Crooked Letter’s Top 3 Conical Beer Fermenters

Homebrewed beer is a big thing nowadays. Many consumers prefer the homebrewed ones rather than those stored in a can or bottle, which are made by most breweries locally and internationally.

Why, you ask? Although not known to many, this kind of beer has a lot of advantages to a person who drinks it.

First of them is the fun experience of making your own beer. Whenever we create something ourselves, we feel great and proud for being able to make it, especially when not a lot of people can do it.

That’s the same with beer; you can even make unique beers that other breweries can’t. Who knows, you can even come up with the greatest beer ever to be invented?

Imagine the fulfilling feeling of downing your self-made beer together with friends, and then they will tell you how good it is. You’re the man!

Second are the health benefits. Yes, we are undeniably aware that too much beer consumption bulges the stomach. However, this is not limited to beer and applies to every form of nourishment that we take in. The real hazard here is the excessive consumption and not beer itself.

But if you’re really keen on chugging down as much as you can, you might as well brew your own since it puts you in the ingredients that go in your ale. And by being in-charge of the entire brewing process, you’ll be able to maximize whatever nutritional value your chosen ingredients contain.

Third is the fact that you’ll be getting your money’s worth. Drinks are not always affordable, especially when they are of good quality and made up of expensive and hard to find ingredients.

But if you make your own beer, you’ll never even have to doubt its quality and wonder if it has enough of what you want because you’re the one that made it.

And lastly, they can reduce your hangover!

This is the best part of brewing your own beer. Since this kind of drink contains more yeast and Vitamin B, you can reduce your own hangover! It is positively recommended for night outs with your friends. You will not have to worry about getting the worst case of hangover in case you have work the next day.

Because of these advantages, Crooked Letters Brewing Company wants to share with you some of the best conical fermenter we know that will surely help you create the best beer you’ll ever taste in your life.

Best Beer Fermentation Tank Reviews

Strange Brew Fast Ferment Plastic Wall Mount Conical Fermenter(Stand Not Included), 7.9 gallon

Strange Brew Fast Ferment Plastic Wall Mount Conical Fermenter(Stand Not Included), 7.9 gallon

In general, Conical means uni-tank. It enables you to perform fermentation and storage without having to transfer it in a different fermentation vessel.

If you’ll think of it, this saves up your time since you will have one less item to clean. This is the perfect description for the first our recommendations, which is the Strange Brew Fast Ferment Plastic Wall Mount Conical Fermenter.

This conical is perfect for those who do not have enough time and are not well-versed when it comes to brewing beer.

You can purchase this on Amazon or Northern Brewer.

This conical is perfect for those who do not have enough time and are not well-versed when it comes to brewing beer. Once you purchase it, you will have to set-up the equipment, which should be pretty easy since the manufacturer have provided each unit with instructions on how pertaining to the assembly.

And even if you find their directions and instruction manuals hard to understand, there are plenty of how-to videos uploaded to video-sharing platforms, such as YouTube, that lays out the proper assembly of this fermenter.

Using this conical fermenter, we were even able to store beer in it until we are ready to transfer it in a bottle or some kind of container. Although it took us time to wrap every fitting with the Teflon tape, we were surprised to see that there were no leaks at all. Fast Ferment is efficient, gives less mess and less waste.

SS Brew Bucket Fermenter



Our second recommendation is the SS Brew Bucket Fermenter. Obviously, this is different from the first one because it’s made from stainless steel, which gives it a very posh look and makes cleaning a breeze.

The SS Brew Bucket Fermenter has etched storage markings on the inside which makes it easy when it comes to measurements.

Moreover, it also has a rotatable arm, which, when rotated downwards, helps you minimize trub. Rotating it upwards gives you a clear-looking drink. Complementing its rotating arm is its compact form factor. It’s also sturdy, quite easy to use and light weight, which made moving around while having it on-hand a less torturous experience.

All in all, the SS Brew Bucket Fermenter was relatively easy to handle and we had no sweat when we were cleaning it.

Kegco KC FP-CB-06 Glass Carboy, 6 gallon, Clear

Third one is the Kegco KC FP-CB-06 Glass Carboy. While many brewers prefer the plastic conical, there are also some who like the other ones which have a thicker fermenting vessel, and this glass carboy is one of it.

This is a clear gallon with good quality, which we can attest to as we have used one before. It is a good deal because it allowed us to make as much as 5 gallons of beer. Since this can carry a total of 6 gallons, it was easier for us because we had excess gallon space.

Although it is not that easy to clean because of its size, we’re still pleased with its quality. It is not like plastic that breaks down with continued use and time. It also doesn’t scratch easily like the steel conical. Also worth a mention is the fact that it does not hold odor.

6.5 Gallon plastic fermenter with lid

Last but not the least, the 6.5 Gallon Plastic Fermenter. This is the perfect one if you prefer to make multiple batches of homebrewed beer. With its rubber grommet installed and hole-drilled lid, it’s quite airtight, which makes it ideal for storing beer.

Unlike the stainless conical, this has volume markings on the backside of the bucket. It also comes with a good handle made of heavy wire which made it easier for us to carry even when it’s full, unlike the glass carboy.

In addition, it can store more volume of beer than the carboy. And because this was made from high quality plastic, it does not harbor odors. With the high quality plastic, it doesn’t break as easily as other offerings, especially ones made from glass.

Not everyone can brew a good beer, but with the help of these equipment that we listed and a bit of practice, your skills in home-brewing will surely improve, which may even lead to you to being the best brewer in your city!
