Description

Most winemakers appreciate the simplicity of using a keg for topping up barrels... apply nitrogen or argon gas pressure and you top up your barrels as needed. The Kegmenter fills this need perfectly with a large 4" TC lid and ball lock posts. The posts are recessed which allows you to stack these kegs up to 4 high. A 4" T.C. end cap with pre drilled hole is also available (H691), which can be paired with a #3 stopper and airlock.

Features:

  • Rated up to 3.5 BAR (50 psi)
  • 4 in tri-clamp lid
  • Ball lock posts built into lid
  • Floating dip tube
  • Pressure Relief Valve
  • Stainless steel 1.8 mm thick

Use:

  • As a stainless steel fermenter that is easy to clean
  • Great choice for 5 gallon ferments
  • Easy to pressurize the kegmenter after fermentation to push through a filter and into another keg
  • Fermenting under pressure, allowing co2 to exit via the relief valve, reduces esters and fusel alcohol production allowing you to ferment at warmer temperatures
  • As a cellar keg for topping up barrels
  • Distillation - with the addition of a T.C. reducer and condenser (H701 / DS120 / DS130)

 

Warning: Always depressurize keg before removing lid.

Does not include spunding valve shown in example photo. Please see FIL42A.

I would like to ferment and carb in the same vessel. I like that it is larger than a 5 gallon keg and the floating diptube is great.

What are the dimensions with/without disconnects?
Matthew Riley on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Matthew - Our database shows dimensions as - H15.75, W15.75, L16.5 the disconnects add approximately 3/4".
Is this a full-height (skinny) 1/4 keg or the full-diameter (stubby) "pony keg"?
Curtis Kendall on Nov 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello Curtis - Our database shows this with a diameter of 15.75.
What would be the best way to add a thermowell to this?
Seth Clearwater on Nov 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Seth - You would need to implement serious modification to install a Thermowell to a Kegmenter. Ex: drilling and welding
Is there anything special you have to do to clean the keg before the first use?
T Alex Glaser on Jul 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I have 8 of these now. I start by flushing 160F PBW through. On ALL of them. For the first time I get what looks like oil settle on top of the fill. I run the mix for a minute or 2 until no more oil forms on top. I dump the hot cleaner and flush with a light citric acid solution to neutralize. Then I follow with a 160F 10% citric acid mix to passivate for 10-15 min. Dump w/o rinse and allow to air dry fully. Just before use I soak in starsan while brewing, and dump just before pitching.
can the floating dip tube be easily replaced with a solid one? say one from a corny keg, cut to length?
Clint Rock on Mar 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Clint - Yup, that should be relatively simple as long as the replacement dip tube is cut to length and is compatible with ball lock posts.

A good value but welds not as sanitary as other kegs I own.
Seems like a great value for the price as finding these on secondary markets (10 gallon corneys I mean) is not easy.
Subtracting a star for how many welds inside that seem not to be as high quality as other kegs I own.
Also subtracting a star for the float ball appears to be connected to the dip tube with a silver solder connection. Not a sanitary weld. I'm a little disappointed there.
But again overall it's a good value if you can live with those challenges.

awesome
If you like lagers ferment with this under pressure 14 to 16 psi @ 68 to 72 deg cold crash after 5-6 days add geletan transfer under pressure to serving keg conition for 2 days your beer will be clear and carbonated ready to drink @10 to 14 days grain to glass lagers with no off flavors this kegmentor for me has truly been awesome you however need a gauge and a spunding valve i think for the money this is a more durable fermenter than the fermentasauris and it fits in your frige with ease
