This complete kit contains everything that you will need to ferment and bottle a 40 pint/23 litre batch or beer, cider or wine. We have not included bottles as they are so widely available recycled from pubs and your own consumption.
This product perfectly complements our beer kits
The kit includes:-
1 x 30Ltr Fermenter with fitted tap and airlock
1 x 30 Ltr Fermenter with Bottling tap, bottling stick and airlock fitted (Colour and Design subject to availability)
1m of Silicone tube for transferring between Fermenters
Triple Scale Hydrometer with 26cm Plastic Trial Jar
Hand Crown Capper
200 Bottle Caps
0.5 kg Sodium Percarbonate Cleaner
Optional 30 watt heat belt, if you are fermenting in a cold area this can help maintain fermentation temperature.
Having two fermentation vessels allowing the easy transfer of wort after primary fermentation makes the beer clear quicker, this is carried out using the supplied silicone tube that slips over the black tap and does not require any fixture. We have included enough so that the tube will drop to the very bottom of the second fermenter, this greatly reduces oxygen pickup.
Using the hydrometer and trial jar checking the original and final gravity can be carried out by taking a sample from the tap.
Bottling is made simple by the bottling stick that has a valve stopping the flow without needing to turn the tap off.
The supplied 26mm crown caps can be applied to any regular 500/330ml commercial beer bottles using the hand crown capper and of course the whole kit can be cleaned, then sterilised using the included sodium percarbonate and no rinse sanitiser.
Once used the cleaned kit can be stored with the taps removed and the fermenters nested inside each other and will take up very little space.
