (hydrophobic), so it will not carry over flavors from one batch of wine or beer to the next and it is easier to clean and sanitize than glass or other plastics.

    $29.99$198.99

    If you could eliminate one chronic homebrewing time-suck, what would it be? How about the Transfer Trap…You know, where you endlessly shift your homebrewed beer from fermenter, to secondary to bottling bucket, to bottles, risking contamination and messy spills at every step.

    The great news is, you can. There’s a better, simpler way: The Catalyst – an ingeniously designed fermentation system from Craft-A-Brew that separates sediment, eliminates transfers and allows you to bottle straight from your fermenter.

    The Catalyst’s tank is made from Tritan™, a food-safe, BPA-free polymer. This revolutionary material retains the same clarity and smoothness of glass, but is resistant to shattering. It is more durable and outlasts the other types plastic typically used in homebrewing. You can even put it and the removable silicone gasket in your dishwasher for easy cleanup. Properly cared for, the tank will last for years to come.

    With The Catalyst Fermentation System, it’s easier than ever to make great beer at home…and look good, AND save time, AND…what are you waiting for? Escape the Transfer Trap and learn some better brewing moves today.

    #10 Silicone Stopper Ther..

    $24.99

    This carboy thermowell is used in conjunction with the Digital Controller, FE601A, FE610A, or FE602, to more accurately regulate internal temperature during fermentation. It is exceptionally useful during the start of fermentation when the lag between ambient temperature in the refrigerator and actual temperature in the carboy can vary greatly. Now you can keep your beer or wine within one degree of the set point on your digital controller. Designed to fit either 3, 5 or 6 gallon PLASTIC carboys or any other similarly sized opening hole. The unit comes with a 15″ stainless steel thermowell and a #10 silicone stopper that will accommodate our sanitary filter, FIL90, as well. It can be used in any container with a stopper opening of this size where you need to accurately monitor and control liquid temperature.

    Will not work with Johnson Temperature Controllers (FE600 or FE611) because the probes are too large.

  • 3/16″ ID Silicone T..

    3/16″ ID Silicone T..

    $1.39

    Silicone draft tubing has a number of applications, but our favorite is in barrel top-up systems. The tubing’s high elasticity makes it easy to attach & detach from barbs without cutting the tubing and makes it possible to skip hose clamps in a low pressure (2-3 psi) application. Due to the tubing’s higher-than-vinyl oxygen permeability, we don’t recommend this for permanent installations where it will have product sitting in the lines.

    Approximate OD: 3/8 in. Maximum Working Pressure: 20 psi. Burst Pressure (Room Temp): 60 psi.
