The MiniBrew™ - 13.5 Gallon Conical Fermenter

Custom Designed by Homebrewers for Homebrewers

The 13.5 gallon Conical Fermenters are perfect for doubling your standard 5 gallon batches.  Designed with either an Open Top or a Closed Top, these tanks are easy to modify to suit your personal brewing style.

Now you can brew with the same advantages as your favorite brewpub or craft brewery.  

We've also added a brewing thermometer. This port allows for easy conversion to a digital thermometer with ease.  

The Conical Bottom is a 60º angle from the cylinder. The slope is just the right angle so the trub, dead yeast cells and everything falling out of suspension will slide to the bottom at the apex of the cone.  

Designed specifically for homebrewing applications, each feature was carefully chosen to offer the greatest utility, durability and ease of use.  Newly added features allow our tanks to provide the most value in their class. 

Affordably priced, our Conical Fermenters can be purchased alone or with several different kits to your homebrewing experience complete.
