Description

Upgrade your home winery with an innovative, Stainless Steel, Brew Bucket™ Fermenter!  You will enjoy many of the benefits of a stainless conical fermenter but at a fraction of the cost and you are going to love how easy it is to use!  Made by Ss Brewing Technologies from polished 304 Stainless Steel, the Brew Bucket™ is not only functional it is downright beautiful. At MoreWine!  we know winemaking equipment and we truly believe this is a piece of equipment you are going to enjoy using every season.

While originally designed for Home Beermaking, the Brew Bucket has proven itself as a great addition to the home winery.  Stainless Steel construction means easy cleaning and long lasting durability, while a tightly clamped gasketed lid means no oxygen permeation and premature spoilage of your wine.  This is a great unit for small fermentations, test batches, and kit wines.  The entire lid lifts off, making additions or stirring of must hassle-free.  Cleaning is equally easy, as the stainless steel construction will resist tartaric buildup, and the wide opening allows for scrubbing if necessary.

We inspected and used the Brew Bucket™ and one of the most unique features that stood out is that the Brew Bucket can be stacked during fermentation, even with an airlock attached. We also like the conical bottom that allows trub to settle out in a concentrated space that minimizes the surface area of the trub that is in contact with your beer.  The included Patent Pending Rotating Racking Valve is also a brilliantly simple design allowing you to rotate the racking arm inside the Brew Bucket down during fermentation to minimize trub, and later up to get clear beer when racking!   Etched Volume Markers on the inside were super handy when filling.

The build quality is really amazing for the price. Welds are clean. The lid is strong and the spring loaded lid hatches are solid.  The lid includes a removable, molded silicone gasket that ensures an airtight seal.  We love an airtight seal so that we can be sure to see the airlock working.  The welded on stainless handles make the BrewBucket super easy to move. 

Overall: Very functional, easy-to-use, will last a lifetime, and looks amazing. Lets make some wine!

Features:

  • Certified Food Grade 304 Stainless Steel Construction
  • Patent Pending Stainless Rotating Racking Valve
  • 6.95 gal Max Capacity
  • 40° Conical Bottom for Trub Trapping
  • Nests for Storage, Stacks for Ferment!
  • Molded Silicone Lid Gasket
  • Spring Loaded Lid Clamps for Airtight Lid Seal
  • Offset Airlock Hole includes Silicone Stopper
  • Gallon Markers inside for visual volume assessment
  • Stainless construction resists damage and is easy to clean
  • 21” Height x 13” Width
  • 10 lbs

Note: 1/2" Silicone fits into the lid hole for use as a blowoff.  3/8" ID tubing is perfect for racking beer from the BrewBucket's valve.

I love my unitank but sometimes it’s overkill (or full) and this is a great simple fermenter. Blocks light, easy to clean, no concerns or scratching the surface and introducing bacterial, and easy to rack from.

What is the ID and OD of the hose barb (what size tubing do I need for transfers)?
Craig Zubris on Sep 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The ID is 1/4" and the OD is 3/8". I've been using 3/8" ID tubing, but I have to hold it, or use a clamp while draining the fermenter. 5/16" (or maybe 8mm) ID tubing would be a better choice.
The instructions state you should first clean the brew bucket with TSP. I noticed there is food grade TSP and not food grade TSP. Are these two different chemicals? Which did you clean with?
Jason Catanzaro on Apr 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Jason - Food grade TSP is added directly to foods for a couple different reasons, (Increase the "fluffiness" in bread/pastries and helps retain moisture in meat products). You want the non-food grade which is strictly for cleaning.
How much does this weigh?

Works well
Did a porter in it last week beer came out clean have to remember the yeast is below the drain and its about a half gallon next time I will add more to the tank to compensate I added to the 5 gal line should have went above it half way beer turned out great but only got 4.5 gallons. Next time I know what to do. Easy clean up nice features and looks like it will last as long as I don't drop the lid on it side might be hard to keep sealed.

Worked great, so I bought another
I brewed three batches and kept each at the specific temperature steps with the FTSs during repeated heat waves during the month.
Each batch was perfect! And cleaning the brew Bucket is so easy!

I recommend adding the right angle fitting to use a blow-off tube during fermenting, then attached it to CO2 to transfer into a keg to minimize oxidation.

Cheers!

Great step forward in fermenting!
This is a quality item for sure, and having run a batch through fermentation recently it is a lot easier in many ways than a carboy. It costs a lot more for sure, but cleaning/sanitizing, moving, etc. are much easier and worth the additional cost to me. Presumably the lifespan will be much longer (and safer) than a carboy. The conical bottom and the ability to “rotate the valve/racking arm” do combine to get yeast/trub out of the way while transferring beer out. I am glad I made the switch, but not being able to see the fermentation is a bit of a drawback.

Great product
My days of using a plastic bucket are over - I don't think I'd ever go back after using this. The only downside is the little plastic/rubber o rings that are used on the racking cane . . . they are so small, they broke apart after a few uses, and the replacements are hard to find. Seems like there's a better way, but I'm not faulting SS for this - they make a great product.

Great fermenter for the price
Wide top makes cleaning a snap. Stainless is super resilient to scratches and allows for easy sanitation. The racking arm sits above the trub and I’ve had no issue with sediment pulling over. The only drawback that I’ve recognized is the valve is small and difficult to clean. I also wish there was a way drop the trub from the bottom. But overall I’m more than happy with the brew bucket.

Best fermenter I’ve purchased
I have glass, and plastic fermenters (buckets, carboys, bigmouth) all have been reliable. But the brew bucket is so much easier to maintain and control. The ability to get into and really clean it and reach the bottom with ease is great. No worries about light or oxidation. And the racking arm lets you stay out of everything that has settled out. Very happy with spending the $ on it.

Best homebrewing fermentor, without jumping up to full conicals.
These are way easier and safer to clean than carboys. The bottom valve eliminates the need for siphoning and allows you to get more beer and less trub than with buckets/carboys etc.

I'm using mine with a Tilt controlling the fermentation temperature using a fermwrap. I get spot on temps and easy process.

Really a step up for me.
Great fermenter. Easy to clean plenty of room for trube. One of the O-rings on the spout went bad right away.

Top notch piece of equipment folks!

This thing is well built and incredibly functional.
This was super easy to set up. A quick Clean, then a soak to passivate the stainless, and then it took about 5 mins to put it all back together and begin fermenting my first batch. Love being able to use the valve to take a quick hydrometer reading without exposing the beer to oxygen. Great design. Incredibly happy that I added this to my gear. Will likely pick up the FTSs Temperature Stabilizer to take it to the next level.
