This versatile Chapman™ 7 gallon fermenter is made entirely of stainless, and features a silicone gasket in the lid for positive sealing. Gallon markers are inside, and a 1/2" NPT three piece stainless ball valve (weldless) is included. 21" tall including airlock, 13" in diameter. An excellent value in a stainless fermenter for both beer and wine. Includes airlock and sealing #10 stopper. (the gromet shown is no longer used). Made of 24 gauge type 201 stainless.

See below for a video on how to install the 3 piece stainless valve:

Note that these are economy fermenters, made of 24 gauge type 201 stainless steel. This stainless grade is good enough for beer, but should not be used for highly acid Kombacha ferments. Also, they typically have surface scratches from the manufacuring process, as well as spot weld marks on the interior from affixing the handles.

This fermenter is so easy to clean after use. It`s perfect for brewing 6 gallon batches of brew.

Is the inside bottom flat or conical shaped?

Can this be used to ferment kombucha as well?
Not recommended, as Kombucha is more acid than beer.

Not a question, but a request: I'd like to see an option to forgo the ball valve, so it's just like my plastic bucket fermenter. I would rather transfer with my siphon and not have to clean the ball valve.
Thanks for the suggestion, we will look into this.

Is it feasible to boil in this unit,then chill and ferment?
You could boil, the problem is all the trub would be left in the fermenter and may cause off flavors in the final beer. Better to transfer off the trub sediment after boiling. If you did this and then temporarily held the wort in another container while you cleaned the kettle of trub, and then poured the wort back in, it would work.
