Fermenter is also called CCT (Cylindrical Conical Tank), FV (Fermentation Vessel), primary fermentor or unitank as they are used both for fermenting and lagering. Fermenting is the process during which the yeast transforms the wort into beer. Lagerings takes place after fermenting and is the time given to the beer to stabilize and age after fermenting.
Hermann stainless steel conical fermenters can be individually temperature controlled through glycol jackets and are mostly equipped with accessories such as pressure relief valve, CIP cleaning jet, sanitary sample valve, manhole,etc. The design of Hermann fermenter is based on our vast beer knowledge and especially the conical fermenter bottom and the fact that we combine fermentation and maturation in the same vessel is very important. When calculating your fermenting and lagering capacity and configuration, sufficient time for fermenting and lagering to produce quality beers must be taken into consideration.
