Our Siphonless Fermentor completely eliminates the need for messy siphoning with its unique invert tube valve, which keeps silty sediment out of the valve during fermentation, and acts like a siphon hose ideally placed just above the yeast sediment when draining. Made entirely of food grade plastics (no BPA), our Siphonless is a rugged and easy to clean fermenter. All parts are easily disassembled for easy cleaning. 

 6 gallon (total volume) fermenter holds 5 gallons of beer, with room for foaming. Gallon markers on the side of the translucent Siphonless make it easy to  measure half batches, or water to fill a brewing pot. The lid features a hollow rubber gasket for an air tight seal. The valve fits the 4’ of 3/8” tubing included for oxidation-free transfer of the raw beer into our Priming Tank.

Includes invert tube valve, lid,  airlock, 4’ of tubing, and illustrated instructions. 21” high (including airlock height), 13” deep. Withstands temperatures of up to 170° F.

A nice way to ferment your beer

Review by DAVID on 9/30/2005

Pros: Plastic is lightweight, nearly unbreakable, easy to handle, and easy to clean. The WB spigot leaves most of the trub behind, and the translucent color and volume marking make it easy to estimate how much wort or beer is inside.

Cons: Plastic scratches easily and can absorb colors, odors and (more importantly) flavors. It is also not suitable for long-term storage, such as fermenting a barleywine. And this is a little expensive for a plastic bucket.

Great Product

Review by Michael W. on 11/21/2005

Pros: Light weight. Greatly eases the process of bottling and fermenting with a secondary

Cons: Greater risk of contamination, though every batch has been great so far.

Great Fermenter

Review by Chad C. on 7/22/2006

Pros: Time and again William's makes sure that only the best products are sold. Are plastic buckets different? YES! Trust me - they are not all the same. The siphonless valve with the invert back nut is the best set up available. And, a close inspection of the lid for this fermenter reveals a gasket the demands a perfect seal - you won't find this anywhere else. And, it seems to be much more scratch resistant than the others out there. As plastic fermenters go, William's has the best one available.

Cons: None.

A good fermenter

Review by Gavin S-L on 1/28/2007

Pros: Very durable plastic, no problems with oxygen or contamination with this fermenter. Scratch-resistant, as long as you're reasonably careful. Overall, I'd definitely encourage anyone to buy this fermenter.

Cons: Though it's food-grade plastic, the nozzle inside the fermenter is easily stained (and even bleaching the hell out of it doesn't completely get it white again). Other than that, no complaints.

Q: Can you just purchase the o-ring for the outlet spicket?

A: We do not sell this separately, although we sell a replacement valve that includes this part (item E39).

Q: I need a blow off tube for this. Been using some very active yeast and it just clogs up the air locks. Tried three different pieces of tube I had on hand and none came close to fitting snug in place of the air lock. What size tube can we use?

A: If you have our more modern Siphonless lid with a 5/8" hole, our item J58 thick wall thermoplastic tubing works although you cannot see though it. It is a bit of a squeeze, but you can also get our J58 1/2" Silicone Tubing to work
