The Kegmenter features a 50 PSI rating (with an included lid red relief valve set at 35 PSI) so it can be used as a keg or as a pressurized fermenter if desired. The 4” diameter lid makes it easy to clean out, and adds the ability to add dry hops and other additives either during a ferment or after kegging. The relief valve is standard Corny style, and can be swapped with other corny compatible valve with different pressure ratings.
Convert a Kegmenter into a 10 gallon capacity flame fired or electric distilling unit with the optional 4" Tri-Clover Adapter (item Z49), 2" Tri-Clover Clamp (item Z57) and Kegland Pot Still Condenser (item B78). To make the Kegmenter electric, drill a 32mm hole near the bottom and install our 1600 Watt Heating Element, item X97.
The ability to hold up to 50 PSI also means the Kegmenter can be used with an adjustable pressure relief valve to naturally carbonate in the keg, or to push beer out when the ferment is done with C02, either into smaller kegs, a filter, or even dispense from the fermenter if desired. 23” tall, 17” wide.
Note: The Kegmenter we sell includes the upgraded Ball Lock Post Lid with floating beer pick up tube, and does not come with the flat lid pictured in the first part of the video. It can be used right out of the box as a ball lock keg. This Kegmenter is tall enough to fit the Temp Twister.

Q: can the 13.2 gallon kegmenter be used as a boil kettle for a 10 gallon batch?
A: It could be used as a brew kettle, but the 4" hole on top won't give you much room to stir and add ingredients.

Q: Will this fit in a standard chest freezer?
A: It is 22" tall and 17" wide. Be sure to allow for 4" above the keg to allow for your ball lock fittings if you are dispensing from the chest freezer.

Q: If I wanted to use this as both a fermenter at times but at other times as a serving keg, can I get a replacement dip tube to adjust the length of one without having to deal with one permanently cut dip tube? How long is it compared to a standard dip tube
A: The liquid dip tube in this item is 19.75 inches long. A standard 5 gallon dip tube is 23.25 inches. The width is standard, so any other modified dip tube you wanted to swap out will fit, widthwise.
13.2 Gallon Kegland Kegmenter
I'm really happy with the kegmenter. I bought the 13.2G version so that I could ferment 10 gallons at a time. I currently have a 5G system, but I am thinking about moving up to 10. My last brew day, I decided to double my batch and did back-to-back mashes. I was able to ferment ~11G under pressure for the first time. It was a hazy DIPA and it turned out great. Pros: - ferment under pressure - closed transfer to serving kegs - Stainless Steel lasts forever and easy to clean - versatile. I plan to purchase the Still adaptor and make some er-um- hand sanitizer. Cons: - the biggest complaint that I have with this is that the Gas and Liquid ports are not marked. - I ended up having a bad gasket. Luckily my LHBS had one, so that didn't turn into too big of an issue Would I recommend/purchase again? yes.
Do not buy this product
If you are in the market for a fermenter with the ability to ferment and transfer under pressure, do not buy this product under any circumstances. The lid and o-ring are both defective. The o-ring that comes with the product is so flimsy that it can't hold pressure, but this was an easy fix by replacing it with a more thicker o-ring. However, the lid itself simply doesn't work. The liquid out post will not allow transfer of beer with the ball lock disconnect fully attached. Instead, I have to hold it down manually but not let it click into place in order to get any flow of beer into my serving keg. Seriously, do not buy this product. It does not work as intended. If I could return it I would, but the shipping is too expensive. It's basically just a keg with a 4 inch tri-clamp fitting because the lid itself is worthless. William's Responds: Sorry to hear of the problems with your kegmenter. Regarding the lid, we are not sure why the liquid out post does not allow the transfer of beer when the ball lock is down. This is a first for us. We are going to send you a new lid assembly which should solve the problem. Let us know if this works, or if you have any trouble with the new lid.
The fermenter is well made and much easier to clean than sanke kegs that I had been previously using. I will likely get another in the near future. The still option is cool if that is what you are in to.
Dual use - great quality
This works great as both a serving vessel as well as a fermentor. I bought a 4" to 1.5" tri-clamp reducer for a better blow-off valve. Works great!
Looks Great, Feels Great
The keg and welding is of high quality, I 10 gallons of NEIPA in right now carbonating... i’ll know I a couple of days how the keg held up to the carbonation task, and how well it dispenses? I will follow up! Cheers
