Fermentasaurus Conical Fermenter - 35L Uni Tank With Optional Ball Lock Posts

61 reviews
Size Guide


After testing both the Fermentasaurus and Fermzillas and selling many of them both it's our opinion that it's much easier to use the Snub Nose Fermenter which doesn't have the valve assembly on the base. You can still dry hop, still harvest yeast if you chose, still transfer under pressure but not have the issues of leaking, stuck valves, difficulty with cleaning etc. for cheaper in a smaller space for the same volume and the pressure kit is included in the price!

Information below is about the Fermentasaurus which we are not stocking anymore for now but most of it applies to the Snub Nose as well.


The Fermentasaurus 35L Conical Fermenter

A complete package with the fermenter and 23L premium keg package

The Fermentasaurus With Our 23L Premium Keg Package... Just perfect!

  • Our motto at iKegger has always been "forget bottling".
  • We have made it our mission to take out the labour and headaches involved with that process and now we are taking it up a notch and simplifying the fermentation process too!
  • These AUSTRALIAN MADE fermenters are genuine UniTanks as they combine a lot of steps into one simple process and vessel.

Watch How To Do A Brew Start To Finish Using A Fermentasaurus


The Problem With Buckets

  • Transfers between containers equals more chances for infection or oxygen contact.
  • Trub (sediment) is in contact with your brew in the bucket and can alter flavour of beer if it's left sitting too long so you generally transfer the brew into a secondary vessel (bottling bucket etc) and then from there into bottles or kegs.
  • Yeast is generally wasted as it's difficult to collect for re-use without contact with air / contamination.
  • You always need to carbonate brew after primary fermentation via force carbonation or secondary fermentation.

How Does A Conical Differ?

  • With a conical there are no transfers.
  • The sediment all settles into a collection jar for easy removal.
  • You can save the yeast for your next brew or dump it out.
  • Your brew isn't sitting on the yeast sediment so you can leave it in the fermenter indefinetely until ready to bottle or keg.
  • You can replace the yeast collection bottle with the included barb outlet to fill your clarified beer directly into kegs or bottles.

What's The Pressure Kit?

  • Brewing under pressure speeds up brewing and also reduces ester production.
  • Using a spunding valve to adjust the pressure during fermentation the brew will be carbonated once primary fermentation is complete.
  • The floating dip tube means you can draw the brew from the clearest part, the top.
  • You can attach a tap and regulator exactly as you would to a keg and serve directly from the fermenter.
  • You can transfer to keg using gas pressure with no contact with the air in minutes.

Good, and can only get better

Bought a Fermentasaurus with ball lock posts and a jacket, following up with a spunding valve for fermenting under pressure. So far I have mixed feelings - but would probably put that down to being new to it all. The fermenter got up to pressure but would not hold it, and the jacket methinks could do with some improvements. Firstly, the fermenter not holding pressure may have been my fault. Since its first use with a FWK, I've cleaned it and it now has a bucket of Starsan in it and I've added pressure of 10psi. Changes I've made are lubing the top seal a bit more, and leaving the spunding valve off. So far, so good, and pressure is being maintained. In a day or so I'll add the spunding valve back on and monitor it again. I'm sure I'll track down my error soon enough. The Fermentasaurus jacket does the job and fits nice and snugly. However modifications it could do with include: a better quality zip (mine catches in a couple of places); a couple of heavy duty fabric handles to assist manoeuvrability; A metal or plastic flat-bottomed dish with say a 1/2" straight side that fits into the bottom of the jacket - 2-fold advantage of allowing the fermenter/stand to be easily inserted and removed, and a muck catcher when installing and removing the collection bottle; possibly a tiny inside pocket on the jacket to hold a temperature sensor. Although I didn't do a proper post-to-post transfer, I did do a pressure-forced transfer from post straight into the open keg, and it was a pleasure. Love the floating pickup combined with the see-through Fermentasaurus! Ensured just the good stuff's in my keg. Shall give it several days of forced carbonation and then test the results, and shall apply lessons learned in my next FWK or end-to-end brew. And... cleaning was a breeze. Wasn't looking forward to it, but a properly sized and shaped brush did the trick. Fortunately too I'm a weakling, so was able to get my whole arm in there.

Fermentasaurus Conical Fermenter - 35L Uni Tank With Optional Ball Lock Posts

Overall experience using this item is good. Purchased during EOFY sale. A little slower being posted than a previous purchase. Minor problem with PRV not holding pressure that was dealt with very quickly with a replacement being sent to me. So easy to check on progress of first brew. Transferring the finished product was also so easy.

Awsome delivery time.

Delivery of the Fermentasaurus was quick and in one piece considering the distance, it had to travel. The ease of use is just great and with the uni tank ball locks we will fill our 5 ltr kegs direct.
