IMPORTANT NOTICE: When using this vessel under pressure. You must perform a water pressure check to ensure your connections are leak proof. To do this. Fill your FermZilla up with water, then apply a minimum of 15psi pressure to the vessel.  Occasionally these units may come with some small indentations/dimples/dents from shipping, this is just a reality of shipping large blow-moulded thin-walled vessels. But dont panic, these fermenters are designed to endure minor deformations such as this.  All small dents will push out and settle with use and positive pressure and are only an issue and warrant replacement in the rare event they start to show white stress patterns.

Maximum temperature is 130 degrees F., if you pour boiling or near boiling wort into this unit, you will ruin it, and heat damage is not covered by warranty.

Q: Why do you ferment under pressure?

A: Lots of material online if you Google 'pressurized fermentation'. Most do it for cleaner flavored lagers that tend to ferment faster when under pressure, although many claim ales have cleaner hop flavors when fermented under pressure. You also save C02 if you use a FermZilla as a keg at the end of the ferment.

Q: How tall is just the fermenter, without the stand or the airlock? Thank!

A: The tank is about 30" without the valve or collection jar attached and about 40.5" with them attached.

Q: Minimum batches size?

A: 5 gallon is as small as you would want to go. You could go smaller, but you would need to purge it with Co2 first.
