8 Gallon Conical Fermenter - 8 The Great
The Minibrew® "8 The Great" - 8 Gallon Conical Fermenter
Want to step up to the next level? Need additional head space for higher gravity fermentations? Want to see your temperature? Add a digital thermometer & InkBird?
We have added a few extras to The 8 gallon Minibrew® affordable conical fermenter. This 8 gallon tank will work perfectly for 5 gallon batches, we just wanted something with a few more bells & whistles!
The first being the extra space afforded in this tank compared to the smaller, 6.5 gallon fermenter. The other addition to this tank is the added port for the thermometer. Included is a 1/2" EZ Seal Weldless Bulkhead, with 1/2" plug. Thermometer is Included.
Collect trub and yeast for your next beer from the large bottom valve, and skip the secondary fermentation vessel. Stop the siphoning and pulling all the yeast and trub out along with your beer. We've made the racking process simple with the included racking/tasting port. Testing gravity is now a breeze. Eliminate potential contamination opportunities by completing your fermentation in one vessel. Allow the 60 degree cone to work for you. It is that easy!
Included with your purchase you'll find everything you need to do to begin enjoying your own home brew.

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.
