13.5 Gallon Conical Fermenter
The Minibrew® Big Kahuna - 13.5 Gallon Conical Fermenter
If you are ready to start 10 gallon batches, the 13.5 gallon Minibrew fermenter is ready and waiting. We took the same design and science from our 6.5 gallon tank and created the Big Kahuna! The same lid system, the same component set as well as the same 60 degree cone. Fermenter comes with the thermometer.
Collect trub and yeast for your next beer from the large bottom valve, and skip the secondary fermentation vessel. Save your brew for drinking!
Forget about siphoning and pulling all the yeast and trub out along with your beer, with the included racking/testing port, which is found on the Cone of the tank.
Eliminate potential contamination opportunities by completing your fermentation in one vessel. Once you have your wort in the fermenter, it will not be opened again until you are ready to keg it, or bottle it. You may want to dry hop, and in that case you can simply unscrew the lid to make your additions. If you are flavoring certain recipes may call for an addition several days before kegging (or bottling), and in that case you can use the lid or simply use the Cork & Airlock port.
When the time comes to transfer your batch, you can use gravity, a pump, or you can transfer under pressure. Your choice, your preference.
The same 4" lid is shown below with a Red O-Ring and also with a Black Gasket. For those who have the 4" lid with the Red O-Ring, from a prior model, that lid will also fit this model tank.
Experience brewing at home like the professionals. When transferring, you can also use Pressure to make it easier, cleaner and with half of the work!

EZ Seal Weldless Bulkhead Installation - Be sure to keep the ribs of the gasket against the tank walls. I recommend commercial grade, Teflon Tape. Follow the instructions on the tape for the number of Optimal Wraps. Wrap the entire set of threads on the bulkhead as well as on both ends of the Hex Nipple. Tighten and Secure, but not too tight otherwise you'll lose the benefit of the ribs on the gaskets.
PHOTOS OF THE OPEN TOP TANK WILL POST SOON. The Larger Lid will fit snug on the tank, and will also contain a 4" Lid in the center (a lid within a lid).
