Brewing Conicals, Unitanks, Brite Tanks and Accessories

Have you ever thought to ask what is a conical?

In brewing, a conical usually refers to a cone shaped fermenter, however unitanks and brite tanks may also fall under this category. Also called a cylindroconical fermenter, this equipment is a smaller version of what commercial brewers use. As a scaled-down version of a unitank, conicals allow primary fermentation as well as conditioning at the same time.

Unlike flat-bottomed fermenters, conical fermenters come with a port at the bottom of the cone that is used to dump the yeast and other sediments that have settled at the bottom of the container. Conical fermenters also come with a port found above the cone that allows home brewers to draw samples of their beer for testing and tasting. This port also makes the transferring of beer to another container very easy.

The main advantage of a conical fermenter is that they aid in separating the yeast from the beer, making cleanup very easy. Most conical fermenters are made from stainless steel which is an inert material that does not influence the flavour or colour of the final product. (more info below)
