1/2 Barrel Chronical Conical Fermenter

Ss Brewtech’s top notch fermenter: The Chronical. Designed with the same attention on features, fantastic construction, and reasonable price tag as the BrewBucket, but stepped up in every way!

The Chronical has a full 60° cone, terminating in a Full Port 1.5” opening, making dumping trub through the included elbow and ball valve easy! Sanitary TIG welded fittings insure years of rustless contamination free brewing! A Rotating Racking Arm (patent pending) is set mid-way up the cone, allowing for the racking of trub free beer, regardless of how high your trub reaches.

A welded thermowell allows for easy and accurate temperature monitoring and control. Use a Ranco or Johnson Digital Temperature Controller with the Chronical to properly dial your fermenter’s temperature in to the degree.

Lid is easy to remove, and sealed in place with a molded silicone gasket. Full capacity to the rim of fermenter is 17 gallons, and with domed lid and a blowoff setup (see You Might Also Need section below), ferments can go cleanly and effortlessly! Laser Etched Gallon Markers inside denote what volume of brew you are working with. Eight spring-loaded Lid Clamps hold the lid in place, confirming that your Chronical is airtight, and can be pressurized to 5 PSI for easy transfers (see You Might Also Need Section below for our CO2 Adapter with Pressure Gauge).

Sturdy Stainless Steel Legs keep your beer off the ground, and allow for clean and easy access to racking and dump valves. We mentioned these legs are sturdy, and we mean it. They are designed to hold the weight of multiple Chronicals, stacked on top of each other!

An expansive features list like this normally carries an equally hefty price tag, but the Chronical is designed with economics in mind. At under $600, this piece of fermenting beauty is a steal for the quality and features included. Look forward to new products and great deals to come from SS BrewTech in the future!

Easy to use

First time I used the fermenter I was impressed, easy to use and even easier to clean.

Patrick McNabb
The best...

Why have I waited so long to ferment in the chronical? Such an ease to set up and first transfer yesterday. Clean up was a breeze. Only complaint is the lid gasket, seems over sized, so you have to do some pinching and squeezing to get it under the lip just right.

SS 1/2 barrel fermenter

I added the extension legs to my fermenter and while I was moving the fermenter around one of the legs started to bend. The fix was to add a plate to the end of the legs to tie them all together. Otherwise I love the ease of use of the fermenter.
